All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The second album from Bryce Avary, a phenomenally talented multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter who records alone as the Rocket Summer, offers more of the fresh-faced, open-hearted paeans to love, life, and happiness that made his debut such a refreshing joy to hear. The minor difference this time out is that his hooks are just a tad less rapturous than they were the first time out, and the more significant difference is that his vocal style is quite a bit more bombastic. There are moments during "I Was So Alone," "Tell Me Something Good," and especially "Goodbye Waves and Driveways" when you kind of wince and wish you could pat his hand and tell him to settle ...

The minor difference this time out is that his hooks are just a tad less rapturous than they were the first time out, and the more significant difference is that his vocal style is quite a bit more bombastic. There are moments during "I Was So Alone," "Tell Me Something Good," and especially "Goodbye Waves and Driveways" when you kind of wince and wish you could pat his hand and tell him to settle down -- no need for all the yelling, dude. But it's impossible to hold his energy and happiness against him, especially when the tunes are this infectious and the lyrics feature lines like "No, this won't be a sad song/There's going to be claps and singing along." Between his love of Jesus about which he generally sings indirectly, if at all, his love for his new wife, and his love of life in general, Avary is the kind of guy who just makes you smile in spite of yourself. Recommended.

    Best album of summer '05!!!

    This album completely blew me away from start to finish. Not only is the music incredible but the fact that Bryce Avary plays every instrument on the entire album is even more impressive. "Move to the Other Side of the Block" is a phenomenal opening song and is only followed by better songs including the sing-along "Around the Clock" the catchy love song "I'm Doing Everything (For You)" and the beautifully crafted tear-jerker "Goodbye Waves and Drive Ways". Everyone should buy this album!!! Keep up the good work Bryce!!!
