A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

Some silly brotherly jabbing in "Alien Clones" when Alex talks about being mad at Nat and wishes that aliens would take his brother away and feed him spiders and snakes. In one song, Nat calls a girl "a crazy chick."

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Obvious tie-in to the Nickelodeon TV series, and Nickelodeon is using a lot of on-air promotional time to push the band and the album.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that tweens will be hankering to hear this highly anticipated -- and squeaky-clean -- album from the stars of Nickelodeon's show of the same name.

What's the story?

Nat and Alex Wolff are real-life brothers who play brothers -- and music -- on the TV series The Naked Brothers Band. Their self-titled debut album, THE NAKED BROTHERS BAND, is a lot like their TV show: slightly rocking and always rollicking, with a light sprinkling of message and mush, and a big dose of sibling silliness. Most of the music and lyrics were written by Nat (Alex contributed some), who has a keen sense for catchy melodies while making the most of an awkwardly changing adolescent voice.

Is it any good?

The lyrics are clean, though some can be kind of lame and frequently nonsensical ("If That's Not Love"), but they're mostly lost behind the music anyway. The boys play all of the music on the album, which was produced and arranged by their real-life dad Michael Wolff (who, incidentally, plays their musically challenged dad on TV).

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how the Naked Brothers has become a brand name. How does having a TV movie, TV series, and a CD help boost their popularity? Do they all feed off each other? Families can also talk about other family-based singers and musicians who found fame, such as the Jackson 5 and Hanson. How did their early successes affect them later in life? Also, what would be good -- or bad -- about working on a television series with your family and close friends? Kids, would it make you feel safe or irritated to have your siblings and parents surrounding you all the time?
