Here We Go

I'm a snob.

I'm not proud of it, but it's true.
I have high expectations for things. I expect products and services to blow me away.
When I have a chance to review items, I hope for the best, but secretly plan for the worst.

So I was extremely pleasantly surprised when I got the new CD called Here We Go.
I'll be honest that I didn't expect it to be as great as it is.
It is SO CUTE!

The songs are all original, so you won't recognize them immediately. But they suck you right in and by the end, you're singing along. They're very much "kid songs" but parents will like them too. Think of a mix of Laurie Berkner, Beck, and The Flaming Lips. They're happy, peppy, silly, and upbeat, a bit heavy on the rock side. That's a good thing.

You could pop this CD in on a road trip and everyone in the car will be having a great time. I promise.

I definitely reccomend this for parents of toddlers through grade schoolers. My kids ages 2-8 all loved it.

You can pick up a copy or download it as an MP3 by clicking here.

Now I'm taking my high expectations (aka snobby self) to pop in Here We Go and clean house. It's great for motivation! LOVE it!

Will have to subdue my own snobby self and try it. Must admit - the cover would have made me "PASS"!

Love coming here and listening to your music, btw ;-).

I agree, I would've passed just by seeing the cover.

But the music is really good! I wouldn't lie to my readers. :)

rentz said...

Yep. The cover does nothing for me either.

I understand the snob thing. My guy is a marketer/writer/designer. He hates it when service is poor or a product doesn't live up to the talk.

Sounds like a great CD to keep your kids happy in the car. And even if you're a snob, that's a real bonus for keeping the peace!

Love it, thanks for the tip Beki!!

The concept of the CD and the songs seem really cute. When I went to listen to clips though I found the guys voice really droning. Not sure if I could listen to it all the time.

Yep yep I can relate. But you never know things might surprise your CD for instance. It's a wonderful surprise nonetheless.
