    OneRepublic 


    I’m sitting here listening to OneRepublic (http://www.onerepublic.net) as I clean my house and I had to stop and write about them.  I’ve been meaning to since I received their CD in the mail from BMG (yes, I let BMG bamboozle me into the 12 for 1, but if I didn’t I wouldn’t have any CD’s because I don’t take the time to buy them anymore).  I am still awestruck at their unbelievable talent.  I knew when I heard “Apologize” then “Stop and Stare” on the radio, they were special, but man was I in for a surprise!  I haven’t heard a band so awesome since Maroon5 hit the scene.  Every single song on their CD is worth listening to over and over again.  Rarely does this happen anymore.  Usually, there are the three commercial songs that can make it into the Top 40 and the rest is PURE filler.  Well, this is not true for OneRepublic’s “Dreaming Out Loud” album.  The first time I heard it, I didn’t move from the couch.  From “Say” to “Come Home”, it’s pure genius.  Granted, they did work with Timbaland, a musical genious in his own reicht, but they already had the talent prior to meeting him.  He was there to help them cultivate it.  They are not only on his Interscope label (http://www.mosleymusicgroup.net)(why wouldn’t they be?), he was the executive producer, which meant he had the utmost faith in their ability to be a stellar band.  I just can’t say enough about these guys.  I would be honored to work with them one day.  A friend of mine had the privilege to share a tour bill with them as the drummer for Fabolous.  How awesome would that be to share a bill with them?  I hope to one day do the same.  Kudos guys.  You have a fan in me.
