CD Review: Get Ready To "Approach" Kyoto Drive

From Europe come modern rockers, Kyoto Drive with a new album entitled “The Approach.” It was released on May 28th through I Am Mighty Records and carries a very upbeat sound with glimpses of hard rock, punk and pop mixed with catchy lyrics and guitar riffs.

The seven-song LP begins with slow-building 90-second introduction, “Receive This Little Breath,” which flows right into the guitar driven “Holiday.” “So Much Alive” comes off as a timeless classic rock song with a great pulsating drumbeat and sing-along chorus. Kyoto Drive shows us a bit of their pop side with “Breathe” before finishing with the punk-style of “Chapters” and the mid-tempo ballad “You Never Knew.”

Kyoto Drive has a show scheduled for July 1st over in Europe. For more information, check out the band’s myspace page at
