"This is the newest Corey Hart album I have heard in several years. I have always been a big fan of Corey Hart and I'm glad I added this album to my collection. The style of Jade is very much typical of Corey Hart's early albums. He had a good style to begin with and stuck with it. All but one of the songs on the album are written by Corey. There is a duet on the album with Julie Masse called "La-Bas", which is absolutely wonderful. I would definitely recommend this album to Corey Hart fans."
Corey Harts most cohesive collection..

"I've listened to mostly everything Corey's put out
over the years, some ok, some very intense and
personal and always heartfelt, thats why I always
enjoyed his singles throughout the 80's. I was surfing
around music here on Amazon and came across Corey Hart
another 80's music fixture that became a videostar thanks to the folks from MTV land. Corey Hart is
more than what they sold him off as, a kind of pin-up
boy pop rocker. He knows how to write good pop songs, and
his ballads really worked but he knew what he wanted to do and this, his newest addition, as well as 1996(COREY HART) are by far his most
cohesive and enjoyable collections of his career. I had
completely lost track of him during the 90's? I
guess like me he is getting older (just about to
hit the big 40) and he is writing more about his
family and life. If radio and programmers in general
had listened to some of this they would have given
him another chance. Songs such as "Jade", "Without you",
the back to back beauties "Reconcile" and "Above the
trees" showcase a much more mature and reflective
adult singer-songwriter musician who has something important
to say and he still likes to rock out, he reminds me
at times of John Bon Jovi's singing style but Corey
is his own style for sure. This is a very enjoyable
addition to his collection, lets hope he gets back
in the studio soon. Corey is his own vision, not something thought up by the likes that create our illustrious
star maker machinery boy bands of the 90's who sing and dance
to fill the big guys pockets?? We've come a long way! ha"

"I just bought this album, about 2 hours ago. Already, I'm playing this for a 3rd time!. While I have often admired and enjoyed Cory's music, I've never considered purchasing one of his solo albums, other than a compilation of his 1980's singles output. This is a very fine album, beautifully packaged with stunning photographs of Cory and includes lyrics to all tracks (He wrote 11 of the 12 tracks with the exception of "La Bas" penned by Jean Jacques Goldman). It's apparent that over the years, Cory has matured becoming a more provocative and emotive vocalist as well as personal songwriter. On this recent offering, there appears to be an intelligent continuity and flow that starts with the uptempo rocker "Let It Flow" that weaves from track to track until the poignant "Everytime You Smile" quietly closes the collection. Cory produced the album, which reflects his new found maturity and evolution as a visionary artist and songwriter...He appears more relaxed in his vocal style in contrast to his 1983 breakout "First Offense," when Hart posed as an 80's pinup "MTV" rocker and "hartthrob." The standout track on "Jade" is a duet with Julie Masse entitled "La-Bas," which beautifully blends, melts, caresses the soul. The sound is reminiscent of Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry, that would successfully serve as background music for any foreign love story...It is impeccably sung in French..."Jade" is a runaway triumph, a precious gem, in the catalog from the Canadian artist, who has never received the accolades he clearly deserves. It is worth seeking out."
