CD Review: How do you know when you are on to something big as a music artist? When the person listening to your EP (me in this case) wishes that it contained, well, more - which is also the name of the band from New York City that submitted this project. More, which is comprised of Neil Mack, guitarist; Tom Morrissey, vocalist; Ken Torres, drummer; and Steve Kutch, bassist, has the crisp, modern sound of a band that's song-driven and well-rehearsed.

Their most commercial track, "Loosely," features the classic sound and production that will aid them in their pursuit of success and longevity. It's a tough song to get out of your head - even after it's played 10 times a day in rotation. Their follow-up, the MTV friendly and radio-ready "Signs," has an awesome arrangement that sneaks up on you and lodges itself in your memory, as does "Next To Me."

Those two songs in particular, and the entire project as a whole, is a great preview of More to come...

Advice: Make sure there is a ballad on the full-length CD to showcase your diversity.
