Another pop/rock debut from oh-eight that slipped by me! Andrew Ripp makes straightforward ‘90s-style rock and roll, for fans of Matchbox 20 or the Eagles (with whom his keyboardist has performed). In fact, it sounds a lot like Train, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Especially when it comes to his crisp, just-ragged-enough vocals and the cranking organ on “Get Your Smile On.” This is a well-produced, meticulously crafted record with songs that are well-written and easy to listen to. I’m diggin’ it!
