There are records. There are albums. There are cd’s. And then there is THEERTHMOOVSAROUNDTHESUN which transcends the mundane and is poised to be THE seminal release from Terry Sullivan and perhaps the best thing to come out of the New York Music scene since the days of Patti, Johansen, and Dee Dee.

With his Bowie-esque vocal style, lyrical swagger and polished production, Sullivan has compiled eleven tracks that take you from glitter glam to soulful rock anthem without a single recess or intermission. Humming along like a 1973 Road Runner with a well tuned Hemi, the hooks are clean, catchy and remind you of the days when music was an innovative escapade not a road already traveled. Unsullied by commercialism constraints, Sullivan is not afraid to weave synth, soulful ballads, and rock anthems into a daring and dazzling web that have you hitting replay immediately.

With a history that most rock legends only dream of, e,g, appearances on MTV, and in venues such as CBGB’s and Max’s Kansas City, Sullivan has shared the stage with everyone from the Replacements to John Cale and been influenced by the likes of Hanoi Rocks and Johnny Thunders. Now it is his turn to inspire others.

Stand out tracks include “Power World”, “Lorelei”, “Lamplight” and “A Party”. The latter is rather apropos, because THEEARTHMOOVSAROUNDTHESUN is just that- the party you’ve been waiting for and the invitation just arrived. In short, this release will race to the top of your cd collection with its license to groove---save the seatbelts, enjoy the ride.

5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
