I have never heard anything from By Divine Right prior to this release. I am quite impressed by the band’s wide assortment of catchy tunes. I find D.V.R. to have a special and captivating sound. Jose Miguel initial formation of By Divine Right took place in 1991. The group released their self-titled debut album in 1995. In February 1999, “Bless this Mess” was released and the band toured with The Tragically Hip. Contreras plays a variety of styles on the guitar. There is a classic rock style on some songs, combined with some modern day lyrics. I also like the Motown feel of the song “Sweet Lovin” and find “Soul Explosion” and “Stella Heart Ocean” to be my two favorite songs. This CD was 14 months in the making and it seems well worth the wait.
