Combine the Victorious
Combine the Victorious released one of the better locally made CDs on the past two years, being at once epic-scaled in a '70s vein and forward-thinking. The success of that album on iTunes has prompted the band to make this EP available only in the digital format. Disagreements might be an accidentally insightful title in that the record seems to be pulling in two different directions where the conventionally melodic butts heads with the darker, more provocative. As such, Disagreements isn't so much a progression as a sidestep. B - T.H.
