Album Review

The sixth studio long-player from the multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter, Something Worth Saving sees Gavin DeGraw treading familiar ground, but with the easy yet cocksure gait of a pop pro. DeGraw's big, soulful, and elastic voice remains his biggest asset, and it helps to elevate some of the album's less inspired numbers, specifically the paint-by-numbers opener/single "She Sets the City on Fire." With that bit of Fun.-aping, romantic comedy trailer bait out of the way, DeGraw is able to flex his songwriting chops a bit, beginning with the sultry "You Make My Heart Sing Louder," a bluesy, midtempo come-hither banger that finds the sweet spot between the club and the ride home. Elsewhere, the subtle electro-folk gem "Kite Like a Girl" invokes late-'70s Paul Simon by way of Ed Sheeran, the bouncy "Anaalee" flirts with classic Motown and soul in a sort of "Come on Eileen" way, and the punchy "How Lucky Can a Man Get" suggests that DeGraw spent his formative years absorbing more than his fair share of classic rock radio — the title track/closer is a genuine lighter ballad. As per usual, DeGraw, like a 21st century Huey Lewis, delivers everything with an amiable, everyman gusto, and it's that penchant for workmanlike listener inclusiveness that ultimately makes Something Worth Saving worth dropping the needle on.

Unsure

I feel he had more to offer in his younger days as far as diversity in sound. His last album was a generic piece of radio fodder with no soul. This album may be a return to real instrumentation rather than bloated studio garbage but not one of these tracks sounds that outstanding or unique at this point. I think he's lost and writing what sells. Can't fault a guy for wanting to make money or remain relevant at his age in the top 40 world, but in doing so he is not growing with the age of original fans and at some point the smoke and mirrors will disappear to reveal a mid 40-something hopelessly trying to cater to 18 year old girls.

AMAZING

I love this album. He is one unique singer and I will love him until the end of time. I love Something Worth Saving and the first time I heard that song it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you Gavin for touching my life since One Tree Hill =)

Why I choose him as my "favorite artist/band"

YES, literally HIS VOICE has always done me over, but I like beat of the songs. Thanks Gavin for gracing the earth with your beautiful voice and talent.
