Editor's note: you might remember these guys better if you slept together. Never Say Never. Ring a bell? I always thought a chick band sang that tune. Well, some will say that any band of dudes with a female lead singer is a chick band and I have to somewhat agree. This is RV's last album and it's a fitting coda because they sound ready to quit. I wouldn't call it a bad album but it's certainly lackadaisical. Kind of like that period between falling asleep and actually sleeping. A void all right, of connect and deliverance between performer and consumer. Some respectable artwork on the covers nonetheless.

PS Randy Jackson of American Idol plays bass on a few tracks. Thrilled? Yeah, me too.
