U2 on Magnetic Hill - from a Dream to Reality
Check out our random footage from the event:
Now a great memory, bringing U2 to Moncton obviously started as a deam for someone. Mud and rain aside, this world class event,
by all accounts was a huge success. Even the likes of U2 made some new fans during the past couple of days. I know because
I'm one of them. This song in particular hit home for me. So much so that I've put together a "dream theme" video using some
random footage from the concert along with an acoustic cover of "One". I hope you enjoy!

Sproll's "Eyes Have Spoken"
Music Review by Lee Rambas
Sproll's song "Eyes Have Spoken"
First, this is a great song with a good beat and rhythm.
It is clear to see that the lead singer puts his heart into it. It's this kind of passion that
makes the song more meaningful. Songs like this can really touch people and produce an emotional response. Vocalist
Corey Hachey both connects with his audience and has them under his spell.
Now, for the video itself: It's artistic!
The setup of the band is very simple. There is no flash or glitter, but a black and white scheme.
Except for the lead singer, the other band members (guitarist Neal MacLean, bassist Austin Farquhar, drummer
Thom Cooke and keyboardist Mike Goyette) appear as silouhettes. This effect allows the mind to focus more
on the instrument's sound and not the player identity.
The place, I guess a warehouse, also adds something. Each of the band members have
as little equipment as possible. This attention to space allows the different instruments to be played in harmony
and makes the sound that much richer. If I was there in the room with the band, I believe the music would fill up the
I have enjoyed watching the video and hope this review is appreciated.
