Review : Dallas - Over the Edge
Shake FireThough what makes this EP one of the better EP’s and why Dallas is a band that has made it that way, it’s their range they give in their songs. The devil might be rock & roll and they actually make the song sound that way, when the next track “I Close My Eyes” plays the tempo of the album changes completely.
