AMAZING


I knew right away that America had made a mistake when they chose Ruben for the American Idol, and this cd only further proves my point.
On occasion I have purchased cds and have not liked one or two tracks. This is not the case with Measure of a Man, ALL of them are AMAZING!!
I recommend this cd to ANYONE who feels that Clay was cheated out of the AI title he SO deserved!!

Brilliant !!!


I first heard this album when it was released way back then courtesy of my older hippy brother. Back then I was into AC/DC, Black Sabbath etc. This blew me away......I had never heard any kind of country/bluegrass till then and I subsequently converted many of my friends. I went through three copies of it on record, mainly due to drunken parties (or rather, drunken friends at the parties...!!!) and now I have just purchased my second CD. I love this album...I still get that chill up my backbone when I play it, even after hundreds of listens...not many albums can do that!!!

Dayum!


Dayum! Initially, I blew her off, along with the rest of American Idol participants, but, out there is a whole world full of 'unknown' singers who deserve more of a chance to record and release their artistic efforts than 80% of the undeserving talentless that get opportunities left and right in the business. Kelly's cd is awesome, with a fantastic voice showcased throughout. She does not disappoint. "Miss Independent" should be a huge hit. Kelly may not even know of these singers from the past, and they may not have influenced her vocal style directly, but when she sings, she conjures up memories of Dusty Springfield, Gayle McCormick, Bobbie Gentry, Merilee Rush - all great vocalists. Kelly's her own girl though, and sure to travel a long road of success with her vocal gift and the perfect band to back her. You go Kelly!

Excellent! Hot dance hits and other songs by Britney!


After hearing this album, I was just blown away! This has to be one of the strongest greatest hits albums of recent years! It's so heavily pumped in the music, beats and rhythms! Even Toxic gives Baby One More Time some tight competition! It's like a shift from her fun pop at first to her more sexier and mature numbers later. One high-energy song after next the first 6 songs! I thought that she would put Baby One More Time first, but she pushed that to track 8. That My Prerogative gets more exciting after every listen. And there's no denying the 7 Max Martin songs on here, proving his dominance of hits in the late '90s to 2001. And Neptunes and Bloodshy and Avant were good with updating her sound. SLave For U, Boys, Overprotected, You Drive Me Crazy, Sometimes (which I still love), Stronger and others I still love. This is bound to be the Steve Miller Band greatest hits success for the 21st century, as people will keep buying and buying it after wearing the last copy. Miller's album still sells strong and I'm sure it will be the same for Britney. Britney's singing got better between albums 2 and 4. She's just comfortable with these pop dance numbers. Track 16 I like, but track 17 I don't of the new songs, but that's a minor flaw in an otherwise phenomenal album. Will be potential Christmas gifts for anybody in December!!!!!!
