Bad Mood Mom

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Amy Barkat
Jamie Broza's official arrival on the kids' music scene seems inevitable. Having written songs for Sesame Street and orchestrated music for The Berenstain Bears, plus being the father of three kids under the age of nine, it's easy to see Broza's inspiration for such an energetic project. Bad Mood Mom finds this four-time Emmy Award-winning composer delivering a loose concept album that melds kid-friendly Broadway drama with an amalgam of styles. The first track is a '70s-style funkadelic celebratory anthem, "I'm Six," which mines Broza's well-regarded jazz- and funk-tinged chops. Drums and synthesizers propel the fast and frisky "It's Complicated," about the unending ...

Jamie Broza's official arrival on the kids' music scene seems inevitable. Having written songs for Sesame Street and orchestrated music for The Berenstain Bears, plus being the father of three kids under the age of nine, it's easy to see Broza's inspiration for such an energetic project. Bad Mood Mom finds this four-time Emmy Award-winning composer delivering a loose concept album that melds kid-friendly Broadway drama with an amalgam of styles. The first track is a '70s-style funkadelic celebratory anthem, "I'm Six," which mines Broza's well-regarded jazz- and funk-tinged chops. Drums and synthesizers propel the fast and frisky "It's Complicated," about the unending responsibilities of a seven-year-old, from keeping his room clean to taking piano lessons. The title track tells the oft-told tale of a stressed-out mom who is usually "as cool as they come," but given a toddler beating on pots and pans and a generally chaotic household, it's understandable that she would lose it! Perhaps the strongest track,"I'm Terrible," is set to a tango that will amuse parents rearing their own monster, er, toddler going through the terrible twos: "Finally I'm the boss of all I see, / finally I can say what I want when I want it, / and people must listen to me / or I'll scream." The CD features a ten-page booklet illustrated by Laura Cornell, the renowned illustrator best known for her work on Jamie Lee Curtis's best selling books. Curtis and Stan and Jan Berenstain are in fact fans of Broza's. And who could blame them? This is a buoyant disc that even Bad Mood Moms and cranky Little Sisters can appreciate.

    Sweet and funny . . .

    Our seven-year-old has chosen Bad Mood Mom as his newest favorite going-to-bed CD, and we find ourselves sitting and listening even after he has fallen asleep. The songs are alternately raucous, hilarious, and occasionally poignant. Broza clearly "gets" both sides of the family coin, and views parents, as well as their kids, with compassion and humor.

    Great fun!

    I thought this CD was fantastic when I first heard it and sent a copy to my six-year-old niece. She loves it, plays it constantly, and, as she wrote to me, she dances to it every night! Would highly recommend it for the under-eights on your gift list or in your heart.

    Bad Mood Mom

    Sure, the music is catchy and lyrics are funny, but the real reason to put this at the top of the family car CD rotation is that after a few listens you will feel better about yourself as a parent, your kids will feel better about themselves, and you'll all be singing along to the chorus of "Are We There Yet?" (my favorite). As a bonus, you can throw away the whole shelf of parenting books; this album has songs for and about all ages (OK, ages 1 to 8 particularly), with devastatingly precise portrayals of each age. "I Am Five" and "I'm Six", for example, are completely different songs, but just from the titles alone you can spot the crucial distinction, the confident use of a contraction by the six year old. Now go and listen to the songs. The album ends with a promise that "we'll have to finish the story some other time". I can't wait.

(my favorite). In a way, this album is worth a whole shelf of books on parenting; it has songs for and about all ages (OK, ages 1 to 8 particularly), with devastatingly precise portrayals of each age. "I Am Five" and "I'm Six", for example, are completely different songs, but just from the titles alone you can spot the crucial distinction, the confident use of a contraction by the six year old. Now go and listen to the songs. The last song on the album closes with a promise "to finish the story some other time". I can't wait.
