Into the Light

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Part of Phil Stacey's problem on American Idol was that he fit into no easy category: he had a clear, clean voice suited for adult contemporary pop, but a personal background that suggested he could fit as a country singer, an idea pursued on his awkward debut. Several years later and a major-label past now behind him, Phil Stacey finally lands in the right genre with his second album, Into the Light: CCM.

Several years later and a major-label past now behind him, Phil Stacey finally lands in the right genre with his second album, Into the Light: CCM.
