Secret Machines: Secret Machines

TSM Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
The Secret Machines seem to be at ease on their new self-titled record following the prog-rock attack of Now Here Is Nowhere (2004) and Ten Silver Drops (2006). What may have seemed more new on the scene in 2004, 2008 finds the Secret Machines with increased competition for listeners and at the completion of the record they hold their own. With six and seven minute tracks you know what you are in for but the eleven minute closer "The Fire Is Waiting" really highlights what the Secret Machines are all about with big riffs and low valley solos which caps another record that fans will dig!

Key Track: "Now You're Gone"

Band With Similar Fire: Pink Floyd
