Hey, it's hat act number 211 this year. Actually, it's not that bad. James, who sounds a little like Travis Tritt, minus the vocal range and passion, can boast some talent in the songwriting category. James' name is affixed to all 11 songs on the album. A few that stand out include, "If I Could See Love,""Dark Side Of The Moon," and the southern-rock/country styled "Enjoy The Ride. " However, this is pretty much your standard country record with average material and average vocals that leads to an average review of an average artist.
No surprise is the fact that the record is out on the sister label, Career Records, of country powerhouse Arista Records, who boasts Brooks & Dunn, Alan Jackson and Pam Tillis. A little tip for you record buyers: It seems as a general rule of thumb that if it's a new act on the sister-label of a bigger label, then the act is generally going to reek of mediocrity.
