Cleveland quintet Fuzion has crossover appeal written all over it, rocking just hard enough for active rock radio and sounding nonthreatening enough for adult-contemporary formats. It often sounds like a band hellbent on melding Coldplay with A Perfect Circle. The demo's three tracks feature basic rock structures topped with grand atmospherics in the form of piano and soaring vocals from singer Mike Callahan. The real gem is "Sunset Dawn," with a Zeppelinesque chord progression that develops into an engaging maritime chantey.
