Boomkat Product Review:
Following an international success with the self-titled track cosmic sandwich (Mbf ltd 12002), englischer steve barnes produces the official answer in his new adoptive guise with "man in a box". Even more surreal, nervous and frenetic at all ends "Man in a box" furthers Barnes' determined take on the Metro Area sound. Once again the vocals come from Riley Reinhold. In "man in a box" the lyrics describe the claustrophobia between four walls, antagonism and fascination in one, a recurring situation. The flipside track "you too"is even more in the style of the first cosmic sandwich. Watch out for the full Cosmic Sandwich album, imminent for winter 2005 on My Best Friend.
