This album is a collection of family conversations from having braces to learning about unconditional love, self esteem, passages of time, selling the first family car and various perspectives of family members as they grow with each other. Songs range from children to parents and vice versa and even someone who claims to have been taken up in a flying saucer. The lyrics are clever and the melodies are memorable for the entire family.
Why we like it: The Grammy winning Pullara packs his CD full of whimsical, sometimes wistful tunes and he achieves a nice folksy quality with both the music and the lyrics. He takes a father’s perspective on songs like “The More Teeth Missin’ The Better For Kissin’” and “Three Ring Circus,” while the poignant “Where’s Daddy?” is a plea from a child to his dad to stop watching ballgames on the TV. There is a Ralph World-ly quality to fun numbers such as “Bessie Sweet Bessie” and “Aliens Playing Bluegrass” and the album ends on a hopeful note with a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Heaven Is 10 Zillion Light Years Away.”
