Imagination - Play Date

Transient

Artist: Play Date 

Album: Imagination 

Age Range: 2 through 6

Description: Don't let the punk backgrounds of Greg Attonito (the Bouncing Souls) and Shanti Wintergate fool you -- the tunes here are, for the most part, very poppy.  As I noted in my NPR review of the album, there's a less aggressive sound than on a lot of punk records (and it takes a particularly mellow turn near the end), so if you're looking for a kindie mosh pit and outright rebellion, this might disappoint you.  But songs like "Rad" and "I Can Sing" feature a celebration of self-expression, and that's a pretty punk attitude to try to retain as kids grow up.  You can listen to the 35-minute album hereImagination is pop-punk catnip for the preschool set.  Recommended.
