I’ve just come upon Gillies Daddy’s Delusions of Grandeur CD on CD Baby. Wow! I mean…wow! I am totally blown away by this album, from Brand New Day, a wonderful single-worthy song with great harmonies and a hook that runs deep, to the beautifully melodic Why God Made Tears (what a sumptuous melody and emotive harmony vocals). I also love the McCartney vibe of Mr. Roosevelt, the bouncy What Could Be Better, and the lovely opener Sleepyhead (just beautiful). As a nod to the Beatlesque sounds of days gone by, Delusions works wonders, but it also stands on its own as a wonderful contemporary record. Bravo! Four stars!

"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..
