Mixed Opinions

Mixed Opinions are a group of part-time maniacs that share one love... Procrastination.

When They don't hate themselves, they love to be creative and play simple tunes that make the people move.
They don't embellish the present music scene and they love the old school tunes from Led Zeppelin to RATM and embrace newer bands like Arctic Monkeys and The Hives, who inspire them too.
Simple Riffs give shape and a platform to lyrics that talk about a society that only wants to celebrate two things...gold and individualism.
