Because I Said So! Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Is it weird that I wanted to listen to my children's new CD even when they weren't around?  It was seriously that good!
"Hot on the heels of winning a GRAND PRIZE in this year's John Lennon Songwriting Contest, North Carolina's favorite pop band for kids, Big Bang Boom, is poised to come from and center on the national stage with the September 18th release of their third studio CD, Because I Said So!
Comprised of three devoted dads who just happen to be seasoned professional musicians, Big Bang Boom is know for laying down solid, hard-rockin', parent-friendly music that's FUN.   As children of the '70s and '80s, with influences ranging from the Bee Gees and KISS to Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, and U2, Big Bang Boom writes music that's all about what makes pop music popular, cleverly mixing pop, alternative, hip-hop, country and other styles to create their own playful,  contemporary sound.  As a rule, their lyrics are written from a child's perspective, something that comes naturally to these dad-musicians, who quite pragmatically insist that this makes the 'messages' in their songs more palatable than they would be if voiced by an adult authority figure."
My kids and I were able to receive a copy of Because I Said So! and we have all been thoroughly enjoying it!  I'm not sure if it's the rocking sound or the fresh lyrics that we like more, but something about this album just appeals to my nature and makes me want more!  Over the weekend my kids and I made a huge fort and listened to this album 2 or 3 times in a row.  We seriously just hung out in my daughter's room listening to the music and enjoying our time together.  The songs on Because I Said So! are fantastic!  They appeal to the spirit of a kid, yet have the real sound that parents won't get sick of!!  The songs paint pictures of every day situations and familiar topics that families and kids experience.  They are easy to connect with and even encourage kids to learn.  
Big Bang Boom truly hit the mark at making music that is enjoyable for the whole family!  The album truly has something for everyone and is great to experience at every age level!  I highly recommend this album to others as our family is totally hooked on it!
