Michael Bolton is a great artist. I like Bolton. I am a fan. Michael's soul shines through his songs that he birthed, when he sings those originals of his it is - magical - almost ethereal. His lyrics, his music and his voice they are so well put together - the fusion is awesome. The mixture melds and flows catapulting his songs like shooting stars heading straight for the sky. You want to know why we are above the animals? Buy Bolton CDs and enjoy being a romantic human being and listen to him alone or with someone special.

This was my first CD of Michael Bolton and that CD got me hooked and I have never gotten offline. As Michael Bolton grew he became better and better, now his songs are jet propelled. Now he has been burnt a few times by life and those life experiences he injects into his original songs.

you know you used to have this album!!!

Michael Bolton at his heyday. This pretty much marked the end of his AOR days (even tho we hear some with "How Can We Be Lovers" and "You Wouldn't Know Love) and also the album that catapulted him into the league of AC superstardom. At this point, Bolton was fresh and actually still somewhat cool. The album scored five top 40 hits for him, including his first #1 single, "How Am I Supposed To Live Without You" which was also a huge hit for the late Laura Branigan a few years earlier, but Bolton was the songwriter. We also got a hard rocking side of Michael with the top 5 "How Can We Be Lovers", which actually scored MTV airplay, and MTV usually shunned Bolton's videos.

This album and "The Hunger" are the only Michael Bolton cd's you need in your collection, after this album, it was all downhill as Bolton became the AC artist nobody could stand.

First off I like Bolton's early work in the late 70's to mid 80's.Bolton's first albums Blackjack 1979, Worlds Apart 1980, Michael Bolton 1983, and Everybody's Crazy 1985 were all pretty good melodic rockers, but this is the end.Soul provider is the beginning of a soul failure.

The only good songs on here are How can we be Lovers and You wouldn't know Love.These songs have a catchy chorus and rock somewhat.The rest of the album is garbage.

Why did you sell out Bolton? It's such a shame what could of been.If Bolton stayed on the melodic metal/rock path he would be a rocker still to this day and most likely a dam good one like he was in the early to mid 80's.

It's a cryin shame!

The reviews for this CD seem to be split between those who liked the "rocker" Michael Bolton before he went AC, and those who think he was better after he went AC. Obviously, he was far more succesful after going AC. The CD previous to this one, "The Hunger", is also a good CD and it truly served as a transition from hair metal rocker to AC balladeer.

This CD is the first big step into the AC category, with really good results. This CD gave him his first #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 ("How Am I Supposed to Live Without You") as well as two other Top 10 hits ("How Can We be Lovers" - #3 and "When I'm Back on my Feet Again" - #7) a top 20 hit ("Soul Provider" - #17) and a fifth single to squeak into the Top 40 ("Georgia on my Mind" - #36).

I was in my first relationship when this CD came out, and we used to love to put this CD on for romantic evenings. My favorite song on the CD is "When I'm Back on my Feet Again", which is very beautiful. Other songs that I like are "Soul Provider" and "Stand Up for Love", which I think should have been the 5th single instead of "Georgia on my Mind".

Although Michael co-wrote the song, I prefer Laura Branigan's version of "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You". Similarly, Michael co-wrote "You Wouldn't Know Love", but I prefer Cher's cover version from her "Heart of Stone" CD. The duet with Suzie Benson, "From Now On", is probably the weakest track. With all of the people he could have sung a duet with, why pick this unknown?

Anyway, even though I like some songs more than others, in my opinion, this is Michael's best studio album. Recommended.

Soul Provider includes the essence of adult pop hard rock that can easily rival Richard Marx, Bryan Adams, John Waite and Peter Cetera. His husky high-tone voice takes a little bit of time to sink in. But once captivated you will love his voice for the rest of your life. It has less hard-edged songs than previous album, The Hunger. Yet is still enjoyable for melodic pop hard rock fans. Title track Soul Provider and Georgia On My Mind truly show his turning point from hard rocker Bolton to soul searcher Bolton. It's Only My Heart and How Can We Be Lovers are excellent pop hard rock as if taken from Reckless or Repeat Offender. You Wouldnft Know Love starts from Bon Jovi like heavy-riff and is an excellent pop rocker enabling the next excellent ballad When I Am Back On My Feet Again to sound even more brilliant. How I Am Supposed To Live Without You is an excellent self-cover of 1983 Laura Branigam hit originally written by Bolton.

Recommended for adult pop rock fans that also love Foreigner, Survivor, Starship and Bryan Adams.
