ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In a time when emo and pop-punk acts rule the airwaves, there's a new sound in Detroit. Driven by memorable melodies and uplifting harmonies, Woodward's catchy and exciting new brand of indie rock has taken the Detroit scene by storm. With childhood friends John-Paul
Zammit and Dan Karmel trading off on the mics, Woodward truly came into being in early 2006 as the band crystallized around drummer Dave Tilove's pocket-tight beats and keyboardist Steve'O Hull's tearing synth lines. Named after Woodward Avenue, home of the famous Dream Cruise and landmark to all of the Detroit area, Woodward has tapped into something completely new and exciting; a brand of music that is distinctly recognizable and full of personality. Barely a year old, Woodward has already packed such nationally renowned venues as the St.
Andrew's Hall and The Blind Pig, and have earned their reputation for "rocking your socks off", playing alongside such notable artists as
Brian Vander Ark from The Verve Pipe, Howling Diablos, and The Hush Sound.

I love these guys. This cd is a healthy dose of happy go lucky music. It's the kind of music you listen to, to make your day perk up. I recommend it to anyone who like bands like Weezer, Wheatus, and the Beatles. I can't get enough of them and I am so glad they finally got to put out a cd so the world can know what some of us already found out.

A Rare Gem!
If there were ever a band destined for super-stardom, it’s Woodward. I’m not talking about MTV and top-40. I’m talking about selling out Wembley Stadium or Yankee Stadium or even Maracana stadium; several nights in a row. I don’t mean to be overly effusive with my praise for Woodward, but if ever there were a perfect package in the rock world it might be called But Your Kids Are Gonna Like It. Drawing on sonic influences that transcend the 1970s and 1980s FM Rock genre, Woodward has built a modern sound that is equally welcoming to young rock fans and their parents (perhaps even young grandparents).

This is a quintessential rock and roll album. Starting out with “All Over (Washed Out)”, Woodward leads off sounding like Billy Joel singing with the Ramones. The fun isn’t over there. “Find The Words” sounds like it might have been lifted from an early Queen album. I actually found myself returning to the Queen reference several times throughout the album. What makes this album such a treat is that even when Woodward sounds like someone else, they are distinctively themselves.

“Find The Words” is easily my favorite track here, but there isn’t a weak track here. “Did I?”, “Take It Back”, “Days You Come From” and “Far From Home” are all outstanding. This CD actually got loaded to my iPod and has been on near-continuous play at work for the last three days. It’s that good.

Woodward delivers a set of hook-heavy modern retro-rock songs that are a sonic pleasure. The songwriting is top-notch, the vocals are perfectly fit to the songs, and the harmonies stand up with the likes of Queen or Styx. Add to all of this Woodward’s reputation for electrifying live shows and you know that these guys are going somewhere. Don’t be surprised if a few years from now theirs is the concert ticket you can’t buy anywhere but on eBay. “But Your Kids Are Gonna Love” gets my highest rating, and then some.
