50 Favorite Albums: 26
There are two OneRepublic albums on the list and this is the second one I've posted about so, it would stand to reason, that Waking Up features the best songs OneRepublic ever recorded. But this is not true. I think their album, Native, actually features the better songs, overall, but Waking Up has a better balance and there is more of a flow, more of a storytelling aspect to the music's transient qualities and it allows for a more enjoyable listening experience than provided by Native. That's not to say there aren't any awesome songs that came from this album, (Secrets and Good Life come to mind) but this one nabs the higher spot not because of its genius, but because of its rhythm and charm. Both are so good, though.
