Their debut album Take A Ride consist of 12 songs that unearths the 60s' rock sound and brings it back to life with an interesting sequence. The album's tracks follow an order that takes the listener down a path from darkness into the light. 'Take a Ride' starts with "Dead Man Walking", a song that deals with depression. It's the starting point for a rhythmic, spiritual evolution that fast-forwards towards liberation in the 11th track, "Let Love Rule". Each song has its raison d'être and guides the audience towards the certainty that the only way to happiness is to let love rule their lives. The work was produced in English, the language they actually call "their rock n roll mother tongue".[1]
