Editorial Reviews

With three critically acclaimed albums behind him, Brett Dennen has been firmly established as a definitive voice in modern songwriting. He's been called a "folk-rock revelation" by the Washington Post and a Top 10 Artist to Watch by Rolling Stone. His songs have appeared in some of the most artfully soundtracked TV shows such as Scrubs, Grey's Anatomy, Parenthood, Brothers & Sisters, and House among others. Loverboy is his strongest and most sincere album to date. Its songs are a celebration of life that resonate and inspire; this is the album that will define Dennen's career.

Brett says it himself: "This album is about having fun and letting go." It's upbeat, but with enough smarts to not be overly sugary pop. It's not the "social commentary Brett", it's a melange of funky, poppy, funny, living-life Brett.

If you don't come with any pre-conceptions or expectations and just listen, you will tap your toes and bob your head. Isn't that what we all need sometimes?

Brett Dennen's music changes from album-to-album, because he changes from album-to-album. If you've seen him live more than once, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about; every time he comes around, he's digging on something new and singing in new pitches and rhythms.

Loverboy is dance rock. I'm loving it. I'm playing it in the office and can hear everyone tapping their toes.

I can't wait to see him in Boston this year, so I can dance with my girlfriend to his new music.

Brett, you're the man!

My first review, since this album compelled me to write about it.

Upon first listen, I didn't know what to make of this album. I have all of Brett's CDs after falling in love with Hope for the Hopeless. While, this album is very different than the rest, I absolutely love it, and can listen to it over. It's nearly perfect adult/alternative/pop/folk with a touch of ska/funk.

Surprise, Surprise - the closest to the "old" Brett. A bit introspective, yet still melodic and somewhat upbeat.

Dancing at a Funeral - not one of favorites, but a cute song with a cute message during a bad time

Comeback Kid - A catchy little ditty

Frozen in Slow Motion - the best slow song on the album.

Sydney - No matter how many times I listen to this song, I still love it.

Make You Fall in Love With Me - Instantly puts you in a good mood and makes you want to dance.

Must be Losing My Mind - Great funky beat and lyrics

Don't have time to go on. But if you're in the mood to party, smile, listen to upbeat fun music, this CD is the best... especially for summer It reminds me of a mix of Paul Simon, Matthew Sweet, No Doubt/Sublime, and others throughout.. all and all being Brett Dennen.

I picked this up because of the Sydney (I'll Come Running) tune. And while there are a few clunkers, if you like that tune, you'll like the rest. He's got an awesome way with lyrics and is able to string words together so they tell a very tuneful story. I picked up the vinyl version and it came the MP3 download card so I got one of the bonus tracks out there. The vinyl sounds crisp and clear. One of the best sounding pieces of wax I've heard all year.

Brilliant stuff. I mostly get my music for free but Brett Dennen was definitely worth buying. You should also buy the CD "so much more"
Also look up Mumford and Sons and The Shins. My Favorite Brett Dennen son is Ain't No Reason on his "So Much More" album.

I am a newcomer to the world of Brett Dennen. I love his music and can't wait to hear more. I'm very excited that he has a new album being released this fall. I am now a loyal Brett Dennen fan!

Brett Dennen's new set has some smashing gems. "Dancing at a Funeral" sounds like it might be a somber tune, but it pulses delightfully like many of Van Morrison's classic tracks, "Now's not the time to be so sad & mournful; We are going to a funeral and we'll be dancing he night away; Don't be so shy, we are living and we are dying, we are laughing and we're crying every single day." "Sydney (I'll Come Running)" is an upbeat track about a buddy in trouble that sounds like a soundtrack to a cop show, "I will testify." One of my very favorites is "Only Rain" with a slower tempo that allows Dennen's voice to wrap around the gorgeous melody and the breakup lyric, "Don't hold back your tears from falling; Don't pretend they're for me, darling; You can tell me I'm not the one; I know the sun is shining somewhere on someone." "Must Be Losing My Mind" strikes a funky beat with plucked strings keeping the sound bouncing like a joyful sprite. "Little Cosmic Girl" bounces joyfully, "Are we an accident in time or part of a grand design? Press your body close to mine." Dennen's disc is a strong pop set stretched by its contrasts and lyrical complexity. Enjoy!

Format: MP3 Music
I have been a Brett Dennen fan for several years now and he just keeps going above the bar of great music. Reading some of these reviews is actually disheartening due to the idea that one has to stay the same to be any good. These 13 new songs are just as good as they are different from his last cd. I agree Hope had some really thought filled songs that "made a statement" but this new cd is just fun and dare I say cool? It shows that he is not only aware but he also has a life. The entire collection stands on it's own, but some great tracks are Sydney, Make You Fall in Love with Me, Can't Stop Thinking about You, and Queen of the Westside. I applaud Brett Dennen for being different and for taking risks. As for a couple of the less positive posts...I wonder if any of your art were placed under such a harsh microscope if it would merit even a second glance.

Cheers to BD!
