Canyon
Empty Room (Gern Blandsten)

By: Alex Steininger

Using space as their friend, the airy, lightweight rock and sweeping melodies of Canyon's Empty Room are soothing, each song gently sliding from note to note, as the vocalist, in his effortless, but compelling voice, sings to you the songs in his heart.

I'll give it an A-.
