This indie debut from Oregon-based Henry's Child is a strong effort from beginning to end; if it has a fault, it's that there's almost too much material. Good songwriting and the vocalist's considerable skills are Mumbles & Screams' major strengths, making up for weak production that muddies the guitars and occasionally makes the drums sound like cardboard boxes. There's a nice mix of hard-edged, up-tempo rock with progressive tinges, and slower ballads. The atmospheric guitar-based opening of "Failure", followed by a more aggressive edge as the song kicks into full swing, is a good indication of the material on this album. If you've never heard of Henry's Child, don't worry. You will. -- Genevieve Williams

"Many a time I've gone to see Henrys Child at the local bar, waiting to get in because they were an AWESOME band to see live!! When they finally released "Mumbles and Screams" I had to grab a copy! It brought back so many memories. The only problem with them being on a local label is that it seemed "underproduced". Jeffs' drums were too quiet and it didn't feel like it had all the energy it could have been. But without a doubt I highly recommend this cd. If your on the fence about buying, believe me, you deserve to have a copy. As a devoted fan, you won't be disappointed!!"
