Editorial Reviews

You Are My Sunshine is Florida-based Indie Rock band Copeland's fourth full length 2008 album and the album debuts Copeland on their new record label, Tooth and Nail. The single, "The Grey Man" was released on Copeland's Myspace page on September 16th, 2008. The American Pop standard 'You Are My Sunshine' is synonymous with idyllic memories of youth and other feelings of merriment, but Copeland, who has soul-searching tracks like 'Control Freak' and 'Pin Your Wings', spin their own metaphorical thesis on the classic tune.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sonic Masterpiece... October 14, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...and a lyrical one, too. Vocalist Aaron Marsh, a creative genius, has outdone himself with 'You Are My Sunshine', the latest offering from alt/indie/emo band Copeland.

This is also perhaps the best production, recording, and engineering job on a record I have ever heard. You need a set of high quality stereo headphones to fully appreciate how good it is.

This could easily do double-duty as a relaxation CD, with each song flowing seamlessly into the next. If you need to mellow out, put those headphones on and let yourself soak in the lush, peaceful atmosphere it creates. Many of the songs are centered around an electric piano of some sort, but almost every sound and instrument imaginable are used, from traditional guitars and fat-sounding drumkits, to real and electronic strings, horns, clarinets, flutes, synthesizers and drum machines...topped off by Aaron's amazing ethereal vocals...the vocal doubling and harmonies are so tight they sound electronically generated or altered (and may be).

Although this is not a work filled with catchy, upbeat pop songs, the album starts out strong with 'Should You Return', a well-crafted melodic tune with what sounds like a dozen voices singing in unison...it sets the stage well for what's to come, and nothing here disappoints. In fact, every song has a beautiful melody...and incredible lyrics. The lyrics on 'Chin Up' will really strike you..."Everybody knows that you'd break your neck to keep your chin up"...I still can't get that out of my head.

The tempo remains pretty much even keel throughout, although 'What Do I Know?' amps things up a bit. The music generally has a "chill'n" effect, and lyrically you'll actually find a lot of positive, uplifting messages and thoughts.

5.0 out of 5 stars My sunshine November 17, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album is fantastic, and is my album of the year. Aaron's voice has never been stronger, and his melodies more beautiful. The instrumentation adopts a minimalist approach that suits the vibe of the album. This is a perfect example of how simple instrumentation can be utilized in a way that is genius in its own right. My favorite track is one of the lighter numbers, "The Day I lost My Voice," which also happens to feature a lovely female vocalist - one of the many surprises on the album. If you enjoy the mellow vibe of Copeland's last release "Eat, Sleep, Repeat," beautiful melodies, and interesting sonic textures, then I would recommend checking out "You Are My Sunshine."

Beautiful. I would need to write a book to fully review. This effort transcends mere words. Buy it if you're ready to see again and to be changed...for the good.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Only Sunshine September 3, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
NPR's All Songs Considered recently asked it's followers to tell them which songs topped their iTunes music most played list. I was surprised to find out that the cd I have listened to most since initiating my iTunes account is Copleand's "You Are My Sunshine." I have been asking myself how that happened. It isn't the first cd that comes to mind when I consider my favorite music of all time. But as I have thought about its preeminence on my list, I have realized how much I just really love this cd. I know there are some longtime fans who were dismayed at the shift in sound, but it is this recording that drew me to their sound in the first place. In fact, now that I own all of their past recordings, I can say that I like them in descending order, starting back from this one. Their sound certainly matured and mellowed with age, but the fact is that You Are My Sunshine is simply a gorgeous recording. I discovered it at a turbulent time in my life -my 18 year old daughter had just been killed by a drunk driver - and this cd helped me to find some peace. There was a time when You Are My Sunshine felt like it was my only sunshine. I was drawn to it in the first place because of the title - I used to sing You Are My Sunshine to my children every night when I put them to bed (the song - You Are My Sunshine does not appear on the cd, but it is available on The Grey Man E.P.)
I'm a literature guy, so I usually have to respond to the lyrics first to really get into a band. There are a few notable exceptions to this rule: the Cocteau Twins, Sigur Ros...There's nothing wrong with the lyrics of this recording, but, to be honest, I fell in love with the sweet and vulnerable sound of it and have only learned to appreciate the lyrics with repeated listenings. You Are My Sunshine will not appeal to headbangers, I'm sure. But for those of us looking for a little peace and beauty in our lives, You Are My Sunshine is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing November 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
When I first listened to this album, I was taken aback. A Copeland fan for years, I was amazed at how they were able to produce yet another set of songs that are nothing short of wonderful. Adding Rae Cassidy on some tracks was a nice touch. This album is by far the best. It's a shame that they are breaking up in the spring, but at least they left us with a piece of art that is really a culmination of 9 years of Copeland.

Notable Tracks
-Not Allowed 6/5
-The Grey Man 5/5
-Good Morning Fire Eater 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars COPELAND shine March 11, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Copeland gets it done with this cd. The music is excellent and they just come together very well as a band on this cd. I like this cd beacause a majority of the songs are upbeat, involving the whole band as a whole. Great cd!
