His voice is just amazing! A must have CD! Solitaire is pure, classic Clay!

The Way is wonderful and Solitaire shows clearly why Clay's voice has stopped so many of us in our tracks. Something new is happening in the world and I would strongly recommend buying this single to hear a true artist surprise us with beauty.

The Way is on his album and is a great love song but Solitaire is sooooooo fantastic! Clay shows off his entire 5 octave tenor range in this phenomenal rendition. How does he do it? Seventeen full seconds on one note right on into the song! You just have to hear this!

Wow! What a voice! He is just the best. The Way is a great song and Solitaire is amazing.

First, "Solitaire" (Sedaka.Cody) is one of the best songs ever written -- a true pop standard. Clay Aiken's rendition is soulful, haunting, and powerful both vocally and emotionally. I think the background music is a bit too loud in places, particularly on Clay's climactic 17-sec. So-li-TAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRE wail on the last chorus. And, amazingly, Clay's live performances of this song are even more nuanced and emotionally charged! Still, this recording is a must-have for any true lover of power ballads! The companion song, "The Way," co-written by Enrique Eglesias, has a very Latin sound and feel. It's very danceable and catchy and a great "make-out" song! If the Solitaire single had to include a cut from the "Measure Of A Man" album, "The Way" seems as good a choice as any and a good contrast to "Solitaire."

This is absolutely the best recording of Solitaire ever. Clay sings with such passion and intensity. His range is dynamic and provides for a show-stopping finale. Clay is truly a natural talent and will continue to go far.

"The Way" gets 3 stars, but Solitaire is the true star of this single. Although I enjoy Clay's album very much, Solitaire out does anything I have ever heard in my life. It takes an already moving set of verses and Clay sings them with such tenderness and heart-wrenching passion. You will listen to this and never forget its story.

I have finally found music I can listen to and get lost in. Clay Aiken, The world has been waiting for you. I loved this CD.I can't wait for the next CD. Music that is pure and clean, finally. I haven't bought a record in 25yrs and since Clay has hit the circuit I have bought 3.

This is a very beautiful rendition of a classic song which is very haunting and mesmerizing. The singing gives me chills, excitement, and sends me to another place

Karen Carpenter's Solitaire is so superior to this one. Aiken is in good voice, but cannot come close to her hautingly beautiful, gut-wrenching version. And that is what makes a song stand the test of time.

I have waited for this release of Clays version of Solitaire....His vocals soars,.Absolutley beautifully done .Also The way is very good too.

I knew I liked The Way from the CD album. But Solitaire is THE song to buy for this single. It is awsome. A double-sided hit for this young man for sure.

Hello! I don't know anyone who has a 5 octave tenor range- you must not sing. I love Clay, I think he is great but his last album disapointed me, I really think he needs some better song selection. 'Solitare' is a great song so I would buy this single even though 'The Way' is cheesy

Clay Aiken is showing us The Way with his new release. The Way is a spectacular romatic song and Solitaire is the most amazing song I have ever heard. Clay Aiken outshines himself with the power behind his voice.

Although "The Way" was on clay's album (measure of a man) it was still great to have it included on this special Cd with "Solitaire" to go along with it.

If you have not heard Clay Aiken sing you are missing out. Clay Aiken brings such an overwhelming joy to anyone he touches with his music. The Way is a hauntingly beautiful song, co written by Enrique Iglesias which expresses the joy of loving someone and the unknown reasons why. Solitaire is a song written about lost love and only Clay can deliver it in such a way that you have to have a box of tissues handy. Wait til he hits the now very famous Aiken glory note. It just pierces you through the soul. This is the best version of Solitaire I have ever heard. A must have for any music library.

If you don't own this run, don't walk to the store and get one. Absolutely breathtaking, brought tears to my eyes. Clay's voice easily rivals even that of Josh Groban's voice. This is by far the most superior version of Solitaire ever recorded!! The writer himself (Neil Sedaka), even he said it was the best version, better than Karen Carpenter's and Elvis's. I say Neil Sedaka should know, HE WROTE IT!

Clay Aiken out does himself with "Solitaire". "The Way" is a nice song but "Solitaire" is what makes this a classic. A must have for anyone who has good hearing. Literally.

Buy this single. If you like 'The Way', you will like his 'Measure of a Man' CD too. For Solitaire, it is the best rendition according to Neil Sedaka. Don't miss it!

This was the BEST!!!

"The Way" is my favorite song from Clay's album, Measure of a Man. That said, it's hard to put into words how I feel about "Solitaire". When he sang this song on AI2, it was a defining moment for me. Now, to hear the whole song, as only Clay can sing...oy vey! I just can't stop listening! This is Clay at his best! He sings from HIS heart directly into MY heart. Thank you, Clay, for this gift.

He outdoes himself!!!! Oh my God, was the only words to describe it.

I love Clay's version of Solitaire, but I was hoping the second song would be something that wasn't already on the CD that I already have (Measure of a Man). Something like "Unchained Melody" would have been nice.
