Save Me [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Erik Hage
Like the Dave Matthews Band before them, the Pat McGee Band is a tireless touring unit from Virginia with a titular leader. But whereas Matthews' band pulls from a stew of eclectic influences, McGee and company produce a relatively straightforward brand of modern rock that's big on love themes and propelled by earnest vocals. Their clean-scrubbed and if not Christian, then at least Christian-approved alt-rock calls to mind such higher-profile contemporaries as Vertical Horizon. McGee is far from a newcomer, however: he has been plugging away since the mid-'90s when he released his first LP.

All Music Guide - Erik Hage
Like the Dave Matthews Band before them, the Pat McGee Band is a tireless touring unit from Virginia with a titular leader. But whereas Matthews' band pulls from a stew of eclectic influences, McGee and company produce a relatively straightforward brand of modern rock that's big on love themes and propelled by earnest vocals. Their clean-scrubbed and if not Christian, then at least Christian-approved alt-rock calls to mind such higher-profile contemporaries as Vertical Horizon. McGee is far from a newcomer, however: he has been plugging away since the mid-'90s when he released his first LP. Coming into this album the Pat McGee Band had built up a solid grass-roots following through relentless touring. In the past, there has been an acoustic bent to a lot of McGee's tunes. But on Save Me, McGee underpins his tunes with more electric guitar, propelling the euphoric choruses of most tracks with catchy guitar grind see "Beautiful Ways" and "Must Have Been Love". There's a willfully homogenous spirit at work here, but within the band's limited context big, bright, innocuous love rock, McGee is a strong songwriter with a nice ear for hooks and a knack for surprising melodic turns and clever bridges. The Pat McGee Band is clearly not trying to reinvent the wheel the band makes Coldplay sound simply avant-garde by comparison, but add enough production polish to make some of its pat gestures seem ambitious, if not grand. [The Kirtland reissue includes five unreleased, pleasant-enough acoustic tracks and a video for "Must Have Been Love."]
