About this item

(This package includes a CD featuring the hit single "I Know" and a DVD which contains behind-the-scenes footage of Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh show, photo shoot outtakes, an acoustic performance and the "I Know" video. Also included in this package is a free Drake Bell sticker.)

As half of the star power in Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh television series, Drake Bell plays a party dude who is too cool for school. On his sophomore album, It's Only Time, he continues that notion of breaking the rules -- but in a much different way.

Reaching back to find musical inspiration in 1960s-era pop, Bell has created a charming, refreshing disc. There's a Beatlesque quality to the album that makes it both retro and forward-thinking in the same breath. Although youngsters will undoubtedly enjoy the bouncy pop sound, parents might find some of the references a bit too suggestive for young fans of the TV show. However, it's not in danger of needing a parental advisory and, overall, it is much better crafted than many of the discs flooding the market.

The retro feel begins instantly with the kicky "Up Periscope," a love song that devotes nearly a full minute to a theater of sound set in a submarine. It's clever and attention grabbing; then Bell takes over to present a bouncy, innuendo-filled look at passion. The wordplay is fresh and clever, and it's hard not to smile when listening to this track.

"I Know," the album's first single, has the solid feel of a '60s classic. With perfect harmonies and impossibly catchy pop hooks, he weaves the tale of a girl who has to be in the spotlight. As her boyfriend watches helplessly from afar, she chases after what she can't have -- and he follows her.

Bell keeps his feet planted in Beatles territory throughout the album. He strays occasionally from those roots, but never wanders far. On the acoustic track, "Found a Way," he puts a progressive rock spin into his sound, but quickly segues back into a Sgt. Peppers-era ambience. Fitting for a boy standing on the brink of adulthood, he explores the notion of becoming whatever he wants to be -- instead of becoming what the world expects.

Much of this album has the feeling of a young man exploring the world with adult eyes for the first time. That gives it a sense of innocence that occasionally dips its toe into murky waters. It is refreshing in that the album stays on the brighter side of life; even its darker moments are approached with a youthful, happy-go-lucky sort of spin. On "Fool The World," he longs to fit in, but his poppy take on loneliness makes the song seem some effervescent.

The final four songs on It's Only Time comprise a suite that openly gives a nod to the second side of Abbey Road. The four songs follow the ups and downs of three different relationships, finally closing the book with the aptly named "End It Good." The album's shortest cut has a vaudevillian flavor that is completely unexpected. Bell's references to Howard Hughes, Burns and Allen and Cecil B. DeMille aren't the kind of modern pop references you'd expect from a young rising star -- but then again, neither is the rest of this album.
