Album Notes
About Time's original music merges syncopated rhythms and a combination of funk, jazz, blues and rock. Over five years of writing, revising and playing out, they have created their own unique blend of those styles. Their first album, "I Don't Think I Belong Here," represents the culmination of that process. The result is a sound built on a foundation of intricate funk and jazz percussion, rhythmic keyboards and dominant bass lines, with catchy sax hooks, crazy harmonica solos and soulful lead vocals layered on top. The recent additions of guitar and background vocals to About Time's line-up add the finishing touches to their sound--and this album!

Songs on the album range from the poppy, upbeat rhythms in "Capstone Thought", to the edgy, harder songs like "Angry Red", "Bad Guy" and "3 am Friend", to the slow and soulful "Heart Strings". Also, "Heart Strings" is a collaboration of 3 generations of John's family (as well as the rest of the band). John's Mom, Ann Marie Brien, wrote the lyrics, while John's son Connor wrote and plays the bass line!

"You're Gonna Go Down" is a live version from the Skinny Pancake in Burlington, Vermont, and gives a good indication of what you'll experience at an About Time show. It also gives a good indication of the musical talent brought together in this band, with each musician getting their own solo section.

While "The Same Old Past" is the most jazz-inspired song on the album, "Rose Colored Glasses" is maybe the most energetic and always gets the crowd going! "Back on Track" often turns into a long jam session and gets the audience bouncing. "Stir the Pot"'s long piano intro starts off with a classical feel to it, but turns into a pretty exciting song with a fun sax solo.

Finally, the title song for the album, "I Don't Think I Belong Here" has a bit of everything, with complex piano chords, a dual sax and harmonica hook, a funky guitar solo, interesting vocal harmonies during the bridge, and constantly-changing and driving bass lines.
