Mark Sobus rules!
Mark is a great bass of the best I know. And this album shows off his talent and chops nicely! I highly recommend it!

A Must for your music collection
Rock, Jazz, Classical and killer chops is what this cd is about. My favorite is Millenium Enema. You can't help just focusing on the lyrics. They so define this gray planet we live in. God Rest is very intense. This is one of Mark's solo pieces he plays live. Great job!!!!


Very Talented Bassist!
You should check this bassist out LIVE! Caught a Salt Lake City gig of the MIDNIGHT RHYTHM COMBO and this guy just GROOVES like no tomorrow! His sound just sucks you in...Good job, Mark!
