[Genre]
The genre(s) of this album are Blue-eyed soul, pop rock, and rock.
Blue-eyed soul -> R&B / Soul performed by white artists, this music has a really nice vibe.
Pop rock -> Mix of a catchy pop style and guitar-based rock.

[Target group]
In my opinion, there is not one specific target group for this album, just like the other three albums of DeGraw. He has a voice that is attractive for a lot of people. Teenage girls and boys, 20-30 year olds, and even 50 year olds like his voice and music. His album is a mix of blue-eyed soul and pop rock, I think that that’s also a reason why it is attractive to more than one target group. His tour concert in Amsterdam was totally sold out, so that means that a lot of people are interested and a fan of his music.

[Period]
The album is released on September 20, 2011. In my opinion, the album is timeless, but that is because I really like his sound, but someone who likes heavy metal might think that it is not timeless. The genre of the album is blue-eyed soul and pop rock, which means that it is not limited to this specific time. For this album, He reached out to fellow songwriters that he had wanted to work with, Ryan Tedder (One Republic) and Andrew Frampton (The Script). DeGraw’s latest hit, “Not Over You,” is the result of his collaboration with Tedder.

    GREAT ALBUM OF ROCK AND SOUL I have been a Yes fan, more than I have been any other band’s fan.

So, when I listened to Yes the Album, I believe that words are simply not enough to describe my ecstasy. For a band who had pretty much been struggling to find their feet with their last two albums, it actually seemed like they had suddenly discovered their direction…
