There are very few albums that are so amazing that I can listen to it from beginning to end without needing to skip a not-so-great track. So when an album comes along that does just that, of course I get excited. I get even more excited when the band in question happens to be my great friends (and fellow University of Miami, School of Music alums), ANR.
You MUST check out their album "Stay Kids" ASAP. Pay particular attention to my favorite song on the album, "A Year of Solitude Pays Off." Those vocals...wow.
Get the album on iTunes.
And here, a great live video of another one of my faves "Endless Fields of Mercury"
