Imagine creating music, music that you have put months of work, years of learning into, to have it taken from you before it ever had the chance to reach an audience. This CD was five long years in the making. I don't want to re-hash the band's label troubles, you can read that in any other review of this record. I want to tell you, no, I want to testify to you the brilliance of Sense Field.

They have always defied catagorization. And this new CD "Tonight and Forever" is quite simply, amazing. The addition of keyboards and strings, with the already integrated acoustic guitars ('save yourself'), give the music an added feel of maturity, maturing beyond their hardcore past. Don't get me wrong; they can still throw down. 'Fun Never Ends' and 'Love Song' rock just as hard as anything else in their catalog. The vocals, very positive, real world/love song variety, soar above the fury of guitars and some of the most inventive drumming on a indie record in years.

The only downside to the recording is the over use of a 'looped' drum track to begin a couple songs and some other slight studio tricks that, if left out, would give the tracks less of an over-produced feel.

Twelve songs that I had been waiting for six years to hear. It was well worth the wait.

Actually, they were hardcore, but at the time, they were called reason to believe. Listen to the album, "when reason sleeps, demons dance" It was the same lineup, just hardcore music.

This album is terrific, it drew me into sense field immensely. Since then, they have become one of my top 5 favorite bands of all time. Its very sad that they broke up.

I like the cover too..simple, but cool.

This album is cool...But they never were hardcore, just on a predominatley (did i spell that right?) hardcore label...but I have to say "killed for less" is the best one they did.

i've only heard one or two songs by Sense Field, but they were damn good. one was on a Revelation sampler a while back, and I think it was the first track. My memory is worth poop-poo. Good review, I think I'll search them out.-fathead
