    O.A.R.'s seventh album is a perfectly crafted Hacky Sack soundtrack, deeply rooted in the sunburned dub stew of reggae, surf, and jazz-rock rhythms favored by purveyors of hemp head-wraps.

    King is worth a listen, but only to prepare yourself for their next visit to a neighborhood near you.

    On King, O.A.R. play with even more radio-friendly structures, a move guaranteed to alienate some fans while gaining plenty of others.

    Most of these strummy feel-good ditties-aw-shucks song titles include "Gotta Be Wrong Sometimes" and "Taking On the World Today"-make Jason Mraz sound like some kind of avant-garde noisemaker.

    This is suburban middle-aged music dressed up as something younger, something more exotic, something far more street-wise and interesting than it actually is.
