Comments from Fans


The line between psychedelic and classic rock is a fine line in the case of Zallen's "Expensive Date." The mood is flashing lights and lava lamps but the musicianship is classic rock with solid guitar that showcases Zallen's brilliance and vocals that fit the genre of the music better than anyone. Reminiscent of Bowie, Radiohead and XTC, Zallen is breaking the mold and re-creating rock.
-Radio Stonewall
A few that really stood out for me were the title track "I Live In A Box", "Expensive Date" (of course), "Long Weekend" and "No Clue". I actually brought it to a party last week and ended up playing the whole thing to a bunch of friends - good reaction too! Once more - keep rocking - I personally feel you kick it out and look forward to seeing more material from you.

Extremely catchy and engaging psychedelic alternative rock. You will hear diverse influences including Bowie, The Beatles, Radiohead, Todd Rundgren, XTC, Prince and Tears For Fears.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT THE BEATLES WOULD SOUND LIKE IN THE YEAR 2000? WELL CHECK THIS ONE OUT FROM ZALLEN, AS THEY COMBINE TECHNOLOGY WITH GOOD WRITING AND PRODUCTION SKILZZZ, THIS SONG IS FAMILIAR, YET VERY UNIQUE, RELAXING!

Do you like psychedelic music? Then you must check out Zallen's "I Live In A Box" a great album put together by this virtual one man band. This album has a truly unique feel about it almost Lennon-ish in fact. Check him out and see what I mean.

Rating: 9.5 - There's some interesting stuff here. Dynamic yet moves along with an intelligent significance. The hooks are there and good production. Cosmic rock with a touch of commercialism is what we hear.
GREAT ROCK Radio
I went to listen to your band and I was honestly FUCKING BLOWN AWAY! you are a supreme SONGWRITER. I think the best song BY FAR has to be "Expensive Date" I love that song...I stopped listening to it 5 min. ago but it's still ringing clear in my head! I think you guys should push that song on radio...it's got kind of a Perry Farrell vocal and the chord structure is very Beatlesesque. I love the lead guitar too, sounds very ethereal! You guys are a wicked band and I wish the best of luck to you...I know it's a bitch but don't give up...I have added you to "other artists we like" section of our page www.mp3.com/skyfishermen good luck and hopefully talk to you sometime! Take care.

Hello Zallen,
We love your music. What a unique groove. You've got really great writing, melodies and dynamics. Keep up the good work...
-Tony Anton

Hey there! I love your music! It's just so different and refreshing. I am adding you to The Lyric Justice Music Radio II Station. Please take a listen to my stuff! I think you may like it.
-Justice

You're song is one of my favorites on the station. It's so cool & kind of trippy. One-man band, that's very cool. Same with my solo stuff. Yours sounds like a very high quality recording. Did you go to a studio or do you just have a killer one in your house?
-Todd

I've enjoyed listening to your music this morning at work! Great vocal style/harmonies & good arrangements. Thanks for sharing your music!
-Steve

How you doing? I think your songs are great. Melody, imagine that. You can write them. I linked to your site (not that my site is exactly on fire) from mine. Best of luck to you. I run the dirthead crew at a ski area. If you are going to be at Tahoe for winter recreation in a few months let me know via e-mail when, I can hook you and your friends up at Mt. Rose with lift passes. Again, great job.
-Mitch Morgan

Ahhh.. a breathe of fresh air.. just listened to "Mars Express".. Mind if I hook you up on our "Drowning Noah Weather Radio" station?
Thanks!

HI MIKE, JUST LISTENED TO MARS EXPRESS, I LIKED IT OF COURSE BECAUSE I WAS A BEATLES FANATIC GROWING UP, IT PUTS ME IN THE MIND OF SERGEANT PEPPERS MEETS, STRAWBERRY FIELDS. I WILL SURELY ADD IT, AND I WILL LISTEN TO THE OTHER'S AS I GET SOME TIME. YOUR MUSIC IS VERY CREATIVE, WHICH I LIKED, AS WELL AS YOUR EXPERIMENTATION WITH SOUND, I LOVE DOING THAT KIND OF STUFF. LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING AROUND TOWN, I WILL COME OUT AND HEAR YOU, IF I CAN! KEEP WRITING!
-V.

Greetings from Crunchie Undies!
I am listening to your first song now. It is very engaging/interesting with an excellent hook/groove. Cheers
-Rob

Some great tunes. Zallen is a favorite of my band gehelio non-centric. Check out our site here on mp3.com.

Hey!
I clicked through your banner (the banner exchange) on my site. You are really good! The music is really well put together and very interesting. Keep it up. I've listened to almost everything on your page.

Hey Michael,
We'd like to include Mars Express in our next show. It's excellent and adds a distinctive balance to some of the other music on the show. Your song will definitely be a standout! Thanks for being a part of the dysfunctional Taylor family

love the tunes! Y'all rock! Glad I checked it out. I have a band too, an all girl band and we're from Canada. xoxo

Surfing and found your stuff. Nice tunes you have. I hope you keep climbing the charts... Best of success to you.
-TRENCH

Mike, I've been following your success, and have listened to some of your songs, which are awesome. Sure, I'm definitely up for exchanging links, if you want to. I'll add you to my favorite artists today. It would be fun to jam. Too bad about the geographical distance. Oh well, I'm just happy for mp3.com and the way it has allowed us musicians to get our music "out there" and to get to know each other. Good luck and continued success!
-Dan/Dyonisos

Hello! I listened to your music again, you are very gifted. I wish I hear your music on the radio other than the crap they play. Doesn't seem fair, huh? United Independent something station.
Keep up the wonderful music.
RJ

Hi! I've just been listening to your songs and its some of the best music I've heard on MP3.com! I maintain www.mp3.com/elementuk (check it out, PRIME British neo- psych!) and I'd love to swap links with you.
-Dan

Hey Mike,
Cool music, I'm a huge Beatles, Bowie and Paul Weller fan. I actually have a side project that is Mod influenced on mp3.com called Enquire. Your music sounds great, well polished! Your lyrics are really clever and cool. "I was brought upon this earth to frustrate you", that's a cool opening line! I'll add you to my station, Domino Effect ASAP. All the best!
-Jeff

Hi Michael, I saw your in AD in music connection for a drummer wanted and streamed some of your songs on MP3. I was very impressed to say the least, not only with the quality of the material (which was outstanding) but also with your mp3 site. It was very professional and informative. Anyway, I dig the material, I'm an outstanding drummer and would love to meet you and jam with you.
-Mark Morrow-

Mike,
I checked out your stuff and I like the melodies a lot. I am not that big into special effects, I'm a reverb/distortion man myself. But I think your songs are still real cool and creative. I also think you sound a bit like Ozzy Osborne when you sing.. Hope that isn't an insult to you, cause it's cool.. he he..
-Shawn

Just listening to your work now :) I am suitably impressed and would love to have you aboard at our site. I believe you would do well out of some exposure to our Australian audiences. And making your CD available for sale here would definitely increase your chances of adding to your income :) Cheers
-Kirk Meade
-Advantage Music Company

Mike, thanks for your comments and the listen... your stuff is hot, very well crafted, link added whilst I'm still listening ;) cheers,
-Ben

Great stuff, it has a Prince feel. He also drew from the Beatles and Bowie.
-Hete
