Indebted as he is to the past, he is indeed a man of his time, well-manicured and polite, never coloring outside of the lines, but this inherent good nature serves him better on Slice than it did on his early recordings because the emphasis is on the sound, not his quivering sincerity.

Each song is richly, fully arranged, placing an emphasis on his symphonic soft rock, and in pure musical terms, this is his most appealing set of songs to date, precisely because it pushes his melodies, not lyrics, to the forefront.

    Bridget's Review

    I love music. I sit here typing up reviews and I have my iTunes playing most of the time. Music has a calming effect on me even if it's one of those screaming bands. I have an appreciation for all music (except for country, I just can't get into it) and I listen to different types depending on my mood.

    For me, Five For Fighting is a great CD to listen to when I want to hear something that has meaning and when you think about the words, you feel like you can better understand life. I give this CD 5 stars!
