The entire album captivates. Lush is the first full length CD from Niki Barr. The CD starts off with the rousing "Wasted Time", and it just keeps on rocking the rest of the way. The band mixes high energy songs like Wasted Time and Sooner or Later with memorable ballads like My Breathing Heart. There isn't a song on here that I don't like. Wasted Time, Holiday, Nothing at All, Sooner or Later and So Far Away are easily Top 40 material. Niki has said in interviews that she wants her music to define her, and what a great definition Lush has made.

Today, in a musical climate where female-fronted bands such as Paramore and Flyleaf often make an easy comparison for the Niki Barr Band, the group’s intangible strength and confidence is enough to rival even the heaviest of the male-fronted bands. In fact, the group has even proven that it can hold its own by sharing the stage with such heavy hitters as The Cult, Shinedown, Papa Roach, Chevelle, Drowning Pool, Hinder, Trapt, Sevendust, Puddle of Mudd, and 10 Years

The Niki Barr Band is one of the hardest working bands I've seen in recent years, and their debut album was probably the most neglected piece of work in the industry - I hadn't heard a debut that good since the early '90s. Any radio stations that haven't at least tried putting her on their playlist are bonified morons. They are a talented band with their own sound, a blend influenced by metal and punk. This is one solid rock album from start to finish.
