Recorded in a local, professional recording studio in NJ, Caryn, Rup and Mikey ventured in to the studio and came out with seven very different, very catchy tunes. This was made in 2002 at the end of their sophomore year of high school and was all recorded over a matter of a few days. Be sure to check out their 2nd CD, which they put out the following year; Running, Pacing, & Learning to Crawl. Track 1: Anger Management is a punk-influenced song about feeling frustrated in a relationship; as the chorus chants 'can you tell me why, it always has to be my fault?' Track 2: Drip Into Me is a ballad with an interesting, flowing time signature/feel change that is anything but typical of your average pop ballad, but it flows and it's as smooth as butter. It's about needing someone; the chorus pleads 'like the rain, you crash down on me, soaking in to me, dripping in to my heart, we can't be apart.' Track 3: And What's More is a crazy rock track featuring a trippy-sounding bridge (a big departure from it's aggressive rock beginning), as well as big dynamic (loud/soft) changes. How many songs do you know that rhyme 'woodpecker' with 'upsetter'? Brilliant! Track 4: Majestic Tranquility is only the beginning of the ridiculousness that is Falling Stars (see Intro and Half Your Age on Falling Stars' second album, Running, Pacing, & Learning to Crawl). It's very goofy, especially considering these deep 'ooohs' and 'ahhs' that you would picture coming from a fat Latino man are coming from a tall, skinny white boy. It has a Latin flavor and the guitar part is inspired by Carlos Santana's style. Track 5: Rememberance features a great organ-like keyboard sound and a guitar solo that Caryn is still very proud of writing/playing. It was written right after the R&B young sensation Aliyah's death and the events of the 911 attack on NY in September of 2001, in which many lost their friends and family members. It begins with a very quiet, somber chorus, which by the end of the song turns into a triumphant, resilient promise that 'we'll be carrying on, your legend lives through us.' Track 6: See is the real pop-rock heavy hitter of the album.... and it features a clarinet solo. Only Falling Stars. Very radio friendly (nudge nudge all you record company/producer folk reading this). Track 7: This Sad Love Song. It's a sad love song. Go figure. This is actually the first complete song (not just lyrics) that Caryn Feder ever wrote. Very Bush influenced. Mikey adds sob-like background vocals. It is our sincerest hope you purchase this labor of love and enjoy every second of it.
