ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dog on Fleas’ 5th CD, Beautiful World, is an adventurous album, with it’s own beautiful world view, that will give you joy, hope, some new dance moves, and songs that will stick in your head for the next 10 years. Musical saws, piccolo, trombone, saxes, Udu drums, and Moog keyboards augment the drums, bass, guitar, and spirited vocals of the band.

"Beautiful World" is a change in directions in some ways, and also a continuation of the Fleas’ ever-expanding world. The title song and Birds of a Feather come from Dean and John’s old band, the For Sale by Owner Orchestra. That band was very theatrical and experimental, with all 10 members playing toys, instruments they didn’t know how to play, and non-instruments. For Sale by Owner members Melissa Wood and Otto Kentrol make guest appearances on Beautiful World. The Fleas also enlist Frances England to sing on the CD’s final song, Babies, a love song to all the babies of the world. Beautiful World is really, really full of love, in many forms. Lima Bean, sung by the one and only Lorette Velvette, is a love story about a Lima Bean her friend Slug. You can also hear Uncle Rock in there doing his best Slug voice. I Love Your Accent features friends of the Fleas from all over the world. Water Planet is sung by aliens expressing their love for our watery planet. In fact, most of the songs on "Beautiful World" are full of love, if you just dig in to find it.

A work of art not to be missed
One of the more amazing, stranger, and uplifting pieces of music I've ever come across.
If you have kids, please help cultivate the good taste of the generation by purchasing this album for them! My favorite thing about this record is that it is not just kids' music though, it's music for all ages--kids and adults (and all in between).
Also as an audio engineer and producer I am quite in awe of this album's sound. The arrangements of the songs and their instrumentation, as well as the shimmering, thick sound of the record blew me away from the first and continue to do so.
To put it simply: everything is in its right place.
If you like good music, good living and unique explosions of creativity (who doesn't?), you must experience this singular work by the boys (and girls) from Dog on Fleas.

Lovely album, highly recommended!
Great for kids!

MORE GREAT MUSIC
When I think of kids' music that's equally enjoyable to us grown-ups, Dog on Fleas tops the list. BEAUTIFUL WORLD--as usual--pulls off the difficult balancing act of offering engaging, sophisticated music.
