“Excerpt from - Review for: The Colors Inside Don't let anyone tell you there's nothing happening musically in Ohio, just because there aren't too many area artists making googobs of money for guys in suits in L.A. and New York. Collideascope is an Akron quartet that's been around for a few years and records for an Akron label called Mind the Gap Records. The band counts Cheap Trick and XTC as influences and the best songs on its all-original 11-track CD, such as Catch 22, the unrequited love tune Hero and the album closer Reckless Radio, contain the taut, constructed arrangements and plenty of friendly background and harmony vocals of the band's influences. I've never seen it live, but in the studio the band's playing is energetic . . . , so if you want to check Collideascope out under the stage lights, you can catch it playing at various clubs and festivals in the area. ....
