Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Chad Van Gaalen has given us two of the best songs of the year - Willow Tree and Molten Light (check out the hilarious animated video to the latter) - and now one of the best albums.
The Canadian, not unlike Sufjan Stevens, pays no heed to musical conventions; meaning that you can be listening to a sparse banjo-led number before an onslaught of electronic noodlings or rock guitars.
This kind of scattergun approach to songwriting can prove extremely tiresome unless done well, and Van Gaalen pulls it off with ease.
Essentially, 'Soft Airplane' is really just a highly melodic pop album that goes off at some bizarre, but never less than captivating, tangents. It's from the leftfield but has definite mainstream potential.
All in all, great fun and an absolute must for those 2008 Christmas lists.

I adore this album. So many gems, lyrically and musically. It was one of those pieces of work that, when I heard it, reassured me that I am actually on the right planet. The collection can be folksy, grungy, at times poppy, but always disturbed. From the quirky updraft of 'Willow Tree', through 'Cries of the Dead', the beat-up ectasy of 'Phantom Anthills' (what on earth is that about?) to the troubling and glorious 'Rabid Bits Of Time'. Not a foot wrong.

Sweet Sweet Death, Love, and Life. 5 Oct. 2008
By Julia Voice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I cannot begin to tell you how in love I am. Chad VanGaalen is an absolute brilliant song writter/musician! He gives me goose bumps everytime I hear him sing! I think he has bumped The Shins off the top of my top 5 list. You MUST buy this CD, and also watch his amazing self drawn music videos.

Bones of Man and Old Man + The Sea 15 Jun. 2014
By grove123 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Album is growing on me. Is not Diaper Island, but I may like better than Infiniheart. Much like Skelliconnection it's a good album overall, but has some real gems that stand out, like Bones of Man and Old Man + The Sea.
Amazingly Epic 3 April 2009
By Delilah St. Clare - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I heard about Chad Vangaalen from a LIVE 105 radio DJ in San Francisco. She listed "Willow Tree" as her #1 song of 2008. I was intrigued by this decision so I checked him out - probably one of the best decisions of my life. I bought Soft Airplanes almost immediately after hearing Willow Tree for the first time. I'm a huge fan of banjo so it was love at first listen. I love his sound and mixture of electronic beats and sounds with guitar. Absolutely love it! I just caught him in concert as well. Beyond fabulous show - he's quite a terrible storyteller but I'll blame the alcohol for that. But you should really pick up this album. You can get all 3 of his CDs for next to nothing if you buy used.
Good Stuff 20 Aug. 2014

I bought this because Pandora offered up TMNT Mask which rapidly grew on me. There are a number of other great tracks including Bones of Man which, to me, is reminiscent of Neil Young (a favorite of mine.) I recommend you preview all the tracks as much as you can to hear the wide variety on this record. Chad's work encompasses a number of styles and is quite surprisingly varied.
Meaningful and musical. 19 April 2013
By Joel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is one of those albums that you can listen to over and over and never get tired of it. All the songs are really original, and the lyrics are really artistic and paint a really awesome picture in your head. They are also symbolic and you can analyze the underlying meaning of them, which is rare in most of today's music
