Fabulous! There are many "big name" groups that would give ANYTHING to create an album that is as CONSISTENTLY GREAT as Mike Sands' "Shot of Reality" . I LOVED IT!

Had me humming from the first note!
Mike Sands' "Shot of Reality" had me humming and tapping my foot from the very first note to the last! This CD is UPBEAT, ENGAGING and Musically INNOVATIVE! The whole album "moves"! Can't wait for Mike's next CD!

A well-balanced classic!
Great! With his debut album, Mike Sands has perfected a clear, well-balanced, classic style that so few artists ever achieve! I really hope he'll create a second CD soon, and I hope that will include Mike playing the drums in addition to his writing and singing on it! Lots of talent! I REALLY enjoyed this CD!
