This here’s not a super hip or sexy choice for Album of the Month. However, when the songs from this album are randomly played on my iPod, I am always caught off guard by how much I still like them.
The drum-n-bass that accompanies “Please Forgive Me” firmly establishes the era in which this album was released. It has been fifteen years, my friends. Fifteen “oh-how-they-passed-so-quickly” years since this was released. Unfortunately for Mr. Gray, he was never able to re-capture the magic of this one. But he did manage to become one of the most popular musicians ever, at least for a short while.
I say this album has stood the test of time. Do you agree? Or was this album too mainstream for you to have ever given it a chance?
