Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the American Alt-Rock band, their first studio set after a six year hiatus. The best part about the album-by far-is the title. It's called Music For Cougars. It's a hilarious title from a band that left the scene in 2003 when they realized that they weren't selling many records or getting much airplay. It was at that point that Mark McGrath reinvented himself as a host and landed one of the main spots on Extra. After a fun run on the show, McGrath decided it was time to go back to his roots and reunite with the band.

Admittedly, I've never met a Sugar Ray album I didn't like.

Unfortunately, hearing a Sugar Ray fan praise a Sugar Ray album is like hearing a Bon Jovi fan drool over a Bon Jovi album...or a Led Zeppelin fan swoon over IV...or a Miley Cyrus fan fawn over a Hannah Montana soundtrack. It's all hopelessly biased.

So, instead of merely gushing over "Music For Cougars" like a fanboy, I'll try to provide some legitimate reasons why I appreciate this album. Maybe some reasons will resonate with you:

-Variety
Sugar Ray's greatest strength has always been their versatility. This album has tastes of reggae, hip-hop, rock, disco, electronic, and Jack Johnson-esque acoustic vibing.
Unlike some other bands who have been forced into a creative corner (releasing similar song after similar song, year after year), Sugar Ray has managed to cover all their bases.
They've also added a sense of maturity to their song making, as evidenced in songs like "Rainbow". Of course, that doesn't mean the beach party is over, as the album still holds its share of sun-baked, pool side music.

-Collaboration
Sugar Ray always has a collab or two on their albums..."Cougars" is no different with all sorts of duets and guest writers:
Collie Buddz - "Girls Were Made to Love"
Rivers Cuomo from Weezer - "Love is the Answer"
Native Wayne - "Love 101"
Donavon Frankenreiter - "Dance Like No One's Watchin'"

-Vocals
Lead singer Mark McGrath lets loose, and really "sings out" in a number of these tunes ("Rainbow", "Boardwalk", "Love is the Answer"). Plus, it wouldn't be Sugar Ray without those trademark vocal harmonies, would it?

I was a big fan of some of their earlier works and bought this used when it was like a penny, but... I'm not liking that auto-tune. It's not that the music in this album is bad, but it is a personal preference and I just don't like auto-tuned music because there is no skill and passion in auto-tuned music. There were some songs that were catchy but... auto-tune... ugh.

Six years after their last album, Sugar Ray returns after an extended break to release their latest album "Music for Cougars." The album title might be comical, but the music is seriously good.
The band encompasses all of their previous efforts into this album, with a little bit of reggae and hip-hop influence, as well as the modern rock/jazz tracks. But more importantly, this is a feel good album.
What's likable about this album is that the listener can tell the band wasn't trying to make #1 singles. They know their best days, popularity wise, are behind them. Lead singer Mark McGrath made note of it in a recent interview.
As a result of no pressure, the band makes 12 enjoyable songs. Standouts include "Boardwalk," "Closer," "Rainbow," "When We Were Young" and "Last Days." While some songs are stronger than others, there isn't a terrible track on this record.
This might not be Sugar Ray's best album to date, but it's a solid record overall and in my opinion, one of their best. Any Sugar Ray fan will appreciate and enjoy this album.

Sugar Ray still has what it takes to put out a great album. Despite the low profile and attention paid to this release, the album has plenty of catchy songs that will please long time Sugar Ray songs.
