At first listen, most of what Hello Stranger had to offer didn't really mesh well with me. I heard potential (the singer's voice is incredible with the style) and that inspired me to continue listening even though very little was keeping my interest. "Take It To The Maxx" was the only song really grabbing my attention.
After a month, I can say that this album is, hands down, one of the best things I have bought this year. The music is well written, the lyrics are interesting and the singer's voice, as I said, suits the music perfectly.
Normally I would go through why I like certain songs, but I really have faith that you, the consumer, will trust my opinion, and the opinions of others who have also loved this album. I will however, list the songs I love from this album.
"Take It To The Maxx", "Here We Go Again", "Her In These Lights", "Learn Again To Feel", "Plain And Simple", "Everyone Comes Here", "Dancing For No One".
Go for it. You know you want to.
