Album Review: The Running Kind "The Girl For All The World"

If positive energy translated to cash, The Running Kind would have more money than Bill and Melinda Gates. With the alt country band's new album "The Girl For All The World," The Running Kind offers a comfortable, heart warming sound that fills the soul with joy. In short, it's a big success.
The album begins with the easy-going "Life To Go," which offers stellar vocals and a melodic beat. It's followed by the title track "The Girl For All The World." This Americana track is especially noteworthy because of the clever vocal performance of Leslie Bosson. She and her husband, Matt, formed the band.

However, the album picks up the beat with "Two Roads," which is a traditional country gem with infectious harmonies and interesting lyrics. The biggest surprise on the album is the honky-tonk cut "Seemed Like A Good Idea."

The Running Kind also have a chance for a Texas country chart hit with the album's final cut "Don't Cry No Tears." The song offers a unique blend of alt country and hard-edge Red Dirt that works on all levels. It should be released immediately to Texas country stations.

Other songs include the quiet "A Okay" and the bluegrass-infused "Don't That Make No Sense," "Old Girl," "I Still Love You (Like I Loved You Before)" and "Return Of The Grevous Angel." Many of the album's tracks could also find a home on Sirius-XM satellite radio, internet radio and specialized broadcast radio stations. Plain and simple, The Running Kind deserve media attention and radio airplay anywhere and everywhere.

"The Girl For All The World" is a fitting title, because The Running Kind's upbeat brand of alt country seems destined to find a willing audience in America, Europe and beyond.
