Album Notes
Go across the universe and back with Eric Herman on his fifth CD of cool tunes for kids and families. What a Ride! is an amazing musical journey through childhood and beyond that includes several catchy earworms ("Heartbeat", "Stink Bug", "Come Play"), interactive fun tracks ("Ants in Your Pants #99", "How to Move a Monster") and even songs that explore the meaning and size of life, the universe and everything ("What a Ride", "How Big", "Extraordinary").

Herman, best known for his hit video for "The Elephant Song" (over 6 million views on YouTube), branches out into a lot of new musical territory on What a Ride!, and enlists the help of several kindie rock friends, including Gwendolyn Sanford of Gwendolyn and the Good Time Gang, Robbi K, Chris Wiser of Sugar Free Allstars, Eric Ode, David Tobocman, Glenn Colton, Tito Uquillas of The Hipwaders and Mr. Billy.

To quote the title track... take a while to laugh and smile and say, hey, What a Ride!

Victoria, Mummy's Product Reviews

One great CD!
Full of catchy pop melodies and fun lyrics Eric Herman's 'What a Ride' is one great CD. It will appeal to older and younger kids alike as well as adults. The lyrics are relatable for the whole family and elementary school age kids will certainly find this CD especially appealing. If you are looking for a CD that won't drive you insane and still keep your kids happy then you need to give 'What a Ride' a test drive.

Pop-rock ditties crafted to make kids giggle
This disc's brimming with pop-rock ditties crafted to make kids giggle.

A ride worth taking!
The good thing about Herman's music is that it's music you can appreciate and actually enjoy listening to, while pleasing your kids at the same time. The lyrics are fun and heartwarming for older kids and especially parents, who can relate to a lint-covered cheeseball in the carseat or a child begging you to "Come Play" at 2 o'clock in the morning. Bottom line: What a Ride is a ride worth taking.

A super-fun album with catchy lyrics and danceable tunes!
Eric Herman has done it again - he's released another super-fun album with catchy song lyrics and danceable tunes. These songs are super silly and make my kids' noses scrunch up in laughter... Herman's heartfelt lyrics never fail to strike a chord in Mom's heart, as well.

Eric Herman delivers a CD of wit and pop!
Eric Herman delivers a CD of wit and pop. What a Ride zooms around playfully through a universe of kid-centric topics with memory-sticking poetry and a pop-rock beat.

Pleasing pop melodies, funny and engaging lyrics and a clean, crisp production.
Eric Herman has consistently delivered pleasing pop melodies, funny and engaging lyrics, and a clean, crisp production that is easy on young ears. His latest CD, What A Ride, continues that winning formula with 11 amazing new tracks. Imaginative songs like "Time Machine," "Carseat Snack," and "How To Move A Monster," are the kind that kids just eat up. I've heard a lot of good children's music over the years, but I can't think of any other artist who has such instant appeal to the elementary school age crowd as Eric does.

Jenna Glatzer

What an album! Whimsical, engaging, often funny songs.
What an album! This has become an overnight sensation with my 2-year-old. Thing is, you can't be sad while listening to an Eric Herman CD. They're all these whimsical, engaging, often funny songs. I catch myself listening to his albums in the car even when my daughter isn't with me. It's upbeat music that's not cloying or oversimplified.

Brittanie, KidDesktop

Catchy and fun... My kids love the CD!
Whereas some kids' music makes me want to drive nails through my eardrums, Eric's music is catchy and fun without being obnoxiously repetitive or mind-numbing. Even more important, though, my kids love the CD!

Jeff, Out With the Kids

Groovy, fun and extremely easy on the ears.
There are some terrific songs on "What a Ride". Herman moves with ease between full blown danceable guitar rock and sweet power ballads (not the cheesy 80's kind), all while making sure that the listener is smiling and singing along. "What a Ride" reminds me of the best music Blues Traveler ever released - groovy, fun and extremely easy on the ears.


Something for everyone!
Silliness, creative lyrics, and guitar-that's what you get with Eric Herman and the Invisible Band.
While I enjoy listening carefully to the songs and picking up the subtle (and not-so-subtle) jokes, my four-year-old son, Ivan, loves the rocking beats and sing-along choruses. Something for everyone!
