Editors’ Notes

The third album by pop-reggae band Iration is their first without co-frontman Kai Rediske, who left the band in early 2013. With guitarist Micah Pueschel handling all the lead vocals, Automatic retains the fresh melodic approach for which the Hawaii-bred, California-based band is known, especially on sunny tracks like "Go That Road" and "This Old Song." Cage The Elephant guitarist Lincoln Parish guests and co-produces three tracks, including the standout "Show Me," which eschews the band's reggae lilt in favor of an amiable pop-rock sound.

Customer Reviews

What a let down....

With all the hype surrounding the release of this album, from the help of Lincoln Parish (of Cage The Elephant), the sshopping the CD around to major record labels, to the nearly 4 year wait, I was expecting something groundbreaking. Something that really was going to seperate these guys from the pack and establish themselves for years to come. Sadly this album is not it.

The whole album is just monotone & well honestly.....boring. Practically every song has the same tempo and sound, and when they do attempt to pick things up a bit, the song ends up sounding completely out of place on the album.

And as for the departure of Kai......you can definitely feel it. Micah has a great voice, but he's limited in his tonal range and without that play off between the two singers Micah's vocals become very lethargic song after song.

Overall this album is a big disappointment for me. For all it's hype it fell severely short of what this band set out to do and ultimately took a big step backwards.

Get this album

The supposed hard core connoisseur that said its like Saudi buying oil from Switzerland has no idea what he's talking about. Really good roots reggae comes out of the US. SOJA, jboog, gonzo, tribal seeds... And many many more. Just because that dude listens to Bob Marley and sublime he thinks he's a hardcore reggae fan... Buy this album it's another killer drop from iration yea it's different. The reason for it being different is because iration wanted to show the wide variation of music styles they can play.

To me they have done killer on every album including this album. Then again everyone's into their own thing... Buy this album and make your own choice

Amazing album!

Despite what some people say about it being a letdown , it
Certainly is not! I think the album is perfect as it is, and the only thing constant about true musicians is change. It's a great thing how bands like iration come to respect more than their own type of music and incorporate that in their own. 5 stars for iration , and for critics , try playing some music on your own, you'll appreciate more types

Although all members originally hail from Hawaii, the reggae-rock group Iration launched their career in Isla Vista, CA, a college town near Santa Barbara. With their laid-back sound and pop melodies, the band was an instant hit on the California college circuit. In 2006, their growing fan base got a chance to bring a little Iration back to the dorm when the band released their New Roots EP. The next year saw them release their debut album, No Time for Rest, which featured a guest shot from reggae...
