Album Notes
Recording information: Blackbird Studios, Nashville, TN; Emblem Music, Calabasas, CA; Eye Spy Sound Studio, Nashville, TN; I.T. Sound; Loveshack Studios, Nashville, TN; OMNI Sound; Pain In The Art Studio, Nashville, TN; Sound Stage Studios, Nashville, TN; Soundgrounded, Ljublijana, Slovenia; Warner Studios, Nashville, TN.Photographers: Justin Nolan Key; Joseph Anthony Baker.After the success of their first two singles -- "If I Die Young" and "Hip to My Heart," the Band Perry issued a self-titled teaser: a five-track EP that featured a different mix of the latter track. This is confusing, given that it's also the title of their debut album. This is especially true since everything about the group -- Kimberly Perry (lead vocals, guitar, and piano), Reid Perry (bass guitar), and Neil Perry (drums, mandolin, and accordion) -- is so carefully crafted by management, from their look and public image as a family group to their production and presentation (in other words, everything but their considerable talent for writing hooky, rootsy, country-pop songs). Ultimately, it's the latter that matters most. The Perrys wrote or co-wrote the vast majority of what's here. All five tracks from the EP are included on the album (the original mix of "Hip to My Heart" is here, rather than the video mix) along with six others. The meld of acoustic guitars, mandolins, accordion, and piano is added to considerably, with strings, big kick drums, pedal steel, and of course, fiddle. The songs here are carefully crafted; there isn't an extra word, chorus, or beat. The guitar solos are all in the right places, and all the electric instruments take a back seat to the acoustic ones. Standout tracks include the two singles, the angry, damning heartbreak song "Postcards from Paris," and "Independence," with its anthemic chorus and Kimberly Perry's passionate vocal chock-full of determination. The bluesy little rocker "Double Heart" is uncharacteristic of the rest of the set, and may be its best, most unguarded cut. There is no doubt that the Band Perry fits 2010's contemporary country radio and video format. Despite their obvious gifts for writing, singing, and arranging, the album is prone to some overly glossy mistakes. It will be interesting to see how they mature with album number two. ~ Thom Jurek

Awesome music!!!

Created: 28/10/10
I love TBP. Their songs are so real and they sound great. We lost our infant daughter this summer and 2 days after her funeral, I heard "If I Die Young" on the radio. I had to get the CD. This song has so many parts that remind us of our precious angel. This is the perfect song for anyone that has lost a loved one, especially a child. I absolutely love all the songs on this CD. TBP is very talented and compliment one another in each song. Can't wait for more from The Band Perry!!!

Great tunes! Had heard a couple on the radio but the whole album is decent! "If I Die Young" sounds sweet on a good stereo system. Great vocal harmonies for a young country band.

Excellent CD! Good value for the money.

Created: 16/04/11
I bought The Band Perry CD because I am a fan of country music. I especially like the newer country music and that is exactly what The Band Perry is. The entire CD is good, unlike others where there might just be 1 or 2 songs on it that are good. I would reccommend this CD to any country music fan.

GOT TO HAVE CD...

Created: 19/12/10
These are not your usual country music singers. If I die young is one of the best sings I have ever heard, the whole CD is good, If you don't have this CD, then your missing out on a "great one"...(and by the way, I don't care much for country music, but this CD "rocks".

Great First CD !

Created: 16/12/10
I heard this band on the CMA do a song from the album. After hearing them I wanted to know more about them. Couldn't get that song out of my head. This is a very excellent first CD for this band. Love it and highly recomend it to anyone who likes traditional country with great voices!
