CD review and giveaway (closed): David Weinstone's All I Want!

Congrats to my winner: bmom76
 
I've recently decided that all great kids' albums share one feature- a totally unexpected rock song in the middle of the album that makes the parents want to headbang and dance around the living room like idiots. Fortunately for me, the new album from David Weinstone, called All I Want!, has that required rock song. Also fortunately for me, my kids are too young to be mortified by this type of behavior, so I can dance and rock out as much as I want.



All I Want is the sixteenth Music for Aardvarks & Other Mammals recording by David Weinstone. Music for Aardvarks & Other Mammals is the brainchild of David Weinstone- born when he was trying to find a music class for his first son- one that had songs that reflected modern day, real life childhood experiences. He failed in finding a class- so he started one himself!


It's really hard to describe All I Want! in a few short sentences. The music is wildly different with almost every song- swinging from folk songs to blues songs to rock and pop songs.  All the songs are different, but the lyrics are all catchy and the whole album is a lot of fun.  It's designed for kids ages 0-7 years old, and I think my kids agree with that rating- they thought it was great. I turned it on today at lunch for them to listen to, and they made it through just a song or two before demanding to be let up to dance.

In addition to the fun of the songs, there's a great message being repeated throughout the whole album- Moms and Dads- all your kids want and need is YOU!  An important reminder in our daily lives!  My two favorite songs are the aforementioned rock song, "All I Want!" and the hysterical and oh-so-full-of-truth "Stroller Trouble". 

All I Want! will be available on March 8th- you can purchase it online at musicforaardvarks.com, amazon.com, cdbaby.com, all major digital download sites, or a retail stores nationwide.

I have good news! One of you will win a copy of this CD for yourself!  Open to US/Canadian mailing addresses.
