This is a great cd. This band is plain awesome, they are mellow yet upbeat.. something to be happy about. I absoutley adore 'I'd rather dance with you'

Riot on an Empty Street is an album full of raw emotion and intellect. The songs, as well as the voices, are supernaturally beautiful, yet are also accessable. The sentiments are relatable and the lyrics are written so eloquently that the lyricists emotions are apparent and will raise goose bumps. A most poinent line in Homesick illustrates the desire to have somewhere to want to be, rather than drifting aimlessly through space. And so the line goes, "...A song for someone who needs somewhere to long for." The sentiment is captured so wonderfully that one hardly notices their surroundings anymore. Listening to this album is like the entire world is melting away and all that is left is raw feeling. The music goes from deeply introspective in the first half of the album to fun and careless in I'd Rather Dance With You. The album resumes its depth and finishes with The Build Up, which showcases a beautiful female voice along with the two men. All in all, Riot on an Empty Street is an amazing album.
