Biography

Clay Aiken has never sounded more at home than he does singing the lushly arranged classics on his fifth studio album Tried and True — the international pop phenomenon’s first album for Decca Records. The bulk of the album — which showcases Aiken’s powerful tenor voice and considerable interpretive gifts — is made up of songs from the ’50s and ’60s ... Read more in Amazon's Clay Aiken Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The next Frank Sinatra /Elvis June 10, 2003
By Susan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It has been decades since an entertainer of this caliber has come on the scene. This young man can SING, entertains with every song and is the total package.
"Bridge Over Troubled Water" is fantastic (My only complaint - I wish they would tone down the choir a little bit so we could hear Clay's beautiful pure voice better.)
"This Is The Night" is an original song, written by Aldo Nova who writes for Celine and Faith, among others. A beautiful song sung by a young man with an awesome voice.
It doesn't get any better than this (and I was a teenager / young adult during the Elvis era and Beatlemania).
I will be buying all of Clay Aiken's CDs for decades to come
Susan - age 57 (so much for the theory that all Clay's fans are teeny-boppers)

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not popular for liking him, but... June 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I like Clay Aiken. I'm not the kind of guy that would typically watch some reality show about "the making of" an American Idol, but I got into this season's series, largely because of Clay. Yes, I am male. Yes, I know he has a kind of efinimate way about him. I'm not popular among my friends for liking Clay Aiken, but I do. Why? He has an incredible voice, plain and simple. There's more to it than that though. When I listen to him, I'm moved, as if for the moment that's what life is all about: just letting myself get absorbed in music. He's not the only artist that has that affect on me, and won't be the last, but he's got that quality about him, and that makes him special.
"Bridge..." is a classic song, made new by this arrangement that I wish was a little less "Up with People" styled, but still excellent. "This is the Night" will reach number 1 and become a classic... just a great song with memorable lyrics and melody.
I'm looking forward to seeing what Clay does next...

5.0 out of 5 stars An Austin, Texas fan June 12, 2003
By JKinTx
Format:Audio CD
Clay Aiken is the real deal. His powerful voice has the ability to evoke powerful emotions. I do believe RCA needs to let his voice do the work versus too much background vocal on Bridge Over Troubled Water (hopefully that will be corrected on the album) but both songs make my day. Definitely a CD for all music lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the voice June 11, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Clay Aiken's been dismissed as "too Broadway" and "too geeky" for pop stardom. In a time of cookie-cutter pop stars, it's no wonder that critics aren't sure what to make of him. One listen to his amazing voice shatters all precconceptions about what a pop singer should sound like. Buy this single and you can say "I knew him when." Aiken is going to be huge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Buy June 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Clay Aiken does not disappoint. Both Bridge Over Troubled Waters and This Is the Night are wonderful. The more I listen to it, the better it gets. I haven't been this excited about a singer in ages. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what American Idol is all about June 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This single is great and really shows off Clay's great voice. 'This is the Night' sounds better than it did on the show. My only complaint is that the choir in 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' is too loud. I didn't buy the CD to hear them sing, I bought it to hear Clay. Overall though, the song still sounds fantastic and I'm sure both we be hits. I can't wait for Clay's full album to come out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! July 3, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When I heard him sing on "American Idol", I thought he was going to win. However, the quality of these two tracks make up for his second place run. The pop scene needs more amazing voices like Clay Aiken. I hope these two tracks are in his upcoming full-length CD because if they are, the whole thing will sparkle with these two alone. He sings these tracks with intense heart and soul, never holding back a drop. "This Is the Night" proves that we will be hearing him on the radio years from now. Hopefully, the Grammy voters notice him because he deserves nominations for this single.

5.0 out of 5 stars music fan June 10, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Even though I pre-ordered this, I have been privileged to have been hearing this CD played for the past two weeks on our Raleigh radio stations. Clay was home nearly two weeks ago and hand delivered several of his CDs to local radio stations in the Raleigh area. If you were impressed with his live preformances of these songs on AI you will be more than pleased with the studio versions. As always he is pitch perfect and his voice is hauntingly beautiful. To the nay sayers and especially Simon Cowell who labeled Clay as a "Broadway tunes singer" Clay has proven that he is a musically diverse talent. This is pop music at its finest. There is no doubt in my mind that Clay Aiken would have been a star without the AI exposure. This CD offers the listener a tiny peek into what will be a long and successful career of a very talented artist. Buy the CD you will find yourself not wanting to wait for his next full length album release.

3.0 out of 5 stars okay....
I like Clay Aiken's voice, and I enjoyed watching him on American Idol. However, this tape was disappointing. The songs were average, and his voice was not shown to advantage.
