"Lanborn's vocals are amazing, Never the Bride just rocks... for a special treat check out Nikki and Cathy on the Encomium cd, a tribute to Led Zeppelin. They do a stunning version of "Going to California"... breathtaking !! I have had this cd for YEARS and still love it so much... wonder where they are now..."
If you like Etheredge & Joplin. You will love This Group

"I beleive the Guitarist was a guitarist for Robert Plant's solo efforts. The vocals on this disc are just stunning. How they never made it huge I will never understand.. It is a shame how overlooked this band is. From top to bottom this is 1 of the finest cd's I have ever heard... I do hope to hear more music from them in the future.. What a great band.. Fabulous vocals, full of passion and emotion and fire..."
The lyrics are weak

"I first heard this band on a tribute album for Led Zepplin, Encomium; they did a version of "Going to California" that just buried the original. It's hard to believe and/or explain; but, Never the Bride made "Going to California" into an absolutely rocking/emotional song.
Now, here comes the CD I've heard so much about. I special ordered it because it's no longer in print. I was disappointed - plain and simple. Granted, the vocalist has an incredible voice, but the lyrics are quite weak. If I remember correctly, every song is a love song and, for the most part, quite one dimensional.
I wanted so much to love this CD, but there's nothing unique here. The singer's voice and style is quite reminiscent of Melissa Etheridge; that is a compliment.
This CD doesn't deserve to be out of print. I can think of countless others that should have never been printed. I can hear where this band had potential. It's just that the lyrics failed the band.
I will order their live CD when it comes out. I'm still curious."
