Customer Reviews

One of the best solo albums of the 2010's thusfar.

Displaying Rob Cantor's amazing musical talents to bring an album together, utilizing all of his skills acquired in the band Tally Hall as well as working on other bandmates solo works. He shows you just how a pop album is done in this day and age, covering all the bases you could ever want from perfect harmonies to pounding guitars.

Opening with a killer track, Ghost, soft music and a familiar but distinct guitar sets the stage. Those of you that were introduced to Rob via the Shia LaBeouf Cannibal song will feel right at home. While those that are new will be sucked in as soon as the chorus hits. This is one of the catchiest songs I have ever heard.

Following it is the track that introduced everyone to the album via the amazing music video directed by the genius Andrew Laurich. Old Bike is a return to the musical soundscape and flowing lyrical whimsy that Rob is sometimes known for. Building slowly and fully to a crescendo that is almost unexpected, but always welcomed.

Suddenly you're sucked back to the 80's synthpop days. Which works with the opening line to Garden Of Eden, followed by the hard guitars and sharp vocals. A sound that would be welcome opening for arena acts like Asia or Supertramp.

With another track comes something a little different. Pounding drumlines. Female vocals. Synth driven and more poppy that the previous tracks. This can easily be a strong single with the oncoming harmonies and beautifully deep lyrical content.

Ah, and here is something familiar! I'm Gonna Win is a revamped and really done over well of the old Tally Hall fan favorite All Of My Friends. And it shows, in all of the best ways. The dichotomy of verses to choruses, the way the song flows through itself. And the appropriate use of vocal modulators. All of it is superb.

In a direct opposition, however, is the soft anthem of All I Need Is You, previewed in it's genius GIF music video. The acoustic guitar driven angelic vocal lead song is something that one may find ending an album. But it sits at the bookend of the first half here, and it is the perfect place for it.

Suddenly the gears switch, the album changes, and the second half is opened with one of the best songs on it. The slightly bizarre and catchy Flamingo. Bora contributes his catchy and trademark whistling amongst other things for the album here. The song feels warm and cozy, and all but makes you forget how odd it really is in the sheer quirkiness of it.

But the quirks don't stop there! Oh no! La Telenova featuring guest Jhameel is a return to some of the sounds of the first half of the album. But drives at it's own pace. A huge soaring song of crowd singing and high notes. With lyrics that some out of nowhere and speak volumes in a short song. Honestly one of the most unique tracks on the album.

I am unsure about In Memoriam. But I am sure it'll be a great song once Alan Alda actually passes away.

In the final stretches, Rob brings things back together with the final three tracks. Let Your Mother Know being a very poppy and catchy tune, clever instrumentalists and lyrics that paint a picture help carry it along.

Perfect. Perfect is probably the perfect song on this album. Rob's signature track writing style from the past. Harmonies that are placed perfectly. Just right soundscape for the song. An increasing build that is not too staggered or jarring. It feels like the LaBORAtory was used to the fullest here. And it's a track that gives bands like The Beatles a run for their money while bringing the sound into the 2010's just right.

And finally, Lonely But Not Alone. The album closer that is as good as album closers get. Soft and gentle. The most lyrically heavy track in my opinion on the album. It meanders along the prescribed path and seems like it could go on forever and that'd be just fine. An all but bittersweet ending to the album honestly.

And that was Not A Trampoline. In short. Get it. Get it now. Get it again. Get it for your friends. Get it for your mother. Get a copy and send it to Rob Cantor himself. get five copies for your future pets. And get a copy for your grandmother's friend's old parakeet.


I just really want to know the story behind the chicken leg

So good!

Incredible album. Listen to it straight through.
