  1. Ultimately, OneRepublic takes what all of those bands already do and pushes it to an even lower common denominator of slick, disposable melodrama.

    I remember I initially hated Good Life but at this point, I do like the song a lot. All the Right Moves and Secrets are also very nice. The album as a whole is also very good too. I think the songs released as singles are the best (as they should be) Full Review »

    OneRepublic had some big shoes to fill after the remix of "Apologize" seemed to conquer the music industry for several months, and they delivered with their second album, which was very underrated by critics. Beautiful throughout even when they are not trying to be, the album has no stand-out tracks, because the all but one track is spectacular. Unfortunately, this one track, the title track, almost ruins the vibe of the entire album. Nonetheless, from the singles "All the Right Moves" and "Good Life" to the lesser known gems "Fear" and "Made For You", this album is ultimately too strong to be brought down. Full Review »

    This album contains song that are beautiful, catchy, and deep. Why is it so underrated? Tedder's voice, instruments, and catchy tunes combine to make the best album. Full Review »
