Scott West & Sex On Sunday
Sex On Sunday
For A Pair Of Angels Music
www.sexonsunday.com


Wow, this band has got one impressive resume. It all starts with Scott West himself who has been composing, arranging and producing movie, video, commercial and television soundtracks for 15 years. Next he mixed in a little bit of talent beginning with former Stevie Ray Vaughan guitarist Timmy Barnes, next was former "The System" and "DC-10" guitarist/vocalist Perry Clark, and it even features current Cake bassist Gabe Nelson. You top it all off with Scott's high vocals that have had him compared to Freddie Mercury and you've got a one-of-a-kind album.

The entire album has a definite sound that would fit perfectly in the 1980s, alongside groups such as: David Bowie, The Beatles, and Pink Floyd. A good example is in the song "I Could Never Go For You"; while listening to this song, another song kept trying to creep into my head. Finally, I figured out that I was hearing a strong influence of "Roxanne" by The Police. This influence fits right along with the Freddie Mercury sound that is very apparent in the high notes heard in "Oh Boy". Although you get a little bit of a more modern sound in "Fallback", which is a rather mellow song that could fit on a Coldplay album, for the most part this CD is all rock.
