Album: Break Out
Reason: I was with my cousins killing time in Barns & Noble and we were picking up random CDs looking for something good. We found Soulive. We didn't buy the album then but we never forgot what we heard that day. 3 years later I heard about them again and bought Break Out as soon as I could. This album has everything. First off Soulive is an incredible group of musicians. They are Jazz/Funk/Soul/Rock. You have to hear this album to believe it. The keyboardist/organist also plays the bass line on the keys. Watching them live, it takes you a minute to figure out that there isn't an actual bass player on stage playing that fast, complicated bass line. You see it but you don't believe it. This album has a lot of guest artists aswell, one of the most note able might be Robert Randolph from Robert Randolph and the Family Band.
