Album Review

Big, bruising hooks lacerate the up-tempo tunes and massage the ballads on this exceptional sophomore release. Boone's lyrics speak directly to listeners on matters as personal as loneliness and anger at being misunderstood, yet by never lapsing into the kind of literalism that can trivialize the message, and by setting expressions of self-doubt to lighter-waving, hard-hitting choruses. In songs like "Wide Awake," he creates an impression that even the most intimate problems can be overcome. Assertive textures and Marc Slutsky's aggressive drumming meld with tightly written, compact musical structures; the result is a marriage of studio polish with raw live feel, and in that sense an ideal hard rock-pop hybrid. ~ Robert L. Doerschuk, Rovi

Where are all the reviews???

Okay, this is Splender's second album, and it picks up where 'Halfway Down the Sky' left off. So if you liked the first album, there's no question that 'To Whom It May Concern' is worth getting. It's more of the same without being TOO similar. This is 90's-era rock-pop at its best and most polished, without losing its raw expression. Passion and poetry that have been slapped in the face. Sensitivity walking across tacks. This band deserved way more than it got, so hopefully this was not truly their swan song and the longstanding rumors of their reuniting will prove true in the end. Get this album... and then write a review!!

Splender is Splendid!!!

Wow! Holy crap! What an amazing album! To Whom It May Concern (2002) is only ten songs long but not one of them is a dud...definitely a great follow-up to their debut. Their music is definately about quality. Every song grows on you with each listen. I am a relatively recent fan of Splender and I must say that this is definitely my kind of music. I wish I had discovered them when they came out, but I was never made aware of their existence. I can't believe more people don't know about them either. Everyone I have asked has never heard of them. I wonder why they weren't bigger when they came's great rock music with all the catchy guitar hooks and excellent extended vocal choruses you could ask for and it never seems to get old. This is music made right and the way all great rock music should be and is definitely better than some the crap they play on the radio nowadays. This band definitely has great talent and I wish they'd come back. My faves on this album have to be "Save It for Later", "But, Anyway", "The Loneliest Person I Know", "High", "Happier This Way" "Wide Awake" and "Good Evening". I would definitely recommend this album to any fan of 90's rock or alternative music and also check out their debut album as well. Definately don't save it for later you see, you're life will be greater you see!


Such a great band. The production of this is cd is so much better than their debut and these guys can put together a song like no one else. Waymon is an absolute master. Supposedly they have another CD coming out this year (The Human Condition)
