-CLOSED- The Rattles - Review & Giveaway!


I was contacted a little bit ago with the chance to do a review and giveaway for The Rattles! I love music - it is part of my day, I listen to different music to go with my moods and it is really important to me that my little man grows up with an appreciation of music. I can remeber that when I was little, my dad would come home from work and put on The Beatles or Simon & Garfunkel or Michael Jackson and we would all dance around the house. Those are very happy memories for me and I want my little man to also grow up with fun music memories in our home.

So, when The Rattles CD came in the mail, I opened it right up and popped it in the CD player in our car so that little man and I could listen to it together while we were out running errands! I have to say, that for "kids" music, I really enjoyed it! It was fun, lively, upbeat and catchy! Michael didn't seem to have anything negative to say about it either and I'd like to say that I think he was trying to sing along in his own 9 month old way from the backseat!

The Rattles album, Rattle On will definitely be a keeper in our music collection and I am looking forward to the day when little man can sing along...for real, as we dance around the house together!

Here's a little about The Rattles and their music! The Rattles are a lively band of furry, family-friendly critters who released their debut album, 'Rattle On' on August 17th. 

Their music is fresh and modern while blending in some classic rock and power pop! You could say that their sound is similar to The Beatles, They Might Be Giants, and The Monkees. The Beatles is one of my favorite bands and I could definitely hear where their music was influenced by The Beatles. The Rattles quartet wants everyone to be able to enjoy listening to and grooving to their music - both kids and their parents! You can take a listen to the lead single, "Wavy Lane" and other songs on the official website: RattlesRock.com

The Rattles also just released an official music video for "Rattle On":
