Buy it for "Arianne" alone, but the rest are keepers too

"Kyle Vincent emerged in the late 90's after a long period of dormancy in which he transferred from (unknown) teen idol as lead vocalist of Candy to one of the best pure pop practicioners around. Opening for Barry Manilow gives you a clue as to what he was going for with this CD, but in reality there's more energy and punch to these songs than any of Mr. Manilow's. The lead track "Arianne" is a high water mark for power pop and Kyle's career, supposedly played on hundreds of in-store satellite radios. It's a shame that a song this beautiful should be relegated to Wal-Marts and grocery stores, but at least it's getting some exposure. I would go as far as to say it's the best love song since "Day After Day" (Badfinger). The other tunes consist of snappy co-writes with the likes of Tommy Dunbar and P. Hux, both legends in the world of indie pop, percentage wise resulting in a great album to listen to straight through.Best Tracks:
"Arianne" - Should I rave on any more about this song?
"Wake Me Up" - Another catchy, pure pop song that starts with a '65 Byrds riff and shifts into a more modern groove.
"One More Reason" - Piano-led ballad that highlights Kyle's silky smooth vocals. Best slow track on the record.
"In The Worst Way" - Similar to "Wake Me Up", this song's opening jangly riff is considerably more rocking, and the chorus simply soars like power pop should. Well produced and hooky, this should have hit radio.
"I Used To Love The Girl" - Plaintive, sad lyrics and a hook that holds its own with 70's soft rock like "Lyin Eyes" and "Sister Golden Hair"."
Still Kyle's best solo CD 1993-2003

"8 of 12 songs on this CD are keepers. This is really good melodic pop music. Some of the best I've heard in the last 10 years. A little tinny on the mix, But Kyle was going for that 70's AM pop sound anyway. His new CD "Solitary Road" is also very good but different. More melodic pop but also more introspective and studio experimental. However, the songs on this 1997 CD are stronger overall."

"I can think of only a few singers that have as incredibly beautiful a voice as Kyle Vincent's. This CD will blow you away, not only because of the amazing vocals, but also because the songs are so unique and addicting. I found myself playing this CD over and over again when I first bought it. I would buy any new CD that Kyle makes just to hear that velvety voice. Gives me goose bumps just thinking about it! You must listen!"
