Conclusion

Pro-social Content

"Rosealia" points out the destructive nature of jealousy, stating that it "can rip your heart out" and "turn a hand into a fist." The artist wants to avoid messing up yet another relationship on "Killer Inside." Much of the album consists of neutral content ("Southern Girl," "This Time of Year," "Cry in the Sun," "Coyote").

Objectionable Content

"Summerhouse" implies that some murders may be justified. Similarly, on "Porcelain," the singer fantasizes about killing a lover who caused him emotional pain ("I wish I could kill you, savor the sight . . . That I was the last one you ever loved"). The hedonistic "Teenager" tells young people "if it feels good, do it" and "wrap yourself in black" in response to parental oppression. An untitled track refers to gays-for-hire as "streetside Jesus."

Summary Advisory

Kevin Griffin's lead vocals sound a lot like Garth Brooks with a slight rock inflection. Very pleasant to listen to. But several warped tunes spoil an otherwise interesting effort. Teens can do better than Ezra.
