This review is from: Native (Audio CD)
I've followed OneRepublic since the very early days and was eagerly awaiting 'Native'. Frontman, Ryan Tedder is a ridiculous songwriting talent and one you probably don't even realise you are listening to half the time. He was responsible for Leona Lewis's monster hit 'Bleeding Love' and Beyoncé's 'Halo' amongst other things.

'Native' has a logical growth from the first two albums but doesn't move completely away from the signature sound of what have gave OneRepublic smash hits in the past. It's a little more 'worldy', probably due to large parts of the album being recorded in France and parts in Greece. The standout track for me was 'Burning Bridges' for its sheer ability to move me and make me wish I had written the song about my life. There's plenty more to like here though. If you love those pulsating OneRepublic beats try 'If I Lose Myself' or 'What You Wanted'.

If you're new to OneRepublic (where have you been?) I always describe them as the best bits of Coldplay with all the right bits of commercial urban music.

The deluxe version is totally worth it not only for the acoustic tracks but the very anthemic 'Life in Color'.
