October 1, 2004

Music is good and makes me smile. The name "the Julius Airwave" makes me think of good airplanes in the sky that fly through pink clouds and stop at zoos in space. I can see giraffes hiding behind the clouds and monkeys swinging on stars. I would love to go to a zoo in space when Mom gets home from work.

The picture on the cover of this CD has bells and presents flying above the city. I wish there were presents flying over my city right now and it's pink too. I like the easy songs when I listen to them because they are happy. Sometimes they go on too long ("Crumbs") but for most of the time the songs sound nice.

Then some of the songs sound like the guy who sings "Take a Walk on the Wild Side" but with happier parts in it. He says to say that this music is more like the Strokes than like Lou Reed so I will put that in right here.

At the end of this music the songs get slower but it still sounds good and happy. They sing together sometimes and it makes everyone happy face because it sounds pretty. The song is called "Tickle Me Penguin" and the words they say are like this:

"This is just a song
Just another song
It doesn't have to mean anything."

I think that is the feels of this music. They play it good but not too important because it's fun for them to play music.

A song about a girl called "Catherine" is the funniest because it sounds like bad music they play on the radio but he is singing to his girlfriend so it has to be as pretty as she is. I think he wants to play this song on the radio but the rest of the band doesn't want to so that's why they put it at the end of the CD.

I want to play music like this when I'm older or when I'm riding my bike. This music is never too fast and it's good.

Dragons Are The New Pink is a creative album. It is successful in sounding good, and has a Velvet Underground type feel. The packaging for the album is fun, though it doesn't necessarily go with the sound of the band. Either way, this is an enjoyable album, even for kids.
