Friday Favorite: The Perfect Quirk album

perfect quirk(Disclaimer: I received a promotional copy of this album for review.)

Described as his “quirkiest album yet” Secret Agent 23 Skidoo’s latest album, The Perfect Quirk, is a family hip-hop album perfect for tweens. The feel-good, danceable mix of songs will appeal to kids and parents who are looking for good music packed with positive messages for kids (especially those not yet ready to embrace mainstream hip hop and rap music).

These tracks are all about familiar “kid” experiences, from imaginary friends and pillow fights to more serious issues like TV addiction. The song “Unwind” is one of my favorites, evoking memories of carefree summers spent with friends, exploring nature (“sky got more colors than a bug’s eye”) and playing games. Several tunes, “Pointed Back” and “Guess What” have lessons about making mistakes and being proud of yourself. This is an album worth checking out.
