Day in Day Out
'Day In Day Out' is the debut album loaded with acoustic guitars, melodic piano, mandolin, and vocal harmonies. 'As the front men of Mostly Water, Keith Hayman and Jon Hartman have joined together to combine their many talents to create philosophical, upbeat, and hook filled acoustic rock pop pearls of wisdom. This kind of music closes the circle of pop sensibilities while keeping it all very earnest and reflective to maintain the integrity of a great folk song. Right from the opening track 'Allison,' I was intrigued. The words really grabbed me. The catchy phrase of 'Get rid of that boy with the cardigan sweater' continues to ring in my ears long after listening. The pleading of the young man that wants Allison to ditch that boy and play with him is commonplace not happenstance, and his call to her sense of adventure begs her to oblige him. I found it so real, and I could really relate, who couldn't? I normally don't make too many comments about lyrics; I was really taken with the way these two gents put together a song and then set it to music. For instance, 'Long Time' has repetitive phrases that would otherwise be irritating without the proper arrangement and placement of music, but thanks to the blending of the guitar and beautiful piano breaks it turns into a real showstopper. That kind of cleverness would catch any good set of discerning ears and make them stand up at attention quickly. The flow of this CD is very strong and persistent, it never gives you an opportunity to drift away and lose interest. It seems the more I pay attention to everything the music offers me, the more it gives back. This gave me back more than I could have ever hoped for. This a wonderful CD that is well worth taking the time to listen to, and frequently.' -Keith 'MuzikMan' Hannaleck writer for Upbeat Online.
