Radio Drive - This Is Our Time Review

Radio Drive: This Is Our Time

Melodic Rock
3.5/5.0

If power of positive thinking guru Norman Vincent Peale were alive today his favorite musician might be Kevin Gullickson, the man behind Radio Drive. His fourth album, This Is Our Time might be called motivational melodic rock as his lyrics "aim to uplift individuals in a time where so many feel deep despair," so his biography states.

Kevin Gullickson: the man behind Radio Drive.

While encouraging as that is, it's also important to note that Gullickson is an accomplished singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. As with past albums, he performs all instruments. Most of the tunes are, like the message within, light and uplifting. Gullickson has a pop sensibility, making each song friendly and accessible. Even a slower paced number like I Believe in You rises in the chorus.

Yet, he can show a more edgier side as on Hardwired or Borders, two songs that, against the other material, rock a little heavier. Generally, with a positive message in focus, Gullickson uses more charming persuasion rather than heavy-handedness in his musical arrangements to encourage you. If you like your melodic rock well-crafted and well performed with a positive, inoffensive, message, than Radio Drive's This Is Our Time is perfect for you.
