AllMusic Review by

The album’s title and design (which includes liner notes that one can color in) might make it seem as though Cinematic Sunrise’s debut EP is designed for children, while in truth A COLORING STORYBOOK AND A LONG-PLAYING RECORD is just a dose of straightforward rock. Fronted by Craig Owens, the vocalist from Chiodos, Cinematic Sunrise trade in Chiodos’ post-hardcore tendencies for a more melodic, pop-rock sound. On these piano and guitar-led tunes, Owens’s tenor soars on sweeping, majestic choruses, so that songs like “Pulling a Piano from a Pond” and “The Wordless” should welcome listeners of mainstream pop-rock.
