Editorial Reviews

Recalling Neil Young at his most fragile and plaintive, and Thurston Moore at his most resolved and vital, Chad's emotive vocals anchor these songs while tackling the pervasive themes of death and dreams with an unexpected air of certainty and hope that is far from ominous - instead, it's luminous. Through a complex interplay of guitar, drum beats, loops, samples, found sounds, unorthodox percussion, xylophones, distortion, synthesizers, accordions, and more, Chad has made an album that sounds bigger than one man.

I cannot begin to tell you how in love I am. Chad VanGaalen is an absolute brilliant song writter/musician! He gives me goose bumps everytime I hear him sing! I think he has bumped The Shins off the top of my top 5 list. You MUST buy this CD, and also watch his amazing self drawn music videos.

Album is growing on me. Is not Diaper Island, but I may like better than Infiniheart. Much like Skelliconnection it's a good album overall, but has some real gems that stand out, like Bones of Man and Old Man + The Sea.

I heard about Chad Vangaalen from a LIVE 105 radio DJ in San Francisco. She listed "Willow Tree" as her #1 song of 2008. I was intrigued by this decision so I checked him out - probably one of the best decisions of my life. I bought Soft Airplanes almost immediately after hearing Willow Tree for the first time. I'm a huge fan of banjo so it was love at first listen. I love his sound and mixture of electronic beats and sounds with guitar. Absolutely love it! I just caught him in concert as well. Beyond fabulous show - he's quite a terrible storyteller but I'll blame the alcohol for that. But you should really pick up this album. You can get all 3 of his CDs for next to nothing if you buy used.

I bought this because Pandora offered up TMNT Mask which rapidly grew on me. There are a number of other great tracks including Bones of Man which, to me, is reminiscent of Neil Young (a favorite of mine.) I recommend you preview all the tracks as much as you can to hear the wide variety on this record. Chad's work encompasses a number of styles and is quite surprisingly varied.

This is one of those albums that you can listen to over and over and never get tired of it. All the songs are really original, and the lyrics are really artistic and paint a really awesome picture in your head. They are also symbolic and you can analyze the underlying meaning of them, which is rare in most of today's music
