    Walk Off The Earth is the most creative pop band out there.
    On top of the super covers they publish, their albums offer a rich, happy and varied set of songs that you can’t get out of your head.
    Go and see them on tour, their energy and generosity with the crew is just unbelievable. REVO is their first official record containing their most famous cover (Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To

    Go and see them on tour, their energy and generosity with the crew is just unbelievable.
    REVO is their first official record containing their most famous cover (Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”) and 11 original songs.
    Definitely worth a try!

    If you have never seen Walk Off The Earth live, you need to fix that. They are the liveliest, most energetic, and probably most talented live band I've ever seen.

They are the liveliest, most energetic, and probably most talented live band I've ever seen. Needless to say, I was really excited for this album, and when I finally got to listen to it, I was more than a little disappointed. Walk Off The Earth cut its teeth making creative music videos and imaginative covers of famous songs, and this tendency towards the 'single' format is evident. This is not so much an album as it is a collection of songs (albeit mostly very good songs) thrown together for the purpose of selling an album. I especially did not like the inclusion of "Somebody That I Used to Know". However, they are unbelievable musicians and very talented writers/composers. Listen to this album as if your iPod were on shuffle.

    Favorite song: "Sometimes", with its changing cadences and alternation between Gianni's raspy raps and Sarah's crystal-clear bridge.

    What a fun album! They have a very cheery vibe which hits me in the right spots, it is very pop like, and aren't that deep, but they are certainly fun!

    The songs work best individually, though, and the tune Gang Of Rhythm is admittedly stronger when paired with visuals.

    Their debut feels equally crowdsourced for maximum popularity, but fractures under its many moods.

    A confident, delightfully quirky, and endlessly inventive band having fun and delivering a kind of lightly experimental sunshine pop for the 21st century, complete with huge choruses, xylophones and trinkets, maverick rhythms, and a charming, fun spirit of adventure.
