5.0 out of 5 stars THREE REASONS TO BUY THIS MUSIC August 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Dear Consumer,

Here are three reasons to buy this music:

1. I have found something worth hearing on every track. Be glad to know that this is one of those rare albums that is easy to listen to from beginning to end without touching a button - the kind of album you can put on your car stereo and listen to all week while you schlep back and forth to a job that is not your dream job.

2. You know how television shows these days love to use certain kinds of songs by certain kinds of bands in certain kinds of key moments to heighten the emotional impact of the story? Mat Kearney is a master of the TV show background song. If you find yourself generally liking the songs handpicked by the producers of the shows you're watching and you find yourself saying to yourself "nice song, I wonder who sings that" then you will find something to like on Mat Kearney's new album (and his previous albums for that matter).

3. Mat Kearney combines a catchy, atmospheric, pop-rock, Top 40 kind of sound with real singer-songwriter personality and depth, even if he borders on being a little too closely inspired by a few of his songwriting inspirations. Listen to the opening guitar lick on Kearney's "Young Dumb And In Love" and then cue up "Crazy Love, vol. II" on Paul Simon's GRACELAND. After listening to Kearney's "Rochester," switch to "Highway Patrolman" from Springsteen's "NEBRASKA." Hear any similarities?

FOR FANS OF: Cary Brothers, Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Springsteen, Paul Simon, anyone from Hotel Café

TOP TRACKS: "Ships In The Night," "Chasing The Light," "Learning to Love Again," Young Dumb And In Love," "Rochester"

FINAL GRADE: A

Sincerely,

Constant Listener

5.0 out of 5 stars Kearney the Way He Wants It to Be...Classic LP August 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mat Kearney has been through a lot in just a short while in the music industry. His original fans have been able to see the fluctuation of stardom that has came from his abilities as not only a songwriter and singer, but now as an entertainer. His debut "Bullet" and "Nothing Left to Lose," bred spoken word hip-hop with Coldplay esque rock ballads. It was harmony and a perfect way to introduce himself as an artist. His sophomore album, "The City of Black & White," aimed to be more contemporary and adult based. It was very laid back and relaxing music but missed Mat's originality that accompanied him with his debut. Many fans were disappointed in the exclusion of his hip-hop influence. "The City of Black & White" was still a great album, but it seemed as if he had something to prove to his fans with his third mainstream album, "Young Love." He has succeeded in making current fans happy while obtaining an entire new wave of listeners who are looking for outstanding music.

1.) Hey Mama - 5/5 - Absolutely one of Mat's best songs ever created. It's upbeat production is the perfect backdrop to Mat's lyrics and soul. One can listen to his love for his wife and what he is creating. It makes the song very inviting and catchy. It could be a song that goes under the radar for a while, but then makes a jump into the mainstream later, well after the album is released. Excellent song. Something that we might be surprised to hear after "The City of Black & White."

2.) Ships In the Night - 5/5 - Lyrically, Mat has always excelled. It's something that has kept his name in my playlists since I had heard of him while growing up in Eugene, Oregon. He is an exceptional songwriter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Album - No Track Skipping Necessary August 3, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I never write reviews on albums. Just figure other people will do that. One listen through this album and I figured I wouldn't be doing Mat Kearney justice if I didn't say something about his latest "Young Love". From start to finish it kept my attention. His lyrics are extremely personal yet absolutely relatable. Makes you feel better about life after listening. Honestly, who makes music these days that could make you say that. This dude is the real deal. Only wish there were more stars to award and more tracks to enjoy. Thanks Mat, freakin' amazing job.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Road Forward August 2, 2011
By A. Pack
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Continuing to step forward on his musical journey, Mat Kearney is a rare artist in that each album he has put out has been of great quality. 'Young Love', his fourth album does not disappoint. It's a little more upbeat than his previous work with a taste of his early material. In many of the songs he goes back to the rap/spoken-word/hip-hop flavoring of his first works. That for me is a huge plus. I like the flavor that brings to the album. Mat's songs are catchy, upbeat, and fun but still filled with a beautiful message. The lyrics are just as important as the instrumentation (listen close). I enjoy an artist that can do that, and Mat is one of a handful who does it well. I believe this fourth album is a great direction for Mat. If you are a Mat Kearney fan, you will enjoy this album. If you are new to him, 'Young Love' is a great album of his to start with since it incorporates all of his styles well. Some of my favorite songs are 'Ships in the Night', 'Chasing the Light', 'Down', and 'She Got the Honey'. Overall, a really enjoyable album.
