Music Review & Giveaway - The Rattles

~ Posted on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at 5:40 PM ~

You have no idea how hard it is for us to keep this to ourself! I've been contacted by Nathalie from the Musebox a couple of weeks ago to do a review for her latest project, The Rattles, a lively band of furry, family-friendly critters who released their debut album, 'Rattle On' on August 17th.

Excerpt from Nathalie's email to me:

"With a fresh, modern fusion of classic rock and power pop, similar to The Beatles, They Might Be Giants, and The Monkees, this colorful quartet has set themselves apart from the average children's music group by creating a listening experience that parents and adults can enjoy as well. Similar to the music of Yo Gabba Gabba, this project is about creating music EVERYONE can groove out to!"

The moment I clicked on to the link given (sample 3 songs provided in The Rattles website), Ben just got down to dancing and shaking and nodding his head. I've never seen my boy reacted so quickly to a song!

Believe me, even just by listening to the 3 songs provided in The Rattles website are enough proof for us that this music album is totally awesome!


If you don't believe me, see for yourself by clicking the following thumbnails to view Youtube videos of Ben dancing to one of the songs.

Pictures below are taken when I received the actual music CD from Nathalie for my full review.

What I love about this music album?

* Ben gets down to dancing and grooving to the songs!

* The members in the band are a band of furry, family-friendly critters, all cutely illustrated

* The music video and sound is perfect for Ben at this age who loves fun, groovy and cartoonish stuff now!

* The music is not just for children. Even hubby and I are dancing along to the songs too!

* Their music CD is made of recycled materials! How eco friendly is that?!

* Our favorite songs: Rattle On, R-A-T-T-L-E-S, Lucky Sam's Banana Stand, Wavy Lane, Goodbye Yesterday.

my little boy, Bryan love to dance with songs! I am sure he likes the songs and the cartoon too!
I haven't listen to the songs yet, I am not sure will I like it as my little boy but my favourite part will be the CD is made of recycled materials.
I read to my little boy the story about "our wonderful earth" everynight. This is the story about how our earth gives us those wonderful resources and why&how should we REUSE, RECYCLE & REDUCE.
My hubby rolls his eyes everytime I read this story to my little boy. He said it is too early for him. For me, graduated from environmental sciences, this is the perfect time to get him usual with these 3Rs & save our earth.

Hahaha... I think that's all for now if not will become a grandmother story instead.

At last but not least, hope I can get the CD from you. Thanks Jenny ^_^

I deserve this music album because the little miracle in me jiggles and moves along with the RATTLES. After 5 years of trying and now 7 months of bed rest this little miracle has come a long way and its such a pleasure to feel it moving in me. Its amazing how receptive it is to such music! I will definitely be playing this CD when its born so it can jiggle all its way tru toddlerhood! Smile
