Review:

Celebrating twenty-five years of performing and recording for children and families, award-winning husband-wife duo David & Jenny Heitler-Klevans, better known as Two of a Kind, are back with their ninth CD. We're All In This Together compiles twelve original tunes, one cover and one story into a musically diverse and fully sing-able album. David & Jenny share vocals, and play a wide range of stringed instruments and percussion. A large cast of guest musicians transform their intimate sound into full band arrangements.

The opening title track calls for unity and diversity, while embracing New Orleans-style, horn infused rock, and a rapped refrain, "Treehugger" declares their love of nature, "I Wanna Be a Superhero" is light-Metal declaration of favorite comic book super powers, and all the positive things that could be done with them. Highlights include "Wild and Free" a contemplative view of the joys of being in the great outdoors and "Even When No One's Watching," which commends and encourages honor and honesty. And sounds, from simple noises to complex musical arrangements are playfully immortalized in "Sing! Bang! Boom! It's Symphony."

Under the banner theme of "together, we can do this," Two of a Kind delivers strong messages about the environment, diversity, self-confidence, and honorable behavior; exemplary character-building advice for young listeners and their caretakers.
