We have been dancing along to The Rattles for a few days now. My kids love them. They have a very 70s feel, with songs that last about 2 minutes and easy to follow lyrics. This is not the typical kids music. It isn't annoying! It isn't pop music done over with kids voices. And I love that they have songs my kids are interested in. Right away I went to track #3, Shipwreck in the Sky, for my little love that is obsessed with pirates right now. And wouldn't you know, they start singing about a captain with one eye! My oldest love asks for the songs and the babe just dances. We are loving The Rattles!!!
Here is what's being said about the Rattles: New York, NY – Armed with a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed fusion of classic rock and power pop, The Rattles are on a roll! Parents, kids, and music lovers of all ages have been singing unanimous praises for ‘RATTLE ON’ (August 17th), the lively full-length debut from this furry musical menagerie – composed of life-long friends Gus, Sal, Hal, and Kitty.
Acclaimed parenting author and ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ Editor, Susan Heim referred to the album as “unique”, “catchy”, and “awesome” while Blissful Bee Blog recommended it to “anyone who has children that love music.” The Clever Mommy Chronicles drew comparisons to The Beatles, They Might Be Giants, and Rilo Kiley, and raved, “Really, truly, the CD is fantastic. In fact, I was disappointed because it only has nine tracks. I found myself wanting more. That’s pretty big for a kids’ CD!”
