He had quite a successful run during the late eighties with hits charting on Billboard charts such as “A Zillion Kisses,” “A Shoulder To Cry On,” “I’ll Be Your Everything,” and Turn On The Radio. However, he was more successful behind the scenes as he became one of the most successful recording artists who excelled as record executive.  But, despite his stint behind the record, he was able to release few albums intended maybe to satisfy his loyal fans.

Reminisce his early hit with “I’ll Be Your Everything” a live performance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l49AwDb4twk.

In this album, you have a compilation of older songs and new songs.  Some of the news songs in this album can be considered as rejects from his previous albums.  The musical vibe of this album is like crossing musical genre’s.  Part of the whole album sound like 80’s pop and some songs sound like a chill out or EDM music.

Listen to “Only My Imagination” in here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=so0es9JIwmc.

Best tracks to listen aside from “A Shoulder To Cry On,” are “Dream Come True (a heavy and pulsating tune,)” Kissing In The Rain (which is like a Gazebo song,) “Only My Imagination (which borrows some refrain from Duran Duran’s Say A Prayer,)”and “Right On Track (which is EDM version of Breakfast Club ditty.)”
Watch fan made video of “Right On Track.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vhn3tK7lIo8.

I say the album is really good for his loyal fans, but for other musical fans, they opt to listen only to the recommended tracks and will not bother to listen to the whole album.  Thus, I rate this record 2.5 stars.

RATING DESCRIPTION
