Album Review: Dawes - All Your Favorite Bands (9/10)

cover_itunes_dawesLead vocalist Taylor Goldsmith has a ro
bust, yet whispery tenor that can grab one’s
 ear with the utterance of one line or phrase.
 There is a poetic flow to the way this seasoned quartet joins in with him on harmonies and melodic interplay that transcends
 a majority of modern pop and rock. This takes their Laurel Canyon/Jackson Browne sound to new heights. The single “Things Happen” is emotionally powerful. And “To Be Completely Honest” blends Crazy Horse-like guitar bravado with an astute lyrical perspective that will stop you in your tracks. – Eric A. Harabadian
