The history of Careless goes back around 25 years. While attending college three friends Edward James Collins (Dirty Looks), Walt Kosar and Nolan Ayres were writing and recording some original music. Over 20 years later the three decided to get back together to record again. Some of the songs on this album were written over twenty years ago and others were written recently and you would be hard pressed to figures out which ones were which. All of the tracks have a classic metal sound to them. I hear Iron Maiden, early Queensryche, Armored Saint and others. Plenty of other bands try to resurrect the classic metal sound. Many miss the spirit and come up short. Careless have the spirit, the sound and manage to connect on every level. On the twelve songs here I kept thinking there had to be some filler, but nope every song is powerful. Real metal with some melodies plus strong vocals and steady playing. If it wasn't for great production you might believe this was some long lost gem from 1983 or 1984. Definitely worth a listen.
