Teddy Geiger, 17 and hugely talented, is going to take some lumps with the release of his debut CD--that's the way it goes when you're a blue-eyed, raven-haired, golden-skinned Adonis-in-training type. Don't let the hottie-haters distract you, though: this is pop music worth listening to, from the John Mayer-meets-Maroon 5-meets-Vanessa Carlton early tracks to later cuts, which bubble with something altogether purer. Geiger, known to the teen-age masses already for his turn on VH1's "In Search of the New Partridge Family" series and for playing a budding rock star on "Love Monkey," a CBS show that flopped weeks prior to this disc's release, sings in a ropey voice that's comfortable just where it is--mid-range and married to the feelings behind it. Which, surprisingly, are frontloaded with honesty and depth. "Thinking Underage," a song that does a neat backflip with the disc's title, is as gorgeous a sulk as has ever come off a major label; "Try Too Hard" is pure, sweet springtime. And Teddy, proving for all the world that the talent gods pick favorites, can play: hear him here on guitar, piano, bass and drums. -Tammy La Gorce

"Meet Teddy Geiger, the talented, model-cute 17 year old singer/songwriter whose debut album is a sure-fire bet to be a huge hit. Fans of James Blunt, Daniel Powter, Daniel Bedingfield and K T Tunstall will identify with this album, especially the fresh-sounding first single "For You I Will (Confidence)"
Second single "These Walls" is a ballad about facing up to life after having your heart broken.
"Cause everybody tries to put some love on the line
And everybody feels a broken heart sometimes
And even when I'm scared I have to try to fly
Sometimes I fall
But I've seen it done before
I got to step outside these walls"
Other good tracks are "Thinking Underage", "Look Where We Are Now" and "Seven Days Without You" (a version of the Avion single, and my favorite track), but there really isn't a bad song on this album.
Watch out for this husky voiced cutie-pie, he's another Geiger you can count on.

"When I downloaded his single on [that music service whose name begins with an "i"], I liked the song and looked forward to the release of the album, thinking it was going to be pretty good. But I didn't expect it to be one of the best albums of 2006 thusfar! One can't help but be impressed by such a solid debut album from a guy still in his teens.
Several songs I fell in love with by the third listen of this album, specifically: "Air Dry", the upbeat "Possibilities", the mellow "Gentlemen", and the lead-off single "For You I Will (Confidence)". Geiger's voice contains the most pleasing elements of both Jonny Lang's raspy growl and Ryan Cabrera's breezy smoothness; and his songwriting and musical style bring to mind a cross between Tyler Hilton and John Mayer. If you like any or all of these artists, Teddy Geiger is right up your alley.
Simply put, this album is straight-ahead, radio-friendly pop-rock with a dash of rootsy funk. It doesn't break any new ground, but it doesn't have to in order to be good. "Underage Thinking" is very good, and if the corporate music machine allows Teddy Geiger to put out a second album (and maybe a third), I have a strong feeling that he's only going to get better."
