Synopsis

Amazon.com
The Marvelous 3 is a band with an urbane name and a brand of pop-rock to match. Lead singer and guitarist Butch Walker often sings suspended notes in a timbre resonating heavily with nasal Bowie-ness. Drummer Slug and bassist Jayce follow suit with riffs that stop just short of grungy aggression, tempered with a polished reserve. Sound like the perfect Brit band? You'd say yes when you hear how Walker rounds out his words with proper British diction. But this trio from Atlanta would have you fooled. Maybe they're poseurs? Who cares. With lyrics cheekier than Ben Folds's and hooks far more memorable than Third Eye Blind's or Matchbox 20's, their songs are refreshingly structured and predictable in a way that is wholeheartedly gratifying. A combination of '90s noisy guitar rock, '80s pacing, and '70s glam, Hey! is unapologetically radio-ready and a hell of a lot of fun. --Beth Bessmer

CD Reviews

Great harmonies and excellent vocals

"The songs all have their own twist about them. I have gone through every song, and loved them all. I get a new favorite every month. The lyrics were greatly written and the whole album was produced to the fullest."
Putting the fun back in rock n'roll

"Much like getting a good grade on a test you didn't study for, or finding a four-leaf clover, listening to Marvelous 3 is a pleasant surprise. The music isn't incredibly intense nor is it innovative, but what it lacks in innovation it more than makes us for in jump-up-and-down fun. Songs like "You're So Yesterday", "Freak of the Week", "Write It On Your Hand" and "Vampires in Love" are good old fashioned power pop gems that conjure up memories of Weezer minus their geekiness. Hey Album is an energetic twelve song romp through bad relationships, yet the stories are told with surprising peppiness and ingenuity. The band brings forth one of the most energetic, fun live shows you'll ever see, and if you're looking for something not so heavy and dreary, Hey Album just might be the peppy tunes you're looking for."
