Take It All Away

Although he's managed by the same folks that handle the careers of Jessica and Ashlee Simpson -- and counts the latter among his ex-paramours -- this 20-ish singer-guitarist isn't just another glossy popster. Yes, he's got pin-up looks and a fair amount of coy attitude, but he's also a surprisingly nuanced songwriter and guitarist, as evidenced by this full-length bow, which falls squarely in the Jason Mraz/John Mayer end of the sonic spectrum. He lists towards the former on songs like the acoustic-but-rhythmic "Exit to Exit," which is buoyed by a soaring chorus and a deft, memorable guitar hook that propels the dusky tale. Romance comes to the fore on "True," a whisper-sweet-nothings ballad that's likely to inspire many a slow dance come prom season. The disc is certainly not without its flaws -- Cabrera's tenor is a bit too pure and innocent to pull off the sort of dissipation he attempts with "On the Way Down" -- but thanks to the production of Goo Goo Doll John Rzeznik and Cabrera's easygoing delivery, Take It All Away racks up far more hits than misses.

I love the album! It has such a John Mayer meets the Goo Goo Dolls flare. I expect huge things from him and can't wait to see what he comes up with after he's been well known for a while.

I first saw Ryan Cabrera live this summer opening up for Jessica Simpson. This was before the album had been released. I was completely blown away by his performance. Its pretty rare to find a genuinely talented singer now days especially live! This album has such a great feel to it. It does exactly what the title implies..."takes it all away" (your problems etc) and you feel happy and moved. Another plus to this new kid is he not only is a great vocalist...he can play the guitar and had a hand in writing every song on the album!! I whole heartedly recommend this great album...I promise you wont be disappointed!

I think his CD left a lot of people in awe/ For his first album he did an amazing job, and it ended up being a lot better then expected.

Although "Take it all away" is a good album it's still lacking something. It's like Ryan can't decide what kind of artist that he wants to be.

I think that Ryan's CD is awesome!!! I love the sound of the acoustic guitar in EVERY track. I also love the fact that Ryan co-wrote ALL of the songs. That is talent right there. My favorite songs are: "On The Way Down", "Exit To Exit", "Echo Park", "She's", and "Blind Sight". So everyone who hasn't already purchased the CD, go out and get it now because it is so awesome!!

Ryan is such a talented artist. Not only does he have an amazing voice, but he writes his own music, which most artists today don't. This album really displays his wonderful talent. I recommend if you don't already own this album, get your butt up a go get it now!

This is the one of the best albums released this summer. Ryan Cabrera has what it takes to make it to the top. I hope he comes to my town soon so I can see him live. His songs are so personal and easy to relate to. I love the acoustic guitar that can be heard in almost every song. 5 Stars for this amazing talent.

Ryan's cd is amazing. His lyrics are all self-written and are very relateable. This is one of those cd that you can listen to repetitively and never get tired of it. His songs are very catchy and with his own personal lyrics, this cd is so worth buying.I recommend Ryan Cabrera to everyone.

For anyone hesitating to buy Ryan Cabrera's new "Take it all away" album, hesitate no more! This is one of the best CD's in my large collection and I recommend it to everyone! You can experience his unique wonderful voice along with his unbelieveable talent of playing the guitar in all 12 of his self-written songs! This isnt the type of CD you find yourself listening to the same 3 or 4 songs over and over again. You will actually find yourself REPEATING all 12 songs! So don't wait any longer to treat yourself to an awesome present- you won't regret it!

Even though i wasn't one of those die-hard fans at first, after listening to his cd, i fell in love with his songs. True and On The Way Down are some of his best. He has the most amazing voice (his looks aren't half bad either) and his lyrics are really touching.

I love this cd! Ryan has an amazing voice and is a talented songwriter. You can tell he put his time and feeling into each and every song. He deserves to be taken seriously as an artist because he is really talented.

I've listened to his first single and a few tracks that were posted on his site. He is awesome (in the tone of bubble boy)! You should purchase the album when it comes out because I'm sure it will be great like the songs I've heard so far.

Im DEAD serious..Ryan is such a deep thinker..his songs are so beautifully written and performed. Ryan's album mite not b #1 on the charts(yet!!) but he's #1 in my heart!~!! I LOVE YOU RYAN!!!

This CD is AWESOME!!!!...You can listen to it over and over again and never get sick of it! The only bad thing about the CD is you'll need to buy more than one because you'll want to listen to it till it dies..... I can't say enough wonderful things about this album...if you havent purchased it yet I suggest you do...trust me, you wont be sorry! It has amazingly catchy songs that you wont get sick of. He's not only wonderful to look at, but with a sound similar to the goo goo dolls, you'll love listening to his awesome voice and original songs which he wrote himself by the way! So what are you waiting for?....buy it all ready!..you can thank me later;)

OK! Ryan Cabrera is awesome. His music is just something you can listen to over and over. Just put the CD on repeat the first time you pop it in just so you can save yourself some button pushing. He's got a variety which is cool cause no one's in the same mood all the time. It's just what I call chill music. I recommend it to everyone.
