As someone who's long been a fan of the book, to see 'The Giver' movie finally come to fruition has been quite the nostalgic trip. Headed and ended by OneRepublic and featuring rising stars such as Tori Kelly ('Silent'), Capital Cities ('One Minute More') and other solid up-and-comers in the music industry, 'The Giver: Music Collection' has a perfect mix of superstar power and the flair of still-indie but progressively more mainstream acts to inspire confidence in its pedigree. But is that confidence warranted?
One Republic's first track 'Ordinary Human' has a pleasant synthetic backing and uplifting, optimistic lyrics that, with a certain "sci-fi" vibe, is reminiscent of Muse combined with the nouveau-disco feel common to contemporary popular music. 'One Minute More' plants the album more firmly in the territory of contemporary pop-rock with a light, airy and upbeat tone alongside, again, positive lyrics, and some interesting mid-paced synth. From there we go into the only female vocals on the album with Tori Kelly's 'Silent', which is a competent acoustic guitar song with a country twang. Where 'Silent' takes that distinct country flavor, 'Feel What's Good' by Jake Bugg brings in a dash of classic rock in some electric guitar. It's not strictly acoustic, of course, but it maintains a certain soulful element to its lyrics that resembles that of more acoustic and instrumental music. Bruno Major's 'Children' is more stripped down, its lyrics taking center-stage over a lightly strumming guitar.
Rixton's 'Whole', oddly enough, sounds more like a OneRepublic song than the actual OneRepublic. The music seems unnecessarily slow to the point of lethargy. However, Rixton give way to album highlight Aloe Blacc's 'Here Today'; the strong vibe of gospel and blues give it a certain dynamism and very inspirational quality. 'Shine My Way' by Sheppard has a lot of the same sound, and its more subdued lyrics carry all the richness that the swinging beat demands. The album departs with two more acoustic style songs - NEEDTOBREATHE's 'Difference' and OneRepublic's closer 'I Lived'. 'Difference' is slow and somber throughout, invoking the same vibe that made 'Children' work, while 'I Lived' picks up the pace around the time it gets to the bridge.

OneRepublic are re-releasing their album "Native" with their hit, 'Love Runs Out.'
OneRepublic has been everywhere the past year, and it doesn't look like that's about to change. In a couple of weeks, they'll finish up the U.S. leg of their "Native" summer tour, and they've also been promoting their newest single, 'Love Runs Out.' New music wise, the band just recently released their new track, 'Ordinary Human,' and they're set to put out a re-packaged version of Native with a couple of extra goodies.
OneRepublic's 'Native' will be released next week
On August 11, Native will be re-released featuring six previously unreleased tracks, as well as the aforementioned 'Love Runs Out.' Despite the song being the band's most recent hit on the radio, it was actually never included on the track listing to Native, even though it was originally planned for it to be the lead single. "I wanted it to be the first single, a few of us in the band did, but I could not finish the chorus. And you can't have a song without a chorus," lead singer Ryan Tedder told CapitolFM. Clearly, Tedder eventually found the perfect chorus, because the song is a smash. Now it finally gets the spot on the album it was intended to.
