Editorial Reviews

The Blue Van a quartet hailing from Denmark, with a guitar driven sound very much in synch with their contemporaries (and touring partners) such as Jet, Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, The Pretenders and others. Their third album Man Up is being rush released to capitalize on the fact that a track from the album, There Goes My Love is featured as the backing track for the Apple iPad commercial. It will start in very intense rotation surrounding the April third debut of the highly anticipated iPad and as history has proven, this can provide a major springboard for the discovery of this track.

This album rocks! If you haven't followed TBV from their previous albums (1. The Art of Rolling and 2. Dear Independence), I would suggest getting those first! Pure classic rock and roll, 60's-70's era guitars meshed with excellent organ tracks and drumbeats that just make you want to dance to every song.

Man Up is The Blue Van's third album. In my opinion, this album lost a bit of their original classic rock roots, but they make up for it! Don't get me wrong, I'm not classifying this album as TBV selling out or going mainstream, because that's definitely not what they did here (just listen to I'm a Man!). What I am saying is that the whole music feel has been brought up a decade or three in sound, and TBV definitely make it work!

The opening track, Be Home Soon, is still my absolute favorite off this album, and quite possibly altogether! This CD will keep you banging your head to the excellent guitar work, driving drums, and incredible vocals.

These guys have real raw talent. If you like classic rock bands like The Who and Led Zeppelin, and modern bands like JET and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, then you will be much more than satisfied.

Great selection of songs. Great sound. Heard just a portion of a song in a TV commercial and listened to more online. They are a strong rock group. Love 'em.

I heard The Blue Van a few weeks ago on BETA Records Tv, and I must say, I've already become quite the fan. This cd rocks!

From the moment I heard the first track, Be Home Soon, I was hooked. I'm actually more of an indie folk/jazz kind of guy, but this blatantly blues-oriented, classic rock-style album has an indomitable energy about it that is totally infectious and doesn't ever leave it. The first half of the album is particularly great, but even the latter songs (which some may say get a little repetitive) keep the energy up and moving. Not to mention that the liner notes are engaging from a musician's standpoint, with chords and instrumentalist breakdowns (who played what). This is just a really fun band, and this album (their third) is definitely their most cohesive and engaging effort. Stand outs (for me) are Be Home Soon, Silly Boy, There Goes My Love, Lay Me Down and Die, and In Love With Myself.

Highly recommend this CD and any of their other cds. All of their songs are catchy and will put you in a good mood. They're by far my favorite band.
