Editorial Reviews

2011 debut full-length album from singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Pat Grossi AKA Active Child. You Are All I See, is indebted to the sounds of the 1980s, from New Order's drums-and-synths to danceable Hip-Hop beats, and it's all topped off with soaring R&B melodies. The album's first single, 'Playing House,' features guest vocals from Tom Krell, the crooner of lo-fi R&B project How To Dress Well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous,near-perfect album August 28, 2011
By D
Format:Audio CD
This seems to be a "thing" lately, a phase that indie music is going through: dark, dreamy, shimmery music with an '80s synth sound. All the kids are doing it. Thing is, none of them are doing it half as well as Active Child. With its sultry instrumentation and choir-boy vocals, it's like an electronic-gospel-rock-opera for the 22nd century - current and futuristic, while borrowing from the past. This album is incredible; I'm so glad I discovered it. (Another great Amazon recommendation - way to keep earning my dollars, Amazon!)

I do have to say that I have some favorites - See Thru Eyes, High Priestess, Ancient Eye - and love its ethereal moments better than the more straightforward pop/R&B influenced songs. But that said, the album works as a whole, and I like every song. Definitely one of my favorite recent albums, and in a time of very good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! January 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I grew up in the 80s, and I must admit this album startles my nostalgic appreciation for those sounds and styles. It exceeds that genre entirely however with a sophisticated and modern polish. The vocals/singing and synthy quality might be compared to a stripped-down M83 with a harp.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderfully different October 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard these guys on a podcast show and loved what they were doing - it's beautiful music!
If you're looking for something fresh, this is it. There is nothing boring, tired or bland about what Active Child is doing on this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made my list of "5 You May Have Missed, Version 2011" February 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD
No love from me for Neon Indian and James Blake is cool in my book, but the sheer dreaminess (as well as actual instrumentation) quotient gets upped by a factor of five in the hands of Pat Grossi aka Active Child. Babies could very well be made to You Are All I See and I wouldn't be a bit surprised. Seriously though, sexy time is in effect with this album of electronica/synth-washed pop, all warm and incandescent with every falsetto choirboy note out of Rossi's mouth and pluck of his harp. Yes, harp. Just when you feel as if things are all angelic and holier than not, "When Your Love Is Safe" and "Playing House," form intimate space and when he declares that he's "in your church tonight"...get a room. And feel free to worship there.

Excellent album, coming from a lifelong musician. Quality music. I like the mix of 80's-ish electronic sounds, and R&B style, and beautiful harp music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Active Child - You Are All I See October 23, 2013
By MrSpook
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I concur wholeheartedly with one of the previous reviews of this CD - ** Beautiful **!
Like a female version of Enya with a touch of Bon Iver (who I also like). The instrumentation and construction shows thought and effort to achieve a meaningful and unique sound. Looking forward to future Active Child Releases :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this album
I really enjoy Active Child's music. This album was, to me, incredible when I first heard it. A few times into it, I wished they had more variety in their music. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy Pop Out of the Mainstream
This is a great album without a weak song. Active Child has a strong, near falsetto voice. Allmusic mentions he was operatically trained and it allows him to sing powerfully. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good
I only rated it four because there are a few songs that I have not really been interested in listening too very much after the first time. Overall however it is a great album. Read more

Active Child is Pat Grossi, an L.A.-based songwriter who layers his keening, unearthly voice over diffuse waves of keyboards. Read more
