I usually listen to a lot of rock, but I happened across Chester French last year, and I thought the songs on their myspace were great.
This album definitely does not disappoint at all. I don't liek the pop on the radio, but this music is pop like The Beatles and The Beach Boys. It is beautifully crafted. D.A. and Max put a lot of thought into what instruments and sounds to use, and it all comes together well. I also like the hip-hop influence and how adventurous the songs can, along with how extrememly catchy they are. I can' stop humming Neal and Not Over You.

This album has to be one of the most honest and touching collections of music I have ever heard. There are several different styles to each song but the underlying theme is this amazing journey that they take you on as they cover in their songs being picked up on a label, coming to LA and their other many adventures on the road to making it. The song sleep is for any artist that hits that block and tries desperately to get over it. The descriptions they use are so vivid it's like I'm reading a book and now I'm getting lost in the second life of another human being. The sad, soft, slightly imperfect tone to D.A. Walach's voice melts my heart. His solo music is even more emotional and personal. I feel like throughout all the Chester French songs (both albums) and his solo work there is a reoccurring theme of the one who got away. It makes me wonder, did u find her. D.A. did you find her in a dream?

I came across Chester French in the magazine Nylon. (Peaches Geldof, one of Nylon's contributors, is Max Drummey's ex-wife and could be the "peach" that he slyly references as being "hung up again on a peach" in track 11 Not Over You) I assumed that they would be a litle too precocious, too cheeky monkey, a little too death by irony. (It should be noted that my ideas of what's good in music are old enough to buy their own liquor.) But I downloaded their free song "She Loves Everybody" off of Amazon and was surprised that I really liked it. I took a chance on their full length debut and found it equally great- it's original and fresh. I like how they use electronica elements in some songs, early Beatles stylings (as other reviewers have mentioned) in a couple tracks, and more "traditional" sounds such as a Latin beat in their introduction and a country feel in my personal favorite, Beneath the Veil, trk 9. Take it for a spin, you may be as surprised and delighted as I was.

In listening to this album, I was taken not only by its a lack of originality, but more significantly, its lack of heart. Hailing from Harvard, the story behind this duo may make for a good headline, but this media ploy may prove detrimental as their music does not reflect well on that institution's intellectual integrity. What you hear in these 13 songs is not artistic ingenuity but a forced amalgam of brash sounds that neither please nor inspire. The lyrics settle for easy rhymes that have been recycled in countless form, as in "don't want to be your man, just want to hold your hand, but I don't think you understand." These songs are not crafted to pull one's emotions or even to engage the imagination; rather, they offer a short ride that is as quick as it is disposable. In the end, this effort is a collection of songs that are slick, incohesive and, ultimately, irrelevant.

Chester French is the high energy indie pop duo singer David-Andrew "D.A." Wallach and multi-instrumentalist Maxwell Drummey. The talented team met as undergraduates at Harvard. The band name is a nod to the sculptor of the famous John Harvard statue in Harvard yard. Because they spent a number of years practicing and performing, their debut album, "Love the Future" is a breath of fresh air. Drummey's skills are evident in the wide range of instruments he plays. Their joint song writing gives us fun lyrics that match the music.

Chester French covers a lot of ground. Whether it is their ode to groupie love in 'Bebe Buell', agonizing about a free-spending girl friend in 'The Jimmy Choos', or the more serious 'Country Interlude' with its melody verging from the pop stylings of the other songs into experimental rock. They can as easily switch to more macabre humor in "Beneath the Veil". And as a nod to their sophisticated schooling, where else will you find between songs, a classical String Interlude.

Love the Future gives you a lot of reasons to love this fun album.

I've never felt the need to try and convince people to listen to something that I enjoy. With that said, these guys are amazingly talented and their album will warrant the top spot in you disc changer (if anyone still has one of those). I've been listening to them since the beginning of last year and anxiously awaited a full lenght LP. The time was well worth it as I believe they delivered one of the most complete musical experiences in years. Their lyrics and musical arrangements are great but more importantly smart. It feels as if they argued over how everything should sound. I say that because it sounds as perfect as an album not made by The Beatles can be. Buy this album with the confidence of knowing you'll own an important piece of pop work.
