I am a huge Steve Cole fan and eagerly waited for his new album. It's great to see an artist grow and develop from project to project rather than just doing new albums that sound like all the others. This album has it all - awesome sax tracks with that distinctive Cole sound, great writing and catchy hooks, and who knew that Steve was such a fantastic producer! This CD is well worth a careful listen -- there's truly something for everyone here, yet I find that I'm listening straight through every track on the CD - something I haven't done on other CDs in a long time. Yes, it sounds a bit different than his previous records, but it is undeniably the Steve Cole that we all love and I am blown away by it!

I first heard the tune Serenity on Jazztrax.com and I decided to check out the CD. Yes, this is a very different sound than we have grown used to from Steve Cole. He says that his musical tastes and influences have changed and that is obviously reflected in the music on Spin. Most of the tunes have an acoustic pop/country flair that some of Steve's fans may not find to their liking at all. However, an artist needs room to grow and change, so perhaps as fans we can give the music on Spin a chance to grow on us. By the way, the track Serenity,and the hidden track 30 seconds after the end of Confounded, are perfect examples of Smooth Jazz Chill. They are my favorites on the CD!

I got this CD expecting to hear that Chi-town funk that is Steve's trademark sound. Its needless to say I was shocked upon hearing the first track. This is a true departure from the music that Steve's fans are used to hearing, and is actually reminiscent of Dave Koz's efforts on his "Off The Beaten Path" release. This is somewhat of a jazz-pop album, not the jazz-r&b he's known for.

After getting over my initial shock, I managed to pay closer attention to what I feel his intentions were, and, well, the only thing I can say is that he remained true to whatever he was doing. :-/

I'm somewhat disappointed, because the little musical interludes he's known for are missing from this CD, with the exception of one constant: he still maintained the two-part final track he's known for that fades in and out.

Some of his fans may take some comfort in tracks 10 and 7, since they seem to hint at his more familiar musicial style, but then again, all they really do is hint, and leave the listener wanting what they didn't get this time around. I will say though that track 5 (dedicated no doubt to his wife) is a beautiful ballad-like instrumental perfect for relaxation.

Overall, I would say this CD is simply "OK," and for a CD by Steve Cole, that isn't the best assessment. My advice to any new listener wanting to get into his music is to pick up his first three albums, to familiarize themself with what he SHOULD sound like, perhaps skip this one, and hope and pray that he returns to what made us adore his music so much to begin with.

I love this album! It's the best Steve Cole album yet. It's a real toe tapper - upbeat, with a great sound. I have all of Steve's albums and this one is my favorite. The first four songs gets your toes tapping and chases away the blues. The next song - "A letter to Laura" soothes the listener with a mellow love song and is followed by more fast paced jazzy songs. This is just a great album. Way to go Steve!

Wow, I also shared the anticipation of cruising down Lake Shore Drive, (Or Sheridan Rd. in the NorthShore) listening to the SMOOOOOTH sounds of Steve Cole. I can listen to "Stay awhile","Love Letter","Where the Night Begins"..etc all night long with the top down. Unfortunately, this album is all but smooth, it's too folksy, countryish..

On first listen, I was not impressed after being spoilt rotten by Steve's first 3 albums, but after a couple of listens I am hooked !!

To you good folks giving poor old Steve Cole just one star, I urge you to listen to it a few times. DEFINATELY a grower !

I'm arriving late to the world of Steve Cole, and I have been giving the entire album heavy play. My only other purchased album of his was going back into his catalog for "NY LA," which did not hold much appeal for me. However, the rotation of "Thursday" and the title track "Spin" on Sirius/XM's Watercolors provided the hook for my deeper exploration of the rest of "Spin," and it ranks as one of those albums that I can easily play from start to finish without even considering skipping over a track. Cole's fans may cringe at my comps for this album, but I dare say that if you enjoy the sax and style of Mindi Abair or Candy Dulfur, then you may find as much listening pleasure with "Spin" as I have. And make sure to let "Confounded" track beyond the 5:23 mark.

I'm a big fan of Steve Cole and I've always admired musicians who takes risks by doing something different. This CD is different from Steve's usual R&B style to a pop/country style. At first I was surprised when I listened to this CD, but I loved every minute of it!

My favorite songs on the CD include: Thursday, The Real Me, Spin, & A Letter To Laura.

It's nice to hear something different from Steve Cole for a change. I believe it makes him a better musician than he is. Good job, Steve!
