What do you think of them?

Don't know if they are that well known in Europe already, but when I was in the US they played their number 1 hit "The reason" all the time and we finally got their cd to play it in our rented car and this song became something special to me as it always reminds me of my trip. Also the album's not bad.


and what does that name mean?

I seen them live two years ago at Manchester's Move festival. If im being honest, I thought they were terrible. But i guess if I knew a few songs, then that would have changed my opinion.

Really? I think the video is what made me like the song. I thought it was cool how she faked being dead so they could break into the vault.

Someone recommended their second album, The Reason, to me. I haven't really listened to it that much to be honest. The Reason and Same Direction are good tracks though.

I only know two of their songs: The Reason and Crawling In The Dark. Neither are great. I once met a girl who was obssessed with them. That's all

Keep On Rockin'

Their previous album was ok, with some cool riffs and basslines. The Reason is a boring song with 5th grade lyrics IMO.
I saw them live on TV twice, they rocked once and sucked once...
They were here in Montreal a couple of weeks ago, but I rathered seeing Finger Eleven, and do not regret it.
