Gloriana (2009)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Aug 04, 2009; Lead Performance: Gloriana; Genre: Country

Despite this Nashville foursome's attempts to garner comparisons to 
Fleetwood Mac — the first track here all but breaks out into the chorus of ''Rhiannon'' — the vast majority of their debut album, Gloriana, falls somewhere between maudlin boy-band songwriting clichés and
 a particularly melodramatic Six Flags country revue. But the simpler tunes someone sneaked onto the end (''Come and Save Me,'' ''Time to Let Me Go'') show promise. Lose the tinny, cheesy overproduction and half of the hair product, and these kids might have something. C
