"Before I proceed to further this review, allow me to tell you that I'm not too big a pop fan. I dispise of Backstreet Boys, NSync stinks, O-Town was formed right before our eyes on TV, and Youngstown...well screw em, there is nothing that separates them from any other group in the boy band mania. Enough about the bands I dislike, I shall move on to why C Note's "Different Kind of Love" is a great disc. Unlike your typical boy band album, C Note does not only have dance pop. Matter of fact, there is hardly ANY dance pop in C Note's music. Their songs vary in beats, and do not hold the similar "teen pop" beat that Backstreet Boys, NSync, and the like carry. C Note also has diversity; "Wait Till I Get Home" is a perfect song to get down to, fast paced and laced with a great bass line and an urban texture, "I Like" is a smooth R&B tune, "My Heart Belongs To You", and "Spanish Fly" have strong Latin grooves and hip hop influences(Spanish Fly even has a little rap), "A Tear Or Two" reminds me of something that Motown might release, and "Feels So Good" is pretty much your typical pop tune. C Note has lush harmonies, outstanding vocals, and smooth transitions. All these songs are unique in their own way, and none are trite. They don't all sound the same, and if you listen carefully, there is something for everybody, of all generations. C Note is not just limited to teen pop, and I hate the fact that people would even stereotype them as such; their expressions are very original, and the lyrics are more mature than your average pop group. I could go on and on and on about how C Note is great, and should have gotten much further along than they did. I think it was a fault in the marketing - the corperates who helped them get where they got are now helping other groups, and since C Note popped up in the wave of boy bands, they got caught up in the mumble jumble and never quite got out. It really is a shame, and I think C Note should have furthered their career more, but I guess they had enough. The last thing I have to say is, if you ever see "Different Kind of Love" out anywhere, go check it out. Try to erase all stereotypes you have, and if you're an open minded person, you'll be sure to enjoy it."
C Note is alright

"I bought a copy of this cd and listened to it as soon as I got home. It wasn't as good as I hoped, but I didn't stop listening to it after the first time. I personally prefer the sound that is coming out of Europe lately. This one was just a touch too urban for my tastes. You may differ. The upbeat latin mix did make me smile."
Please Cash This Note Before It's Too Late

"Coming from the same hit factory that produced the Backstreet Boys and N'Sync, C-Note proves that the midas touch doesn't tricke down to other boy bands that easily. Having lived in Orlando during this band's conception, I can easily tell you that the producers for this band were in a hurry to get this album in during the Latin Boom that took over the summer of 1999.I met a two members of the band after a backstage concert at a DisneyWorld club where they were performing with an all-girl band called "Innosense". While they were trying to be sociable with those who crossed their paths, I knew from looking at their performance that they were no Backstreet Boys or N'Sync. It's a shame because I feel that one of them has potential talent, while the others serve as the eyecandy that generate sales among naive teenage girls.The album, which mixes pop with a bit of Latin, is a change from the albums usually coming out of Borelando, excuse me, Orlando. While other upcoming boy bands such as O-Town and Youngstown want to cash in during the boy-band mania sweeping the country, C-Note already had their chance, and failed miserably in trying to capture a hold of the market. This album will probably appear to multi-ethnic teens in such markets as Miami and Los Angeles, however they won't get the the large Anglo market like their rival bands from Orlando. Their songs lack the dance-laden tracks that Backstreet Boys and N'Sync are well known for.It wouldn't be no surprise if I see the members of this band at a summer camp where other failed teenage ventures meet to discuss their failures. Maybe they will bump into Jordan Knight and Joey McIntyre while waiting on line. Truly a sad, and disastrous debut!"
