Album Review

Falling into the emo ranks somewhere near the All-American Rejects, Los Angeles-based the City Drive sounds like a direct product of the warm California sun, even if most of the band is made up of non-West Coast natives. The band's freshman offering is exactly what its title, Always Moving Never Stopping, suggests. It drives with the attitude and energy of a pop-punk band, but with the rock sensibilities of a group like Weezer. They hardly let the fun subside, even during the occasional delving into gentler terrain. Songs of this nature, like "Saints" and "Light Years," the latter a tender piano-spiked number, are just as passionately delivered due to lead singer Danny Smith's strong presence. Their sound may be built around Smith, but as the band bops forward from the energetic opener "Defeated" — with sweet melodies, layered vocals and the occasional keys in tow — all three members are responsible for the City Drive's overall exuberance. After all, the vocals are probably one of the album's strongest parts; though solid on their own, when layered they give the band a much fuller sound. Even "Over and Done" and "Give Up Love" rock out quite convincingly with brisk rhythms and occasional hints of latter-day Green Day. And while songs start to run into one another at one point, the band sounds so damn enthusiastic about everything — from the exuberant bounce-step of "Bring Me Everything" to the playful sway of "Overready" — it's hard to care after awhile as you're singing and tapping along.

ohemmgee!

this band rocks! i met them at a few their concerts..they are so so nice.. they sound like green day meets boys like girls. their lyrics are awesome and always have an awesome performance.

Several Decent Tracks

The City Drive's "Always Moving Never Stopping" is fun, vibrant, tongue-in-cheek and romantic pop rock with a fairly decent sound. Some tracks that stand out are "Runner", "Nightfalling", and "Light Years," but my favorite track has to be the short and sweet track "Bumblebee," wherein lead singer Danny Smith lovingly tells me (or some girl who has behaved like me in taking her frustrations out on her man), "Baby...don't be such a BABY." The drawback in this sound is that it will be very hard for the band to evolve their music and keep fans interested. I'm as optimistic as their music is.

The City Drive=Sunshine! (and Ponies!)

This album is ridiculously awesome! Everyone needs to buy it! All of yous! It's great!

Leaving his native Ontario with dreams of sunny skies, palm trees, and being in a rock band, vocalist/guitarist/pianist Danny Smith set off to Los Angeles in 2002, stopping in Memphis along the way to record some early demos with Lisa Loeb. Upon making it to California, Smith met up with another L.A. transplant, Long Island-born bassist/vocalist Scott Waldman, who had relocated to the area in 2003 following his graduation from the University of Michigan. The final piece of the puzzle was California...
