Clear View

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Hamilton
The Controllers hit with "Somebody's Gotta Win, Somebody's Gotta Lose," back in the day, but opening with "When I'm Away" on Clear View they sound like Boyz II Men; they update their '70s classic with a '90s-style, meaning they tack on a long intro and emote their lamenting lyrics for nearly six minutes. Their seasoned voices have a youthful, contemporary quality, especially on "Alone," and on the hip-hop flavored "Clear View" and "Step Aside." They also alternate between lightweight hip-hop, and pleaders like "Goodbye," "Into Your Heart," and "No Need to Hurry."
