Review

Richard Marx is a great hero who since 1987 has given us many great songs. He is best known for his languorous love ballads, but if you listen to the early albums there is much more than that. Keeps his first two albums among the best that was in the late 80's, but also think that his recent album "Emotional Remains" was of good class.
This album then is nothing but a way to milk the fans for more money, something he already has far too much of. We got eleven acoustic versions of his most famous track and sure it sounds good. Richard sings awesome and the songs are great, but wonder if he missed that he released an acoustic record two years before with Matt Scannell from Vertical Horizon?
As a bonus, however, we have Richard's interpretations of songs he wrote for others. This feels a little strange when they are in a produced studio format, and had worked out better stripped down as the others.

Lifehouse "Had Enough" is cool such as Keith Urban's "Everybody", but he shouldn’t have tried to do Josh Grobans "To Where You Are".

Good, but useless!

Did you know that?

Myles Kennedy was in a band called ´Citizen Swing´ from Spokane, Washington. The band released two albums, Cure Me With the Groove and Deep Down, before disbanding in 1996. ´Cure Me With the Groove´ was a jazz-influenced pop album best described as Stevie Wonder meets Stevie Ray Vaughn, while Deep Down was a much heavier album, dropping all of the pop pretense in favor of heavy guitars, soaring vocals, solid and infectious beats and a bit of the ´jazz flair´ of the trumpet. Vocalist and lead guitarist Myles Kennedy, formerly of Cosmic Dust, eventually went on to front The Mayfield Four and later Alter Bridge.
