Editorial Reviews

Zac Brown Band is set to release new album Uncaged on July 10, and the band’s lead singer Zac Brown says in a statement the project is the culmination of the “powerful chemistry that’s developed by living, traveling and working as a band.”

“We’re always trying to push the barrier of our musicianship, and I’m proud to say that there is a little bit of something for everyone,” he says of Uncaged.

The 11-song album features a slew of special guests including Amos Lee and Trombone Shorty, as well as songs written or co-written by other artists including Jason Mraz and Nic Cowan and Sonia Leigh.

The album was recorded at various studios in Atlanta, Nashville, Asheville, N.C., and Key West, Fla. The band’s two previous albums, The Foundation and You Get What You Give, have gone platinum and produced nine consecutive No. 1 songs.

“This is the first record we’ve made from start to finish in one thought,” said multi-instrumentalist Clay Cook. “The previous albums have been a collection of songs ... this is an album.”

I pre-ordered this weeks ago, having absolutely loved everything these guys have put out. I received this in the mail today and have listened to it two times, and while it is another solid CD, there is nothing really new here. The disc opens with one of my favorite songs from the CD, "Jump Right In", an uptempo, catchy fun song that continues on with the ZBB "island music" songs, making you want to leave work early and head for the water. The title song, "Uncaged" follows, another uptempo song that displays the the bands musical skills. Track three is sort of a trite ballad, "Goodbye In Her Eyes", that has been done a million times, and while the song is OK, it is weak if you compare it to their other goodbye songs like "Highway 20 Ride" & "Colder Weather". The lead single, "Where The Wind Blows, is another catchy up tempo song that has the boys in fine form with soaring fiddles, mandolin and organ throughout the song. "Next up is "Island Song", a pure reggae song, similar to "Where The Boat Leaves From" from their debut CD "The Foundation", but just not as good in my opinion. Next up is "Sweet Annie", a lament to a girlfriend/wife for always having to be on the road and a thank you to her for allowing him to "live out his fantasy" and "not giving up on him". No new theme here, but Zac does a great job on the lead vocal in this one and the harmonies are perfect, recalling the harmonies from "Colder Weather". Next up is "Natural Disaster", another uptempo song, similar to "Mary" off The Foundation. Their most adventurous song on the CD is a sexy 70's sounding bedroom romp called "Overnight", complete with horns. While it isn't a bad song, it seems a bit our of place here. The last three songs find ZBB doing what they do best... Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Zac is Back--Add this to your summer playlist! July 10, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I'm not much for eloquent reviews. I just know we were bopping heads and singing along straight from track 1. Jason Mraz collaborates with Zac on the opening track, "Jump Right In." Great choice to open an album. Love that ZBB is sticking to the island flavor (Jump Right In & Island Song) again as well as venturing out into 70's music with "Overnight" featuring Trombone Shorty. Sweet horns and groove. The most adventurous song on the album and it really succeeds pushing the envelope of ZBB sound.

Overall, ZBB sticks to the formula which has made them successful the past few years with tight harmonies and super polished sound...But they continue to push the concept of what defines them and it works just as well this time around. Great summer addition to your playlist.

As a side note, I'm constantly amazed how Amazon can offer new releases at such affordable prices. Kudos to them for providing an alternative we all can afford.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zac Brown Band does it again! July 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is another great adventure through the musical stratosphere with one of the most dynamic groups to hit the scene in years. Zac Brown Band keeps you on the edge of your seat with each track. Starting from the "Jump right in" an uplifting island flavored track with great harmonies. Then the gritty guitar of "Uncaged" with a bit of the "Who Knows" feel I love including plenty of Jimmy D and the boys. On to "Goodbye in Her Eyes" the first ballad, where Zac takes over with his soulful vocals and the band backs him up beautifully. "The Wind" blows us away to country songs past with the quick paced music ZBB does so well. This track was performed live last night to open the Home Run Derby and ZBB tore it up. Then we get to travel down to the "Island Song" where the band pays tribute to Bob Marley and their love for reggae shines once again. "Sweet Annie" has the feel of "Jolene" with a different message one that says I need a rest from the road and can't wait to be with you my Sweet Annie. Ever meet that "Natural Disaster" of a woman you couldn't run away from even though you knew you were going to get burned, that's the one ZBB is telling you about in this song of warning and desire. Perhaps the most intriguing journey that ZBB takes us on is the one where we get to stay "Overnight feat. Trombone Shorty" It's like a time warp to the 1970's complete with a smooth beat, a sexy hook, some horn, and jazz guitar. In true ZBB style they pull it off stunningly. "Lance's Song" a lullaby about a musician who followed his dreams and played the music he loved until the lord took him home to the big band in the sky, must have been someone very special to the band. We all think about the "Day That I Die feat. Amos Lee" what do we want to leave behind how we want to be remembered. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect ZBB CD!!! July 10, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Uncaged is a great glimpse of what a Zac Brown Band concert is all about!!! The band is extremely versatile and can cover any genre of music and do it well. This album shows Zac and the fellas aren't just another country band. There is something for everyone on the latest CD from "Sweet Annie" for those that love the sound of "Colder Weather" or if you want a Jimmy Buffet sorta feel, go for "Island Song" or "Jump Right In." Even for those of you that like a little R&B feel, "Overnight" is for you. The band plays a variety of songs in concert and this CD showcases the talent each member of the band has and how they all blend together so perfectly to create the Zac Brown Band experience. Love hearing Clay Cook have a moment in the spotlight on "Last But Not Least." If you've never experienced the music of ZBB, you owe it to yourself to let this be an introduction to the band. They are a unique ensemble!!!!! Love them and their music.

Any thoughts on the new Zac Brown Band album "Uncaged"?
Hi John-

Thanks for the sincere post. I wish I could agree that the cover wasn't offensive, but I cannot. If you look here, http://www.brandonmaldonado.com/gallery/index.shtml , you'll see it isn't the first or only religious reference the 'artist' has done. It's clearly a reference to the... Read More
