Lines have been drawn in the genre sands, and they have been crossed with a vengeance by Houston-based Superna. (Soo-PER-Nah, for you newbies) Their 2001 project, "REFLECT" (Solar Flare Records) is a perpetually pertinent sound, blending R&B feel and pure rock energy with signature guitar work and explosive vocals. Timing reminiscent of Rush and vocals as powerful as Annie Lennox are the brainchild of writing duo Nick Midulla and Melanie Brink. Lead vocals are accomplished by Brink, who, if accused of being an all-out, hold-nothing-back performer, would be quickly found guilty. Expertly orchestrated, flawlessly produced, and masterfully performed, this disc is a calling card of the band's capability, exceeded only by their live performances. Melanie Brink can be soft and sultry, but her forte is the brash edge of vocal expression with all the subtlety of a bull through the streets of Pamplona. You don't want to miss "Morning (remix)" as this 'other worldly' quintet invites technology into their realm for a sexy reprisal of Track 4. Don't eject the disc prematurely, as there is a killer hidden track that you must endure a few intense moments of silence to experience. It all starts with getting the disc, which you can do right now for only $11.49! But wait! You might as well pick up the brand new release, “THE ENDING” (Solar Flare Records) while you’re at it. The new CD is a fourteen (plus one) cut gem of not-surprisingly edgy tunes that push the envelope and then rip a big whole in it! Melanie Brink is better than ever and the writing of Brink plus Nick Midulla is even better on this album. The entendres are thick and frequent. The project leans toward being thematic but don’t you worry your pretty little head about that. Just know that this is kick-ass rock and roll from Planet Texas. Get the disc right now! It’s brand new and it’s only $13.99!
