Why isn't Davis Gaines a Superstar?
Elisabeth Cunningham | Las Vegas, Nevada USA | 11/17/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Davis Gaines is NOT a household name! But he should be!! This is one of the greatest voices to ever grace the Broadway Stage, plus he's got the looks and the personality to back it up!! I will never forget the first time I ever heard him sing...Phantom of the Opera at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. That big booming baritone voice filled the entire just took your breath away! (Davis Gaines was the longest running, and many consider the greatest, Phantom of them all.) And, Against the Tide, his first CD does not let you down. Just sit back, get comfortable and let this beautiful voice take you to places you've never been before. For instance, his version of "Music of the Night" while different than the arrangement used in "Phantom" is fresh and sad and uplifting all at once. I loved it! And, "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now/Tennessee Waltz" is just delightful. Who'd have ever thought these two classic songs could have been interwoven in such a fashion? But, my favorite...the one that will bring tears to your eyes from the sheer beauty of Davis Gaines' voice is "Ol Man River" is in a word UNBELIEVABLE!! This man is a treasure, a talent with a voice that only God can give...Get this CD and share the pleasure that fortunate fans of Davis Gaines have been enjoying for years. You'll be happy that you did!"

"very few people can sing like Davis Gaines, and that is what makes this album so GREAT. If everyone could sing like this man, people would not need to buy CDs. The range of Davis Gaines's voice is truly amazing. I find his rendition of Music of the Night, far superior to Michael Crawford's, no wonder he is the actor who has played the part more than any other actor. The true highlight on this album, though, was Ol' Man River. It gave me goosebumps, something that very few singers or songs are able to do. The only other song that I can recall has done that to me was Nessun Dorma, from the 3 Tenors 1st concert CD. I cannot wait to get my hands on the new CD when it is available. Davis Gaines should go down as one of the truly great stars of the American stage."
Awesome Sound

"This CD is moving and tender at times and upbeat at other times. What a range and skill this CD has. Tea for two never sounded this good before! I wanted to float down the river when I listened to Old Man River, but you cannot beat the power and excellence of Music of the Night. This CD does not even begin to capture the glory of listening to Davis Gaines in person but it gets you as close as it can. I recommend it highly, this is a CD and a performer worth checking out over and over again."
