The songwriter who made a bundle of Vanessa Williams

"It's a shame that Tonio K. was never recognised for this songwriting skills until he gave up recording. He produced several smart, snappy songs that all died lonely deaths in the back bins. He once said that he made more cash off that Grammy-winning song for Vanessa Williams (in the early 1990s) than he did off his entire recording career. Sonically interesting (but you can hear T-Bone Burnett all over the place, even when he isn't there) but it's the lyrics that work best. It's dated now, but definitely still worth the money."
Not just for Christians anymore!

"Despite being pigeonholed as a Christian artist, Tonio uses a bigger palette than most artists of the genre. This is a great album, loaded with smart pop songs (I still don't know why "What Women Want" never got airplay). If this were anybody else, the album would rate five stars -- but since Tonio's earlier 'Life in the Foodchain' and 'Amerika' get that honor..."
Another winner for Tonio K

"Quite toned down from Life in the Foodchain, this CD expands on Tonio K's talents. The harmony was beauiful and there were several (Without Love) that had me singing along. I have always admired this performer; he takes chances with the music he writes, and it's not quite mainstream, which is probably why I like it so much. I once owned this LP but my turntable isn't reliable anymore so I'm slowly replacing my Tonio K LPs with CDs. Everything he does is good, a lot of wry humor and definite anti-establishment attitude! This is one of the best in my opinion. A must buy if you're looking for something new!"
