It should come as no surprise to anyone who has ever read one of my more favorable children’s CD reviews that I am being constantly wowed by the music coming out of this genre, Mo Phillips’ Monster Suit is no exception. Phillips takes kids music and makes it cool. So cool in fact I spent a little more then I probably should have listening to the album on my own. The musicianship on the album is phenomenal, the songwriting both quirky and powerful, and a blend of pop country and rock that keeps your toe tapping. I could seriously throw this album on a loop and listen to it infinitely without getting bored.
The numerous times that I listened to Monster Suit I knew that I was going to be stuck on it. I hear so many influences in the album that I can associate with and messages that I agree with for my children, when the tunes aren‘t totally silly. At 34+ minutes the album is excellently paced and completely enjoyable. Head on over to the official Mo Phillips website and listen to some of the album and I’m sure you and or your little one will love it just as much. Excellent stuff. Enjoy.
