The opening bars of this CD let you know you're in for something a little different; with it's Smashing Pumpkins style guitar riffs. The high-pitched wail of Billy Corgan that you'd expect is instead replaced with the soulful modern rock vocals of Thomas Flowers. 

Grunge isn't dead; it has just evolved. That is not to say that this CD wouldn't have been a smash hit in 1992, it most certainly could have been. In 2001 it's a refreshing reminder of just how good guitar driven rock can be. With tracks like "Yours If You Like", "Halo", "Benign" and "Unwind"—Oleander gives today's rap-rockers and pop stars a run for their money with exceptionally crafted songs, arousing melodies and enough riffs to keep guitar junkies happy.
