Customer Reviews

Saint Mad's heartfelt debut!

Every cut in "Waiting to Start," the debut album of the Philadelphia-based group Saint Mad, is a treasure! Their music contains a fresh vocal and instrumental sound (how many bands have a euphonium, guitar, trumpet, and keyboard playing together?!) Harris and Michael are a tour de force songwriting duo, and all four musicians blend their voices together in impeccable harmony. I found the songs to be delightful to the ear along with its very positive message to keep striving with kindness in today's cynical world (as in "God Gives You What You Need" and "What Else Is Kindness For" among other cuts). This is certainly a new group to listen out for. I look forward to their next album. Buy it for someone you love!

Quite an astounding mix

This CD mixes the whimsical and serious, folk and jazz, originals and standards, spirituality and the human condition, all the while putting a euphonium where the bass guitar is supposed to be, and a jazz trumpet as the icing on the cake, better than it's ever been done before. Ok, it has never been done before, but when you hear it you'll wonder why. This is positively delightful in every respect. Jim Harris is a classic folksinger (with a folksinger’s voice if you like that sorta thing which I do) and the folk songs (especially Not for a Long Time) are as good as it gets. Martha Michael and Molly Mahoney have as pretty of voices as you'll find anywhere, and the three-part harmony just works. Martha's and Molly's solo vocal efforts are simply beautiful. Check out some samples and you won't be disappointed. When I first acquired this disc I was a little skeptical as it comes in a simple cardboard sleeve. Well, everything they saved in packaging was clearly put into production, which is completely first rate.

Waiting To Start

This album is a breath of fresh pop air. This is a group of 4 extraordinarily gifted musicians and vocalists who have mastered the craft of making listenable, hummable pop that lifts you up. This isn't pop geared to the 18-24 demographic. This is an album unapologetically geared to a mature audience. The instrumentation absolutely tickled my ears. You don't hear a lot of euphonium-trumpet-keys-guitar combos in popular music. But it totally works. The arrangements are clever. The vocals are tastefully done, both lead and background. The sound of this record is crisp and clean, letting you hear each unique sound as it's presented. I would (and have) recommend this album to anyone who appreciates well-crafted songs, performed by talented musicians who are obviously having fun while making great music. Buy this album, give it a listen, and I guarantee you'll hear something that will put a smile on your face. In my case, at least one of the songs has wedged it way into my head and won't let me forget it. No worries. It's a good feeling.
