Sunday Drive Bye
"Back to One"

Sunday Drive Bye
The Subtle Art of Overkill
(Walk to Run Records, 2007)

I do like a bit of power pop, and this song kicks butt. Vocally, it's definitely a head spinner, as vocalist Jonathan Sleep somehow manages to sound both like (someone I can't place) and Kevin Cronin of REO Speedwagon . . . at the same time! I'm not sure if it's he that plays the killer guitar solo in the middle, or if it was the other guitarist, Travis Navarra, but it rips, either way. It's most likely not Gary Richrath; that's for sure.

This song left me strangely meh about it. I dont know what it was truthfully, but yeah something was just kinda flatish about it.
