Www,essentialsrock.com In the world of rock 'n roll, "unique" is a word tossed around with often reckless abandon by those desiring to be just that. All too often however, what we end up with is a reconstituted mix of what's been done oh so many times before. Then lo and behold along come, "The Essentials." This New Jersey based band offers a sound that's fresh, comfortably familiar, accessible, and yes, unique. Their new CD, "Sunny Day," is a fascinating and entertaining tapestry of rock, ballads, and country. Coupled with their distinctly stylistic vocals, pleasing, intelligent lyrics, and first-rate musicianship, it offers a clean break from the morass of the everyday. The Essentials sound is entirely unpretentious and genuinely fun. It's music for the music lover who hasn't forgotten that above all else music is supposed to provide joy and pleasure to the listener, and it's these very things that The Essentials deliver in abundance. Here's what people are saying about, 'Sunny Day:' FROM: MICHAEL ANGEL, PODCASTER EXTRAORDINAIRE, COSMIC GRAB BAG: "Sunny Day' takes you back to a time when people knew how to write a great song and deliver it with the kind of energy that captures your attention and respect...If you want to experience what great music used to be like and where it should be going, then The Essentials "Sunny Day" is a must hear." FROM: MIKE G, FAN, U.S.A.: "Most main stream bands you get a couple of good songs and the rest of the album you can toss. With Sunny Day you can listen from beginning to end and enjoy it.
