"I had never even heard of Adam Pascal before January 7 of this year, the same date I went to see the traveling company of AIDA. Granted, Adam Pascal was /not/ our Radames, but, after seeing the production, I was in LOVE with AIDA. I had already purchased the AIDA soundtrack, and I had received the RENT soundtrack on Christmas. And yet I still had no clue who he was.It didn't take long for me to fall in love, though. After listening to AIDA nonstop for about a week, I realized that the voice of Radames was highly familiar, yet I couldn't put my finger upon where I'd heard it before. Later that day, I was listening to "One Song Glory" from RENT, when it just hit me -- That's where I'd heard his voice before!Two weeks later, I was the proud owner of his cd, Model Prisoner.His voice is rough and soulful, and yet extremely relaxing at the same time. I've never heard anyone with as wonderful a voice as Adam. Adam Pascal is definitely my favorite singer, and I am very picky about singers. Ewan McGregor -- even though he's technically not a singer -- was my favorite singer for nearly two years before I heard Adam's gorgous voice. And now I can have an actual singer topping my list, instead of an actor with an amazing voice.I highly recommend this cd. And I recommend the AIDA and RENT soundtracks, which also feature his beautiful voice. I love Adam Pascal!"
Nothing sounds as sweet as this...

"There exists no words in the free world that can truly describe the beauty of Adam Pascal's voice :) There's something powerful and haunting in his voice that leaves you wanting more. And of course, for all you RENTheads, Adam's voice is as beautiful and distinctly "Adam" as it is on the RENT soundtrack - and we all know how GOOD he sounds on that!Model Prisoner is a brilliant CD - no doubt about it. I bought it as soon as it came out and I was not disappointed. The CD is highly personal, as you will be able to tell through the lyrics of each song. My favorites are "Liken A Razor", "Every Time Around", "The Time It Takes To Fall", "The One That Got Away", etc... Well, okay, I LOVE them all. There's a little bit of everything for everyone.At first I had expected something more like MUTE or APB - that sort of hard rock, grungy guitar type sound. But this CD is nothing like that. It's more folksy, more upbeat. But despite the initial shock, I fell in love with the CD immediately. BUY THIS CD. If you love Adam, you'll love this!"
Adam Pascal's Model Prisoner Rocks Hard

"Adam Pascal was once described to me as being able to turn on men, women, and stationary objects if he wanted to. Pascal's compositions and voice echo a deep emotional urge which is both sexy and revealing. He strikes a chord that reaches inside, with a sound that is all at once emotional and roughly beautiful. It is refreshing to hear such an honest sound from a performer in this age when so much of music seems lacking of just that. It reminds one of early Springsteen, writing with his guitar. The thoughts are clearly connected to Pascal's own experiences, and through his honesty and vulnerability, the listener goes on a journey with him through the album. I very much look forward to hearing more from him in the near future."
