ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Green Revolution are a 4-piece rock band from Yuma, AZ. They balance a love for creative song writing and studio experimentation with a love for straight-ahead rock and catchy pop. They do not sound like The Beatles or Radiohead, but incorporate those bands' same attitudes in creating music which is to defy genre and employ imagination in everything they do.

"As Far as Twenty Pesos Can Go" is an eclectic mix of music underscoring smart, insightful and sometimes even humorous lyrics. Johnny Cash (Entropy, The Band Plays on for Those Lost), The Pixies (Mi Rita), and Bob Dylan (Jack Kerouac was a Filthy Liar) are just a few influences that lie just below the surface of many songs, while others chart territory completely unique.

A few reviews from peers:

"I love music like this, so different and distinct from everything else out there you know?" - Nicholas Williams (singer/songwritter from Columbus, Ohio)

"I really like the music. Very nice job with the songwriting and recording. You guy's have developed a great overall sound that's pretty signature." - John Candido (singer/songwritter from Laguna Beach, CA)

"Very cool and refreshing music. I think it has personality." - N from Toy (band from Brescia, Lombardia Italy)

Creative and Insightful
I'm so glad my friend introduced me to this CD and band. I was happily shocked the first time I listened to it because the music was so unique. This is the type of album that grows on a person. The music seems to linger even after it's no longer heard.

impressive!
I was very impressed with the diversity and originality of the Green Revolution's first release! I would recommend it to anyone interested in independent music and some new refreshing sounds.

Plumpalope

Awesome!
The songs on this CD are very well written, very well played, and very well sung. Hopefully, after you play in L.A., you can find the time to come up to the U.P.!

Eclectic. Catchy. Mysterious. Loud. But mainly it's really freakin' good.
Mysterious. Catchy. Eclectic. Loud. But mainly it's really freakin' good. The four star review is only in place for want of another album.

Next year we'll be reviewing bands and saying they are trying to sound like the Green Revolution. To talk about how a voice sounds or who they may borrow a style from wouldn't do this (??debut??) album justice. Just listen.

A. Anus

so not bad
this cd was the most terrible awsomely fantasticular cd i have listened to in a while. it sounds like a floozy using the washroom, i am in like with it.

Yuma and Indie Rock at it's best!
From the first time I heard their MP3's on www.myspace.com/thegreenrevolution I knew that this would be a great album. They are great guys and play good music. This is a must listen to piece it both sooths and intensifies. I remember at first the voice was not fitting, but replay after replay you will definately get a feel for their sound. I can't wait til you guys play a live show, hopefully I can get you guys something either in Yuma or out here in L.A. A definate must for anyone who is into indie,progressive, and experimental rock. Pictures From Mars has been my favorite track and is very moving both Lyrically and Musically!
