"23jinx-Curtains and Cannibals"

"23jinx brings an eclectic and tasteful full-length album to the table. From start to finish, Curtains and Cannibals is filled with driving guitar riffs, artistic bass lines and thunderous drums that fill the groove. The CD artwork portrays a vivid mindset of what this band is going for as a full package.

The album starts off with Gallery, which kicks in with catchy melodies over a chromatic chord progression and back-up harmonies all over the place. However, each song has its own emotion and feel. 23jinx does a great job of seizing the listener with fast, up-tempo tracks as well as slower ballad-like songs. The guitars particularly stand apart with a raw and gritty classic tone and just-the-right effects in all the right places. Singer/guitar player Reid Bateh gets creative with his playing and vocal melodies, while twin brother Blaze Bateh and bass player William Brookshire IV hold down the rhythm with solid in-the-pocket beats.

Overall, Curtains and Cannibals has a modern sound with a unique twist. Producer Phil Martin grabbed the tone from these three guys and brought it to life with a crystal clear and next-to-perfect recording. Several tracks will make great singles and would be perfect for the FM airwaves. (Self-released)"
