Product Description

About the Artist

With Meltdown, Justin Roberts takes his rightful place among the triumvirate of truly exceptional current kids' artists. While he is hanging around high-fiving fellow greats Dan Zanes and Ralph Covert, though, do yourself a favor and dig into this disc: if "My Brother Did It" doesn't win you and your 6-year-old over with its right-on depiction of the classic sibling rat-out, the m-m-m-melody of the rockin' title track will. That's always been the deal with Justin Roberts' CDs--push aside the lyrics, and the all-out party of his playing and singing snares you till the final track. Block out the skillful musicianship, on the other hand, and you're still left with some of the most inspired and intelligent kids' lyrics ever. Case in point: "Get Me Some Glasses." Of the third-grade meanies who would cast our 8 year-old-at-heart singer a four eyes, he offers this useful observation: "They don't understand that there wouldn't be a Superman/Without Clark Kent/To an extent." Basic, bright, and deceptively brainy--they're the Justin Roberts hallmarks. Meltdown cooks them into something way more than palatable; 4- to 9-year-olds and their music-savvy parents will want to heap this onto their plates. --Tammy La Gorce

There is a phenomenon known as the "Pod Person" review. This is when an adult is so impressed with a movie, book or CD that is ostensibly intended for children that they start trying to sell other ADULTS on it as well.

For example, when the movie TOY STORY came out, every adult I knew would ask if I had seen it. "Oh, you HAVE to," the Pod Person would exclaim, "it's not just for kids!" As you can imagine, this is mildly annoying.

I swore never to be a Pod Person, and if it wasn't for Justin Roberts, I would keep that promise. But after listening to this bright, breezy, funny, infinitely catchy and wonderfully crafted album, I want to encourage every adult I know to give it a spin. MELTDOWN is just darned good pop music. It'll have you and the kids singing along and laughing.

I highly recommend this CD! It is a true example of music that BOTH kids and adults can love. Justin Roberts has a real instinct for children's concerns (e.g. "maybe the monster's afraid of me") but the music is so fun, funny and rockin' that I enjoy listening to it again and again. It's a relief to get away from Old MacDonald!

Justin Roberts has a very keen sense about how kids think, and is able to translate that knowledge into catchy pop music for children that won't make you want to gouge your ears out.

In fact, it made me want to listen to all his other CDs right away. If he knows that when I say "just a minute, it means more than just a minute", what other little secrets of parents or kids might he be onto?! I might get some tips on the preschooler psyche from him! But even if I don't, I'm sure to have a rockin' good time with my kids.

My kids and I (3 and 4)absolutely love his music. I know all the words to all the albums by heart. My son rides the school bus and currently loves "Yellow Bus" from same titled album. I would love to take the kids to see Justin perform. All his songs from upbeat to mellow are just great. I even listen to the songs without the kids in the car.

Use your best speakers, turn it loud, and find some children! Sure, they'll love it, but ultimately they simply offer a great excuse to listen incessantly to Justin's tightly crafted, complex, funny, 'i'm digging life (whether these are my kids or not)' jams.

While I don't want to interrupt a single song cuz it annoys the kids (my interrupting - not the song), I also want to hit pause a lot and ask 'wow, did you HEAR that?'. Each time I listen, I catch another little riff, ingenious little background something or other, twist in a lyric's meaning, or rythmic eyepopper. These nuggets don't quit, and each song is so full that I actually find them all too short. Maybe my attention span actually has increased since age 2.

And I'm not sure if it's cuz I have young children now or what, but I find myself very affected by each song. This album has already offered me individually as well as my family lots to have a great time about. Sorry, a little heavy there. In a word: TIGHT!

You could forget the kid story lyrics but then you would be missing out on some of his sly references put there for parents. The music is just great Music. My kids love this album! And all of Justin's albums... but they had to wait to hear it until after I was ready to let them listen to it- I was too busy listening to it on the way to work and on the way back!

Best songs:

My Brother Did it

Maybe the Monster

Taking off my training wheels

and More than just a Minute which sounds a lot like Graceland-era Paul Simon, has great lyrics and comes in at just more than a minute.

I bought this album and within a day had bought all the rest! then I started recommending it to my friends who like good music- even if they didn't have kids. And they all love it!

On top of that I took my family to see him while we were in Chicago- and he is a great guy! He even dedicated a song for our sons.

Buy it now you won't regret it all!!

Not only does our 18 month old daughter love this CD (and artist), so does our 9 year old nephew and both my husband and I. This is some of most infectious music I've heard in years, and I can't recommend it enough.

We originally received this cd, along with another Justin Roberts CD and a Barenaked Ladies kids cd, as gifts for our son when he turned 1. We liked them all very very much (our son is now 20 months and has long since learned to ask for all the songs he wants to hear by name).
This order was for a gift for twins turning two. We picked this one for the birthday song. There are so many great kids cds- but you really can't go wrong with Justin Roberts. The songs are fun for kids of many ages (older kids will understand the song meanings/humor along with enjoying the music) and adults alike.
Highly recommended!
