In a world full of clutter and over exposure it's rare to find an honest approach to music. Long Island, NY's Project 27 have taken such a path with their debut full length CD, Smarten Up! The record chronicles songwriter Joey Mac's transformation from a teen to young adulthood. These 12 tight, well written and perfectly produced songs capture a sense of urgency, honesty and effort rarely seen. Most write ups like this hype with terms like "epic" or "anthems" or "ear meltingly great". None of that silly bullshit here....It's simply a"Great Record!"
