Dave Rave can only be described as "manic" when it comes to live gigs. This album is as far away from manic as it posssibly can be. That's no bad thing. It has the feel of The Zombies "Englishness" about it. It throws up images of sunny days, picnicking in the countryside with acoustic guitars, cellos and violins providing the soundtrack to the blissfull pictures in your head. Mark's guitar playing is perfect on this. Great album.

This debut CD from Plastic Heroes hits you straight between the eyes, with the wonderful opener "Lover Boy" and takes you on a whirlwind ride through 11 more incredible tracks full of great guitar riffs and top vocals from both Marc Olivier (who is credited with most of the lyrics and music), and Simon Nelson. This was nominated for a Grammy in 2008, category Best Rock Album and the justifiably so.

There is nothing bad about this CD. Plastic Heroes are fantastic.
