O.A.R.’s newest album, All Sides, lacks pizzazz and passion, which is surprising considering the 12-year-old band have sold 1.4 million albums since their start. O.A.R, known for their summerific ska-rock tunes, perfect for cruisin’ in your car on a sunny day, unfortunately, just didn’t deliver.

Their single “This Town” reminds me more of 98 Degrees or a corny church youth group band. While “What is Mine” is much more in line with what I was expecting, beginning with some droplets of synthesizer rolling into ska and picking it up with a catchy beat, the sound just comes off unoriginal and timid. A little experimentation would have been nice.

Grade: B-

All Sides is currently available.
