Album Review

While the Summer Set's full-length debut, Love Like This, was firmly entrenched in happy-go-lucky young love, its follow-up, Everything’s Fine, finds the bandmembers wiser in matters of the heart and more mature in their musicianship. The charm that previously pulled in listeners is there, but Everything’s Fine sets aside most of the saccharine-laden hooks in place of a more laid-back, breezy vibe, positioning the Summer Set to reach more pop-minded audiences while still pleasing loyal fans. This is bolstered by producer John Fields, whose résumé ranges from P!nk to Jimmy Eat World, who captures the quintet with a new sense of focus and universality. Leadoff track “About a Girl,” with gentle guitar work bringing to mind Goo Goo Dolls’ hit “Iris,” sets the mood for the record both sonically and thematically, finding the Summer Set delivering their newly grown-up emo-pop as they navigate the ups and downs of dating and relationships. Pondering the carefree joy of love, “Thick as Thieves,” co-written by Matchbox Twenty multi-instrumentalist Paul Doucette, takes the band to the beach, channeling Jack Johnson with its ukulele and handclap-driven melody. And just as the music has grown, so too have frontman Brian Logan Dales’ vocals — the uplifting, spare “Don’t Let Me Go” shows he has the chops and appeal of an alt-pop favorite like Train singer Patrick Monahan. If it sounds like the band has lost its edge, fret not: tracks like “Must Be the Music,” with its rapid-fire lyrics about getting caught up in the craziness of a party, recall the rowdiness of their debut. While the Summer Set shed some of their emo-pop roots for Everything’s Fine, the growth as songwriters and performers as well as potential for wider recognition shown on their sophomore effort is a worthy exchange.

Customer Reviews

In A Word:

Diversity.
Thats the one thing The Summer Set promised us before releasing "Everything's Fine," and they definitely delivered. The first few Ep's and "Love Like This" were fun, solid records, but it wasn't until the summer set scored THE John Fields as a producer before their real talent could shine. Field's has absolutely pushed this band to their musical limits on "Everything's Fine," and quite frankly it sounds gorgeous. There's soft ballads, synth-infused pop-rock, strait indie rock, even the funky-sounding "Begin Again."

there's really nothing to hate about this album. Old fan's that were only interested in the summer set's 'boy & girl' lyrics and fun atmosphere can still easily relate and love this record. I expect The Summer Set's fan base to at least triple with this record...they deserve it.

Love them omg

I love this album.
I've only listened to the previews for like 2 weeks and I already love this album.
I can't wait to find my gift card and buy it.
Then replay it until my speakers bust.
Everything's fine now that everything's fine is out. :)

Perfect!!

God knows how long i've been waiting for this album, and clearly, it didn't disappoint! I'm so in love with every song. You can tell this band put their heart and soul into every song, and that's so hard to find these days. This album will be on repeat for the rest of the summer (:
