I absolutely loved 'Dreaming Out Loud' and was looking forward to their new album, and stumbled across it on wikipedia but was slightly surprised that it is only available to download until january when the album gets released. However, it is a very worthy buy! My favourite tracks are - All The Right Moves and Secrets.

Delivery was very prompt. Came next day as promised.
As for product, this is my second copy of Waking Up as my first one got damaged (I guess it's too hard for some people to put a CD back in its case, anyway) so the fact that I'm buying it again shows how much I love it!
A must have for a long car journey. The songs are all amazing and span more than one genre. There's something for everyone really. If you have any doubts on the songwriting ability of this band then you should really listen to this album. Or Native...just any OneRepublic record really. They are a select few of the albums that I own that I literally love every song on them!

This album is so good. A different feel to Dreaming Out Loud but I feel it is as amazing. I love All The Right Places, Secrets and Everybody Loves Me, in fact I love the whole album. If you like One Republic then definitely buy this!

OneRepublic, fronted by the very talented Ryan Tedder, (he co-wrote and produced Leona Lewis' Bleeding Love) present their second album "Waking Up," which continues a polished modern, atmospheric pop rock sound, ideally suited to mainstream rock radio.
It's not all great though, (hence the 3.5 star review) as opening number "Made For You" finishes with a rather awful choir moment, quite the idea behind that I don't know, but it brings a poor opening track to a woeful conclusion.
With that disappointment out of the way, "All The Right Moves" is a simply stunning song. A wonderful melody, catchy chorus, given the chance it could blow up, it's easily OneRepublic's best song.
More good news follows in tracks "Secrets" and "Everybody Loves Me," before the albums tone and melody drops down for ballads "Missing Persons 1 & 2" and "All This Time."
Drifting into the albums latter moments, you can sometimes find one or two filler tracks, and unfortunately OneRepublic fall into the same trap. Title track "Waking Up" is uncomfortable at over six minutes long, before "Marchin On" and "Lullaby" leave you with no lasting appeal.
It needs to be said though that it's well and good pointing out this albums weak moments, the truth is "Waking Up" is a solid album overall, there are enough hit singles here to justify a purchase.

And if anyone is wondering how I've heard this album already, that's because it's already out in the states.
I've brought the cd from there, not sure why the release date stateside was Nov 17, but not until Jan 18 here.

The first time I experienced the sound of OneRepublic was when I heard the Timbaland- remix of "Apologize" (he actually have a remix of a song from "Waking Up" on his new album). I couldn't get the sound and music out of my head, which resulted in a purchase of their debut "Dreaming Out Loud". And since I really liked this album I was quite excited when I picked up that they were working on their new album. How was this going to be? Would they keep going down the same road from their debut or would they keep on developing their own sound and musical image? Or would they just be another one of those that you simply forget after their debut?

Luckily, Tedder and the rest of the band, as far as I'm concerned, have decided to keep on developing and exploring their own sound with "Waking Up". And the result is impressive; on "Waking Up" you will find a song for every singel moment of the day. Since the first time I listened to the album and to this very day, "Waking Up" has been on repeat for nearly every singel day during this period. And as mentioned; much of this is because the band dares to explore their own musical image and take the whole thing to the next step. I think that the musical painting this album and the songs it represents is more independent, more exploring and starts of where the first album stopped and paints a much more exiting picture. And by this I mean that the production and the muscial and the artistic side of the album represents more self-confidence and work all the way through concerning who the band is and what they wish to represent.

And as I mentioned; is it early in the morning, are you going to work, chilling out at home or getting ready to hit the town - "Waking Up" contains a song for every moment of the day!

Ryan Tedder writes very good pop songs
and OneRepublic perform them very well.

This second outing is, if anything, an
a stronger showing than their 2007 debut
album 'Dreaming Out Loud' but there are a
few problems which still need ironing out.

Mr Tedder knows his way around a big tune
and a memorable hook-line and there are
many worthy specimens in this collection.

There is an anthemic quality to this music
born out of the multi-layered harmonies and
big, echoing, four-square percussion patterns.
'All The Right Moves' and 'Secrets' are both
stadium-sized illustrations of their manifesto.

The occasional and judicious use of strings adds
depth and atmosphere to some of the arrangements.
'Fear' is a particularly good case in point.
Elsewhere they are an unnecessary decoration. Their
bloated presence on 'All This Time' is truly horrible.

'Everybody Loves Me' breaks away from the dominant
formula to deliver a simple good-natured rock song.
The chorus is a tad hackneyed truth-be-told but it
scrapes through by the skin of its teeth.

'Missing Persons 1 & 2' needed finer attention to
detail in the tuning department (unless the effect
is intentional!) but still manages to be one of
the most distinctive compositions on the album

Once in a while things get a bit overblown however.
The jangling guitar and wailing vocal of 'Waking Up'
is a little too close for comfort to the sound of
a certain internationally known Irish rock band.
The concluding instrumental coda is extremely banal.

Final track (not counting the "extras") 'Lullaby' is perhaps
the project's finest moment. A lovely, uncluttered song which
gives Mr Tedder room to show off his elegant falsetto.

A bit of a mixed bag but the best of it deserves a listen.
