OneRepublic (Musical group)
Ryan Tedder, the front man of One Republic has written tracks for some of the biggest names in music, from Adele to Beyonce and dozens of others in between. He seems to have saved some of the best tracks for his own band. From the stirring “Feel Again” to the slow, yet moving “Preacher,” this album showcases the many facets of the band. “Something I Need” is easily the best song on the album, and “I Lived” will stick with you. After a less than stellar second album, One Republic is back on form with ”Native.” Tracks to Hit: Something I Need, I Lived, If I Lose Myself. Tracks to Miss: Light It Up. It sounds like bad '90s pop/punk, which should drop this to 4.5 stars.
