ALBUM REVIEW: "The Jailbreak" March 7, 2013 Alec Cunningham Picture a band with mixed characteristics; one with a sound that is not entirely rock, nor entirely reggae. A band with a sound that instead falls into the category of surf rock, or if you will, "American Reggae," with similar artists such as Sublime, Citizen Cope, Jack Johnson, and Donovan Frankenreiter.

This sense of honesty follows the band through the entirety of their album, whether he is tackling everyday troubles or covering how to overcome those difficulties. "Scarecrow" comes next on The Jailbreak. The cleverness of the track is what makes it stand out. Paul sings, "You know, a wildflower cannot grow stuck in the shado
