converting fans to the beauty that is The Name Rings A Bell That Drowns Out
A lot to say. The Name Rings A Bell That Drowns Out Your Voice is worth
every breath, though. A beautiful, emotive record that captures your
imagination and haunting fears, it is a record that somehow brings back all
your hidden thoughts and memories and helps you win them once and for all,
cleaning house and making room for the future.
A well-written, lyrically strong masterpiece of well-groomed pop music and
expressive rock, Knievel is not afraid to leave you with some important
piece of the puzzle, a thought to ponder while the glorious hooks,
captivating harmonies, and enchanting rhythms sweep over you before jumping
into a dizzying rock spell.
Knievel seems to have delivered an album worthy of your excitement, an album
that will take your mind off life for a while and leave you with something -
a feeling of control and direction- rather than making you feel like you've
lost your way.
Those that hear The Name Rings A Bell That Drowns Out Your Voice will
understand all of this. With one listen to the album it will all begin to
make sense. Relax and enjoy. You're in for a good time.
