"Oleta Adams is like few other vocalists. It never fails but exterme talent and musical integrity are never fully appreciated. I first met Oleta in 1989 at a club in Dallas. She was performing at a friends birthday party. At this time she was relatively unknown outside of Kansas City. I knew upon listening to her that she was special. Time passed and suddenly she has a mojor hit with "Get Here". From that moment I have folled her every musical step. Movin' On shows that great artist can be slowed but not stopped. This CD has her skill shine above industry producers with vocals, keyboard playing and composing. "New Star" and "This is Real" are classic songs both lyrically and vocally. I have yet to hear an R&B artist articulate the soul and wholesomeness that comes from Adams' work. This CD does have a bit of useless producer polish that doesn't add to the vibe. Nevertheless, she overcomes it all; As she has in performance and on other recordings. Popular or not, I hope her music continues to flow to us true fans. Peace."
