When I poke through my music collection there's always a few albums I go to when I just can't pick something to listen to. In the past it's been Dave Matthews & Tim Reynold's excellent live accoustic album or the Canadian favorite The Tragically Hip among others. This summer it's been all about Sam Roberts' first album "We Were Born in a Flame" which has really taken off in Canada. The album has a Crowded House feel along with some Beatles and other inspirations mixed in while not coming across as derivative. Solid lyrics, not over-produced and good ol' fashioned rocking makes this a solid addition to anyone's collection.
