Aware Compilation, Vol. 9

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
It's appropriate that Aware's ninth label'n'friends comp begins with Wheat's "I Met a Girl" -- the song's artfully tricked-out adult alternative groove perfectly illustrates where Aware's guiding sound is midway through the early 2000s.

Of course, slick and savvy can also be construed as bland and opportunistic -- material...

Of course, slick and savvy can also be construed as bland and opportunistic -- material from Starch Martins and Bleu doesn't really resonate beyond the pleasantly vague. But Alice Peacock's moody, hopeful "Alabama Boy" is better, for some reason reminding of Marc Cohn's soulful croon, and there's a nice live version of Luce's feel-good radio hit "Good Day." Perpetually chilled bearded guy Jack Johnson is here, too; he contributes an alternate version of the Brushfire Fairytales track "Posters."
