Thoughts

I wasn’t really aware of Five for Fighting before, although it turns out that I know the Superman song from the Axis of Awesome multi-song extravaganza. Also, as it turns out, that ruined that song for me because it’s impossible not to sing ‘I’m a birdplane’ in the relevant places.

Aside from that, I quite liked the album. It’s pretty standard nineties guitar pop, as I call it “a-e-i-o-u” music after the Ted impression. Reminiscent of Matchbox Twenty and Hootie & the Blowfish. Enjoyable, kinda mellow, not going to change the world but nice to have around.

Rating: 3 / 5
