Didn't quite know what to expect from him as it has been years since he put something out, but what a pleasant suprise! Extremely soulful ballads, beautiful voice and well sung! If you are like me and have nothing with today's poor state of R&B and long to the times when R&B and Soul were REAL, you'll love this album! My lady and me have been listening non-stop to this cd eversince we received it! Even the cover of Luther Vandross's song "If Only For One Night" has been done justice. I actually hate it when people cover such classics from Soul's Greatest as they usually rape it to death ,but this one is a winner! Recommended if you like your music soulful, sensual, smooth and real!
Chris Walker has that distinctive voice that make you take notice of what he's singing. After the first two cd's he released, I was a fan, but after a noticable absence, I thought he had quit the game. With ZONE, he is back in full force and have renewed my faith in this craft. Each song has his stamp of talent and sounds like an upgrade from his past work, which by the way, was just as good. R&B is back to being as smooth as silk and we're glad to have you back on the front lines where you belong, Mr. Walker!
From a man with an incredible voice comes this amazing masterpiece! Just listen! This album is filled with ballads, eloquently written and produced, with smooth lyrics and melodies that capture the heart and pierce the soul. The style and poetic nature of these songs wrap you in "love"...the ups and downs; the ins and outs of love. If you are not able to identify with this CD, check your pulse...You may be flat-lining.
The things that stand out while listening to Chris' music are the arrangement of the songs, as well as his melodic voice. His vocal quality, intonation and clarity are complimented by the music, perfectly. He glides over the notes with his rich, extraordinary voice, captivating the listener. There is no comparison.
This CD contains 12 of the most exceptional tracks your ears will hear, and includes the single "I Got That Love", which has been gracing the airwaves for a few months, now. It's difficult for me to choose personal favorites...Each song touches the heart in a special way, and I love them all!
"ZONE"!!! That's exactly where Chris Walker puts you...in a distinguished and distinctive musical love zone! This project exudes depth and quality throughout. Allow this CD to permeate your soul...That's what it was designed to do. Chris' music is a refreshing and welcome addition to Urban Radio Programming, and to the ears of music lovers everywhere! "Zone" is a must have for your music collection.
This cd is wonderful! I would recommend it if you really want to hear music that you don't have to skip a track, I tried to figure out what my favorite song, I guess it would be If Only For Night, I'm very satisfied, because Chris really has beautful voice, and it is well worth the money! I'm sure you will enjoy every track! I have 2 other friends that heard it a bought it also...
OMG. Chris Walker is definitely back!! His 1st and 2nd cds were awesome, but with his 3rd cd, he seemed off track and lost. With this 4th cd, he's back. If you enjoy ballads, well written lyrics, composition, arrangement, and vocals, purchase this cd.
