Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Big City Rock may have just given us the perfect pop record of the year. Although the 10-song album clocks in at just 35 minutes, not one second of that time is wasted. The Los Angeles quintet moves seamlessly between a night in Clubland ("All Of The Above") to a naked heart conversation ("I Believe In You") to a fun romp that takes you back to the height of 60’s soul ("Kind"). Along the way there's a dash of slacker humor ("Sink"), a moving call for peace ("Shelter") and an unapologetic love song ("A Better Place"). If listeners at times think of latter-day U2, it's probably no surprise as Big City Rock shares a knack for creating almighty pop songs absent of unnecessary ornamentation and full of a wide range of genuine emotions. A true contender for the American pop crown.––Jedd Beaudoin

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Delighted July 21, 2006
By MT Fan
Format:Audio CD
It seems to be that I find my favorite artists when I see them open for other artists that I love. Big City Rock would be one of these bands that are at the top. I wasn't prepared to be awed by this wonderful group when I saw them open for Jason Mraz, but I was. The songs were catchy and I just wanted to dance. Especially for "All of the Above" when I surprisingly knew some of the words. I looked to my sister and my friend and they did as well. My personal favorite song would be "Human" which is very catchy and WONDERFUL to sing along with. Believe me, if you like music, you'll probably love Big City Rock. I know I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...because they are and they do July 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
If the only song that you've heard on this album is "All of the Above," please don't buy it, because I promise that you'll be disappointed; there is not another hi-hat-dance-beat-doesn't-make-sense song on this album. Listen to any other song on this album and you'll hear it... Big City Rock can do anything. Every song is so different from the song before it; I think that's what makes this album so impressive. There's the obligatory radio hi-hat song, and an empowering song, and a song you can clap your hands to... just give them a listen; I know you'll love at least one. And uhh, don't forget to tell your friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing amazing amazing July 25, 2006
By lilymo
Format:Audio CD
Normally when I buy a new CD I listen to the entire thing, decide which songs I like, and listen to those on repeat. With this CD I listen to the ENTIRE THING on repeat. There are not any songs on here that I don't enjoy listening to. Every song makes you wanna bop around and get up and dance. Big City Rock are an amazing set of talented fellas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now this is rock! May 22, 2006
By Kemaria
Format:Audio CD
For those who appreciate musical depth and talent and are tired of the lip-synching puppets that hog the airwaves, Big City Rock won't disappoint. This album features ten fresh, well-crafted, and well-played songs with catchy lyrics and harmonies. Lead singer Nate Bott delivers each song spectacularly well, with wonderful timbre and vibrato. (Another indication of his talent - he needs no studio magic to help him out since he sings just as well and in tune in the live performances I have heard.) All of the other band members - Andy Barr on guitar/vocals, Tim Resudek on bass, Frank Staniszewski on keyboards/vocals, and Kaumyar on drums - are equally talented in terms of musicianship and technical skills, giving Big City Rock polished songs and a solid sense of ensemble that is especially evident in live performances. With clean lyrics, the band's strong musical and technical background, classic sound, and creative musicianship, Big City Rock has delivered a wonderful album that you'll want to hear over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anything BUT amateurs! May 19, 2006
By Martha
Format:Audio CD
This may be their debut album, but the boys of Big City Rock

prove with this self titled release that they are anything

BUT amateurs! From start to finish the album is a mixture of

fresh new sounds and old school rock! Their words are deep and creative and their music is fun and innovative! They take you on an energetic journey and then wisk you away to a calm state of

mind over and over again, as the tracks shift from fast paced

party songs like "All Of the Above" (the first single off the

album) to mellow and slower love songs like "Better Place"

(track number 7). From the sound of this album it seems as

though we'll be seeing a lot more of Big City Rock. This band

has crafted songs overflowing with beats that will keep you moving and full of lyrics that will grab not just

young teenage girls by the heart, but the more mature adult

audience as well!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Drving through the city, stereo is on... June 23, 2006
By Dianne
Format:Audio CD
What an amazing debut album for this band! Big City Rock's music is like a blend of 70s piano rock and 80s dance music. I love it! This music is great to listen to while driving, especially with the windows down. All of the songs have great lyrics, which the members of Big City Rock write themselves, and very upbeat tempos. Everytime I listen to this cd, I can't help but to dance. I think the album is best described as a "get up and move" album. Buy it now!

All of the Above...?
I love Stephen Thomas Erlewine, but he's off his rocker in this case. These guys are substandard bandwagoners, as far as I can tell. Nothing to see here, move along to something better, like Hard-Fi, The Cloud Room, or The Sounds, if we're staying in the same genre.
