Album Notes
Admiral (Alan Grandy, Jeff Harmon, Marky Ray, and Chris Solt) set out to re-interpret songs from the Beatles first British LP 'Please Please Me", inspired by John Lennon's statement that the title track was "my attempt at writing a Roy Orbison song" (Paul McCartney stated later that "George Martin up-tempo-ed it" as the band wen to record it).

The music that the members of Admiral have created on their own (Sputnik, the terrible parade, and Grandy's solo work) has also inspired critical acclaim from no less than Billboard, Melody Maker, Paste Magazine, Alternative Press, Seattle Weekly, Omaha Weekly, Jersey Beat, and Cleveland Plain Dealer, amongst many others:

"...this one ended up in heavy rotation on my iPhone. Worth finding." - Omaha Weekly (Sputnik "Rising")
"Representing poprock at its most buoyant, vibrant, and engaging..." - Jersey Beat (Sputnik "Rising")
"Rising is packed with timeless pop-rock gems..." - (Sputnik "Rising")
"a delicious, harmony-filled pop debut" - Paste Magazine (Sputnik "I, Cosmonaut)
“quite talented songwriting…tightly-wound arrangements and unique melodies suggest The Wedding Present, or the maturity of Workbook-era Bob Mould” - All Music Guide (Sputnik "I, Cosmonaut)
"catchy hooks and shimmering harmonies aplenty" - Cleveland Plain Dealer (Sputnik "I, Cosmonaut)
“a nice sensation” - Melody Maker (Various Artists "El Grande" - original press)
“harmonic, hook-laden, and easy on the ear in the best sense” - Billboard (Various Artists "El Grande" - original press)
"fans of genre-benders will find much to admire in Grandy's repetoire...(his) songs are sweetly thoughtful" - Seattle Weekly (Alan Grandy "acrownostars")
"acrowno'stars cuts as close to the emotional bone as possible" - Alternative Press (Alan Grandy "acrownostars")
