Album length: 10 tracks: 39 minutes, 31 seconds
Street Date: March 18, 2008


On Addison Road's first national release for INO Records, these Texans bring a peppy mixture of pop and rock to the table. Female fronted and slightly quirky in nature, their self-titled debut is a good time until the final note.

The first track, "This Could Be Our Day," is an uplifting tune, with an anthemic feel almost like something you might hear from Leeland. The lead single, "All That Matters," follows a similar path, although the track is likely to draw strong comparisons to the vocal and music stylings of Maroon5. However, once you've heard those two songs, you've fairly much heard them all. "Sticking With You" provides a synth-rock dance-a-long, and "Hope Now" brings back memories of a Passion conference. Later down the line, "It Just Takes One" opens with a Family-Force-Five-meets-Michael-Jackson guitar romp, and "Always Love" seems to be Addison Road's happy place, mixing acoustic guitar with a slight indie rock twist. The disc ends with the ballad "What Do I Know of Holy," bringing out a deeper side of the band that was previously unheard earlier on the debut.

Addison Road's best quality is its youth group powerpop style, but the outstanding qualities diminish after that. Although there are times where the disc breaks the mold, the band stayed in a formulaic radio-rock sensibility that just tends to feel like a mainstream copycat more than their own identity. If they had attempted to step outside the box just a bit more, it would've made a world of difference. However, Addison Road has produced a fine debut, and we'll be sure to hear more of them in the future. Potential springs eternal in Dallas, Texas.
