That's a wrap

"Marcy Playground: straight out of New York and into the rock scene. They made a ripple in pop and rock music with their surprise hit "Sex and Candy" and slightly successful "St. Joe on the Schoolbus" off their debut self-titled debut. Now the trio is back and in full force. Not only is this eclectic sophomore album catchy, but it also includes a hidden meaning. If you look hard enough, John Wozniak has made this his opus of 90's rock. Call it a decade review. Look at some examples of this: Take for instance the first single off of "Shapeshifter"--"It's Saturday". It shows the catchy pop song, while the offbeat "Pigeon Farm" suggests a hint of frat rock flippancy in care of Dave Matthews. The Pavement-esqueness of "Wave-Motion Gun" and the folksie "America" show the differences in Wozniaks musical home of the "Loser" decade. MP also takes the trademark riffs of the Smashing Pumpkins and exerts them on "When the Lights Go Out". The brilliantly collected works the boys of Marcy Playground have put together keeps the pop scene moving and leaves the radiation silent residue of a time capsule. Bravo, let the music roll Wozniak."
Superb! Amazing! Unbelievable!

"MP are amazing. Their first CD was awesome and "Shapeshifter" is at least as good, possibly better. This is the first time in my life that I got two CD's of the same band and absolutely love every song on both of them! I cannot stop listening to them. Pretty much the same reaction from most of the people I know. If you liked the first album don't walk - run to the store now and get "Shapeshifter"! I'm not gonna repeat what other reviewers have already said. MP is the best live band I've ever seen and if they're playing near you definitely check them out. They hit the notes perfectly every time and John really does have an awesome voice. Also, as one industry exec said, "they're the hardest working band I've ever been around". They really work on being good unlike many other bands and it really shows. In their records and in concert."
