Sugar Ray

Sugar Ray released an album titled “Music for Cougars” a few weeks ago.

I had not heard anything new from them in five or more years and was very eager to hear something different.

However, excitement quickly turned to disappointment when I discovered their style of music changed from alternative rock to pop/fruity rock.  They even feature a reggae kind of song called ‘Girls Were Made to Love.’

Like, seriously?! If I wanted something equally bad I could just listen to Sean Paul, or play Bob Marley for some real reggae…

Songs from previous albums that became popular hits such as ‘Fly,’ ‘Every Morning,’ and ‘When it’s Over,’ were characterized by lead guitarist Rodney Sheppard’s light acoustic guitar playing.

Sugar Ray would have a new hit song if they featured that same style found in previous albums, but unfortunately, that is nowhere to be found in “Music for Cougars.”

Until they come out with something better, I will continue rocking out to Sugar Ray’s old music.
