Better than THE BEST.

It's that CD that you want to listen to in your car with all your best friends driving to somewhere or nowhere with the windows down and the volume up as high as it can go and nothing else but all your voices screaming together with love and life pouring out of the car and the only thought that you know is that life could not be any better.


This album is one of those that anyone on the beach can listen to. Also, if you are on a long car ride, this album will provide great listening music. Hey, the First Single and Let's Make this Moment a Crime are good songs, but On Your Porch stills my breath away! The melody is great, but the lyrics truly speak to one's heart. For all those cheap skates out there,if you don't want to buy the whole album, which you should not do, buy On Your Porch. You will not be disappointed!

At first I didn't like this band or this CD, but I listened to it a little more and it grew on me. This was basically because the first song I heard was "The First Single," which is cute, but nowhere near as good as the rest of the CD. The lyrics on this album vary from cliche junk to profound words and I always thought that was a quirk. Most of the songs are simple, yet profound. For example, "Tie The Rope" to me, is on the low end of the scale, while "On Your Porch" demonstrates talented songwriting. All together, this album is a good listen, and it's great for the summer and when you're driving around with the windows down. I don't think it offers anything new to the table, but it's still fun, somewhat refreshing, and nice to sing along to. The Snails EP sounds promising and more mature, so I look forward to future efforts from this band. Overall, a thumbs up. Weaker tracks: 4, 10 Stronger tracks: 2, 5, 7, 11


Formed: 2001 in Peoria, AZ

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Self-described as a "desert pop" band, the Format materialized around two friends, vocalist Nate Ruess and multi-instrumentalist Sam Means, in the early 2000s. Taking influence from '60s music to craft their own spirited indie pop melodies, the Arizona-based pair were barely in their twenties when they laid down a five-song EP with producer Bob Hoag. Next thing they knew, the first track from that EP -- the aptly titled "The First Single" -- found its way onto local radio and became a minor hometown...
