Fittingly, Raisinbran produces music that puts out a positive, inspirational message. His songs are hip-hop-infused but also combine the softening elements of melodic rock and pop to make the music stand out. “Sunny Days” is powered by a melodic pop/rock hook, a funky, mellow beat and lyrics (“Gotta keep on track”) that convey the positive point of view of a happy individual who has turned his life around. The rapid-fire phrasing in “Abstract Thoughts” is impressive, but it lacks a catchy hook and the beat stays the same from beginning to end. “Excellence” gets to its chorus quickly and is more commercial, though quite short at two minutes. At his best, Raisinbran is funky, fun and good for ya.
