One eskimO!!!!!!! Review!
I am a member of the One2One Network and recently I was asked to review a CD from the band One eskimO! Before I give you my opinion I want to share a little info about the band One eskimO and their new hit song! They currently have the #1 adult alternative song called 'Kandi' which you may have already heard since it's the most played song on all adult rock radio 4 weeks and counting. One eskimO is a critically-acclaimed English band fronted by singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou and includes musicians Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass, horns) and Adam Falkner (drums).

Billboard Magazine calls One eskimO's self-titled debut album "...catchy, ambient pop." and Los Angeles Times Magazine hails the song "Kandi" “a beautiful, aspirational track.” The album is available in stores now.
Now for MY OPINION!!!
I really liked the music from One eskimO. It's very different from my normal choice of music, but I noticed as I listened to the music I felt a sense on calm come over me. It's a very laid back CD! I could definitely see this music being on an episode of Grey's Anatomy! Actually I first played the CD with my children and we danced around the room swaying back and forth! I know kinda nerdy, but hey I'm a momma first and it was great exercise! Ok back to the music...The songs were very unique and interesting! You can tell the musicians had a great sense of musicality! I love the tone of the lead singers (Kristian Leontiou) voice! This band strikes me as very authentic and real. Over all I am impressed, and very thankful to be apart of this review. I can say as a family we really enjoyed the music!
I am a member of the One2One Network and exchange for this review I received a One eskimO CD to review. No monotary gain was made from this review. All opinions are 100% authentic and real!
