"Target Audience Review"

Stand Alone: Beside Myself
Category: Music


Stand Alone: Beside Myself (2007)
Review by Ellen Aldridge


"Voiceless" speaks to me in a way which seems ironic for two reasons. The first time I saw Stand Alone, at a private July 4 celebration, Kenny (vocals) could not attend last minute and I heard "voiceless" quite literally. Track 5 has always had an eerie presence for me since I first started buying CDs. Not that I don't start listening from track one, but it just seems track 5 on any new CD catches my attention and I hit repeat until I know every line of the song. The guitars kick in before the pre-chorus, "If I could start this over, rewind and burn the tape" explaining exactly how I feel about getting stuck on track 5 of any CD of any genre. (It also eerily reminds me of past mistakes and loves lost).

I love how the chorus and music work together to go from the start over line on to the melodic "voiceless" repetition in the first chorus and then "voiceless" is cut out of the second chorus and replaced by the almost spoken word lines of "I said, you know, let it go. We're falling through the cracks that isolate us every day". "Voiceless" feels like a generation song for those left behind by generation X. Where are we now anyway, generation Z, or have we come full circle?

Track 6, "Last Time", opens almost as an answer to "Voiceless" with its first line, "I'll have you to know there is no reason, this anger you show change with the season. We face it all…" With the movement of the guitars, bass and powerful drums Stand Alone packs each track with energy and passion. The lyrics go beyond the trite images of bands that "all sound the same".

The last track, "Paralyzed", ends Stand Alone's first Album "Beside Myself" perfectly summing up the feeling of a shadow. Perhaps, the shadow side of each individual's humanity and dark feelings haunting us all. "I can't help but fear the unknown" may seem a simple statement but we all fear letting those skeletons in the closet telling us we will fail; paralyzing us from following our hearts. "My shadow's paralyzing me" may speak to inner demons or to tormented love relationships. The beauty and double meaning in this song is the kind of lyrical style which will draw fans to Stand Alone and sing along with them as they soar to more mainstream music outlets and larger tours.

In live performances Stand Alone makes the crowd feel on the verge of a breakthrough. Mosh pits broke out during their July 28th show at the Masquerade while the front row of female fans sang along to every word. One fan even got on stage and danced with Kenny rather than being hauled off by some bouncers!

An incredible stage presence makes every Stand Alone show an experience.

Kenny Hathorne holds his heart and sings every
word straight from it, but don't just stare at his chest and miss the passion in his face!

Check out their Electronic Press Kit for yourself at SonicBids or visit their MySpace page at Stand Alone and make sure you order a copy of Beside Myself so you can sing along with the rest of the fans at the show!

Check the site often as I am sure they will be touring bigger venues throughout the country in the next year including a show in Macon, GA Sept 1 for the Q106 Labor Day Rockfest at the Powerstation. If you are anywhere near Atlanta, GA on Sept 21, 2007 make sure you check out Stand Alone headlining for Fervor at Center Stage during the 10th annual Atlantis Music Conference!

"Fly Away"

Sweet guitars!
You gotta love those guitars. The hook the beat, you find your head starting to move up and down. I really like the vocals, great placement of backing vocals, great blend. Oh, love that soft ending. This is a rock song you can't get tired of. Should be a movie soundtrack opener or hit drama tv show for sure. Anyone listening out there?

"EMERGENZA!!!!"

Stand Alone was also awe-inspiring. Their ability to capture the audience and hold them down with great compositions, tight vocals and ripping guitar work nailed them a spot at the Finals in Atlanta as well.

Please stay tuned for information about the upcoming regional finals in Atlanta on June 30th. Be there, Center Stage, and get your tickets early because if history has anything to say this show will be sold out!

Thanks for uploading "Perfect" to GarageBand.com. Congratulations are in order! Your song did a bang up job in Round 1 of the Active Contest,and held its own against some stiff competition. It's been reviewed by folks all over the world, been subjected to raw, unfiltered scrutiny from people you don't even know...and guess what?.... They liked it! The blood, sweat and tears have paid off.

Your song made it to the upper echelon of its genre, and will now move on to the next level to battle it out with its peers in Round 2. Songs in Round 2 will move through an entirely new review cycle, to be reviewed and ranked against the other top songs in their genre. We'll measure your new ranking based on a combination of this new data and the old data. When the dust settles, those left standing at the top of the charts will get a shot at moving on to Round 3 and be one step closer to getting played on Yahoo! Launch radio.
