Standouts include the album opener, "Silhouette" (the greatest song Tommy Shaw never wrote), the Travis/Coldplay-esque "Light Sleeper," and the sweet acoustic strum of "Autumn Red." Already a hit back in their home continent of Europe (they hail from the northeast of Scotland, to be exact), it appears as though Driveblind has what it takes for global success.
