Ok, lets get one thing out of the way first, the cover is a big mistake, not because it made a lot of narrow minded people uncomfortable in seeing a man in a dress, but because it deflected the point of interest away from the brilliant songs held within the cover. Kevin is one of those rare artists who you know whenever he decides to record a song, he's going to put his heart and soul completely into it and bring his wonderful emotive voice to the very front of the track. Sadly, his last solo record (The Wanderer) didnt have the songs to match the voice, this time the songs and the singer compliment each other perfectly. Only Kevin could get away with singing so many wonderful tracks, so well known by other more famous artists and make each and everyone one of them his own. The moment his spoken fragmented intro appears on "The Greatest Love Of All, the listener knows he is listening to a man who truly beleives in what he is singing. Kevins past problems have been well documented and it is these past struggles that can be heard in every line and phrasing throughout every track. One can only hope that Kevin's much talked about new material will also one day see the light of day, but for now this will more than fill the gap. The tragedy of "My Beauty" is that it will probably only ever be heard by a very small but devoted audience, forever confining it to the margins. This hopefully will not deter Kevin from keeping to his singular, honest vision, for in these diluted musical times of boy bands and corporate inventions, we need his like more and more.
