This CD is very good and interesting.
Melodic guitar based progressive rock, from a band I’ve never heard of before. Taken from their home site:

“Driven are Jason Garbacz, Steve Lentz and Brad Martens. They have released three CDs; Optimism Kills, Wreckage, and Minor Mirrors. The CDs are full-length releases. The music is characteristic of rock/progressive rock. With strong melody lines and big guitar, keyboard sounds the band has found a sound of their own. The lyrics are related to past experiences and feelings of society.”

“Jason Garbacz is the bass player and has several years of experience. Steve Lentz is the guitarist and has many years of live performances throughout the Midwest. Brad Martens is the drummer and keyboardist and has been playing for several years. All three members sing lead and back-up vocals at various times.”

This is really good progressive music, performed very well from all the group’s members. If you like the style of bands like Rush, Tool, Kansas and Boston, the chances that you will like Driven is very good.
Give the guys a chance. Their music is absolutely worth listening to.
