“Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hear a merger between Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and Lou Reed? Well, wonder no more! The vocals are dark and melancholy – they have an intense quality that makes me stop everything I’m doing and just listen. The music surrounding the words pulls me along like a tide, making me drift away from reality without even feeling that I have an option. The Speed of Sound have a definitive sound for these times.”
Music vs The World

“.. cool mix of *punk_nastiness* and a touch of *The
Byrds_5th_dimension_LP* (know this one?) .. unusual mix! ..” Lord Litter, Radio and web DJ (Berlin)

“This is dynamite! The first release was good but this is plain TERRIFIC. I could name influences but why bother, it’s just enjoyable, creative and well done. Top-notch.” Don Campau, Radio and web DJ (California)

And- Song by Song commentary from listener Mark in Brazil:

You’ve Got To Move Too : Memorable riffs on a 12-string electric guitar. One of the best ones on the CD. Catchy, drum rolls, dominant double tracked vocals even a slight stutter, Who like middle eight.

English Electric Lightning F6 : Great bass line and piercing electric prog guitar, like a combination of Rush but with a bit of John Cale from The Gift.

No Kicks : 1980s Banshees vibe about it.

There’s No One There : Of course the old classic – but changed.

Temporary Fault : Lou Reedian.

The Changes : One of my faves – post-punk influences – Gang of Four?

Uhrwerk : Hendrix! I like weird alarm clock gap in the middle and as always the guitars are interesting.

Sit By The River : Neil Young’s Crazy Horse-style raw guitar parts.

Torrey Canyon : I wasn’t quite born when this happened but good idea for a song.

Intercept : There is nothing in the world like a bit of backwards guitar

Throw It Away : Killing Jokish – one of the highlights of the CD for me.

Overlooked : You are not afraid to let loose your inner rock demon. Awesome last chord!
