CD Reviews

A soulful voice, and wonderful writing
Goobie Doober | New York, NY | 01/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you think the radio consists of sappy, bubble-gummy pop -- and you're right! -- then pick up this cd and listen to Daniel Cartier's genuine music, full of soul, and with the most brilliant writing there is to music. After you are completely captured by his voice, you will "feel" and love the instrumental music underneath.A true musical genius Daniel Cartier is, this cd, as well as his first one, are absolute musts to anyone who appreciates quality, beautiful, rockin' music!"
A Gem of an Album
Goobie Doober | 10/15/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album was released by Elton John's Rocket Records prior to the reorganization of Polygram's labels, and unfortunately didn't receive the marketing and promotion that it should have. It's a shame too, because it's full of great music. "Avenue A" is a wonderful anthem for anyone who's ever lived in the East Village of NYC. "Languished Prayers" and "Help Me to Love Myself" are beautiful ballads worthy of comparisons to Michael Stipe and Paul McCartney; and Cartier's emotional verbal swells not unlike those of Roy Orbison. I'm surprised that Elton John didn't take the opportunity to cover "Help Me to Love Myself" since it's the kind of song he does well, and it would have been a hit for him. Actually, there are a lot of songs on this album that other recording artists could do justice. This is music that is perfect for listening to late at night after you've come home alone with a sad heart and feel time is passing you by. Several of these songs would be great for movie soundtracks. If you already have and like this album, you should also check out Cartier's follow-up, self-produced album, "Wide Outside." I think you can order it off his web site."
One of the most versatile new singer/songwriters around.

"I think it's really sad that the first two reviews on Daniel's album seem to be personal vendettas. Anyone who has even been remotely conscience in the East Village in the past two or three years knows his unmistakeable look and sound. This album is absolutely amazing. I've seen him perform live many times and this album captures that energy. Daniel draws from a wide variety of inspirations: folk, rock, gospel. His voice has a wide range octave-wise, as well as stylistically. I can't think of another male singer (besides David Bowie) who can perform such vocal acrobatics. The songs themselves are wonderful vinettes of east village bohemian life. I'm amazed (and dismayed) that a major record label hasn't discovered him yet. However, if hard work and dedication pays off, I'm sure Daniel will climb to the top --- he's got the songwriting/singing/performing talent to back him yourself a favor and buy this CD (and get his Subway Sessions also for the complete Cartier package). PEACE."
