O’Ryan fails to excite

O’Ryan’s debut is well crafted and will appeal to those who like music similar to this. The problem is that although O’Ryan tried to get a unique sound out of his album by working with newer producers the album still sounds like any other album you pick up within the genre. When listening to the album you can easily make comparisons of this album to artists like B2K, IMx and other pop R&B stars.

Local band is ‘Thought’-ful

Some bands play music so they can gain popularity and get laid. Others, like Conspiracy of Thought, want to educate people while slowly change the world. The local Riverside band draws from influences such as System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine, U2, Tool, and even Public Enemy to create music that is alluring and original.
