Overview

The Tracks of Tyler Hilton is the kind of major-label pop debut that's not heard much in 2004 -- an album that has its eye on middle-American middle of the road, appealing equally to pre-teens and housewives without condescending to either. Hilton isn't a teen-pop idol, nor is he a crooner. He's an unabashed mainstream pop singer/songwriter, blessed with good looks, a lightly husky and appealing voice, a good ear and a knack for pleasing MOR mature pop. It's a sound that would have had found a greater audience in the first Bush administration rather than the second, but that doesn't mean that it sounds dated -- it just means that there are few venues for this kind of well-crafted, highly-polished ear candy in 2004 than there was in 1990, when Richard Marx was a star and Curtis Stigers was an up-n-comer. Hilton is in their league -- a good songwriter, a good singer, creating music that's unapologetically designed for the Top 40. Unfortunately, that Top 40 doesn't quite exist anymore, but those that long for a time when pop music wasn't hip or hip-hop, this will satisfy them quite nicely.

I have found out who he was when his single " when it comes" was out and loved him ever since. His cd is great. I love his lyrics they make me think about what he is saying!

I love Tyler Hilton! He is a great song writer and singer. I first heard him on One Tree Hill...the first thing that I thought was he was hot, and then when I heard him sing, I was amazed. He's hot and talented and different from other pop star styles.

This is one of the best CDs I have ever owned (and I have many). His raspy voice is unique as his feel and his lyrics will stick make you think

Tyler Hilton is an amazing artist. "The Tracks Of..." is a c.d for anyone. It doesn't matter what type of music you are into. Tyler Hilton's songs touch on things that we all face daily in our lives. His voice and lyrics are perfect to listen to anytime of the day. He has had a reoccuring role on the hit show One Tree Hill and this Cd is a gem for all your music collection!

When asked "If you could meet any celebrity dead or alive, who would you choose?" Tyler Hilton replied saying, "James Dean." I can see some of James Dean's rugged characteristics in Tyler along with Elvis' guitar skills. His homey pop, keeps me dreaming. It doesn't have any annoying beats thumping in the background, just guitars, maybe a bass, and some drums. It's lively and fun.

I can't stop listening to this CD. Tyler's voice is so amazing and unique! It's by far one of the best CD's I've ever heard.

Tyler Hilton is an awesome singer and songwriter. Every song on "The Tracks Of" is great. His style is kind of Pop-Rock, and is often compared to Elvis, who is also his idol. He is definitely someone you should check out!

At first I thought Tyler Hilton was just another artist I would be bored with, but after really listening to cd, I found it was really great!! His lyrics are pretty original and his voice is kind of raspy but nice to hear. His first single, "When It Comes" is really awesome. My personal favorite track is "Glad". "Our Time" is a sweet ballad, "Rollin Home" has a sort of country feel to it, and "Slide" is a great song to listen to while you're in the car. I highly recommend this cd!

Tyler Hilton is going to be huge real soon- he's the best of John Mayer, Gavin DeGraw, and Ryan Cabrera rolled into one. He plays the guitar and writes all his own songs, which you can definetly tell. His lyrics are just beautiful and well thoughtout- thats's what makes his CD one of the best this year. When It Comes- his first single and a very good choice. It’s only being played on a couple stations right now, but I expect it to pick up more airplay because it’s too good to be ignored The Letter Song- really catchy and upbeat, you won’t be able to not tap your foot to this one Glad- probably my favorite track on his CD. I think it’s beautiful- I don’t really know how else to describe it. The chorus is really good. Rollin Home- very soft and soothing, it’s very relaxing- it’s written about his travels Our Time- usually people write love songs about hooking up, but this one has a unique concept- he’s writing about breaking up with a girl. It’s a very sweet song- although I suppose it would suck to get dumped, the song would make me feel better if I was her Kiss On Me- another standout track! Really fast- I’m sure it’s a crowd pleaser Insomnia- I love the lyrics for it, the best line of the CD comes from here- “I miss the girl…and the cigarettes” Pink and Black, Slide, You My Love, and Picture Perfect are also great songs as well. The CD's got a lot of great extras, like an interview with Tyler, a bonus song, his music video, and a photo gallery. A definete must-have! And if you like this CD, go check out the One Tree Hill Soundtrack- he has two songs on there as well.

When you listen to this cd, you realize how talented Tyler Hilton is. With great lyrics, really catchy (but not empty) songs and a fantastic and very unusual voice, Tyler is sure to win you over. To listen to over and over and over again!

I love this cd. Tyler Hilton is such a great songwriter. This is a must have release. Every song is better than the last. If you have never heard of him before, this is a perfect chance to find out what all the buzz is about.

Tyler Hilton's CD is simply amazing! I listen to it all the time and can't get enough of it! I first found out who Tyler was through the TV show One Tree Hill, so I bought his CD and fell in love with his music. Sometimes you buy a CD and then you go and hear the person/band in concert and they end up souding different in person than on the CD. That's definitely happened to me before, but not with Tyler Hilton. He's amazing on the CD and in concert!

This is a great CD! My favorite song is "Glad," but all of them are great! It's really worth buying if you like good music.

This CD is so great I'm considering buying two more so I'll always have it with me; in the house, in the car, in my portable CD player, etc... It is my all time favourite CD. Tyler has an amazing, soulful voice that makes you melt each time you hear him sing. Whether it's the first time you hear him or hundredth, he always has the same incredible effect on your ears, mind, heart, and soul!!

Tyler Hilton's "The Tracks Of" hasn't left my CD player since I purchased it. The catchy melodies and thought-provoking lyrics are fun and inspiring. I got a chance to see Tyler perform live in my hometown and he sounds EXACTLY like his CD ... I'm really impressed with him. I listen to this CD everyday, I just can't get enough of it!

This cd was on my wishlist for a while, being from Canada where it is currently unavailable. When I finally received a copy, my wait was realized worth it! This cd is a great buy, and I love every minute of it. He's got a great attitude and it shows through on this album. He's coming up. Retro23

This is the best CD i have ever listened to. The song "Pink and Black" is about a breakup where he and another girl went in two separate directions. It got me through a hard time. The rest of the cd is wonderful as well. Take a listen, you wont be sorry.

I love Tyler's voice. Raspy and Mellow...definately an artist to keep an eye out for. I can't get enough of the acoustic versions of his songs. His voice along with his excellent acoustic ability will bring him far. He's cute too.
