ALBUM OF THE WEEK
Status Green - "cheap sunglasses"
"Known within the Asbury Park scene as one of the 'next big thing' bands, 'cheap sunglasses' sounds like a calling card that mainstream radio should take note of. The songs are pop rock & roll, complete with sing along choruses, wonderful harmonies, and infectious music. This is a fun album. One day I hope to be able to say how happy I am to have played Status Green before they were big." - Lazlo
