CDs by Cory Morrow

When he sat down to write songs, Texas artist Cory Morrow instead decided to celebrate his 10 years in music by reworking songs from his past CDs, to update the sound to what he feels is his present standards. Morrow contacted friend Keith Gattis, who also produced his last CD, "Nothing Left to Hide," to help.

Morrow's previous material was produced by Lloyd Maines, who has produced many Texas artists. Morrow wanted to find a sound that would separate him from the pack. While bordering at the fringes of country, the new sound he was looking for was something with more of a driving rhythm and beat.

Along with reworking eight previously released songs, Morrow included two new tracks - "Spinning Around The Moon" written by Morrow, the other written by Gattis titled "I Don't Want to Get Up," the first single to be released.

By only re-hashing old material, Morrow lacks originality you would hope for here. The revisions are not drastic, nor do they add anything artistically. The best song included was written by Gattis, not Morrow.

While those not familiar with his music may find this CD enjoyable, his loyal followers should begin to question what happened to a once promising talent.
