Michael Franti is one of those artists I could listen to nonstop every day. His latest release The Sound of Sunshine is definitely the most upbeat album in the collection and it works beautifully. I can already tell this is going to be a vacation soundtrack for me in the near future. The title track “The Sound of Sunshine” is a great way to kick off the disc and really get the good vibes flowing and put a smile on your face. “Hey Hey Hey” keeps the positive message going while “I’ll Be Waiting” will catch some off guard as you hear a U2 rift in the background. “Love Don’t Wait” is upbeat and catchy, a bit reminiscent of his last hit “Say Hey (I Love You)” while “The Thing That Helps Me Get Through” is a Lenny Kravitz-esque track. While it’s still early and I need to keep listening, I’m loving The Sound of Sunshine disc.
