Standard radio soft-shlaga here, nothing to see, move on, please. This smoochy, teary, soap opera fare is actually very well-rendered, but you'd better be a fan of Edu Lobo, B.W. Stevenson, Dean Friedman, Michael Murphy, Dan Hill, and Barry Manilow to take to it. I'd rather be waterboarded than forced to listen to those mooks (though, dammit, I have the most perverse liking for Murphy's Wildfire, Bobby Goldsboro's Honey, and Doctor Hook's Sylvia's Mother—I've seen shrinks, nothing helps). Thus, you have cuts like Blame It on the Moon on this CD that are catchy, hooked, and guaranteed to chart. More power to John Tenuto, the brains behind The Bridge & the Prophet, but I'm not the one who'll be buying the single. I will say this much: the guy's a very good singer but badly in need of material with far greater dynamics pushing him into his proper sphere...and I'm speaking to the lyrics as well.
