This is as good as pop music gets. From start to finish, this album embodies everything that a good pop/pop-rock album should. Incredibly meaningful lyrics, soaring hooks, catchy choruses...the whole thing is very listenable in the best kind of way. It is rare to see a pop album truly deserving of a classic rating, but if there is one that exists, look no further than Everything In Transit.
The opening 3 tracks of Andrew McMahon's solo project are so incredible, it's almost a shame to rate the album anything lower than a 4.5. Sadly, 'Everything In Transit' can't rsustain the sheer greatness of the initial ten minutes for 11 tracks. The remaining half hour of music is good, if melodically weak, but one can't help but wonder what could have rbeen if every track was of the same quality as "Bruised."
Standout tracks: Holiday From Real, The Mixed Tape, Bruised
