Album Review

Stuck in a netherworld of near-hits, Gavin DeGraw decided it was time to make a bold move for his fifth album, broadening his soul-inflected rock on Make a Move. The change is apparent from the start, when the lead single "Best I Ever Had" stomps to a beat borrowed from folk-rockers the Lumineers and the title track struts like Maroon 5.
