What happened to these guys? After such a strong release in '94, I thought for sure these guys would at least develop an underground following. However, after this they just sort of dissappeared. In anycase, 20/20 Blind were part of the mid-90's Houston, Texas sound that bands like King's X and Galactic Cowboys made popular. Perhaps the difference in lyrical approaches halted their success a bit. 20/20 are much more open about their Christianity that King's X or Galactic Cowboys were. Regardless, still a strong album with some wonderful vocals, vocal harmonies and heavy guitar riffs. I will say, however, that there are a few sappy ballads ("Love Keeps Me Reaching") that sound like they are straight off a BonJovi album. I could have done without those. Produced by Brian Garcia who has also worked with the Cowboys.
