As an artist myself I understand when one feels the need to stretch musically, but as a listener I sometimes long for the "good old songs". All the releases Michael has sung have been outstanding. If it's not his great songwriting, it's his beautiful baritone voice or his skilled guitar playing or his marvelous interpretation that will eventually get you and this CD rings true on ALL of the aforementioned. There is a beauty and simplicity and caring for the music that too often is lost today. Mr. Johnson is a craftsman and this recording proudly displays that craft.

Mr. Johnson's favorite themes center around love lost in some form or love longing and he presents it oh so well on the opener "April Fool". One way a song endears me is if I can relate and "My Favorite Lies" I can relate (I think you will as well). "One Mile Apart" goes south of the border with a quaint story/duet that paints the picture that you will appreciate. You can continue to hear a little of the old MJ (For All You Mad Musicians, There Is A Life) in the next five songs then we get to one of the favs I've heard Mr. Johnson perform but never record that he is calling "SoSo" (I won't spoil it for you by saying anything else about it) but let me tell you, it's one of the best parodies you'll ever hear. This brings me to the last two songs on the CD.

"The Day I'm Over You" (and the previously mentioned) April Fool) are my favs. Songwriters take note. Singers take note. Performers take note. ANYBODY THAT LOVES MUSIC, take note. "The Day I'm Over You" brought tears to my heart (yes Michael you can use that in a song if you'd like). It's about the closest thing you can come to a perfect song.

Have had this cd album bought from Amazon for about 5 days already. First thing when I opened up the box to get to the cd was how 'proud' it was to see Michael's cd get the attention this great artist deserves! The cd case came within a slip-on thin cardboard piece. The lyrics and pictures and photos inside and on the outer cover makes this cd something special...he got the attention and $$ from Red House Records, Inc that he deserves! Bravo, Red House Records, Inc.!!!

I would associate the song style this album has like going back to his early 1970s album, For All You Mad Musicians... also most of the songs on this album are written by Hugh Prestwood (which some fans may or may not like).

The pacing on this album is slow and deliberate, but keeps one's attention (mine at least). I think the one song that may be a *big hit* on the Country List would be 'Learning How to Love', a mesmerizing guitar riff that repeats throughout the song, with lyrics so meaningful.

His One Mile Apart duet with his long lost daughter...I find it better and a little 'happier' in terms of how it's sung than the previous version back in the late 1990s.

Emilio, Looking for Rainbows, and How Do You Know What You Know... these may be potential hits also..especially, How Do You Know What You Know.

His musicians that accompany him on the songs are good, and add great texture to the songs...this is not a 'stripped' version of songs like the "Then and Now' cd. The sonics/mixing is very good, imaging is very good...Way better than the Live At the Bluebird (but that was a live version, so I acknowledge the sonics not being as good).

The first night I listened to this album, I was NOT excited...it was like when I heard his 1986 album, Wings...

This one just keeps getting better. It seemed almost too laid back on first listen, but the more I played it, the more I've come to enjoy it. April Fool is a great song! Others are Learning How to Love; The Day I'm Over You; How Do You Know What You Know; the next tier is: My Favorite Lies; One Mile Apart, Emilio, Kiss Me Goodbye. The only songs that I find to be out of place are SoSo and Gee I'm Glad I Worried About That. They would be good for perhaps a show tune CD, but they sort of blemish the mood of this wonderful CD. Encourage MJ to release more soon. Buy it!!!

I've been following MJ for 25 years or so, have seen him quite a few times though not recently, and seem to always gravitate back to his music. This disc is just great - adult very easy listening, and I don't mean that in a faint praise way. It's enjoyable music with excellent production (for those of us listening to older recordings this is a revelation for the quality) and a nice pace. More, please!

This album is fabulous, especially the songs written by Michael Johnson and by Hugh Prestwood. It reminds me of Michael Johnson's best songs of the past. If you can see him in concert, don't miss it. He sounds just as great in concert as on the CD.

This cd is marvelous! "Kiss Me Goodbye" is so touching; I plan to play it at my wedding next October:) I have been waiting for Michael to record "So So" for many years; so glad he finally did!

I have been a fan of Michael's since the late 1970s. At the time, I was a student at Mankato State University, heard his infamous "Bluer Than Blue", and began collecting his previous recordings.

Years later, around 1998, I saw Michael perform at a Riverfest concert in Chattanooga, TN. It was an extremely hot day, but I will never forget Michael's performance. So personal, and friendly!

I have had the good fortune of seeing MJ perform several times since then, and consider him a friend. His music has been such a wonderful influence in my life. Always will be.
