Jack's Mannequin is just an amazing band. This c.d. is a great follow up for their 2005 c.d., Everything In Transit. Andrew McMahon, vocalist of Something Corporate, created Jack's Mannequin as a side project. From 2004 to now, their fan base has skyrocketed. Both of their c.d.'s were loved by critics, as well as myself.
I had the great honor to see them preform live at The Mile High Music Festival back in July, and it was amazing. I was nearly front row. While in between songs, their vocalist [Andrew McMahon] cracked jokes at the drunks in the audience, and complimented a beer-servers salesman skills as he went over to the drunken side of the crowd after he pointed it out. They ended the show, by jumping on the piano on the final note. It was an unforgettable experience, to say the least.

I would like to also add that there is a documentary on Andrew McMahon about his struggle with ALL (Acute Lymphatic Leukemia). It will be released on November 3rd, 2009. It is titled Dear Jack. Watch the trailer at Dear Jack.

Suggested Songs: Swim, American Love, and Hammers and Strings.
