1.Grenade: What a great pop tune about how far he would go for the woman in his life. I loved his voice....so gorgeous! I have to admit that when I listened to this artist it reminded me of EARLY Michael Jackson in his talent. It's not he sounds just like Michael (especially not in his later years) but reminds me of Michael before all the Thriller....when I thought his voice was so good. Just great in his own right though so don't think he is a replica of Michael because he isn't. All I can say is I love it!
2.Just The Way You Are: Such a pretty song....really beautiful lyrics and is a catchy pop tune for sure. I loved the video that they played for this song on Much Music....who could resist that smile ...it's absolutely infectious! It's funny how some people have the ability to make you smile just by their smile,....they light up the world; he definetly has that! I'm sure all the young teen girls are just ga-ga over this guy!
3.Our First Love Song: A really nicely done R&B/Pop song about young love.......the first time. So much soul in this song...listen to that voice! Wow he hits so many vocal changes from falsetto and lower registers to just wonderful blending of abilities.
4.Runaway Baby: Okay this song isn't really for me....Read more ›
First CD was delivered with a cracked/broken jewel case. Upon contact Amazon sent me a new one right away. I only had to return broken one after I got the replacement. Very good service. I was impressed.
This is Bruno's debut album and it is spectacular. The first single was "Just The Way You Are" and the lyrics, even though they refer to a woman, are fitting for also describing the song itself: "you're amazing just the way you are".
"Grenade" is a blast of pure pop magic; Bruno described it as a one-sided heartbreak song. The build up towards the end of the song is magical; it's pop music that's so well crafted it rises above most of the songs in its genre. Yeah, I really like this number. "Our First Time" is very much like a 1980's El DeBarge meets Michael Jackson number and "Talking To The Moon" is a groovy, soulful ballad with a fantastic melody.
There are some moments of real lighthearted fun here too; "Count On Me" and "The Lazy Song" remind me of Bedouin Soundclash-light, airy and fun. Nods go out to the Cee Lo Green and Outkast's sound on "Runaway Baby", a song that could be blasted right back to the Seventies soul scene and would fit in perfectly.Read more ›
this album is pretty good, a lot better than I expected. got to love his vocals, strong and deliberate. the music keeps your toes tapping. Saw him on saturday night live, excellent hair, great suits. the whole album is strong, not a bad song. this guy has talent, a definite pick up if your into pop/rock with an edge on the dance side
