I found this CD very cheap and bought it because I liked the cover. Jason co-wrote with Colbie Caillat and he has a similar, relaxed vibe on his album. It's really, really good if you like gently paced acoustic styled ditties with interesting lyrical twists.

"I saw him in concert with Colbie Caillat a couple of years ago and was blown away by his talent. I then bought his cd and fell in love with it and still listen to it every week. Can't help but feel good when it's on....and to think he wrote all these songs himself makes me love them more. If you like James Taylor music you will LOVE Jason Reeves."

"Jason Reeves is a songwriter who first received critical acclaim as the songwriting partner of Colbie Caillat. Having co-wrote the songs that appeared on her debut, Reeves took the remainder of songs that didn't make it and placed them on his EP `Hearts Are Magnets.' After receiving further notoriety on his debut, `Magnificent Adventures of Heartache' he earned a deal with Warner Bros. in 2008. Reeves is a lovelorn soul and his songs are reflective on relationships, breakups and reunions.
When I first heard this album, I thought it sounded like a Josh Rouse collection recorded around the time of `Dressed Up Like Nebraska,' his debut. Reeves' vocals could be a dead ringer for Rouse and the subject matter is fairly similar. While Rouse often stays morose and somewhat distant, Jason Reeves tempers his melancholy streak with slightly upbeat songs. Clearly some girl has broken this guy's heart, but he's moving on. Jason Reeves also has a knack for writing decent pop melodies but it seems that the album could have used a better editor, there is a lot of sameness to some of the songs with many being midtempo rockers. Standout track include, "Happy Accident," "You In A Song," "Gasoline," and "Hearts Are Magnets."
Jason Reeves is a songwriter to watch and it will be interesting to see what direction his career takes."
