MS MR – Secondhand Rapture – CD

MS MR – Secondhand Rapture – CD The dark brooding electronica sound drew me in and the soaring harmonies kept me deeply involved. MS MR are a great blend of sullen and sultry with rhythm and hooks to spare. The lyrics are another strong point with plenty of...

Megadeth – Risk – CD

Megadeth – Risk – CD (Capitol Records) Track 1, Insomia start of the cd. This track uses classical strings to give the song a little different , but great sound. Track 2 is my personal favorite because I assume it is about Satan, or Evil in general. I...
