Synopsis

Product Description
On their riveting and keenly-anticipated fourth album, Leaving Wonderland... In A Fit of Rage, Marcy Playground return to action in triumphant fashion. Armed with songs born of an intense and turbulent period in his life, MP's main man, singer/guitarist John Wozniak, has fashioned a record that digs deep, taking the listener on an exhilarating and satisfying emotional and musical roller coaster ride. Its creator is justifiably proud of his accomplishment, calling it ''by far the best thing I've ever done. This is the most personal record I've ever made, and I think it's the thing that will connect most with other people.''

As a bonus, copies of the CD will come with a download card for Marcy Playground's last album, ''MP3''.

Marcy has done it again!

"Returning to the spotlight once again is Marcy Playground. Most famous for their self-titled release in 1997, featuring the hit singles "Sex and Candy" and "Sherry Fraser", MP seemed to fade into deeper obscurity with each of their successive albums, Shapeshifter and MP3. While each of these were terrific efforts, they failed to garner the attention of their debut album. Marcy has returned on July 7 with Leaving Wonderland...In a Fit of Rage. I've kept up with Marcy over the past year and a half and I've waited enthusiastically for this album to find its release. Originally, this was to be a solo effort by frontman John Wozniak, featuring his songs with performers such as Daniel Powter (yes, the fellow behind "Bad Day") in his backing band. John decided, though, that this may as well have been a MP release, and thus got the ol' band back together for another go. I'm glad he did--if the previous albums are any indication, then good things are in store for the boys. I've heard many of these songs in various stages of completion through the band's myspace and what I've heard that was catchy as heck. The songwriting and instrumentation were excellent. Aside from their brush with mainstream, MP is one of the best-kept secrets of the 90's. The band are noted for their energetic performances and their polite and down-to-earth interactions with their fans. On this record, John has embraced more of an adult-alternative sort of sound, but it's fitting given his age and life experiences since we've last heard him on a record. He doesn't err, though, in saying that this is his most personal effort. It shows. What results is nothing short of terrific, a touch of personalization that's near-impossible to find in the days of manufactured music. These are songs you'll be hearing on the radio soon enough, especially "Good Times". Please, do yourself a favor and pick up this record. You won't regret it. By the time it comes on the radio, you'll already know all the words."
Great Release From Marcy Playground

"As the saying goes ..... good things come to those who wait. Well, Marcy Playground follows up their excellent release, MP3 with another hit. Leaving Wonderland in a Fit of Rage is consistant with their other releases giving their fans a mature, balanced album. My favorites include: Devil Woman, Star Baby and I Must Have Been Dreaming. Their last release (MP3) was quite heavy. Shades of alt rock echoed through songs like Blood in Alphabet Soup and Hotter Than the Sun. Leaving Wonderland has some heavy songs but this release is a little "tamer" than MP3. My favorite MP release is Shapeshifter. Leaving Wonderland is just as good. Woz has once again penned some poignant, timely tunes for his fans. I'll be honest, when I saw the cover of MP3 I didn't recognize them. With this release they're still in focus and rocking. Keep up the good work guys! I'll look for your next release in a couple of years. In the meantime I'll play Leaving Wonderland to death. Like the next to the last song on Leaving ........THANK YOU."
I thank you from my heart...

"This is a great album. Full of so many catchy little gems. Longtime Marcy Playground fans will love it. "Irene," "Good Times," "Devil Woman," "I Must Have Been Dreaming," "Blackbird," and a re-recording of one of my favorites, "Memphis," are highlights. I am very happy there is a new Marcy Playground album out there for us all to enjoy. I've only played it once and think half of the album are highlights! Thank you John. Great stuff! Time to spin it again."
