Wow! Splendid orchestration. Very Beatles sounding... it sounds like a current Beatles tune. Unbelievable production. Everything works together just like an orchestra should. Loved the melody and vocals.

"DELUSIONS OF GRANDUER" by GILLIES DADDY (Pop Artist)
The fantastic group Gillies Daddy brings back the music of the 60's with their recently released Pop album, "Delusions of Grandeur." This group is extremely reminiscent of the Beatles but with their own progressive modern touches. They display intense precision on their well written original songs and definitely capture the essence of this time period. Each song is dynamically balanced and you will enjoy how they mix up the instrumentation. The song, "Brand New Day," has a catchy beat and vocals that are strong and powerful. "What Could Be Better," is a song that has a bouncy feel and some tight harmonies. The horn riffs on the song, "Life," add a nice feel while the vocals sing the enchanting lyrics. "Children's Games" is a short song that has a mysterious feel and eerie attitude and at the end those great harmonies. If you love the music of the 60's, then the outstanding CD, "Delusions of Grandeur," is just the album you need to hear.
"Why God Made Tears..
Wow, Beatles influence!
Damn, that's serious! . Structure is superb. Recording quality is just brilliant!
Cruel words spoken sweetly...
Retro 60's almost Hermans Hermits BUT VERY wicked lyrics. Very clever well played written and produced.
Almost missed this gem.

I liked the song immediately. There was something about the vocalist that reminded me of John Lennon. This is a well crafted song with intelligent lyrics. The strings sit well and really add to the overall sound. I loved the changes throughout. Well done!
