Native Construct

– Quiet World (2015) 4.50 stars

This new and promising band from Boston is, to me, sort of a mixture between Haken, Dream Theater, and Queen with a touch of A. C. T and Symphony X thrown in. I can’t wait to hear more from this band in the future. Excellent!


Native Window

Natural Science

– This Side of Paradise (2003) 2.00 stars

Not sure where this band was from, but I’m glad it disappeared after only a single album back in 2003. The music was fairly good, but the singer was horribly out of tune and overly dramatic. Bye-bye. Nuff said!
