CD Review:

Sugar Ray, the charismatic Pop/Rock band that specializes in the creation of songs which stick in your mind like bublegum to the sole of your shoes, is back with a new single. Lifted from their Music For Cougars CD, "Rainbow" is one of the most profound songs to be delivered by this group in years. Commercial in nature, and engaging in its production, the song delivers a powerful message about life and the will to endure adversity. Metaphorically speaking, "if you want to see the rainbow, you got to sit through a little rain." The perfect sentiment for imperfect times when teen suicide is at an all-time high. A very impressive, mature, and radio-friendly feat pulled off by one of the least likely suspects.
