    Early Grimm and Highly Recommended!

    These songs were recorded in 2003-04 when Michael's voice was a bit higher but still gritty and distinct. Nine of the songs were co-written by MG leaving only two covers. This is a mix of Pop and Soul, with a dash of Rock and includes some of Michael's very best work, such as "The Reason" and "Dancing with Angels." I bought this CD last September when it first hit the shelves, and it's one of my favorites! This CD is the newly released version (6/7/11) with one previously unreleased track; I bought this one last month! Try it, you'll love it!!
