It's not too much different than Lucky Street imo. The problem with me on this one is that they are sounding too much like cheesy mainstream radio pop rock.

if this were a 10 point scale, this would be a 5/10 and Lucky Street would be a 5.5/10. Do overs is a 7/10 though.

Love the vocals, but just not as upbeat as it needs to be.

Downgrading the importance of guitar, Floridian quartet Go Radio deliver a radio-friendly release with their 2nd LP 'Close the Distance'. More pop-rock than pop-punk, this is an enjoyable & catchy album which ultimately lacks a little diversity & errs towards the mid-tempo. Much - arguably too much - relies on Jason Lancaster's distinctive vocals, with his sincerity, passion & articulation once more of the highest order. 'Close the Distance' is also an extremely consistent LP, even if it does not go anywhere near reaching the individual heights of predecessor 'Lucky Street'. Recommended Tracks: Go To Hell, Close the Distance, Hear Me Out & Collide.
