Album Notes

Across The Room is disturbed, yet hopeful. When you hear them, you might get angry, you might empathize, you might contemplate, and you might even fall back in love. But one thing for sure, you will be moved.

Their new self-titled album follows in the same vein as their live shows. You'll find the energy of AudioSlave, the restlessness of Radiohead, and the depth of U2. The theme of the album can be summarized in the spirit of the band - they may lose the battle, but rest assured, they will win the war. It is a journey into the inner parts of the souls of this three-piece band, where their strength and passion is balanced by vulnerability. Steven Cox, lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter pours his heart through the pen. Scotty B, bassist, helps mold the songs with musical arrangements that are deep-seeded in his roots as bassist with B.B. King and other soulful artists. Enrique Platas, percussionist, adds the rhythmic foundation grounded in his Latin roots to come up with a sound that is truly unique to the band.

"We write about real life. The songs aren't always upbeat, nor are they dark. They are truth." says Cox, "So many times bad things happen to good people, but through it all, we believe good people get better at being great."

The track, Take That Road, introduces you to a young woman, on her own, against the odds, and searching for the answers to the question burning in her mind. She's not satisfied with living the mediocre life planned for her, and it's time for her to break out - even with the world rolling the dice against her. It's an experience we all deal with: how do we become our own person when it's so easy to become someone else?

Across The Room is also realist band, with the life experiences that taught them that sometimes life hurts, with no healing to temper the blow. The song "Numb" takes the listener on a journey of manipulation; falling in love and giving everything, only to find out that the person we fell for was not who they claimed to be.

In their debut album, ATR (as their fans have called them) has been able to reach inside and deal with issues important to them and their fans. You'll find overtones of softness and substance set against a backdrop of restlessness and tension. They have been able to appeal to both males and females because their look, message, and music are a representation of everyday life. The message is clear. They are disturbed, yet hopeful. Listen to the CD. Let them move you.

San Diego band's First CD is Respectable
This is a good debut CD with good movement and a nice variety of songs where none sound the same. The band runs from a Cure-type "Shades of Gray" to straight-ahead Rock & Roll on "Numb". The best song on the CD is "Take That Road" where the band tells a story that this reviewer relates to. I'd like to see them loosen up a bit. It sounds like they have a lot of potential, and they write very good songs, but sometimes I feel like they are not yet pouring out everything they have. Reach inside boys, let me see more of you.

I'm so happy that i finally found what y'alls songs sound like because i have loved ur lyrics, especially for the song "stay", for the longest time, but i never knew what it sounded like! i love y'alls music! g'luck!

San Diego Music Scene

Sure to be a Southern California Powerhouse
Evrery once in a while, a band comes along that's doing something different than the musical crowds. ATR is that band. While every other San Diego band wraps themselves in the punk garb, ATR seems to reach in deeper and pull out more meaning...

One of those hidden gems that you will be glad you discovered first
A good friend of mine in the music community, who scouts up and coming talent, turned me on to this CD and this could probably go down as the best lead to new music I have heard in the past 3 years. This CD blends many different genres of rock n' roll, along with brilliant lyrics. The CD feels like a fusion of Matchbox 20/Perfect Cirle/RadioHead/Coldplay, etc. My girlfriend fell in love (and had a tear) in the song "Shades Of Grey". My personal favorite was the hard hitting and passionate, "Down". Pick up this little gem and you will be playing it for all your friends.

National Recording and Industry Journal

Strong, Quality Album Rocks San Diego
This CD is a well-produced, quality piece of recording. The lyrics are strong, vocalist Steven Cox has a huge range, and the arrangements are clean. The drums and bass, played by Enrique Platas and Scotty B., respectively, add smooth substance for solid tracks. Influence of a diverse range of musical genres is evident below a talented rock-pop finesse. It is the best CD out of San Diego this year, not surprising for a region that is so eclectic. Two thumbs up!

Great show!
My friends and I go see these guys every time they play! The music is awesome, and plus they are really sweet people. They’re always ready to talk to their fans after a show, they’re cool like that, even when they played at Moondoggies and the place was packed, they were giving away free CD samplers and everything. Things are really moving for this band, and I’m so excited for them!
