In my headphones

Artist: Dave Barnes

Song/Album: Stories to Tell

Date Released: March 13, 2012

Genre: Singer/Songwriter, Pop

How I heard about Dave: It was sometime in 2005 when I was avoiding writing a paper for Dr. Ruff. I was surfing this cool new site called Myspace. I ran across his site and have been listening ever since.

What I like: I was in a bad mood when I heard these tracks the first time, and only liked a couple of them. Upon getting plenty of sleep and adjusting my attitude, I’ve decided that I actually like every track. It’s a cd I can listen to all the way through with out skipping around.  His songwriting is just getting better, and I’m digging the more poppy sound for the most part.  I’m sure all of the songs will be a lot of fun to listen to live, too.

What I don’t like: The track “Mine to Love” has that cheesy Christian Pop vibe to it. It was actually the first track released on iTunes, so I’ve been able to warm up to it.  It doesn’t bother me anymore, but it’s still not my favorite.

Tracks to look out for: White Flag, Love Will Be Enough For Us, Seventeen, Stories to Tell, and Warm Heart in a Cold World

Here’s my favorite track from the album. If you like what you hear, head over to itunes, amazon, or spotify.
