I Don't Want To Go To School
Released: Apr 2008
The Naked Brothers Band may be transitioning from astoundingly precocious to freakishly so. Nat Wolff's bluesy, hard-working crooning brings to mind (we hate to say it) a young Michael Jackson. He's that preternaturally soulful. The album is a mixed bag -- lots of blues rock, lots of love songs in young mouths -- but when Nat turns angelic, on songs like "I'll Do Anything," you'll be moved regardless of your feelings about child labor. "Great Trip" is the most genuinely childish song on the album, celebrating water slides and nachos for breakfast. Somebody give these kids a childhood!
