Quotes and reviews of gigs and albums.
" 'The Sky Fell Down' is an addictive song to the listener because on my second listen I found myself singing along with Mark. This track will be a chart mover. If you haven't found yourself moving to and fro to the rhythm or singing along with Mark in the chorus, then you better get your hearing checked!"
