On Donavon Frankenreiter's third album, the former surfer and FOJ (friend of Jack, as in Jack Johnson) delivers another solid serving of laid-back sandy singer/songwriter soul. This time out there is less energy and funk than on 2006's Move by Yourself, and also fewer memorable songs. It feels like a bit of a backslide from that album's ambition and drive, but still results in a perfectly fine record. Frankenreiter hasn't gone back to the barely ambulatory pace of his debut; there is a lot of mellow bounce and semi-funky soul to be found, especially on "Hit the Ground. Pass It Around may mark the end of Frankenreiter the artist, but it may also just be a stop for breath. Either way, it's an album that fans of laid-back, peaceful and easy singers will like. Not love but like, and that's OK.
Pass It Around is the title of Donavon Frankenreiter's third album, released on August 19, 2008 (see 2008 in music). Life, Love & Laughter" – 3:12 (Donavon Frankenreiter; Squeak E. Clean). Too Much Water" – 3:32 (Donavon Frankenreiter; Lehning; Tashian). Come with Me" – 3:29 (Cockrell; Donavon Frankenreiter). Your Heart" – 2:46 (Cockrell; Donavon Frankenreiter). Hit the Ground Running" – 3:40 (Donavon Frankenreiter; McQuien). Mansions in the Sand" – 5:03 (Donavon Frankenreiter; McQuien).
On Pass it Around, his third album, Frankenreiter continues to purvey his blend of easy grooves and laid-back philosophy. Frankenreiter's USP remains his singing voice; a rasping drawl that might be characterized as JJ Cale-lite. In fact, he's so mellow, he makes Bill Murray seem hectic. The content can be pretty much summed up by the first song title, Life, Love And Laughter, particularly when he sings, ''Everything you need can be right in front of you''. For the allusions to contemporary issues, from war to the environment, it's hard not to feel that all he really wants to do is catch another wave. Producer Joe Chiccarelli carves some smooth arrangements around the lip with plenty of fluff (If you’ll excuse the surfing lingo). Hit The Ground Running is particularly catchy and positive, and the album does have some genuinely affecting moments.
