Definitely One Of The Best R&B CDs Ever

Every song on this CD is good. The songs cover different aspects of emotion, from sadness ("til i get over you"), to determination ("you should be mine"), to love ("the only one for me"), and even death ("when the chariot comes"). "Anytime" is a one time number one asking, "Do I ever cross your mind? Anytime? I miss you!"
A must have if you love R&B!

Not on a Par With "Moon Safari"

I had high hopes for this CD, but I've concluded that except for a few tracks, it is basically unlistenable. The music works fine as soundtrack music, but like most soundtrack music, it does not stand up well on its own. The best soundtracks are well put together compilations of original or older material (for example: Dead Man Walking, Passion Fish, Big Night). This CD is basically a soundtrack that sounds like a soundtrack; not something that is at all interesting to listen to on its own.

A solid offering for a first CD

What can I say, I have watched both versions of American Idol and Clay was probably the best performer in my opinion between both shows. Although I thoroughly enjoy listening to this CD, it is a tad disappointing in that it doesn't allow Clay to showcase his showstopping voice. His rendition of bridge over troubled water gave me goosebumps. Nevertheless, I really do like this CD and believe it offers some good music. Invisible is good, and I will carry you and the way are also pretty solid. The rest of the tracks are decent and provide a decent variety of sound and lyric. This is a great CD seeing that it is Clay's first and hopefully he will be able to improve on this and offer an even better second album.

Title: Spirit
Label: RCA
Artist: John Denver
Rating: 5/5

This music genuinely arouses emotions from deep within.

Sometimes you can feel John Denver's Spirit right within you own heart as you listen and may even start to relate his feelings/meanings/passion for what he's singing to something that has happened to you in your lifetime. As a composer and lyricist myself, I have been inspired for years by John Denver. It is my hope that he also inspires you when you listen to this wonderful set of music, sung only the way J.D. can sing them.
