This review is from: Elliott Yamin [Us Import] (Audio CD)
I wasn't really a massive American Idol fan last year, but when i did watch it I could see that Elliot was probably the best singer on there, even though he didnt go on to win. When i heard his CD was coming out, i suspected that it would be good and just hoped it wasnt like alot of the X-Factor contestants albums in this country which usually consists of cover songs and is just generally not much to get excited about.
'Elliot Yamin' however is a phenominal album. I am one of these people who tends to get bored listening to a whole album by one artist and only like a few tracks usually. This album however from start to finish each song could be a single, there is no filler. If you like R'n B music, which i guess is what this could be classed as, then Elliot is a fresh new vocalist to listen to. Stand out tracks for me have probably got to be 'Moving On', 'One Word' and 'Trainwreck', but its hard to pick when every song has something you like about it.
The album is about 90% slow-kinda songs, just dont expect up-beat disco type tracks, even though there are a couple of faster ones on here. I just think if you appreciate good singing, then this album is something you should consider. And i dont usually leave reviews so i guess it must have had an impact on me.
