Reviews Of "The Action Poets" CD / How To Order A Copy
Included is the new version of the popular "Mesmerized", along with such tight, full-speed rockers as "Norman Fell" and "Crippled Mind" and the acoustic heavy metal "Boxed". Their slower, more haunting works are featured here as well, and plenty of jazz-style instrumental work. The record is kicked of with one such track, the jazzy-lounge number "Yak". Don't think "acoustic" means folk masses and hippie protest songs. It's all-acoustic all right, but with an emotional breadth and diversity which is unusual in ANY style of rock. "Alternative" in the true sense of the word.

(Features the original single version of the popular "Mesmerize" along with the non-CD B-Side "Billy's Olds")
The band's first record release. Feature's their upbeat, violin-driven folk rocker "Mesmerize". A great tune to get you started in the morning in a good mood. Also included is the non-CD track "Billy's Olds", a tense and powerful song which winds it's way between slinky minor-key rock progressions and acoustic onslaughts.
