iTunes Review

Michael Franti’s musical journey has led his band Spearhead around the globe in a crusade for peace and optimism. Soulrocker is their state of the union address. “Good to Be Alive” stirs the heart with its message of gratitude. “Crazy For You” searches for signs of hope in a violent world. And like any Spearhead production, Franti conducts a body-rocking symphony of folk, hip-hop, reggae, even dance, that brings positive messages to light.

Miss the ol' Michael

I fully understand trying to stay positive, especially in this day and age but I miss the old Michael. There's so much going on in the world that would be perfect inspiration for him. He used to get angry. He used to be righteous. His music used to flow organically whether acoustic or rocking out, now it's all auto-tuned electronic pop music. It just all sounds the same now. There's enough pop singers and pop music out there. The world needs the ol' Franti back.

Not off to a promising start :/

Up to All Rebel Rockers, Franti was putting out a solid mix of different styles, moods, and emotional feedback. Sound of sunshine even had a couple decent tracks. However, after the abysmal “All people” even the interesting pop tunes seem saturated with terrible club beats and overtly sugary pop tunage. It just sounds so one dimensional now. I get that he is going for a “positive” vibe, but this is just boring. Hopefully there will be some rock or hip hop inspired stuff to balance out the pop tunes.

Soul is slipping

Still love Franti. Still see him live every chance I get. But, of the four early releases, two are electro-pop-synthesized-overly produced-dance club wannabes. Doesn't feel like Franti. Definitely doesn't fit the 'Soul Rocker' title.
