    The music in their latest release, Whatever's On Your Mind, stays on a pop path that's decorated with tinges of folk, blues, electronic, and whatever else they feel like throwing in.

    Once again, this probably isn't an album that's going to bowl you over and set the world on fire; it's a grower. And it shows once again that Gomez know what they're going for and how to achieve it.

Perhaps not the deepest or most high minded, but many critics don't have the proper appreciation for how difficult it is to make a catchy pop song that holds up over time. Fortunately for us, Gomez is very good at it. Full Review »
