Bill Madden
New Religion
Mad Muse

Bill Madden writes socially conscious lyrics on his new album, and it has an appealing sound. "What is Ours" suggests an uprising of the common man, and has a very Lennon-esque melody to serve it just right. The title song is a heartfelt protest against the power of money, and Madden carries it off well. The tune is nice and the vocals passionate. "Mother" is a song about the environment, and how we destroy it. Madden's voice is softer and more pleading here. It's a powerful song.

"Deluge" closes the album with some dark and poignant recount of chaos. It's an epic song. It's a fabulous album all told.
