Single Review: OneRepublic – All The Right Moves

I’ve been momentarily a fan of OneRepublic and we all knew that they almost became a one-hit wonder with “Apologise”. Thanks to “Stop and Stare”, “Say (All I Need)” and “Mercy”. They’ve relentlessly ended all the speculations about their longevity. OneRepublic is one heck of a band and they’ve got the best melodies, lyrics and the most insightful live performances everyone’s ever heard of. Well, their frontman, Ryan Tedder hadn’t been away from the limelight. He’s making airwaves as a music producer of today’s top hits from today’s top pop artists. That’s an accomplishment to say the least but we wonder, where the heck is OneRepublic?

The brand new single, titled “All The Right Moves” has been making sounds over the internet over the past few days. and I’m lucky enough to get promotional copy of it. The single, does quite make a leap from their past few tracks to hit the radio. It’s more rock-sounding compared to Apologize but not very rambunctious compared to some tracks in the album. There’s still heaviness which is present on most Ryan Tedder tracks. But having said that, looks like the outcome is quite positive. The words are compelling, each line sang with sincerity and thoughtfulness. The overall product is astounding, breathtaking and absolutely stunning in every aspect.

Who couldn’t resist a good pop/rock song nowadays right? I hope this will put OneRepublic back to the place where they belong.

Catch the single when it comes out September 22, 2009 on Mainstream radio. The single is also off from their newest LP, “Waking Up”. Scheduled for a November 17, 2009 release.

RATING: (4/5)

RELEASED: September 22, 2009 (Radio)

    YYYAAAYYY!!!! I can't listen to this at the moment, but I will soon.

    I LOVED OneRepublic's first album–not because of "Apologize" there was so much more to it than that. Thanks for the heads up about the upcoming album, I had no clue about this and yes, who doesn't like good pop/rock nowadays
