5.0 out of 5 stars This Album Owns - Best Band in last 5 Years September 26, 2010
By Pat
Format:Audio CD
Let me preface by saying that I love all kinds of music. From Country to Hip-hop, I love everything. My favorite band in the world is Dave Matthews Band, a band who much like ZBB is better live than in the studio. It took me a while to listen to "The Foundation" album because I wasn't immediately a fan of "Chicken Fried," but "Whatever it is" brought me on board to the idea of listening to it, and when I heard "Highway 20 Ride" for the first time I knew it was an album that I needed to listen to. But let me get to this album. There are 18 tracks available. The deluxe edition has 16, and the iTunes version carries an additional two tracks.

Now to the music.... WOW. Zac Brown Band is the best band to come along in the last 5 years and "Colder Weather" is possibly the best song I have heard in the last 5. I remember hearing it for the first time. I was watching the ZBB webcast from Bonaroo on Youtube live, and they were playing a fantastic show. About half-way through Zac took a breather and told the crowd that he was about to sing a song that he considered the best he had ever written. I wasn't sure what to expect, but from that beautiful piano intro, I was hooked! I was so upset that I didn't have a copy of this song that I went looking everywhere for it. I finally discovered that the song was available on a Live CD that the band had released entitled "Pass The Jar" so I immediately scooped it up. And that's how this crazy ZBB fan was born.

This album is incredible! I don't know how else to say it. From the catchy and single worthy opener "Let It Go" to the upbeat jamboree of "Whiskeys Gone" to the INCREDIBLE "Martin", a song about a man of music and the importance of his guitar, this album shines. It is not a country album.

5.0 out of 5 stars ~refreshing sound~ September 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Song to check out: "Colder Weather" (track #8)

"You Get What You Give" is another solid album, which again is filled with impressive and widely diverse music. It's clear that Zac Brown Band refuses to fit into the same mold of most other pop-country groups, as their music is versatile, and sounds much different than anything else on the radio. Listening to this CD will take you for a wild ride on a musical roller coaster. Zac Brown Band continues their style of genre blending by throwing in elements of Reggae, Island, Bluegrass, Acoustic Rock -- along with a pinch of Traditional Country. It has a very laid-back and stripped down style throughout the album, with minimal production. Their silky smooth harmonies are soothing and very refreshing.

Their fresh and pure harmonies are very evident on the first single from the album, "As She's Walking Away," which also features vocals and harmony from Alan Jackson. This huge hit single has lots of sweet fiddle, along with a great melody, and lyrics that almost everyone can relate to. It has a very traditional feel to it, but at the same time, is breezy and refreshing. Another colorful song is the crisp "Let It Go" -- an upbeat and catchy song which is just waiting in line to become a hit single. Even though it's upbeat, it still has a laid-back and acoustic-driven feel. One of the most laid-back and carefree songs on the album is the very tropical, "Knee Deep" -- a song which features Jimmy Buffett, and almost certainly will become a monster summer hit. It's a bit similar to "Toes," but even more catchy, and soothing... close your eyes, and just imagine yourself in your own paradise. It's a simple song, but perfectly executed.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's like "The Foundation -Part II" -- Great! September 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
First is a general overview, then you can skip down to the track-by-track detailed review!

Zac Brown Band -You Get What You Give (Sept 21,2010)
The band's fourth studio album, (but 2nd in the spotlight) and follow-up to the hugely successful double-platinum "The Foundation" from late 2008, is nothing less than a continuation of the toe-tapping grass roots musicianship, stellar vocal harmonies and honest songwriting that keeps Zac Brown Band on the top of the charts and a regular nominee of nearly every award available in the (country) music industry lately.

This album, while still a fresh release at the time of this review, contains several would-be/should-be radio hits, including the current hit, a collaboration with now-veteran country music giant Alan Jackson, "As She's Walking Away". If you're a fan of their previous album The Foundation, or at least the 4 #1s that album introduced to the radio: "Chicken Fried", "Toes", "Highway 20 Ride", and "Free", and the #2 "Whatever it is", you will no doubt find this album to be another just like it. Like those hits, this album is woven with upbeat hardcore down home country elements, country pop-rock toe-tappers, and soft emotion. I almost consider this album to be `The Foundation- Part II'...but that's just my opinion. And I mean that in a good way, believe me.

Following is a song-by-song synopsis of what you can expect from this album. These are my personal opinions and comparisons.

Track List

1. Let it Go
What a track to kick off the new album! Put the windows down and crank it up! This track is about enjoying life and has an inspirational message urging you to forget the crap that you can't do anything about while enjoying what you have before it's too late.
