Along with such similarly styled outfits as the Goo Goo Dolls, the New Orleans-based trio Better Than Ezra helped open the floodgates for countless alt-pop acts of the late '90s (including Semisonic, Matchbox Twenty, and Third Eye Blind) by merging college rock influences with mainstream aspirations.
Known for their hits "Good," "Desperately Wanting," "Juicy," and selling out venues for nearly 20 years, the band presents their eighth studio album — All Together Now via The End Records. Lead singer Kevin Griffin has one of the most recognizable voices in the business and the band's standard blend of light ska and clever catchy choruses is time-tested and successful. That said, Ezra's eighth album goes down familiar avenues. A lot of it will have you missing the days when Jennifer Aniston getting a new haircut was big news. There's a weird comfort to that, though. Some bands try to completely reinvent themselves, and alienate themselves from their core audience. There's no danger of that here; if you liked the band before, you're going to enjoy this album, writes Popshifter, in its review.
Lead-off single "Crazy Lucky" is a lightweight affair, pure sugar pop and compulsively listenable. With lyrics like, "You roll your eyes like I'm full of it/Well, I Googled that shit," there's a strong sense that if you remember any line from that song, it's gonna be the one with the "dirty" word.
"All Together Now is consciously anthemic, with lots of "whoas" and "heys" for listeners to sing along with. Even in the slower songs, the modern power ballads, there's plenty of space for singing along and careful dancing. Tunes like "The Great Unknown" come ready-made for either lighter-waving or turning on the flashlight function on your cell phones and swaying." — Popshifter, September 2014
