I'm sort of a music snob and rarely does a new band grab my attention and space on my hard drive. But this band rocks. I was introduced to Atomic Tom by their ludicrously fun LIVE performance on the NY subway using only iPhones (for crying out loud). That performance was amazing - so much so it made want to learn more and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I couldn't stop listening to them for days after purchasing this album.

Each track is unique with layers of lush keyboards, perfectly selected guitar licks and effects, not to mention catchy melodies. The album showing the vocal range of their lead singer Luke White and the skills of guitarist Eric Espiritu.

Favorite songs so far (other than their headline song "Take Me Out") are "The Moment" and "Red Light Warning Sign" and "Play that Dirty Girl".

Watching their funny videos on YouTube gives you the sense they don't take themselves too seriously. Watch this band, you'll see them rise quickly.

I also saw the subway video and really liked the song. I bought the album and all the songs are as good or nearly as good as "Take Me Out" so don't miss out by just buying that one song. I'm not a professional music reviewer but to me they're like Psychadelic Furs + the Smashing Pumpkins for the most part. The former's overall style and latters synth. When the lead singer's voice hits crescendo it starts sounding more like Incubus or Three Doors Down. I love how the entire band's vocals get into songs. That's original to me.

The 1980's new wave/modern rock genre (Cure, Smiths, New Order, etc.) is one of my favorites and there seems to be a new generation of bands, including Atomic Tom, that have picked up where the old guard left off. This album is well-crafted from top to bottom. You can hear shades of classic 80's songs on several tracks but it's not shameless copies or even simply derivative music. It's advancing an art form, or at least a style, the way it should be.

My husband started talking about New York band Atomic Tom late in October. He showed me the video of them playing their single, "Take Me Out" on a Subway, using iPhone instrument apps. I was intrigued. Then the digital version of their debut album The Moment was released, and we grabbed it immediately. We were hooked from the first listen. Often we'll find that we like 2-3 songs on an album and be sort of ambivalent about the rest, but honestly, we liked every song on the album.

One of the first things you'll notice is Luke White's lead vocals. Very reminiscent of Brit Alt Rock of the late 80's and early 90's, he has a great range both in the actual vocal range as well in the types of music he sings. I was also impressed with Eric Espiritu's lead guitar and solo work as well as Philip Galitzine's driving bass lines and Tobias Smith's energetic chops on the drum kit. You'll definitely hear some influences here and there on the album (like Tears for Fears, The Killers, Kings of Leon, etc.) but their song writing is solid, and their musicianship as a band is tight, and I think they'll really make a mark for themselves in the industry.

The album starts off strong with what I think will quickly become a hit, "Let Let Go Tonight" which features driving rhythms and guitars with just the right amount of synth thrown in for that early 90's Brit Alt Rock sound. Then they switch gears, both thematically and musically for the title track "The Moment" which is where you begin to see the more serious side of their songwriting and Luke's vocals. The next track is the one most people will be familiar with - "Take Me Out" - which is the song that kind of put them on the map after the subway video went viral.

I love it when a group of talented musicians come together and make music. That's what Atomic Tom is and it's so much fun to see them live. If you haven't had that chance yet, their album is the next best thing to hearing them live. That's a mark of a good band for me. When their live performance actually rivals their studio recordings.

The songs range from fun and energetic to somber, but always catchy and always good. By now you've probably seen their subway iPhone video so you're already hooked to "Take Me Out", but give all the rest of the tracks a listen and you'll find that they are all just as enjoyable and some maybe even more so. Some of my favorite track are actually some of the slower songs such as "Play That Dirty Girl" and "Maybe I'm Wrong." My favorite track is probably the last track "This Is How We Like To End" which starts out somber, but picks up some nice energy midway through. It's a beautiful end to a great album and really showcases Luke's (the lead singer), incredible voice. And they really do sound that good live. Every single one of them is talented and they are the real thing and that's what I love supporting. They also do a cover of "Don't You Want Me" that is a blast live and also available for download.

These guys deserve their success and I hope big things happen for them, because I can't wait to hear what they do next.
