This album encompasses the many genres Ralston identifies himself with. The album is fully produced and is presented with a full band. Guitar work similar to greats like Chet Atkins or Django Reinhardt blended with thoughtful and personal lyrics while maintaing poppy and catchy melodies reminiscent of the Beatles or Beach Boys best describes Ralston''s unique sound. Although it really must be heard to grasp the sound Ralston brands on this particular collection of songs. The first characteristic of the music most people notice is the feel good or happy nature of the album as a whole. The songwriting is organic and comes from the heart, yet retains a lighthearted feel and doesn''t weigh the listen down with heavy handed lyrics or music. While it has been described as "ear candy" or an album without any "skip songs", the listener cant help but be reminded of its high caliber musicianship and the rare sense of maturity coming from such a young songwriter.
