OneRepublic got the blessing of the mighty Timbaland when the mega-producer included a remix of their song "Apologize" on his album Timbaland Presents Shock Value. The tune went on to hit No. 2 on the Billboard pop singles chart even before this, their debut CD, was released. And while there's nothing else nearly as memorable as "Apologize" (so good, it's featured in two versions), Dreaming is hardly a rude awakening. The quintet engages in the sort of melodicism and moody atmospherics that make for entirely respectable Coldplay knockoffs such as "Stop and Stare" and the second-best song: the airy, acoustic-guitar-laced "Won't Stop."
