"4.0 Stars - Very Good"

"Listening to Michael Addison’s album, Resisting Fate, is like laying in the grass on a summer day and watching the clouds slide by while you think of childhood and ice cream and former lovers. And then, there is lightening. The guitar wails, the tempo accelerates and you are hooked."
"Alt rocker Addison shows us a deep, melodious side that merges euphoria, melancholy and electricity in a harmonious stream that sometimes floats you gently and sometimes carries you over emotional rapids. But in the end, when the music fades and leaves on the shore of your consciousness, your first inclination is to get back in the boat, hit replay on your iPod, and go for another sail. I had the opportunity to talk with Michael about his emotional rapids and the new album, Resisting Fate."
