Finally got Taylor Hicks' debut album last night, I've got to say it's absolutely amazing. In his interviews before the album, he said that the music is going to be Cajan meets soul meets hip sounds, the album sure lived up to that. It's definitely what I expected from him based on his Amierican Idol performance, and a little bit more.
The album is full of fun and sparkles. The first single The Runaround carries Hicks' signature personality, you can literally visualize his goofy dance moves while listening. It's upbeat and easy listen. It followed by The CD concludes with The Right Place, which was originally written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance for Ray Charles to record before his death. It showcase his voice perfectly, which reminds me one of his best performance on AI Season 5, You Are So Beautiful.
