S&M What are we waiting for Reviews!
Music Emsissions review of S&M’s CD “What are we waiting for”
on 2012-01-13 Michael_Morrison Said:

Most would agree most popular artists out there have something truly special to give to their fans. This goes above the typical attributes like raw talent, amazing songs, nice voice, or even a very marketable look, sound and image. There's something truly infectious at the core of these artists that simply makes us feel good when we listen to them. Whatever "it" is - they all seem to have "it".

Today I listened to the latest CD from South Dakota's own S&M (What are We Waiting For - 2011). Venturing to the internet and reading the bio I get the impression these guys are extremely passionate and experienced about the songwriting craft. From start to finish this CD from S&M is a very pleasurable and entertaining statement. It has a very up-front and personal Southern Rock approach to it and even dabbles in Rhythm and Blues. Any fans of any of these musical styles will enjoy this latest release from Ed Woodruff and company and is clearly marketed for those who like a male singer a mystique of say a John Cougar, Allman Brothers, Lynard Skynard and even Ray Charles. I get the impression Woodruff and company are just rolling with what they know as a band within all these songs. In other words they hit the mark remarkably well just being who they are. Favorite tracks include the title track, (I'm Stoned), (All Alone), (The Road to Heaven). All songs possess an amazing feel. The songwriting digs a bit deeper than the next artist. The band is spot on and just makes the whole CD more enjoyable. Kudos goes out to the fancy fretwork and amazing vocals from Ed Woodruff. Trust me when I say he is a marquee talent within this project. If he wrote all these songs he could be bigger than any us realize right now. The overall vibe of the production is very passionate and soulful in nature.

I see S&M as an unnoticed diamond in the rough. What do they got that Greg Allman don't got - Nothing. Every song is amazing, the musicianship is spot on and Ed Woodruff delivers the goods. I can't hear any noticeable weaknesses worth mentioning in fact this is one of the best CD Ive heard in a long while. I am eager to hear what his next release will sound like. In close most famous artists out there have "it" I'm not so sure what it but S&M Featuring Ed Woodruff has whatever "it" is.
