In the course of thirteen years, the face and styles of independent rock has gone through a number of changes.
  All the while, Eleventh Dream Day have albumsscattered through the years and haven't given up with their brand ofstraight-on rock nor have they changed for whatever the latest flavormay be. The current lineup features Rick Rizzo, Janet Beveridge Beanand Tortoise/Isotope bassist Doug McCombs. The latest CD was producedby John McEntire, and while he has given the songs more depth than mostrock bands can come up with on their own, he hasn't left any muddyfootprints. There's nothing hiding Rizzo's or Bean's direct lyrics,fuzzy guitars and driving tunes. For those Sonic Youth rock fans and YoLa Tengo listeners out there, lend an ear to this record.
