Its also an album you can listen through, not having to skip any tracks to get to a hit. Then you come upon MoneyGrabber, the debut single, which boats of spite and hate. A very remorseful track, ruing how the relationship ended and wanting her back. I casually asked her who this was on the television. Well a few days later, I youtube the song, and my Lord, I was hooked.
Fitz and the Tantrums new single Fool off the self-titled deluxe album available now:. While I'm always in for discovering new music, I rarely actually pursue this myself. Not the music, not the lyrical content, but the progression. A few weeks after I picked up the album they came through town and I had a chance to see the live. This is the most significant part of the review.
The fight of the relationship. But as much as it has already been said in most of these reviews, this is the strongest album I have heard in a very long time. They take the influences of Motown and Philly soul, mix it with their own particular style, and the results are terrific. My favorite tracks are probably Rich Girls or Winds of Change. All I could hear was the chorus, and found it refreshingly funny. Then the title track with Pickin' Up The Pieces, you have soulful ballad of a man scorned, trying to heal his broken heart. After repeated listenings my least favorite is actually probably the track they're best known for; Moneygrabber.
Parts of them, for example, Hands Clap, lean a little too hip hop for my personal enjoyment, but other ones like Tricky One and Complicated have that straight up dance vibe I expect from Fitz and the Tantrums. It is home to world-renowned record labels representing music from every genre, including Asylum, Big Beat, Canvasback, Elektra, Fueled By Ramen, Rhino, Roadrunner, and Sire. The official Atlantic Records playlist for all the hot and new alternative releases. From the first track, Breakin' The Chains Of Love, you have the fight. Moneygrabber and Winds of Change are particular favorites of mine, but it is the slow-dance number Tighter, the album's closing track, that has hooked me more than any other. Just like their previous releases. .
You then arrive at the final track, Tighter. Don't get me wrong, it's a great track but it's probably my least favorite. There is a great deal of old soul in this album. Now I am going to make another comparison. Subscribe for the latest official music videos, official audio videos, performances, bts and more from our artists and projects.

You will love it beginning to end. Beverage coupon is available for tickets only purchased at Consumers or Canalside Info Kiosk prior to the show and can only be used on that specific show. Maroon 5's debut album, Songs About Jane, and this album are eerily similar in their structure. I believe it was some raw live recording of Moneygrabber that caught my attention. I unfortunately discovered the band not even a month after they passed through town.
The throwback sound is refreshing and each track will give you the desire to dance and sing along. With proper, smart lyrics and a rhythm and blues sound, this album is a fun and engaging listen. I downloaded Pickin' Up the Pieces a few weeks ago, and continue to repeatedly go back to it for another listen. Then my body started moving back and forth. Handclap is good but I'd probably like it better if I didn't hear it all the time anyway.
I want to like A Place for Us more than I do, because that song probably has the best lyrics of any on the album, but I just don't like it that much. Tickets can also be purchased on and at the door on the day of the show will not come with a drink coupon. A very big Thank You to all of our sponsors! This is definitely, and obviously a break-up album. But their very distinct sound and great lyrics have been replaced by this bland synth pop that could be sung by any old band on the radio.
