Editorial Reviews

Highly-anticipated debut album from the April Smith and the Great Picture Show. Includes the single 'Colors' Touted by Perez Hilton as "the kind of tune you'd hear on an episode of Grey's Anatomy or in the next iPod commercial. It's sweet (which we love), quirky (which we love) and hooky (which we love).". Also includes "Terrible Things" featured on Showtime's hit series "Californication." RollingStone.com says "It's possible you haven't heard much about April Smith but all that is about to change. This Brooklyn singer-songwriter combines country and swing, making crackling songs that wink and smile and sway. She's got a rich, plummy voice, and she lays it on thick over a taut guitar strum, making for music as long on charm as it is on melody". Features 11 tracks.

To simply put it, if you listen to the sample of this album, and like it, then buy it.
A. Stern
The music is excellent, the lyrics are fun, the songs are varied, and April's Smith's voice is amazing.

I heard this group perform "Wow and Flutter" on 'A Prairie Home Companion' (they won the band competition) and decided I had to find more of their music. THANK YOU, AMAZON.
I downloaded this album and I've enjoyed every track.
This young lady has an unbelievably powerful voice with a great vocal range. She's also a very accomplished guitarist.
She and the rest of the band just fit together, and the eclectic selection of songs shows their abilities.
I think they'll go far.

To simply put it, if you listen to the sample of this album, and like it, then buy it. You get exactly what you hear, and not only are the songs catchy in their musical aspects, but the lyrics are too. Considering that this album was paid for by donations from fans, and I am a new fan, I feel bad that I missed out on the opportunity to help this great piece of music start. 5 stars, and I'll donate for the next one if need be.

This is the best album I have heard in ages . Not only are the vocals great,but the band takes the whole album to a new level . The lyrics paint pictures in your head and you can't stop singing and tapping your toes. The ballads on this album are so beautiful and really show off the range that this singer has This is a must have album for any one who is sick of listening to the top 20 every day. Buy It now. You won't be sorry!

As a very musical person who has been listening to a wide range of musical styles for a large number of years, I rarely feel in awe of new musicians, songs, performances, or productions. To be sure, there are and have always been many, many impressive artists, poets, composers, singers, lyricists, and songwriters around. The music world has never had a shortage of talented and accomplished contributors, and all of us have been the beneficiaries of all sorts of greatness, beauty, and splendor that musicians have brought into our lives - be it a short little sonata, a grand and expansive symphony, touching operatic passages, energetic rock and roll, deep blues, or any number of other genres that enrich our life experiences every day.

Regrettably, in our never-ending pursuit of new musical gems, we also stumble on far too many mediocre or downright dismal offerings from individuals that I can (kindly) consider sorry excuses for artists. It's far more common to have letdowns and disappointments than the exhilaration of discovering something truly worthwhile. The latter happens rarely, but it does happen once in a while.

Discovering April Smith's Songs for a Sinking Ship has been one of the rarest of those delightful occasions. This album is, in a word, great. Every single song is a gem. Although some are not as strong as others, the lyrics are insightful, original, and memorable. The instrumentation is clean and balanced - not overly skewed in any one direction, just right. The pace and tempo is perfect for each song. Slower ones are paced perfectly. They are not long and laborious. The faster songs are all catchy, perfectly rhythmic, and beautifully balanced. The performances are all top-notch.

I didn't realize that the reviews for the CD and for the download are kept separate. This is a review that I wrote last week for the physical CD of this album:

All the songs on this CD are very good. The lyrics are great- very catchy and interesting. I guess the musical style is similar to Little Voice by Sara Bareilles.

I first heard one track from this CD ("Colors") on a sampler from Paste Magazine. I knew just from that track that I would love the rest of the album. I bought the MP3 album because I didn't want to wait for a disc. The music is somewhat retro, with echoes of vaudeville, but so fresh and catchy. This album has been played non-stop as my driving music for the last few months; I've recommended the band to everyone I know. You won't be disappointed.
