Hi all,

I just picked this one up a few days ago and I am loving it. Especially the more melodic tracks laced with big harmonies. I cannot believe how much the singer's voice and the harmonies remind me of the '80s band called the Northern Pikes (anyone remember them?) All in all, the band sort of reminds me of what the Pikes would sound like if they updated their '80s pop sound (ie. added some punkish influences a la Blink 182/Green Day). I am truly digging this album. Fave track is, without a doubt, "What a Mess." Cool stuff. IMO, this rates waaaay above the Marvelous 3, Eve 6, and a number of other newbies. That's not a criticism of those other bands/albums, it's just an indication of how much I like SR-71.

re-post from the other board...


yea, just saw them last Friday night and was very impressed. Lead singer Mitch Allan is an unabashed fan of Guns
'N Roses (wore a GNR t-shirt the entire concert) and covered AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long as part
of their set. Pretty cool bunch of people--they stayed talking to fans and signing autographs for probably 30
minutes after the concert ended. Only about 200 people showed, but for a $6 concert with over an hour of live
music, I don't think anybody went away dissappointed and Mitch's farewell comment to the audience was
especially appropriate..."we're bringing rock back!!"
