ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Starting with his phenomenal knack and intuitive sense for weaving electronics with an acoustic mindframe, Byrnes takes the lush washes of swirling space rock and caramel-textured indie pop and breeds it with math rock, progressive rock, emo and even a touch of piano-centered pop. Comparisons are a dangerous stretch- one can hear hints of this and that, Coldplay, Beatles, David Gray- but pinpointing Byrne's music is like trying to replicate a kaleidoscope's interior with a charcoal pencil. The striking, vivid, strident colors mix with a fractal-like, geometrical structure that allows this music to knock you out of your expectations and assumptions and land you in a field of awe. Brilliant- I couldn't stop listening."

-- CD Baby


Byrnes is a band formed by singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Tyler Byrnes. The eclectic nature of his debut album requires the listener to peruse most, if not all, the sound clips to get the entire picture. Though the music sounds accessible and has a great pop sensibility, there are undercurrents of rock, hip hop, African kalimba music, folk and ragtime.

All the songs on the album show an impressive array of musicality and effective songwriting. Byrnes has put out an inspirational, dynamic album with depth and dimension. No song on the album is lacking in substance. It gives the whole pop world a swift kick in the ass for being half asleep for the past twenty years.

I've never been a big fan of saxophone in rock music, but Byrnes uses the sax quite tastefully in his compositions. This album is great and must be heard either in a car or a home stereo. Sampling it over the internet does not do this album justice. The Byrnes CD is still in my car stereo and it's been over a week since I received it in the mail. My commute is almost one hour a day round trip, so I've heard the entire CD about 10 times. My favorite tracks are "Freedom Wants Us Too Badly" "Treat Me Right" and "Diamonds Inside". All of the tracks are great. Excellent album. Great production. Great songwriting. Great performance by all musicians involved.

The music is motion, and it moves.
I like this CD for many reasons. But the number one reason is that the songs show thought. You can feel the influence of John Lennon, and Zepplin. Yes, there are many instruments used on this album but it all ties together nicely. I recomend this to anyone who wants a good CD for their car. I have listened to mine on many a drive.
