What Shoppers Have To Say About LAREAU's "Changes":
Reviewer - Terrance Clinton: Yeah, Baby! That's the way poppa likes it. Go baby, GO! Just got my copy of "CHANGES" by Lareau and boy did they make a whopper of a mistake on this one. They should have called it "CHARGES" because it's full of high-voltage energy. As I see it, there are two reasons to get this one, Larry Lareau's lyrics and Darren Payne's drums. The guy's got classical music training AND perfect rhythm, which is crucial during the critical times of my day. Golly-wolly he's good. I like to crank up the music and watch CNN with the sound turned off. No kidding.
Reviewer - Tango Bravo: As the Blues Travelers once said "the hook brings you back". This album is constantly in my CD player. Excellent arrangements with thought provoking lyrics and excellent sound. Something about Larry Lareau's voice makes you NEED to sing along. This band is a hidden gem. I'm just waiting for arena's full of people to shout "I should not be drinkin!!". The first song gets its hooks into you right away, making you want to hear every song on the CD. If you love contemporary rock or EMO, this album MUST be part of your collection.
Reviewer - George Fletcher: Creative, well written songs. I find myself humming some of these very accessible melodies and have to think hard where I heard them. I highly recommend it!
