U TURN


This is the Brian Mcknight that I love to listen to.
1.All Night Long - Upbeat song with Nelly
2.Back Seat (Getting Down)- Kind of mid-tempo..talks about in the back seat getting down if you know what he means.
3.Try Our Love Again - kind of sounds like the music from an old Janet Jackson and Dave Hollister song mixed. One of my favorites.
4.Where Do We Go From Here - mid-tempo..When him and his girl break up.
5.Been So Long - faster than usual Brian. Not a stand out track
6.Good Enough - GREAT SONG. It features Joe, Carl Thomas, Tyrese, and Tank on this song. MY FAVORITE.
7.Someday, Someway, Somehow- good slow Brian Mcknight music. Good song
8.For the Rest of My Life- slow. Good Song
9.If It Was Cool - too upbeat for a Brian Mcknight song
10. U Turn - Upbeat song with Fabolous
11.So Sorry - slow Good song
12.One of the Ones Who Did - this is a song that talks about the war. Being right with Jesus and it features Kirk Franklin. Great Song
Overall i loved this album. There are probably just 2 songs that didnt appeal to me. GO BUY IT.

friendship and magic at work


Crop Circles has been plugged into the CD drive of my laptop for several weeks now. The music both sooths and excites at the same time. Davey has long been a master at the acoustic guitar and has an incredible talent for utilizing all of the sounds a guitar can make.
On this disc, he often makes the percussive scratching of the strings and the harmonic overtones of the guitar's vibrations reverberate along with the primary line that he's playing to sound like several guitars being played at one time. Take all of that talent and add the musical joy and passion that both Davey and John bring to every project they are involved with, and the musical stew that they cook up can only be described as the symmetry of friendship at work (and play).
This is one disc that should definitely be listened to through headphones or turned up loud on the stereo. They make acoustic guitars sound both otherworldly and of the moment at the same time. Davey's Scottish influences, and John's unique blend of country, blues and pop are a must-hear for both the practicing musician and the fan alike.
Definitely on my "desert island" list. What makes it even more enjoyable for me is that I had the pleasure of meeting them recently and they are as nice as they are talented.
The "good guys" win! Thanks Davey and John:-)!

Overstatement


This is good but not great. You would be pleased to hear it playing in the background and have it in your collection. The voice of David Gray is what adds the texture to this work. His voice has the strength of Simply Red, the pace of Dylan, and only approaches (but in a valiant attempt) the qualities of Van Morrison. The songs flow well together; however, the weakness is reliance on canned instrumental music and lyrics that are great in some songs and average in others. I especially enjoyed #7, White Ladder, with that touch of static hiss, who would have thought we would miss vinyl with all of its drawbacks. A final note to all you critics out there: the mood of an album is often set by the attitude you bring to an album, White Ladder may have a reflective pace but that doesn't mean it is meant to have a feeling of melancholy.
