This is a great album, and a real surprise. The Blue Mockingbirds have created an ecclectic "alternative" album that evokes the classic British art/pop of the Beatles and at the same time bops along to up-to-the minute, funky grooves.
In addition to the funky grooves, catchy tunes and lush harmonies, the Blue Mockingbirds show off some truly virtuoso guitar playing; throughout the tracks, 1st lead guitarist Ted Mason adds Spanish Flamenco ("Please You! Tease Me!), Jimi Hendrix wails AND Bebop jazz lines ("Seeing is Believing," "Good Nite Delight," "Every minute"), and a brilliant classical guitar coda (" A Winter's Sun"); Monty Mason, the band's second lead/rythmn guitarist adds his own fleet fingered solos, often as a response to Ted's.
Stand out tunes? Too many to note. Still, the updated Beatleisms shine on in , "She Will," and "Now Forever Yours" The blistering "My Life," "Good Life," and "Goodnite Delight" underscore some tough social critiques.
The album turns enigmatic, even haunting, on such quirky songs as "Every Minute," and "Dream Town." But The Blue Mockingbirds also have a dafy sense of humor,too: "Johnny Sleeps Sweetly" is a wistful, sophisticated song that also inspires smiles with its daffy, whimsical middle break.
Even after the moody, elegiac "A Winter's Sun (Un Soleil d'un Hiver"), a song featuring a lush string arrangement and Ted's virtuoso solo classical guitar coda, The Blue Mockingbirds can't resist closing the album without getting a laugh. The rocking, "Goodnite Delight," steams along on phat groove and a wailing lead guitar, taking a middle break to feature dueling loopy loops and daffy word play.
Yep. All that, and a good deal more. The Blue Mockingbirds!! It's about time!

This is one of those albums that can shock you and relax you all at once. Whenever I listen to "Now Forever Yours" I feel like I'm floating, and whenever I listen to "My Life" I feel like I'm in a car about to hit a wall... I don't get all the bad reviews; this is a great great album!

I've seen these guys play around New York for the last few years and it is good to see them finally get a record out. Their songs are infectious, often rocking, and never boring. They have a sound that is all their own, yet seems powerfully familliar at the same time. As for the bad reviews, if you want whiny teen-angst garage band rock, look elsewhere. These guys radiate nothing but positive energy and good times, and that scares ... people!

A friend of mine, a Blue Mockingbirds fanatic, got me this album for christmas. Now I know why she is such a fan. The album is full of smart songs that are for the most part very catchy and very well performed. Some of the songs are really gorgeous, and the lyrics are generally interesting, although a few stand out as poems all by themselves. The best songs are "My Life," "Now Forever Yours" and "Goodnite Delight." Lyrically, "She Will," "Dream Town," "Johnny Sleeps Sweetly" and "Everyminute" are the most puzzling. These songs seem deceptively bright, but the lyrics come across as much darker, or maybe sadder is a better word, after a couple of listens. The Blue Mockingbirds' "In Colours" is definitely one of the smartest pop albums this year. I bought a couple of extra copies for my other friends because I want to spread the word.

I read some of the reviews and can't believe some of the negativity and spite. I saw a few of the pop collision concerts in New York City and they were really great. Ted the front man brings great bands together such as Jesus Jones, Midge Ure, Mercyside to name a few. Including his own band, I saw their show Muzz Skillings from Living Colour played the bass and they rocked the house. In light of the way the music scene is these days Ted Mason and MI5 are taking a fresh approach looking to the future and not the need to linger in the past. The record is really cool and I say buy it and turn it up and tune in and turn on.

In Colours, the freshman effort by Blue Mockingbirds, comes across as nothing less than a much-needed dose of thoughtful and well-crafted brit-pop in this age of boy bands and Brittany. For those who might not know, Ted Mason cut his musical teeth with Modern English and continued his career as a producer/engineer for various others in the post-punk and alternative genre. The other members, Monty Mason, Milan Mesarich, et al perform well as a group and possess the necessary "chops" to play music like this which requires knowledge of more than two chords.
These latest efforts stand in evidence of a man who has matured considerably beyond "I Melt with You." While that song reflected the typical naivete and idealism of youth including the misguided belief that-with love-we can change tide and time, these suggest someone who has learned that love is not necessarily a panacea for the world's problems or, for that matter, our own foibles. That said, however, don't fall under the mistaken impression that these songs are all doom and gloom-far from it. Tracks like "A Thousand Words", "Seeing Is Believing" and "Goodnite Delight" still manage to communicate the angst and electricity of sexual attraction just with the understanding that we must see the world-including those who would compete for our affections-in all its flawed humanity and love in spite of that-not because of it. What emerges, though, is a love and life that's all the stronger.
It's been said, youth is wasted on the young. This album proves it.

Highly recommended.
