I started listening to 2.5 Children a year or two ago and loved them, so after awhile of debating I decided to pick this up. This album is alright. What's on this disc is exactly what the title suggests. Not sure on how much play this will get from me, but I'm sure it will get a few spins. If you like folk music than you should pick this up. It's pretty good.

Awesome!!!! I spent my teen years going to 2.5 Children shows and watching Chris scream and jump around the stage with a tripple mowhawk. This grown up version of Chris is nice to hear. Very cool acoustic songs that still make you feel like getting up out of your chair and jumping around! Excellent political comentary as well.

holy shit this is great! i remember seeing 2.5 children in crowded basements playing songs they never even practiced and it sounded like they had been playing them for years. chris' talents from 2.5 come through loud and clear on this recording. he is an amazing song writer/musician/person.

FROM THE CD "this album was recorded in the spirit it was conceived. people coming together to create full songs, to put a message out to our country. a message that takes not one bite of the spoonfuls of such propaganda drivel as that which is "broadcast" by fox news and uttered from the think tanks in the pentagon."

pick up this cd, you won't be dissapointed. RISE UP!
