ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Review
The most distinctive thing about Damage, from a rock/metal perspective, is the voice of Barbara Moseley. She can easily hold her ground with such notable metal maidens as Lotta Höglin (Beseech), Anette Blyckert (Nightwish), and Liv Kristine (Leaves' Eyes, Theatre of Tragedy).
--Harvest Moon Music

Review:
You guys sound great! 'into the rain' is leonard cohen in a tarantino movie. Great guitars, great production, really everything fits -good luck with this.... before the death of the music business, this would have been an instant 'sign' with a big label.....this is about the best indie stuff i can remember hearing....keep me in the loop, I'm a fan.
--Tony Carey (Planet P Project and former keyboardist for Rainbow)

Review
With Anti-m's new sound, songs like LET U IN are sure to be Smash Hits! --John Dickson-SantaBarbara.com

Review
Barbara Moseley provides the strong and melodic female vocals...which can appeal to the more electronic/gothic rock crowd, and DAMAGE, DEEP, DAMAGE IN THE DREAM, LET U IN and RAGE all have a catchy/melodic sound to them as well.
--Tommy T.-Cyberage Radio/DSBP Records

Review
Rage- This song is an epic! Gives me the same feeling as "Kashmir". Great
guitar leads and nice harmony vocals.
Scott Smythe-08

Review
Barbara's vocals are brilliant a cross between Sarah Mclaughlan and Enya, that's a compliment indeed.
Alan T. UK 2008

Review
If I was to make comparisons, let's mix The Gathering and Pink Floyd, throw in a little Within Temptation and mix it up a bit. Then add a little electronica, and away we go.

Review
"Rose Of Love" - Instrumentally this is VERY Depeche Mode meets KMFDM!!!!
"Into The Rain" - I luv the dark feel on this one. Solid goth-metal ditty w/a Euro symphonic metal edge...I'd recommend it for listening!
"Damage In The Dream" - Gorgeous. Perfect arrangements and vocals here. Perfectly goth/darkwave/metal.

Review
A feeling of Evanescence while trying to make illusory jumps from one goal to the next.... Anti-M is an exhibition of different sounds fused by the will to reach an audience on a more profound level. Electronic sounds and dynamic keys, floating vocals, and driving guitar provide Anti-M with the arsenal to deliver the most DAMAGE.
--Ron Ingalla at Bryan Farrish Radio Promotion


Review
Satriani Meets William Orbit with a Bit of Bowie to Create a Masterpiece.

I like "Damage" - a lot. This is an amazing accomplishment for
the apparently Santa Barbara-based studio band. "Damage" does not disappoint.

The opening drones of the instrumental "Dreaming in Metaphor" set
the stage for this journey. At the get-go the talent shines in chord
voicing and chord choice. The ear is led to resolution that does not take
place. Instead, a more interesting motif is presented, and the listener is
beckoned to go further. When the guitar starts you are enticed to label
this music, but the smart listener (not me first time around) resists. Do I
hear Rush? Perhaps. The classical guitar flourish is tasty and provides
excellent contrast. A repeat of the guitar melody leads us back to the
drones.

"Let U In" snaps you to attention with its quick yet sensual opening
cry. The listener is treated to their first introduction of the truly
fantastic female vocalist. Benatarian verses and choruses explode with
power and meaning. The arpeggio coda is a good touch.

The Title track, "Damage", sans-lyrics, displays excellent keyboard
and guitar-doubled melodies. I may be wrong, but I hear acoustic drums as
opposed to the prevalent use of drum machine. The china cymbal works well.

The diamond of this music walks into the room via "Deep." Sublime
barely describes the level of perfection found here. The vocalist is
celestial, evoking the Seraphim. I am unable to listen to this song too
often.

The heavy guitaring in "Rage" holds this semi-instrumental down.
The effects applied to the vocals, both overdubs and electronic effects, are
well done. There is a definite middle-eastern tone achieved in several
parts. As one of the longer pieces, it continues to introduce new material
to the listener until it dissolves into drums and bass-like sounds.

The third name is this article's title shows up in "It's All
Inside." The short break-out launched at 0:52 is fresh. It ends quickly,
but resurfaces at 2:06. The vocals and composition is superb. What seem to
be real drums accent this song well. The herald at the end gets your
attention.

Syncopated lyrics in the verse lead off "Little Things." The Pop
sound of this song would make an excellent soundtrack for the latest "chick
flick." I hope the band takes that as a compliment -- those songs make a
lot of money! Direction: "As theme song ends, dissolve to long shot of
coffee shop on rainy day."

David {bowie} shows up again in "Beautiful Babe," both in the lyrics and thetimbre. In a change of mood, the female vocalist arrives, calls to the
man.and he answers. Then two are one. The sensuality of this song is
undeniable.

"Waita While" takes a very different direction. Moody, searching,
and longing melodies are woven into this tapestry. The underlying piano
holds this piece together while new tones are introduced throughout.

Plucked notes (on the bass?) start "Rose of Love." The mix of Devo
and falsetto works for this electronica. Although the guitar will not let
you forget that this is pure rock.

"Godzilla vs Rodan" demonstrates excellent synthesizer composition,
tone sculpting and sound mixing. The syncopation keeps this piece
interesting.

The wonderful ballad "Into the Rain" is an effective bridge to the
hard-cutting "Incineration." The guitar here defies criticism. Wow! The
guitar is mated with majestic soaring keyboard lines until it all slides
down to a slow dark dirge that is "Shiver." I am not completely sure what
"Shiver" warns of, but I'll be sure to avoid it.

Two longer pieces draw the record to its close. "Damage in the
Dream" could be seen as repetitive of other styles and material previously
presented, yet it presents its message. Dream leads the listener to "The
Sixth Extinction" which mixes traditional piano, classical styles and Rick
Wakeman inspired runs into a technical fury. The guitar enters to give us a
quick lesson before the piano finishes us off.

If you thought Anti-M got soft, "No Kill I" pushes that aside.
Guitars and keys knock your head off. Anti-M always finds the melody, (an
attribute of most Yes songs as described by Jon Anderson in almost any
interview). The lyrics tell us "goodbye," the guitar and drums push us out
the door to the gates of hell....but we are met by the angel once again
----- the crystal notes of "Deep" return and are matched with a lone music
box, as we look into the lonely eyes so Deep.

This is a masterpiece.

Motown

It's All Inside
This is a very cool album. The production is solid, all the songs grab and hold my attention, and there are several songs in particular that I think are very strong. Two songs co-written by Santa Barbara chanteuse Barbara Moseley were particularly resonant and stayed with me: "Let U In" and "Little Things." I think "Let U In" has some serious radio potential, and her vocals throughout the album are impressive. Also, some excellent guitar work on the album and, to my ears, a different feel than some of Anti-M's earlier material. I really like the different layers of ambient sound and interesting keyboard patches throughout the disc, as well as some very cool vocal effects. Great artwork, too! All in all, definitely worth picking up.
