The band Rooney’s sophomore album arrived last week. As a fan of the band I was excited to see what Rooney would be offering their listeners with this new album.

‘Calling the World’ is a great follow up from front man Robert Schwartzman and the rest of the group. The band who is well-known from their appearances in The Princess Diaries (film) and The OC season 1 (television show) has a sunny retro-pop sound. Something in it has a Beatles feeling, that is distinctly California-fied. Their self titled first album was filled with these kind of songs, where the second album starts to change. The feeling of the new disc is true to their past, but it goes in a new direction.

There is a new sound to a few of their songs, bringing out great personality and depth. Not every song is a sing-along single. There are a couple mellower song, in the ballad family, but still true to their retro-pop sound. Definately keep on the lookout for pop hit singles in Calling the World and When Did Your Heart Go Missing? The other songs will keep you singing along to this excellent album that was worth the wait.

The photos are my personal photography from their recent concert in Minneapolis.

Have you listened to Rooney? What are your thoughts on the new Calling the World disc?
