Must have for O.A.R. fans or someone looking to get into the

"In my opinion, Soul's Aflame is O.A.R.'s best studio recorded album, not by far, but certainly their best.
Album kicks off with "City on Down", definitely a great warm up and intro to the album and makes you feel like you're 'part of the band'. The next track, "Untitled", further makes you feel like part of O.A.R.'s crew as the guys fill you in on some lady issues. Following that track is "So Moved On", one of the more chill songs on the album that makes you want to kick back and relax. But don't chill out for too long, as "Night Shift" is up next, a more high energy song that is an instant memory-maker (or reminder). "Ran Away To The Top of the World Today" is a real chill morning-after song that is a great follow up to "Night Shift". "On Top of the Cage" is a light-hearted anti-conformity song that leads perfectly into the best 4 tracks of the album, in my opinion, "The Wanderer", "To Zion Goes I", "Hey Girl" (this is the original version of the song which was remade for O.A.R.'s album "IN BETWEEN NOW AND THEN", which, by the way, is also an O.A.R. must-have), and "I Feel Home".
If you're looking for a band to call your own and feel like you're right along side them drinking and having a ball of life, then definitely pick up O.A.R."
