Editorial Reviews

On his solo debut, YOU CAN HOLD ME DOWN, singer-songwriter-guitarist William Tell, formerly of acclaimed alt-rock band Something Corporate, rises up with a rockin' antidote for pabulum pop. Filled with catchy hooks, stylish melodies, and sharply emotional lyrics, YOU CAN HOLD ME DOWN is the soundtrack for your first love, your first break-up, your highest highs, and your lowest lows.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Trouble in Here March 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Most people that know William Tell know him as the former rhythm guitarist of the SoCal alt-rock piano group Something Corporate. Everyone else knows him as simply, William Tell. Starting from after his split with the band in 2004, William has been writing his own music and performing shows all across the US, forming himself one hell of a fan base. Admirers old and young, from all parts of the world, who checked into his myspace daily for news of when he would next be performing and what the status on his record was. Well, here we are, two years later, and that barefoot, Canada-track-jacket wearing SoCal rhythm guitarist has finally released his solo effort: You Can Hold Me Down.

If it's catchy hooks and amazing storytelling lyrics of love and life you're looking for, William will not disappoint you. William's song writing skills will amaze you from the start and they will not stop until the record is complete; there's no doubt. It's hard to pinpoint what it is about the style of Will's writing but there's something in it that makes you really feel what he's singing to you. You feel the heartache, the happiness, the loneliness, and everything else that he sings of even if he's not right in front of you. The choruses are all extremely catchy; such as the chorus to "Slipping Under": `Just sing along to you're favorite song, takes you back to where you come from, time and place you can't erase when innocence was you're only shame.' And every track has that same air to it... the same catchy-ness to it... the same amazing pull within the lyrics.

If it's good music you're looking for, William won't disappoint you either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally...The Return Of William Tell... March 16, 2007
By @lex
Format:Audio CD
Will was origianlly known as the barefooted guitar player in the SoCal piano rock band Something Corporate before leaving to pursue his solo career. Well, here it is. "You Can Hold Me Down" is a very impressive debut album indeed. William showcases his talent as a musician and very gifted singer and song writer. There are some incredibly catchy songs here including "Slipping Under" and "Fairfax", in which good friend, former band member and lead singer of Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin, Andrew McMahon, plays piano on. His slow songs, such as "Trouble" and the title track, also deliver and will leave you in a good mood throughout the day. This album is a real treat and hopefully is a sign of good music to come in 2007, but more importantly, emerges William Tell as a very talented and upcoming artist with something to prove to the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars William Tell is true talent!! April 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I first heard William Tell at a concert in Allentown, from that night I knew I would love him. I found him on myspace and found out I could order his cd and get an autographed album art picture. I was so happy. I finally got the autograph. His voice is amazing. His lyrics are beautiful. My favorite song is "Like You, Only Sweeter" and "Young At Heart". I just don't know how to explain him, but I listen to his cd non-stop. I love him so so so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars This guy has talent!! April 22, 2012
By Devyn
Format:Audio CD
I just bought this cd today and I think its awesome with William Tell's talent that he has, I didn't buy it off Amazon I bought it brand new at a Goodwill store, mine has a bonus track on it, and every song on here is great, its one of my favorite albums of all time now, he's got an unique voice too with the great songs on here, I love it so much, its definilty worth the try and I'm wondering why didn't I get this earlier, I would recommend this one to any music fan out that's looking for some great tunes from a great songwriter/singer like William Tell, back then I wasn't really into Something Corperate, now I'm a fan of William Tell, I hope to hear more albums from him the future to come. This one is definitly a winner A++++++++ Two thumbs up for this cd, Way to go, William Tell!:)

3.0 out of 5 stars Tuneful, but indistinct power pop June 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This modern William Tell cut his alt-rock teeth as rhythm guitarist for the Orange County bred Something Corporate. Just as the band was beginning to gain national traction, Tell bolted to pursue a solo career. Three years of writing and touring later, he's released a debut that leaves behind the punk and emo influences of his former band, and dives headlong into the world of power pop. Chime has replaced buzz, and angst has replaced moping and his melodic hooks are more anthemic than his former band's.

Producer Thom Panunzio (who also mixed) has added the layers of major label polish that he perfected on albums by Sheryl Crow, No Doubt, Tom Petty and others. The result is often more calculated than buffed, more form than substance, and though it hits all the right notes it failing to resonate emotionally. This album sounds good, but neither Tell's voice nor his lyrics draw you back to live these songs a second time. [©2007 hyperbolium dot com]

2.0 out of 5 stars somewhat boring and generic January 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The Good
Despite its electric riff intro, "Jeannie" is a full on acoustic ditty about a girl down on her luck. Music has always been an emotional escape for people, whether you're happy, sad, depressed, or angry. "Slipping Under (Sing Along to Your Favorite Son)" explores this notion. Acoustic guitars and piano set the track for "Fairfax." "Like You, Only Sweeter" is the happiest sounding put-down ever. William bumps into a woman that is so much more than his current one. By far it's the best song on the album. Doubled-up guitar strumming and random guitar licks work in harmony on "Maybe Tonight." William pledges his devotion to his lady love on "Just for You."

The Bad
Tell tends to come off a bit whiney, in the vein of those crappy emo singers. Also, there are way too many ballads. If some one bombarded me with all of these feelings and whined about it, I'd kick them to the curb.

The Verdict
William Tell has a knack for emotional songwriting, but his music is somewhat boring and generic.
