Hey Eric, I cannot agree doing reviews for SFK, and I think maybe where I and Andrew differ, my threshold may be lower for the sameness factor. I love melodic rock of all forms, and would love to see it succeed again, but I think maybe I hear too much music. Sometimes it becomes very difficult to separate it all when they all sound similar. It's becoming like that in my beloved power pop. So many of THOSE bands are also starting to sound too much alike.

Now, for the average MR fan who maybe only buys a few releases, they dont hear all the similarities that you refer to that some of us hear.

I'm not nearly the doom and gloom type Andrew pegged me as, but I'm also just airing an honest (and personal) opinion in which I feel the market is becoming a little glutted with too much quantity and not enough quality. And, depending on how exact you want to be, I find things like Evan And Jaron or Marv 3 to be pure melodic rock AND rather succesful in the US to boot. So not all is bad...

As for Tagleri, he's a punk ass! Hahaha...just kidding John, who loves ya?
[for those who think I am dissing John, I am not...we are friends!]
