Style, you say? That's what this CD offers, as no other singer has offered in a long time. He sings in different genre's, with dazzling vocals that embrace and command each high sound into low growls, and everything swirling in-betwwen.This is Clay's tour-de-force, bursting into a mature sound that all but seduces and enraptures.
He opens new doors with each song, and tells of a perfect love, a chaotic love, a private, agonizing self-appraisal. The youngsters wil not understand some of the words, and how refreshing that is.
My favorite...well, that's hard.

Terrible review. Glenn did not listen to the whole CD. These songs are nothing like Barry Manilow. There is something of everything on this CD....from jazz to pop. Two killer soft rock songs..."Ashes" and "Falling", have hit written all over them. Don't take a PAID critics view on anything....listen to the songs on youtube for yourself.

This CD is a masterpiece of ecletic songs and Clay's magnificent voice. He's smooth, silky and sexy. He brings a mood to each song and every one is worth your time. "Something About Us" has gone to #1 on my list of all-time love songs. And if you've ever been in love, this song will take you back to that place in time. My favorite is still "Lover All Alone" that Clay wrote. But they are all good. Totally "Clay"--an amazing collection. He just gets better and better.

Vince, it seems that you are a typical guy who doesn't even know what women think is sexy. Women love Clay, and YES, we think he is totally sexy. Why? He's sensual in an understated way, a guy we could picture as the father of our child, as a best friend, as a son. He's sweet, funny, smart, loves children, is philanthropic and is SO talented--that is totally sexy. So keep your Justin Timberlake. Clay's fans know who brought sexy back--and it's Clay by a mile!

Clay looks more like someone's menopausal auntie with the passing of each day.

Clay has a unforgetable voice and you reconize it the monent you hear it. I think he is adorable and I'd love to hook him up with my beautiful graddaughter, He has talent that hasn't even been discovered as yet. He is a very giving and honorable young man. Keep on producing those great CD, I own every one. Love you Clay in Virginia

Why would you want to condemn your granddaughter to a loveless, sexless marriage? Is she a lesbian who needs a beard? If not, I'd be trying to hook her up with a straight man.

These Clay fan do you think they have a clue? I can't wait to see how they view him when he comes out. Grandma there must be a straight guy available for your grandaughter. Clay doesn't bark up that kind of tree. Accept him for who he is.

Never have I loved a CD more than this one.
I love a variety of singers like Josh Grobin and Michael Buble, but this CD is absolutely my favorite ever. Most CD's I skip over songs but not this one.
I applaud Mr Aiken and his producers for the astounding CD.

I like most of the songs on the new CD but Ashes and Everything I don't Need are my current favorites,followed by Sacrificial Love,Falling,and Lover All Alone. What a great voice. I love to hear what he does to a lyric. And his sense of humor is phenomenol-considering how many Vinces there are in the world.But then-he's the one with the double platinum albums. And he deserves every bit of fame and joy he gets.

Whatever. I love Clay's new CD. The songs, even those mentioned in a dimmer light,like ASHES, are superb. He lends his heart and soul to the tunes, not just his magnificent voice. It is great for us Claymates to finally have some original Clay to listen to once again....and not to mention, getting to see and hear him doing interviews and performing ON MY WAY HERE. I, personally, could see this song becoming the next "farewell" song on American Idol. It would be perfect!

Do you honestly think your rude, obnoxious comments are funny? If you don't like Clay,fine, but don't come here and may snide comments to those who do. We are all entitled to ur opinions, but not in such a rude, degrading manner.
