The Review:

Hailing from Miami, probably one place you wouldn't expect prog to come from, Little Altas is the latest offering to the prog genre. Along with their song based prog they combine classic rock, pop with some modern rock. If you need to compare them to other bands, they are close to Izz, Salem Hill, Man On Fire and Spock's Beard but those are only guides as they have a sound of it's own.

All of the songs instantly become memorable and hard to get out of your head (a good thing!). There is not a dud on Surface Serene. Both the title track and "Can I Find It" are soon becoming part of my favorite new songs.

I can only see great things happening for them. Maybe one of those east coast festivals will take a chance and book them, at least for a pre-show. Again another CD that doesn't seem to leave my cd player. I enjoy listening to "Surface Serene" each and every time and it never gets old or boring.
