Sumerlin "Runaways (Deluxe Edition)" by Jon Ownbey (cmaddict.com) on 2015-02-24 10:54:09
Sumerlin is a new group in the pop/rock genre that strives to blend the importance of being culturally relevant and spiritually significant through their music. Runaways is a rerelease of their previous debut album with 6 additional tracks. While the length of the album certainly gives you a lot of bang for your buck there where only a few tracks that jumped out as exceptional.
Runaways varied style between guitar rock and pop does not work well in this album. The contrast of style between songs gives you a hit and miss feeling that left me jumping from track to track. The lyrics are good but for the most part lack any deep spiritual insight.
Overall, Runaways was not able to capture me and pull me into the album, however the ride was not a total miss. There are several great tracks that show the bands potential. I think they have some singles that are strong enough in this album that we haven't heard the last of Sumerlin.

ARTICLE Slightly Obsessed #233: When God Tears It Up
A musty odor had been coming from the vicinity of my husband’s man-cave for months. I chalked it up to his old collection of books and memorabilia, but the real cause will force us to tear things up to get to the root of the problem and fix it.
