Product Description

A Seattle rock-band founded by investor and philanthropist Paul G. Allen, Grown Men debut with their self-titled album of music. Influenced by Hendrix, Pink Floyd and Tom Petty among others, the group writes, performs and produces all their own music.

Review

Five Seattle studio musicians make up the band which has played some clubs and corporate events. -- KOMO-TV

Will Paul Allen bring that same streak of success to the world of rock 'n' roll? Will he join the ranks of such Seattle rock legends as Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain? -- Michael J. Martinez, Eastside Journal

Rock and roll, it has a-plenty, and depression-infused angst along with Love Unrequited, is the prevailing theme. The poetry is so gut-wrenchingly lonely, and it feels like you can hear the author screaming WHY ME?! WHERE'S MY TRUE LOVE?!! I play it when I am feeling the same way, for there's a comfort in knowing someone else may have felt the same way, only they are talented enough to write poetry & music to ameliorate the pain...

despite the contraversial album cover (many of my fellow firefighters desperatly need a life) which is clearly a nod to jimi hendrix, this is a fresh sound showing the influence of pink floyd and other "blues based" pop artists. a nice mix featuring several northwest artists who have "been there and done that". give it a listen, it's worth your time! the cover artwork by famed cartoonist berke breathed (bloom county, outland) is cool despite protests by your local fire marshal!:-}

Have received this album for my birthday from my daughter Tiffany. Never heard of this band before. When I listened to the 1st song my reaction was "that sounds a bit like Pink Floyd" So do the other tracks as well. Think this album unfortunately gets little attention but deserves certainly more of it. Well I am happy to add this cd to my collection of others.

I am used to listening to a different kind of music (eg. Nichole Nordemann), so buying this CD was a departure for me. I bought it for several reasons, including because I liked the "Scratch and Claw" demo, and because I thought some of the lyrics were thoughtful and intelligent (eg."Gardens of Stone," "Time Has it's Reasons," etc.). But I am enjoying it even more than I thought I would. The songs are really good, and each of them is very different in tempo and style. My favorite song by far is "No Choice," because there is this flute/guitar/drum/wah wah thing they do between the 3rd and 4th minute of the song that is literally worth the cost of the entire CD. About halfway through that segment I turn the volume up full blast because I think it is the only proper way to listen to that portion of the song:-)! So you'll be happy to know that somewhere in Arizona "Grown Men" is causing a noise disturbance! Just kidding! But it is definitely worth the hearing loss I'll probably have in old age---it is great music! Other songs, including my original favorite, "Scratch and Claw" are following closely behind, so I am thoroughly enjoying every part of the CD. I really hope you make another one. There are fans out there who really like your music---so do it for their sake, o.k.?

I'm still enjoying this CD after having listened several times. "Gardens of Stone" and "Rhythm of the Hearts" are my favorite songs. Song placement has a nice flow. Vocal's have a nice edge to them and the guitar work and tone are flawless, but a bit understated. I hope there will be a followup CD sometime.
