Ben Harper & Relentless7, White Lies for Dark Times [Virgin]

Our rating: 3 out of a possible 5
3

Let's face it: Jam-scene darling Ben Harper is just Jack Johnson after three mai tais, supplementing bland folk with elevator-friendly funk and soul. But Harper sounds rejuvenated on White Lies, pouring his energy into songs—like "Shimmer and Shine"—that deliver the grit and urgency he desperately needed. Matt Hendrickson
