Hmm.. I don't really listen to rock. But their songs we're okay. I liked "Cornflower Blue" from the selection.

Anyways, please enter me in the drawing. Thanks. =)

I like Cornflower blue and Atheists and foxholes. I really like the lead singers voice. I'll keep checking out their page to see when they add some more songs.

KissToBetray said...

I like it, it's definitely something I can get into. So Save Your Breath is probably my favorite out of song that they have up on there.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Carmen R: Thanks for checking them out and I'm glad you liked some of the music. I love his voice as well...new songs should be posted sometime in the near future, so definitely keep checking their page and add them if you have Myspace. :)

Oh my! They sounded amazing! They have gotten me out of my writers block oddly enough. o.O Jeez, I am definitely adding them to my myspace. I liked every song that they had on there. But my favorite was the Cornflower blue[Which is the one that got me out of my writers block.] I think my selection for it would be the Cornflower blue, So save your breathe, Atheists and foxholes and then If Blood mixes.
I'm glad I entered this contest. They are really good. Matt has a really really awesome voice. Sounds really cute. :)
Cynthia told me about this contests on myspace. Because I had told her on there that I had tried to check out her "Tantalize" at the library bc I have been wanting to read it really badly, but someone had checked it out the day before I got there.
How did you find out about this band anyways?
Also, I have a book review blog to if you want to check me out at http://www.thereaderssanctuary.blogspot.com

For some reason the last comment I posted didn't go through. And I wrote A LOT. :(
I went to The Remorse Code's myspace. I listened to them and they are WOW! I really like Matt's voice. Sounds really good. Also, Cornflower Blue smacked me out of my writers block, oddly. I was talking to Cynthia about how I've been wanting to get a copy of Tantalize because I have never read it and have been dying to. My friends have told me many good things about it and I have been talking to Cynthia and she is really nice. She told me about this contest so I decided to enter it. I also have a book review blog. You can find me there at http://www.thereaderssanctuary.blogspot.com if you like ^^. I think my favorite out of Cornflower blue, Atheists and foxholes, So save your breathe and If Blood mixes, was Cornflower blue. His voice really drew me into that song and it's also because it made get loose my writers block. My second favorite song would be so save my breathe, then If blood mixes and then Atheists and foxholes. :) I'm gonna add them. I hope to hear more from them. I just told about five of my friends about them including my boyfriend who is huge on music and knows all the good stuff and the bad. So I assure you that if he likes them, he will be telling many many people about them. And from the looks of it I think he does like them. He said that Cornflower blue was "pretty sweet". Which is good, lol.
How did you find out about them?

kisstobetray: Awesome awesome, I'm glad you like some of the music. Definitely add them if you have Myspace or just keep checking back for new music!

the readers' sanctuary: I'll definitely go and check out your blog after this. I'm so glad you liked the music...I love it a ton!...Cornflower Blue is one of my favorites as well, and that's awesome it helped with your writer's block. Inspiration comes from different places, and it's always cool to hear about!

I'm so glad your boyfriend seems to like them as well and hopefully he will spread the word. That's awesome you've already told some friends.

Good luck in the contest! If you don't win, I hope the library gets the book back soon. :)

Margay said...

They have a very interesting sound, more unique than some of what's out there today. I can see them becoming pretty popular. And I really love the name of the band - very original.

Alessandra said...

I think their music is okay. I especially liked Cornflower Blue.

Amber said...

Like many others, my favorite song was Cornflower Blue. I think each badn member is very talented and I liked the meshing of the lead singer's voice with the instruments. Their songs seem more complex than much of rock music. Please enter me - I would be thrilled to win!

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Amber: Entered, and I'm glad that you liked the music. If you have myspace and wish to add them, tell them we sent ya over! :)

Writer's Block Reviews said...

I think that they are pretty good. I have to let some music grow on me. lol. I'm weird like that. They are cool, though and I'll keep checking them out.

And, please enter me!! =)

Shooting Stars Mag said...

writer's block reviews: no, i understand that. I have to let certain stuff grow on me too. glad you liked it though. you should def. add them so you can remember to listen more later, esp. when they post new songs!
And you are entered in the contest!
