Possibly one of the best songs on the track.

The quality of lyrics and the memorable nature and tunefulness of the music make this great song sound even better after several listens.

Meet Teddy Geiger, the talented, model-cute 17 year old singer/songwriter whose debut album is a sure-fire bet to be a huge hit. Fans of James Blunt, Daniel Powter, Daniel Bedingfield and K T Tunstall will identify with this album, especially the fresh-sounding first single "For You I Will (Confidence)"

Second single "These Walls" is a ballad about facing up to life after having your heart broken.

"Cause everybody tries to put some love on the line

And everybody feels a broken heart sometimes

And even when I'm scared I have to try to fly

Sometimes I fall

But I've seen it done before

I got to step outside these walls"

Other good tracks are "Thinking Underage", "Look Where We Are Now" and "Seven Days Without You" (a version of the Avion single, and my favorite track), but there really isn't a bad song on this album.

Watch out for this husky voiced cutie-pie, he's another Geiger you can count on.

When I downloaded his single on [that music service whose name begins with an "i"], I liked the song and looked forward to the release of the album, thinking it was going to be pretty good. But I didn't expect it to be one of the best albums of 2006 thusfar! One can't help but be impressed by such a solid debut album from a guy still in his teens.

Several songs I fell in love with by the third listen of this album, specifically: "Air Dry", the upbeat "Possibilities", the mellow "Gentlemen", and the lead-off single "For You I Will (Confidence)". Geiger's voice contains the most pleasing elements of both Jonny Lang's raspy growl and Ryan Cabrera's breezy smoothness; and his songwriting and musical style bring to mind a cross between Tyler Hilton and John Mayer. If you like any or all of these artists, Teddy Geiger is right up your alley.

Simply put, this album is straight-ahead, radio-friendly pop-rock with a dash of rootsy funk. It doesn't break any new ground, but it doesn't have to in order to be good. "Underage Thinking" is very good, and if the corporate music machine allows Teddy Geiger to put out a second album (and maybe a third), I have a strong feeling that he's only going to get better.

Teddy Geiger's debut album "Underage Thinking" shows a maturity and depth that has not been seen for years in a performer so young. At 16 (now he is 17) Geiger either wrote or co-wrote 11 out 12 of the tracks on this album but also played Piano, Guitar, Bass and Drums these various songs. What makes it more amazing is that he is self-taught on all these instruments.

While the maturity of writing in his melodies is evident, his lyrics ring with an earnestness and a poetic quality which ranks with the best of today's music.

A sample from the first single "For You I Will (Confidence)":

For give me if I st..stutter
From all of the clutter
In my head.

Cuz I could fall asleep in those eyes
Like a water bed

Do I seem familiar,
I've crossed you in hallways
A thousand times,

No more camouflage
I want to be exposed,
And not be afraid to fall.

The quality of lyrics and the memorable nature and tunefulness of the music make this great song sound even better after several listens.

Other songs of note include:

"These Walls"
"Night Air"
"Thinking Underage"
"Look Where We Are Now"
"Air Dry"
"Trying Too Hard"
"A Million Years"

The last track on the disc, "Love Is A Marathon", strongly evokes Bob Dylan and could be the masterpiece of the entire allbum.

Will Teddy Geiger be the next Dylan, McCartney or Joel? Probably not, but there is no doubt in my mind that he has the potential to become an all-time great. Whether he lives up to that potential or not remains to be seen, but I for one, will be buying his next album. After that, I hope I will be purchasing Teddy Geiger albums for years to come.

This is hands down the best album of the year. I've been following Teddy's career for over a year, and I've been to 12 shows so far, watched him grow so much as a musician, and finally to see him put out this fabulous CD is awesome.

Don't listen to the people who say he's the next John Mayer. He's better than that. He's got way more talent, and he'll have ten times the success John Mayer had. His album debuted in the Billboard Magazine Top 10, which is more than most Top 40 artists can say. No matter where you come from, that's impressive.

He's got the whole package. He can play the guitar, piano, drums and bass, not to mention he wrote or co-wrote 11 of the 12 songs on his album. This kid's for real. His music is mature for his age - yet it's easy to relate to. He manages to capture not just one demographic, but he's gotten the attention of people everywhere.

Watch out for Teddy, cause this is just the beginning.

I was shocked with the just... awesomeness of Geiger. So rarely do I find an artist that has this much talent that I love. My favorite song on this CD is definately These Walls, but there are also other great songs as well!

1. These Walls- 9.8/10 This is one of my favorite songs ever. The words are beautiful and real and the tune is just right. It's an awesome love song.

2. For You I will- 8.5/10 Honest, genuine and very likeable.

3. Night Air- 8.5/10 First of all, I really liked the intro. A really good song. You get the sense that Geiger really put himself into this one. You get that soulful feeling.

4. Thinking underage- 7/10 I'm not sure about the tune but I love the words. So meaningful!

5. Look where we are now- 8/10 Another nice intro. Pretty good body.

6. Air Dry- 8.5/10 Very catchy. The kinda song you dance to while sitting down.

7. Seven days without you- 8/10 When I hear this song I can just immagine Geiger sitting with a guitar by a rainy window...

8. Try too hard- 7.5/10 A nice "sway" song

9. A million years- 8.5/10 Nice tune, flowy, easy to listen too.

10. Possibilities- 4.5/10 The only song on the CD I was truly disappointed with. I just couldn't feel the rhythem and it was just strange. The beat just wasn't right. It didn't click.

11. Gentlemen- 7/10 Not sure about this one. The lyrics are interesting and so is the tune. But I did like it.

12. Love is a marathon- 6/10 Okay, but boring.
