On its 2007 major-label debut, THE BURNING HOUR, Test Your Reflex offers up a solid set of expansive alternative rock that recalls 1980s-era U2 and that band's more melancholy contemporaries. The brooding, synth-laden "Black Hearts" and the playful "Thinking of You" are particularly indebted to the Cure, while the rumbling single "Pieces of the Sun" finds the Los Angeles-based act branching out into a more contemporary guitar-driven sound.
