Ingram Hill returns with their sophomore effort, "Cold In California." While follow-ups to lackluster selling major label debuts are rare these days, Ingram Hill is fortunate to get a second shot at major label success. While Ingram Hill has really stuck pretty close musically to the southern style rock that got them where they are, lyrically this band has grown leaps and bounds since “June’s Picture Show.” Its not evident more than in the single “Why Don’t You” as well as in the track “Four Letter Word,” both showcasing strong hooks, and a tight arrangement. Also noteworthy is the heartfelt “What You Want” and “Troubled Mercy,” both indicative of the band’s diverse sound and lead singer Justin Moore’s growing confidence in his vocals. Other than the band’s predictable cover of “Million Miles Away,” this album is pretty solid from start to finish. Whether it contains a song that’s good enough to catapult this band into the spotlight and give them a chance for a third major label album is really the question here, and the answer remains to be seen.
