These Times by SafetySuit
Released: Jan 2012
Label: Motown
These Oklahoma boys have shared the stage (and/or producers) with cheery uplift-rocker types from Lifehouse to Train to OneRepublic, and their epic second album is worthy of the lineage, full of bright power chords and massive choruses worthy of the new-weight-reveal climax of a Biggest Loser episode. Better at earnest romance ("This is my love song to you/ Let every woman know I'm yours") than societal uplift ("These times are hard/ But they will pass"), frontman Doug Brown howls with a falsetto-equipped conviction rare in a guy named Doug. Look out for the dancefloor jam "Let Go."
Rob Harvilla
