GOT TO TELL THE WORLD is now available at CDBaby, Screaming Mimes - Got to Tell the World, Amazon

FROM M. BREEN/CITYBEAT: "The first time I put on Got to Tell the World, the new album by local Pop/Rock foursome Screaming Mimes, and cued up the first track, “You’re the Kind of Girl,” I listened for about a minute then had to run outside to pay my parking meter. Walking back to the office, I found myself already singing the chorus hook in my head, totally unconsciously. That’s a sign of great songwriting, showing singer/guitarist David Storm’s intuitive grasp of what makes an instantly memorable Pop melody. World (the band’s third LP) is, start to finish, loaded with these kinds of ear-candy hooks. If you don’t have a handful of these melodies in your head after listening to the album once, you should see an otologist. The band can lean toward a “Soft Rock” side at times — the tune “Open” could have made Toto a million dollars — but the sturdy songcraft still shines through. The tracks that feature a strong, upbeat groove seem to work best: “Motion” and “Beating Like a Drum” (among others) infuse Ska rhythms, sounding a bit like The Samples. “The Saddest Girl in the World” has an anthemic quality and Third Eye Blindish jaunt, while the “hidden track,” “It’s Not Over,” gives the band a chance to show off their musicianship as they go nuts during a 10-minute jam. The Mimes show versatility on World and, despite a few down moments, it’s the sort of album you can put on and know that your mood and spirit will be lifted."
