CD REVIEW: Brett Dennen "Loverboy"

Loverboy (Amazon MP3 Exclusive Version)
Brett Dennen's fourth album is full of life! Conceptually, it is his most realized and best written complete album to date. The songs on the album are fun, heartfelt, and lyrically robust. He uses his incredible ability to tell stories through song to connect with the listener in ways that only he can manage. "Dancing At A Funeral" is a song that is fun and upbeat about an otherwise depressing subject matter. One of Dennen's best songs ever is "Sydney (I'll Come Running)" which is going to catapult him into a whole new musical bracket. This song is going to do for Brett Dennen what "I'm Yours" did for Jason Mraz. Other highlights are the lead track "Surprise, Surprise," the fun and funky "Make You Fall In Love With Me," and the reggae groove "Can't Stop Thinking." Although Brett Dennen has written and released some incredible songs over the years, he has yet to release an album that is as full and fun as this one. Without changing, he has reinvented himself by giving us a piece of what he loves and bringing us into his world through his music.
