Editorial Reviews

2008 self titled album is Gavin's second album which he wrote all of the songs as well as playing guitar and piano throughout. He worked on all the arrangements for this collection of impassioned, emotionally resonant songs about the joys and rigors of love and life. The first single, the infectious and edgy 'In Love With A Girl,' is delighting fans everywhere with his charisma and unparalleled musicianship.

5.0 out of 5 stars A place to be warm and welcome May 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD
"'cause the heart can't erase once it finds a place to be warm and welcome,
To be held in shelter" - lyrics from "In Love with a Girl"

Way back in 2003, I reported that Gavin DeGraw's debut CD Chariot was the best album you'd never heard of. Fast forward to 2008 to his second studio album, and although he's a lot more popular now, this is probably the best album you've heard only one song from.

That song is "In Love with a Girl", the first single, but by no means the only good track on the album. DeGraw's easy-listening melodies and simple arrangements make for timeless songs that will still be current in years to come.

This very talented young man writes his own songs, and also plays piano and guitar, and I strongly encourage you to check out the following songs.

Next to You (Wait a Minute Sister)
Cheated on me
Young Love
She Holds a Key
Untamed
Let it Go

Not that the other tracks aren't extremely good, but these are the ones that stand out, and the ones I think are single-worthy. There are no filler tracks on this album, which can be listened to anytime, anywhere and often. I rather think that DeGraw's time under the radar is coming to an end.

Also recommended for Maroon 5 and Jason Mraz fans.
Rated 4.5 stars

2.0 out of 5 stars Big disappointment. May 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've anxiously awaited the release of Gavin's followup to Chariot, which is still to this day one of my favorite albums of all time. Admittedly, I've always liked the "Stripped" version of Chariot the most. So when I heard this over-mixed pop sounding album for the first time I was very disappointed.

There are only a couple of songs on this album that are worth a second play. Most of the lyrics are corny and vanilla. The musical sound is way too bubble gum pop for his soulful voice. It's almost as if he was writing to sell albums to teenage girls. I've listened to the album a handful of times hoping it will grow on me, but to no avail.

After being such a huge fan of Gavin's debut album I'm probably harder with this review since I had high expectations. I miss his killer combination of a soulful voice and equally soul filled lyrics.

4.0 out of 5 stars A soulful return, but it's all relative May 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Gavin's soulful voice and infectious energy returns in the long-awaited
arrival of his new self-titled CD.

Our first taste of the CD was the catchy "In Love With a Girl", which set a popsy expectation for the CD. Thankfully, Gavin does flesh out the CD with a spectrum of emotion. He follows up his love story with "Next to Me", in which he seemed to channel a little Jason Mraz in the intro and eventually falls back into his own style.

Bound to get a lot of airtime is the strongly melodic "Cheated on Me". "I Have You to Thank" is cute but sounds a little Maroon 5 and is the most forgettable song in the bunch. He's back having fun with strong rhythms and piano riffs in "Cop Stop". "Young Love" continues to deliver a great sound with old-fashioned heart. "Medicate the Kids" will hopefully bring awareness to the issue with his message. "Relative" is a hard-rocking anthem then Gavin is back at the piano on "She holds a Key" which is finished by a driving gospel sound. Gavin's inner Tarzan comes out on "Untamed". Contrasting, is the "Let It Go", tender and vulnerable, reminding me a little of Queen.

The CD finishes with the idealism of "We Belong Together". This song is everything that I was looking for in Gavins follow-up to Chariot: melodic, deep, soulful.

The self-titled CD is surprisingly, harder to identify with than Chariot. The lyrics speak to a younger age group and with a definite masculine take, most would not be found singing to in the car. Given Chariot's bullseye mark, it is hard to imagine that Gavin is lyrically unripe. So, like he says, 'it's all relative'. This CD does not follow down the same road as Chariot but if taken on its own merits will still deliver. Overall, Gavin's sophomore effort is well-worth a listen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could've been better May 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Overall Gavin Degraw is a good second album. All songs have beautiful melodies and lyrics. I can listen to it continuously without skipping any tracks. However, it does lack the raw power and emotion that can be felt like its predecessor, Chariot and Chariot Stripped. Fans who love Chariot Stripped may find the second album falls flat in comparison. Gavin's voice is not strong and clear like before. On the first album, I don't even have to look at the lyrics, I can hear every word clearly, I can feel what he is trying to convey, every emotion. To me, that is Gavin's main strength, it's the reason why so many people fall in love with his voice. This is missing on this album. To say the album lacks the soulfulness as before is a bit harsh, I would say that it has the potential to be better, a lot better, if Gavin's voice is given centre stage, and not blended and lost with the busy music arrangements.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like Chariot B-Sides May 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD
"Chariot B-Sides" would have been a better title for this album, because if we are being honest there's not a single song on here outside of "In Love With A Girl"(which is basically a rip-off of "I Don't Want To Be" from Chariot) and "Relative"(my favorite song on the album) that would have been strong enough to have made the cut for Chariot. I absolutely loved Chariot and have been anxiously waiting for this release, but this is mediocre and definitely doesn't deserve the current 4 1/2 star rating it has on here.
This album lacks a lot of what made Chariot, in my opinion, one of the best pop-rock albums of the past decade. I don't hear as much sincerity from Gavin and a lot of time it just sounds like he's trying way too hard to make something with weak music and weak lyrics. It's almost as if Gavin didn't have strong enough material for a release but his record company was pushing this out the door. "Wait a minute sister, I know I ain't your mister". WHAT? And this is track #2? Come on Gavin..
I would be humming the songs from Chariot after every listen, but with this disc I've probably listened to it 5 times through so far and there's very little that's memorable here. That may be because I've not given it enough time, but there's nothing much catching my attention outside of the two songs I mentioned earlier to make me want to listen more. It may be unfair to compare this to an album as stellar as Chariot, but if you look at it another way and if this was the debut album from Gavin, I wouldn't have given this more than 2 listens. If I am comparing this to Chariot, this is a 2-star album, but to be fair, I rated this album on it's own merit and it's mediocre so 3 stars it is.

Wanted version of "We Belong Together" from "Tristan and Isolde"
I wholeheartedly agree!! I actually am trying to find this version for my Fiancee and I to dance to at our Wedding reception but can't seem to find it. a damn shame since it is far superior to the re-recorded version.
