Aiming for the credibility he deserved but never received as NKOTB's lead singer, Jordan Knight arrives with his first solo album. If youre expecting sugary teen-pop again, you are way wrong. This album is top-notch r&b and Jordan has obviously used his hiatus well. What one almost immediately notices is that Jordan does not over-sing, instead using his voice to actually express the emotion in the song. The first two songs "Give it to You" and "A Different Party" are OK, but sound like they belong on someone else's album. Jordan's smooth voice is obviously better suited for the ballads which dominate this album. Producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis continue their long streak of quality music with the Boyz II Men-ish "Broken by You" and "Close My Eyes" (which samples "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas! ) The rest of the album, produced by Jordan and Robin Thicke (with an assist from ex Kid Donnie Wahlberg) contains beautifully written and sung tunes such as a somewhat bizarre ballad reconstruction of Prince's "I Could Never Take the PLace" and "Separate Ways" (which was co-written by ALAN THICKE (AKA Jason Seaver on "Growing Pains"). Obviously, Interscope made an unwise decision in marketing this to a teenybopper crowd as opposed to an audience more in tune with a Jon B or a Babyface. If you are looking for great songs sung by a surprisingly great voice, you will not be disappointed by this album.

When I was between the age of 6-9 I loved this band, I don't know if you guys know them, they were called the New Kids On the Block, their lead singer Jordan Knight became my first ever crush. When they split up in 94 I was abroad and so didn't realise this and subsequently forgot about the New Kids and the handsome dark-haired falsetto with the dimples.

In 1999 I was pleasantly reminded when Jordan K released 'Give it to you' which I loved but for some strange reason I didn't buy the single and didn't follow Jordan's progress and cos I didn't see him since (I live in the UK) I didn't know of this album and again forgot about JK.

Then last year me and my older sister were reminiscing and New Kids came up and from then on I fell in love with the New Kids all over again, buying up their old merchandise off ebay. You're probably thinking, how sad?

Wrong! You know why? Because it eventually led me to buy this excellent album which I recieved a few days ago. Don't get me wrong, I'm not one to like a piece of music just cos of who sings it, in fact I bought Jordan's remix album that he released in 2004 of the old new kids songs which although brought back a lot of good memories, weren't that impressive.

Anyway going back to this album, there is not one bad song on it. 'Give it to you' shows a daring, sexy side to Jordan than his 'I'll be loving you forever days', which really works. 'A Different Party' is a great dance track with Jordan's voice sounding like a cross between Jamie Cullum and George Michael, trust me it works! 'I could never take the place of your man' is a ballad version of Prince's 1987 'rock' hit. Let's just say Jordan wins, it sounds much better as a ballad.

Like most people, I really didn't know what to expect from this former New Kid. Back in the NKOTB days, I was just but a child, so I really have to say that I really didn't know the New Kids. I, like many people, didn't go running to the store when hi CD came out because it was uncertain if he could produce any other great single to back up his chart-topper "Give it to you."My decision to buy the CD was when I saw the video for his next single, "I could never take the place of your man." I believe this song is way better than the fast-paced song Prince recorded back in the day. This song is a very catchy ballad and demonstrates that Jordan isn't just about pop: THE BOY CAN SING.Other very catchyhits includes his breakthrough hit "Give it to you," a song Jordan admits whose sounds were inspired by the works of Timberland and the Beatles. It is just an awesome song, makes you just rise up and try to imitate Jordan's dance moves. "A Different Party" is a real good club song, because it has a nice rhythm and it is very danceable. As I repeated earlier, I didn't know what to expect with this CD: I found out I got more than I expected. Buy this CD: It has everything any music lover adores!

Jordan Knights first solo attempt following the New Kids era is a smash hit. The song "Give it to you" is a whole new sound for Jordan. It is sexy and exciting! No one would of thought to hear Jordan Knight singing about wanting to have sex! He also has a lot of other songs on his cd like "I can never take the place of your man" which is slow remix orignally sang by Price. You have a great variety of songs that really show off Jordan's talent, the cd is worth getting!

Not all rites of passage are guaranteed successes. The decade that has elapsed since the break-up of NKOTB could not have been an easy one for its former members; the musical expectation of popular artists in the 90's has been immense, what with the cross-over popularity of other genres above the bubblegum fare of Top 40. BUT, JORDAN KNIGHT's solo venture, a self-titled collection of J. Jam & T. Lewis-produced eleven cuts is nothing but a guarantee! All skepticism and doubt are quickly vanquished with the first cut and single release, GIVE IT TO YOU. This is the invitation quietly issued to the listener. One accepts, as it is not a strained delivery of vocals which admonish one to stay, but an almost quiet kind of persuasion. It would be narrow to call this an urban production, but is it the slick production of certain cuts which make such allowances. The transition of CHANGE MY WAYS, a resolution and decree for Knight, to Prince's I COULD NEVER TAKE THE PLACE OF YOUR MAN, is a deversification that could only come from the Minneapolis producers. Yes, a guarantee. Janet's CONTROL put them on the map; Jordan Knight will keep Jam and Lewis in the same vicinity as Q. Jones and D. Foster. For Jordan Knight, the guarantees may be greater than even he could have expected. Definitely a great addition to your collection.
