Thanks to Metronome Magazine for the great review of our latest EP "Dream of Fire" in their May Issue!
"Sporting whirring keyboards, crushing powere chords, blistering lead guitar solos, a spot-on rhythm section and lush lead and harmony vocals, The Rationales, featuring singer-guitarist David Mirabella, drummer Mike Mirabella, bassist Sean Black, guitarist Chad Raleigh and keyboardist Matt Goldfield, blur the lines of Powerpop, rock, Americana, and Indie on their well written and recorded 5 song CD Dream of Fire.
The Rationales are a strong songwriting team led by singer-guitarist David Mirabella. Each player's individual talent is instinctively incorporated in the songs making them as powerful and convincing as any rock band could hope for. Recorded and mixed at Q-Division by Pat Dicenso (and Joe Tooley on "Radio"), that crew captured the Rationales essence in spades. All five songs are radio ready and listener friendly and should catapult the band into higher local esteem. [D.S.]
