One of the best CDs I've bought in a good long while,
This review is from: Gold (Audio CD)
Very rarely do I buy a CD after hearing just one song off the album. I usually have a 3 song rule; if I hear 3 songs & like all of them, then I'll buy it. Late one night I couldn't sleep so I was watching MTV & they showed his video for "New York, New York" and I loved the song. A couple days later I bought the album, but was concerned that I'd hate everything else. I couldn't have been more wrong. It is absolutely amazing. His voice, lyrics & musicality are just supurb. It's few and far between that I'll buy an album and listen to it non-stop, and this is one of them. If he doesn't become a household name soon, then a lot of people will be missing out on talent that comes along so infrequently. With all the bubblegum crap that's out there he's a much needed breath of fresh air.
