“… the best songs on this album focus on their strong, sweet folk-pop harmonies.”
“Powerpop trio MEN FROM WHEN have appropriately titled their CD About Time (myspace/menfromwhen). Nearly every song is somehow connected by the thread of time, whether it be a particular year, the physical clock (or even sundial), or how one spends it. And speaking of time, these guys are a bit older than most of the bands whose material I review (they’re about my age), and their style belays that. They are reminiscent of a ‘60s pop feel with harmonies, along the lines of Gary Lewis & the Playboys or the Vogues….Some of the highlights include Silvertone Transistor Radio, Queen of the Sun, and The Sweet Marie. Definite feel good stuff, but not fluff.”
"Jenny McDowell sounds a lot like the power pop bands on the Perfect Pop and That's Perfect Wonderball labels used to sound like. A strong melody and with the emphasis on power .… then pure bliss in the form of The Same Dirt Road, a beautiful song which reminds me of a lost Men & Volts track, excluding the mini-synthesizer-solo. Men From When can be compared to M&V in other aspects too, rock songs rooted in the pre-prog rock era and the "sing with the voice you have"-attitude I really like; vocal harmonies et al..."
“The lyrics are good and memorable, especially those from the song Things You Said That Day: “World in your hands, you through it away, you stuck to what you believed in. The things you said that day,” which the band has dedicated to John Lennon.The first song, Jenny McDowell, and the title song, About Time, are arguably the best songs on the album. Jenny McDowell is most likely the song that you’ll be singing after listening to the entire album; however, About Time has a catchy and creative chorus with slower verses in-between, “The clock keeps speeding around the bend, The days they race into a blend. I fear that soon my time will end. Life’s too short–I know my friend”. …The album is a good one - worth buying if you are into older rock bands”
