It's About Time

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Featuring the wedding anthem-to-be "With This Ring," Kenny Loggins's first studio album in six years is a welcome return from the footloose '70s and '80s star. The eclectic set features acoustic material, ballads, a bit of country and rock -- even a lullaby. Loggins is joined by friends Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers on "It's About Time" and Clint Black, who co-wrote the autobiographical "Alive 'N' Kickin'."

All Music Guide - Jimmy James
It's About Time is about what you'd expect from a generic Kenny Loggins record: plenty of romantic and optimistic, feel-good songwriting; varied musical textures; and an almost determinedly mainstream adult contemporary rock sound. Some high-profile friends help out in the presence of Michael McDonald, Richard Marx, and Clint Black, all of whom co-write some of the tunes and also make occasional instrumental and vocal contributions. What this, his first studio record in about half a dozen years, lacks are memorable songs, or much of anything to distinguish it from much of what's played on the most commercial radio stations aiming for a middle-aged and middle-of-the-road demographic. Some of it's brassy and upbeat, as he pulls out the white-soul aspect of his vocals on numbers like "It's About Time" and "The Undeniable Groove," though the lyrics are sentimental in an "up with people" and "here's to life" sort of way. Soft rock and ballads are well-represented, however, in the likes of "The One That Got Away," "I Miss Us," and "No Other Voice," and country music asserts itself as an influence in the Loggins-Black collaboration "Alive 'N' Kickin'."

    Buy This CD!!

    Great cd by a wonderful performer. Kenny Loggins is a very talented artist and he also is someone who always puts forth quality---whether in the studio or at his 'live' performances.

    I expected more...

    My first exposure to Kenny Loggins was his solo album and concerts in 1977. I have followed his music and career since that time and have loved his music. After several "greatest hits" albums in recent years I expected more from this album. There are hints of "Vahevala" and "Your Mama don't Dance" but we are left with listening to songs that chronicle his mistakes in life, love and family. It was good to hear Michael McDonald again on Kenny's songs. It is only 44 minutes long. I expected better music and more of it.

    Eclectic & Upbeat

    This is Kenny Loggins? Wow! The opening title track blew me away. It has so many R&B influences and the groove is so soulful! I've followed Tommy Sims' career a bit over the years (he co-wrote "Change The World" with Eric Clapton & Babyface). His production and "soul" -- as Loggins himself wrote in the credits -- are unmistakable on this CD. "With This Ring" is a classic Loggins ballad with smooth production and touching lyrics. I'm already hearing this one on my local A/C radio station. It should continue to climb the charts and definitely become a wedding favorite. Many other tracks are terrific -- but you have to give them numerous plays. They grow on you. "This Is How My Song Goes" is a terrificly upbeat groove co-written with former Toad The Wet Sprocket front man Glen Phillips. Like the title track, this one has almost a spiritual / gospel feel to it. "Undeniable Groove" starts slow but suddenly breaks out into a full blown rock 'n roll tune. "I Miss Us" is an unabashedly honest confession to Loggins' wife -- and it, too, leaves a memorable emotional mark. "Doin' It Right" should be the next single released -- it's just a terrific pop/soul song that makes you want to crank up the Alpine in your VW convertible and cruise the California coast! It really brings me back to the late 60s. Finally, there's the track "Alive 'n Kickin'" -- it's a straightforward country song co-written with Clint Black. Black also sings background. It's obviously autobiographical and, as a country song, is terrific. But it doesn't seem to fit in this collection. Also, this would seem to have been the perfect track to reunite with Jim Messina. Why not? Where is Jimmy? During the album production, I heard Kenny co-wrote a song with the Moody Blues' Justin Heyward -- where is it? Also, I thought Kenny was recruiting the great Melissa Etheridge for a duet on this album, but she's nowhere to be found. Those are minor gripes. Just keep replaying that title track -- it's perfectly crafted stuff and great to hear Micheal McDonald's voice and keyboards, too.
