The Artist I recently checked out the latest EP from Long Island 4 piece unit "Walking Sideways" who just released their debut, self titled EP late last year.


The band Standard 4 piece line-up which includes Erik Hagedorn (Vocals, Acoustic Guitar), Joe Brown (Guitar), Justin Cellini (Bass) and Chris Ciccone (Drums) I would say the band possesses above average to advanced alternative rock paying skills, and intermediate writing abilities. You will find a musical personality that is rich with Alternative Rock with a side of guitar driven-Pop-Rock. Timing is spot on within this genera. Hagedorn can hold his own on vocals but more importantly this band delivers music that is highly entertaining, passionate and uplifting in nature. The strongest aspect of the production is the polished crystal clean sound quality. The music possesses a clean Alternative Rock, Passion-Pop. All in all great music to get your head wrapped around. Will remind you of classic Dishwalla, Stabbing Westward and Daughtry. The songs Simply put - deep music with thought provoking lyrical content. I kept waiting for a weak song to come down the pike - I eventually gave up on that. The vibe Overall very thought provoking, melodic, progressive with amazing stories that possess incredible highs and lows. The CD has itís shares of positive moments. Simply put - very much like life itself this CD personifies life experience, with music that are 100% honest and pure. There is no attempt to sugarcoat the truth. The production is professional grade from start to finish. There's not many songs you can listen to time and time again. The good Crystal clear recording quality, solid production value, entertaining music and solid musicianship. The bad Song for song, note for note the EP is a tad bit repetitive. The ugly Nothing to report.  


The verdict Walking Sideways debut CD has everything: good chops, entertaining songs, heart felt vocals and music that makes a solid first impression. The Bottom Line WARNING - Listening to this music and studying the deep lyrical content will open you eyes to the dangers of Mankind and his reckless abandon.
