Are We There Yet?

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
A Family Album, the Verve Pipe's first LP for kids, went so well that the group -- aka Brian Vander Ark -- jumped at the chance to record a second one in 2013. Are We There Yet? is cut from the same cloth as A Family Album -- it's another ten-song set of shamelessly exuberant, singalong pop -- but it doesn't feel as if the Verve Pipe is reworking tired ground.

They're clever pop craftsman whose talents extend beyond the mere writing of the song; they can also make a good pop record, layering instruments and effects to give the impression of joyful chaos. Just like they did on A Family Album, the Verve Pipe sound like they're having a blast on Are We There Yet? so it's easy for the whole family to have a good time with this nifty little record.
