Jerad Finck – Criminal EP


If you like your pop music with a lot of fun and energy, this one is for you. The title track is shows off that sense of fun. It is also high energy, and the vocals are quite good. It’s the kind of song that I like to listen to in the car on a summer day with the sun-roof open. Another driving with the open roof on the car song, I think I might like “Blood in the Water” even better.

I kind of miss the energy on “Pieces of April.” It’s slow and less driving or fun as the first two. Still, it turns almost into heavy metal with some of the guitar later. That’s the real winning part of the song. “The Good Life” is one that lands sort of middle of the road for me. It’s not as good as the first couple songs, but it’s still quite strong.

I think “Fire Proof” sounds a bit like Coldplay in some ways. It also feels a little like acts like Fun. That combination of sounds works really well for me. This is one of the best songs here. It’s not as good as the first couple, but it’s still very good. I can hear Coldplay on “Take Me with You” song, too. I like this one quite a bit, too. I would have preferred a little more energy, but I’m not complaining. This is the kind of thing that makes driving even more entertaining than it already can be.
