Pop sensibilities, emotionally indulgent lyrics, feminine vocals from a definitively male singer: These three elements usually make me want to take the CD out of the stereo and fling it into the trash. But actually listening to the six tracks on Never Shout Never’s The Summer EP, you really can’t help but smile.

With unfailingly upbeat songs and lyrics that just make you feel good about life in general, Never Shout Never may basically sound like the Rocket Summer version 2.0, but you know what? Lead singer Christofer Ingle really sounds good doing it. It’s really kind of hard to believe that this guy has been smoking since he was 14.

Unfortunately, this album will probably fall under the guilty pleasure category more often than not, but seriously, there’s only one song that feels over the top on the EP, which leaves five fantastic songs to choose from.
