Album Review

That These Things Could Be Ours is singer/songwriter Robert Skoro's sophomore release, and his first album on Yep Roc. The second fact is important as it shows the 23-year-old singer quickly moving up the food chain and quite capable of delivering a professional product. In many ways, the easygoing vocals and integrated arrangements of That These Things Could Be Ours make it a perfect candidate for Triple A radio.

It's nice, for instance, when Skoro and friends rock harder on "The Package," but, since it's the last track, it's almost an afterthought. Still, Skoro delivers his songs with confidence, giving That These Things Could Be Ours a warm, comfortable ambience. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., Rovi
