Editorial Reviews

The Pop Ups (Jason Rabinowitz and Jacob Stein) are a Brooklyn-based musical duo which the Wall Street Journal says reflects the creativity percolating on the independent children's music scene. Time Out New York Kids recognizes them as one of the top 15 kids music bands in the nation. In April 2014, the duo made their national TV debut on Sprout s Sunny Side Up Show, and they will release their third all-ages release celebrating the power and joy of creativity, Appetite for Construction.

For some reason, kid music is just DUMB. The lyrics are stupid, the writers of the songs just repeat the same things over and over, and I don't understand why, just because it's for kids, it's got to be uninteresting and have poorly-written lyrics, and uninteresting musical parts.

That's not an issue with this record. Aside from a couple of tunes that get on my nerves (which happens on grownup CD's, too, let's face it), this record is solid!

We discovered the Pop Ups on one of the kid music channels on Sirius Satellite Radio, and since my receiver is an older one, I was able to add the Pop Ups to the playlist, so every time they came on any station, we could click over and give a listen. My daughter and I liked what we heard very much, so we decided to buy a CD. This will not be our last Pop Ups CD.

The lyrics are appropriate for children without being too simple. The musicianship is solid. The chord progressions are interesting. If you're tired of trite kid music, please give the Pop Ups a listen. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

Another awesome album. I've been a fan of the Pop Ups for a while now and was very excited to play the new album. It's great. I love it and watched my almost 3 year old have a dance party while listening to it. We did the robot dance in style, played with blocks, and now she wants a costume party. Thanks for another great cd that the whole family enjoys.

I’m a big fan of the albums that the band They Might Be Giants have produced to teach things to children while entertaining their parent – and any adult for that matter – with clever lyrics and melodies that won’t leave your head.
When someone sent me the link to the YouTube video for the song “All The Shapes”, I was hooked on The Pop Ups. (Check out the video – especially if you have a subway in your city!).

The two guys who are The Pop Ups obviously grew up on music of the 1980s ‘cause That’s the style they use most. If you didn’t know these songs were composed in 2014, you’d think this was an 80s pop album you didn’t know about. Everyone will have their favorite track – mine, after “Shapes”, is “Bug Out”. Try some samples and you’ll be hooked.

The Cd comes in a digipak with the guest musicians listed on the left inside and a photo of Jason and Jacob (the Pop Ups) on the right. Too bad they didn’t include the lyrics so you could sing along. (Maybe they are on their website – I haven’t looked.)

I’m a “mature adult” with no kids but I’ve been playing this Cd all week. I can’t imagine there isn’t a child (from age2 or 3 up!) who won’t flip over this album. And – what’s great is that the music won’t bore the parents!

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

Both my son and I enjoy this music. Puzzles, cooking, laundry all the standard parts of our daily life have an agreeable soundtrack now. It is nice to have music that is kid appropriate that doesn't drive me insane. I need music to live.
