Overview

McCormack has cemented his place in pop music as well as gay music cultural history with the affecting balladry and easy funk-tinged rock delivered on Missing. It makes sense now that only a performer with a Christian music pedigree and Elton John addiction could fuse his spirituality, pop musical genius, and sexual identity into a masterpiece of introspection and reasoned distance. When people shake their heads along with this music, it's in time to the beat, but also because they are recognizing parts of themselves in the characters. McCormack has peeled back the layers of the gay psyche, and perhaps because he knows that sexual identity is only one aspect of a complex human being, scores in presenting a whole person who emerges after this remarkable ten-song set as fully human. It's an incredible achievement and a definitive masterwork. Songs like "Don't Tell," and (exploring darkness, fear, and secrecy), "Love Is Love," and "Missing" (in which a man comes to terms with and learns to celebrate a long-suppressed part of himself) speak for the collective gay subconscious.
