Sound — 9
Gold Motel has an exhilarating summer-esque sound to it. I love it. While some songs are upbeat and joyous(e.g. Perfect in My Mind, Summer House) others have a nice slower sound to 'em (e.g. Fireworks After Midnight, Who Will I Be Tonight) Overall the album is fresh and reminds me of good times at the beach.
Lyrics — 9
The lyrics are beautifully sung by Greta Morgan. They actually have meaning and make sense. Some lyrics occasionally get a tiny bit repetitive, but it is benign to the song overall.
Overall Impression — 9
Summer House is a great listen. Just because the feel is summery doesn't mean you can't listen to it during the winter. Songs on this album always put me in a good mood and really stir up some good thoughts. I honestly can't say anything bad about it Greta never ceases to amaze me with her vocals and the rest of the band's instruments really do her voice well. It's been a while since this album came out but I still frequently listen to it and I can't wait to see what els Gold Motel has to offer!
