On their third album, Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney extend their contemporary poetry. Dan+Shay pays tribute to country pop thanks to the balance found by both men during their collaboration. Sensitive but in no way tedious, they launch Alone Together with a punchy drum intro. Perfectly balanced and catchy country rock music, softened by the two accomplices’ smooth and light vocals. An intimate and imaginary universe transpires from their compositions. Sincere and humble, their stories are those of daily lives anyone can relate to, like in the track Tequila. A Proust madeleine of sorts, in which tequila sneakily replaced the madeleine… Love, at the very least romance, are central themes for Smyers and Mooney. Keeping Score therefore comes as no surprise, halfway between Shay and Kelly Clarkson. A romantic ballad introduced by a piano solo and quickly caught up by the union of two voices that seem to be made for each other. But the duo also preserves the musical heritage of a more traditional country music, highlighted in My Side of the Fence intro with a mandolin and steel guitar. A pop country album that radiates youthful energy and preaches harmony among all beings.  – Anna Coluthe
