This CD is not what you'd expect from the leader of the "Soul Patrol" MCA Records wanted a country artist, so they "country-fied" Taylor's music! If you want the type of music you heard on American Idol, you might be a little disappointed. If you want some country music with a "soul flair" you will love it! Once you give it a chance, it will grow on you. The best song is "Places". The worst thing is that "Do I Make You Proud" is not on the CD, there is a coupon for a free download of it though. However, if I wanted it in MP3 format, I would have downloaded the whole CD. I think MCA made the biggest mistake of their entire music career with this album. I can't wait for the new one to come out, and show the REAL Taylor Hicks!! All in all, this is a 4 star CD!
I would recommend this to a friend
