Wildest Dreams is John Berry's first album since 1996's Faces, which failed to go gold despite a No. 1 country single, "She's Taken a Shine." He's got a new label, Lyric Street, and a new producer, Mark Spiro, best known for his work with Lila McCann. Fortunately, Berry's soaring tenor voice is intact. Unfortunately, his choice of material still has more in common with Christopher Cross and Phil Collins (whose "You'll Be in My Heart" receives a typically schmaltzy cover here) than with anything identifiable as country music. A tender song like "Where Would I Be" would fit right in on soft-pop or contemporary-Christian radio. But the country single "Power Windows" attempts to dress up a hopelessly contrived lyric with weightless '70s rock guitars. --Rick Mitchell

"I've enjoyed all of John Berry's past records, but he lost me on this one. The musical sound is very different from his others -- it's not an improvement, either! I hope he thinks about what he wants to do with his career. He hasn't had a hit record in a long time; this type of album won't change that!"
Too bad you can't just buy the single

"I love the single from this album, "Power Windows." But it's not available as a cassette single so I bought the whole album. What a waste! None of the other songs are as good as that one. There are too many slow, uninteresting songs, so the album sounds like something you could fall asleep too. But "Power Windows" is great."
