CD REVIEW: Dave Barnes "What We Want, What We Get"

Writing outstanding pop rock songs is like breathing to Dave Barnes, it just comes naturally. This album is just as good as any of his previous albums and he proves to us yet again, that he should be rocking at the top of the charts. The newest single from the album, "Little Lies," is light and fun with an underlying reggae style that makes the song perfect for summer. "God Gave Me You," which was released as a single prior to the album release, is familiar Dave Barnes territory and an excellent song. The entire album is somewhat of a mashup between the styles of Marc Broussard and John Mayer, which makes for a very accessible and familiar sound. Hopefully with this album, Dave Barnes can finally achieve the level of success he has worked so hard for, and rightfully deserves. Regardless, it's always nice to hear that Dave Barnes is continuing to make excellent songs and excellent albums.
