|CD REVIEW Carmen Gray|
Band: Carmen Gray
Carmen Gray is a rock band that was formed around the summer of 2000. At that time, the band consisted of only three of the current members, Lappe, J.J and Pete. Later on that year, Nicklas joined the band. In early January 2003 O.J joined the band. O.J brought the music together and created the sound that the boys had searched for a long time.
After O.J's arrival, the band immediately started to look and sound better and even score a record deal.
On this new record of them, they try to combine various music styles from the 70's, the 80's and the 9'0s such as: classic rock, pop-rock, melodic rock, hard rock, garage rock,… It also seems they have like to use catchy hooks, melodic music, simple song arrangements and even like to keep it a bit emo now and then. Well this is definitely not for everyone since it is "soft rock", but that doesn't make it a bad record. This record’s really enjoyable when you want to hear something different and calmer.
