Studdard has a marvelous voice, this cannot be denied. His voice captivates no matter what genre of music he chooses to sing. However, he runs the risk of alienating his American Idol fans with his hip hop/R&B flavoured Soulful. His fans voted for the Luther Vandross style Velvet Teddy Bear, and are given a cleaner version of a Fat Joe or Ja Rule album with Studdard's Soulful. That isn't to say the album doesn't have its standout tracks - Sorry 2004 is a fresh song concept and Flying Without Wings recalls the VTB's AI days. But two or three tracks catering to his original fanbase won't make Studdard a star. Here's hoping that Studdard's next album is more stirring soul and less dreary attempts at contemporary music.
