This giveaway is now closed, with a winner chosen.
I’m a fan of Five for Fighting and John Ondrasik, so I was looking forward to hearing the new stuff.
So – what are my impressions? As a whole, very positive. Catchy stuff that kind of gets into your head and you want to sing along (an example is Slice for that.) Tuesday sort of reminds me (and this is a compliment, so if you’re like my husband, hush!) of a mixed song of Barry Manilow and Neil Diamond. It has that feel of a song that might not be that popular now, but endures for years to come. It’s just lovely. The melodies through the album really feel good. I didn’t love Above the Timberline – but I can’t quite put my finger on why. I think it has to do with the falsetto used. Transfer is such a rich song, I loved that one – I really want you to take a listen to that one. The album as a whole is one you should buy. I love it, and will add all the songs (except Above the Timberline) to my iPod.
