It’s finally here! OneRepublic finally released their third studio album, Native, it’s well worth the wait.
Warning! If you don’t like great songs, dislike catchy hooks, hate anthemic choruses, fear uplifting and emotionally charged lyrics and great pop/rock production, stay away from Native.
It’s full of music goodness. After several repeated songs, there are definitely numerous songs that standout, aside from the already released singles, “Feel Again”, and “If I Lose Myself”.
“What You Wanted” follows the formula created by Ryan Tedder and is a great pop song. “Burning Bridges” is definitely radio friendly and will serve as a great future single with it’s instantly catchy hook and Ryan’s signature falsetto.
At the moment, the album’s opening track, “Counting Stars” is my favorite track and really should be the next single from the album. It starts off bare, and builds into a great and anthemic song, with an instantly catchy hook and chorus.
“Every thing that kills me makes me feel alive.”
