Product Notes

Singer-Songwriter-multi-instrumentalist John Akin's second album with 'The Naked Pilgrims'. It's been almost ten years, graduate school, a couple of albums of instrumental music and a couple of dead-end day jobs since The Naked Pilgrim's first album, 'Three Chord Songs'... With 'Five Years in New York', John and The Naked Pilgrims may just have reached a new level of quirky-guitar-driven-pop/rock transcendence, and even if they didn't, it's still a memorable and ambitious CD... The album starts off on a funky, rollicking note with 'East Side Story'. Then on to the upbeat second track, 'Gotta Have', an outrageous yet honest anthem of teen peer-pressure in our sex-obsessed society. Other highlights: 'Simple', a straightforward yet heartfelt love song; 'In The Morning', a melodic yet risqué tale of falling in love with the girl next door after she's all 'grown up'; 'Mary Says', a perky rocker about vicariously living through the radio; the wistful, acoustic 'Wait' and 'Lusting After People on the Subway', which is about, well, ...the perils of lusting after people on the subway...
