Matt Wade - D-Sides & Demo Tapes | Wednesday, December 7, 2011
Getting off to a rousing start with the incredibly catchy and jaunty "Love Isn't Everything," this pop-rock album bops and bounces along with a certain tuneful gaiety that's both exciting and engaging in equal measure. Matt Wade's exuberant vocals soar straight for the heavens and back with positively infectious go-for-broke aplomb. The classy and snappy arrangements likewise hit the stirring spot, with big ringing guitar riffs, smooth basslines, dynamic piano, and sturdy kickin' drums keeping things lively and harmonic throughout. Bonus props are in order for the smart and reflective songwriting that deftly mines a touching line in bittersweet regret. A very nice and satisfying album.
