If the cover of this demo screamed out at you “middle of the road rock!”… you would be correct. It’s not bad, but if you want to rock out with some air guitar you might be disappointed. Songs like “Fight on the Street” have cool bass lines and are well written. There is nothing wrong with being middle of the road as long as you can do it well. Too many bands stay in that area to be safe. This appears to be a band that is doing this style just because it is what they want to, and it shows.
