Un-Apologetically Worth a Second Listen

It's the same story, second verse--a remix if you will: here comes a fledgling band, super talented, super driven. They experience modest success (win a battle of the bands, receive good reviews from performances at music festival gigs), some disappointment (where do we go from here?). Time passes on, music is being created in the meantime but their career is in a holding pattern. And just when they sense they're approaching a break-through and can almost taste the cup, they're forced to swallow the bitterness of rejection. Every last door has been shut on them and now they're at the end of their rope. Do they throw in the towel or push on? Does this all end before it even gets to begin? Thankfully for the music world, we know how this story ends: Fans rally around the group. The suits don't know it but the people can feel it. The talent is inescapable and the music undeniable. Band scores a hit. And the rest is history. Or is it? Take a second listen. If you're willing to engage the music from beginning to end, you'll realize there's a lot more to OneRepublic than just the blessing child of a hip hop guru in nodded approval. Their debut album, "Dreaming Out Loud" is a labor of love borne from sweat, tears, turmoil and beautiful accidents. The listener is drawn in immediately with the opening track, "Say (All I Need)". As the album progresses, the sounds remain tight even as the genres bend. Is it rock? Is it pop? Is it alternative? Brit-Rock? Is that a dash of hip hop? Simply put, it is music paying homage to music. Structurally, there's an on-going fluidity and consistency as the album isn't built around a single track even as we do find the phenomenon number. "Apologize" is an artful, mid-tempo ballad boasting searing highs and a chillingly addictive beat. Here in its album version form, the track is woven nicely into the framework and context of "Dreaming Out Loud". It's less Tim Mosley, more cello from Brent Kutzle and greater command from lead singer and frontman, Ryan Tedder. And just when the mood of the album feels overly somber, introspective and burdensome, the album takes a deep breath with light and swift, "Won't Stop." The album for all intensive purposes ends with a stripped down, "Come Home" but the bonus selections are still a welcome. One of the greatest strengths of OneRepublic is their earnestness and approach toward their craft. Even as they've uncovered the formula of their trademark hook that could yield the most success, they remain true to the voice they've discovered in the creative process. The songs emote beyond composition and lyric. They speak intimately and in it always contains a small message of hope in the midst of quiet despair. It is Tedder's vision that people not only hear the music but feel it. How OneRepublic Nation responds lies solely on the individual listener. But one thing is for sure: the people have spoken and OneRepublic is here to stay. As long as the band remains humble and never lets up in creating music that is both meaningful as it is intriguing, they are sure to maintain an intensely steadfast and loyal following for years to come.

OneRepublic's messages shine through on 'Dreaming Out Loud'

MySpace phenoms OneRepublic give it their all on their Interscope release ‘Dreaming Out Loud.’ The LA-based band, which was introduced to the general public by Timbaland through his remix of the band’s hit single “Apologize,” succeeds in proving they are much more than a novelty act. OneRepublic kick off their debut major release with the U2-sounding “Say (All I Need),” which boasts a big-budget production value and lead singer Ryan Tedder displays his falsetto better than anyone in recent memory. The most emotional song on ‘Loud’ is without question “Come Home,” as Tedder tells the story of relationships, focusing on one between himself and the one he loves. But the underlying message is transferable to almost any situation in which the struggle for love to win the battle is present. Besides the two versions of “Apologize,” which are lyrical and production masterpieces, ‘Loud’ includes a slew of worthy follow-up singles like “All We Are,” “Prodigal,” “Mercy,” and most notably second single “Stop & Stare.” What makes these tracks rise above other bands’ works are without question the lyrics. Almost anyone who has an alright voice and can play piano can produce something that sounds good, but if the lyrics don’t mesh, the result is something underwhelming. OneRepublic’s promotion of solid values and ability to focus on positive subjects help them connect with the listener and sets them apart from other bands that are big at the moment. OneRepublic show an edgier side in tracks like the up-tempo “Tyrant“ and the riotous “Someone to Save You,” but they still retain the positive message present in the album’s previous tracks. In “You,” Tedder sings of saving his friend and takes part in a rousing, soulful final chorus. The lowest point on ‘Loud’ is “Won’t Stop,” and that’s only because it is boring. Another lackluster song is “Goodbye Apathy,” which includes a very repetitive chorus. Needless to say, OneRepublic easily prove they are not just “The Fray of 2007” on ‘Dreaming Out Loud.’ Their ability to offer both up-tempo radio anthems and heartfelt, moving ballads put them on an elite playing field. One they should be around to play on for years to come.


Listen everyone, It's simple. These guys have been at this for years. First and foremost, I've been a fan of the music for a few years now. Tedder and gang really know how to put together an album. I gave it 5 stars because I think it will be a classic album (just like any coldplay, radiohead, u2, etc album). I'm the lead vocalist/pianist/guitarist for my band "THE NEED" (on Delfi Music Group / Universal) I'm gonna give you a breakdown on the songs as I see them: SAY - Great production value... crescendo through the whole song (very epic). MERCY - Shows more of a rock side from 1R. Uplifting for sure. STOP AND STARE - Been a favored song of mine for a year. Very well arranged and produced... great hook/chorus. APOLOGIZE - Great first single. Nuff said. GOODBYE, APATHY - Big sound. arranged very well. ALL FALL DOWN - Love it. Fav on album right now. Cello line is perfect - picks up in 2nd verse. Great song. TYRANT - Well written. great song (bridge breakdown is great). Radioheadesque. PRODIGAL - Emotional. Moving. WONT STOP - Nice change of pace... at a great time to lighten the mood. ALL WE ARE - Very Big, Moving, Emotional. SOMEONE TO SAVE YOU - Added to the list of great songs off of this freshmen release from 1R. COME HOME - Passionate. Moving. OVERALL - I know I used the same words over and over again, but there is a theme in their music/this album. BIG. POWERFUL. MOVING. EMOTIONAL. It leaves the listener wondering what's next? This band isn't going anywhere. I'm not saying I'm a music guru, however I do know music. BOTTOM LINE - Buy the album. It's worth it. All ages.

Featuring the anthemic songwriting of Ryan Tedder, OneRepublic rose to prominence in 2007, when "Apologize" began its reign as the most popular digital download in American history. Although the song proved to be a quick success, OneRepublic had spent five years touring the musical minor leagues before its release, with Tedder splitting his time between the band's work and production gigs for other artists. Tedder and Zach Filkins formed the band in 2002 and relocated to Los Angeles shortly thereafter,...
