The Reason – Fools (Anthem / Warner Music Canada)

The lazy people of the world will be quick to compare Canadian band The Reason to Kings of Leon upon hearing the group’s newest record Fools. While the comparison may not be entirely unwarranted, The Reason seems to dig a little deeper under the surface for the inspiration behind their material. This 11 track record doesn’t veer too far from a  “typical” rock band setup with guitars, bass, drums and keyboards but the group’s secret weapon undoubtedly lies with vocalist Adam White, whose soulful vocals make each of these tracks that much more memorable.
