My daughter is 13 and HATES my taste in music. This CD is the exception; I played it a few times when she was in the car and it vanished....it is now on loop on her ipod. This album is fantastic I can listen to it over and over. This guy is such a talent and I now see the point in 'Idol'. I like this much better than his other album. Both are good but I just love this one. I so hope he brings out a new CD soon. It is easy listening rock and falls into an area where people who like hard rock wont find it too soft to bother with, and easy listening fans will love the emotion and 'story' to the songs. He has a very uniue voice and the songs almost have a country feel to them. It is hard to pin this album down to a genre, it is just too unique.
