Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Platinum-selling singer, songwriter, and musician Gavin DeGraw will release a brand-new album, entitled SWEETER, on J Records on August 9th, 2011. Gavin first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, Chariot, which sold over a million copies, earned platinum certification, and yielded three hit singles: "I Don't Want To Be," "Follow Through," and the title-track, "Chariot." Gavin's self-titled second album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart in 2008, earning Gavin his first Top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles "In Love With A Girl," which Billboard dubbed "a rocking homerun," and the gold-certified "We Belong Together." In 2009, Gavin released Free as a gift to his die-hard fans clamoring for recorded versions of Gavin's live favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated artist September 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Gavin DeGraw is one of the most underrated artists! He is such an amazing singer, songwriter, and performer! I hope that this album gives him the recognition he soo deserves! I love every album he's done, especially songs on his Chariot album and FREE album, I love the raw stuff. I think this Sweeter album truly has a combination of it all! I was worried it was gonna be all pop crap, trying to be like all this other crap on the radio, but I'm really impressed! Some of the songs are "popish", but I would say more "vibey" would be the way to describe them, like "Sweeter" and "Radiation" are really fun songs. I think the new single should be "Run Every Time", that would be a great catchy radio song. By far though my favorite is "Spell It Out", WOW is that song special!!! Vocally just amazing, his true strength. BUY THIS ALBUM, YOU WILL NOT BE LET DOWN!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My new fav DeGraw album! September 20, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
If you're a Gavin DeGraw fan already, you shouldn't be disappointed here. Just finished listening through it once and I love it! The album is particularly themed to getting over someone with the exception of Run Every Time (unless you're the one who broke it off). If you are in that situation, you NEED this album for Not Over You and the whole 2nd half of the album. Apart from that, the music and lyrics here are superb across the album, amazing job Gavin!

I will never understand all these Gavin haters...the guy has an amazing voice, writes beautiful lyrics and melodies and plays piano like a god!

This album is almost as good as "chariot" - and that is after having listened to it only twice. Anything that grabs you that immediately is nothing but great music!
Can't say a bad thing about the album, if you love any of his songs - buy it!

If you're not sure listen to any of the first four tracks and you'll love it...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweetness Follows November 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Gavin DeGraw makes it to his fourth album. pretty much covering the same turf as his first three. He's still milking the same blue-eyed soul turf that has made stars out of Jason Mraz currently and Daryl Hall decades before. What differentiates "Sweeter" from his other CD's is that he decided to allow co-writers on-board for the first time. On of them, Ryan Tedder, has been all but certified as the current Midas Touch-man, ala Mick Ronson. Tedder is also the producer of those two songs, emphasizing the piano and making the title song sound tougher than it really is. Andrew Frampton also produces/cowrites a pair, "Run Every Time" and the closer, "Spell It Out."

What strikes me as most interesting is that, on his own, DeGraw comes off as a piano-man worshiping at the alter of Billy Joel and Elton John (especially on "You Know Where I'm At"). Not a bad well to draw from, and when it turns up songs like "Radiation" or "Soldier," worth the effort. On the more annoying and overworked "Candy," not so much. What I'd love to hear more of, though, is the solo DeDraw that sits behind his piano and lets loose with "Spell It Out," which does away with overproduction and just lets the man sing and play. My guess is DeGraw is too slick a salesman to want to be that exposed too often, but it's the highlight of an otherwise light pop album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Artist and Album... October 21, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had heard Gavin's singles in the past, and liked them, but to be honest, hadn't really paid any attention, since I tend to gravitate to other types of music. Once I heard this album though, the light went on--where have I been?! This guy is amazing. I've purchased all 4 of his albums now, and have not found a single song to skip when I'm listening. His lyrics are consistently insightful and relevant, while his performances are soulful and heartfelt...and at times rocking and sexy! Sweeter is, in my opinion, the best of his albums so far, demonstrating increasing maturity and musical diversity. I previously thought of Gavin's music as "young" and intended for the college crowd, but now I realize I was just seriously uninformed. This album is proof Gavin has the chops to appeal to everyone--any age, any background, any musical preference. As someone else said in their review, his music--particularly Sweeter--is actually addictive; once you play the album a time or two, you'll keep it on heavy rotation...if you stop playing it at all. I'll admit I've played it almost daily for the past month! Have a listen and I think you'll agree this is a great album. Check out Sweeter and Radiation...Soldier and Spell It Out...Every song is a winner. And once you find out how much you love Sweeter, take the plunge and get Chariot (Stripped), Free and his self-titled album too. You won't be sorry! Can't wait for the next album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great album from Gavin!!! September 20, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Amazing follow-up to "Free"!!! Really enjoying this album and the theme running through these songs. We've all been in the place Gavin sings about at one time or another in our own lives. Love his soul and his piano playing! I really can't name a favorite since all of the songs on this album have that Gavin flare remembered from Chariot. First time co-writing with others but Gavin's superb lyrics are still here. Let's see, the more rock types songs are "Sweeter" and "Radiation". I'd call, "Not Over You", "Candy" and "Run Every Time" more in the Pop category. "Stealing" almost has a Jazz-type feel. "You know where I'm at", "Where you are" and "Spell It Out" are those soulful piano ballads that Gavin delivers so effortlessly. You MUST see Gavin live. I have seen him over 30 times as I've been a long-time fan (2003), but NOTHING is like seeing him live. He's an amazing entertainer and you'll just fall in love with his music even more!
