Product Description

Review

We've heard the "there's no place like home" message before, of course, but never with this degree of tunefulness, mischief and merriment. Child-like wonders never cease from the Rheos. -- Jeff Batemen, The Record

concise, hummable tunes ... among the most immediate compositions the occasionally ambitious-to-the-point-of-alienating Rheos have ever come up with. -- Ben Rayner, Toronto Star

Product Description

Its a concept album based around a childrens story. Anxiously awaited for over two years, the Story of Harmelodia is a delightfully delicious romp the land filled with strange instruments and colourful charactersthe kind that could only spring from the minds of the Rheostatics; Wingophones, the land of Popopolous and the conniving ways of Dr Drumstein!

5.0 out of 5 stars You Couldn't Have Asked for a Better Disc March 3 2000
Format:Audio CD
I got this disc for Xmas and it was a great surprise. I was already a big Rheos fan but once again they have struck out for new musical ground, much as they did with their last collaboration with Kevin Hearn, SONGS INSPIRED BY THE GROUP OF 7. Not only is this a wonderful concept album which tells a story of individuality and artistry, it is packaged in a little hardcover children's book with illustrations by guitarist Martin Tielli, whose artwork graces most of the band's album covers.
Great job, guys. It was great seeing you in concert recently.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Fab This Record. Sept. 26 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The only part of this album I don't like (or should i say is that it gets tiresome) is that the narration gets in the way of the songs at times. All the songs are brilliantly crafted. The only "children's" album I own.
Dave Bidini's story is touching, and also very interesting.
This is one of the best of one of the most underrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars More tasty adventure from those Rheostatics Dec 28 2000
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to imagine someone discovering this review who doesn't already love the Rheostatics - why else would you know about them? -- but if you have any concerns about "Harmelodia", don't worry. It's a sweet and strange children's story, sure, but it's also a solid and rich sonic adventure as only they seem to be doing in this decade. If "Progressive Rock" records from old have worn out their thrill on your shelves, and you'd like all that musical and lyrical creativity with a little more honest emotion and fun holding it together, then come and get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars To The Rockery! Feb. 12 2000
Format:Audio CD
Just fantastic! Children`s story mixed in with a dash of "Lamb lies down on brodway" a pinch of "ogden`s nut gone flake" a little rheos magic and presto "harmelodia". Get the point? Didn`t think so. Anyways,Get it!
