Mark Ballas & Derek Hough are best known for their talented dancing on Dancing With the Stars. I wasn't sure what to expect from them as musicians. I'm impressed that they wrote most of the songs on this album. The music is a catchy blend of pop & rock, good for background music or singing along. Decent harmonies, & some very nice instrumental backing, particularly on Closer, Longing For and Underwater. Most of the songs focus on love or love gone wrong. I enjoyed this album, & look forward to future efforts from Ballas/Hough as they continue to develop their own musical style.
