Blog Tour - Hold On

About the CD: Eric Robertson, a popular producer in Provo, has brought together an impressive list of talented vocalists to sing on new, fresh productions of classic Michael McLean songs. The vocalists include some of the top names from the burgeoning Provo music scene, including Elaine Bradley, from Neon Trees, and Ryan Innes, one of the top contestants on NBC's The Voice. Eric grew up listening to Michael McLean songs and still feels a strong connection to them. This album is an effort to pay tribute to those songs and produce them in a way that will speak to a younger generation of LDS youth.

My review: This CD was just okay for me. I really liked I Can't do Everything performed by Brooke White and You've Always Been There for Me performed by Elaine Bradley. But for me the rest of the songs were just okay. Maybe part of that is that I remember the original versions of most of these songs and you really just can't beat that original version. It did seem to me that some of the tracks were trying way too hard to be 90's techno music and that really took away from the songs to me. I do think that it's a really fun idea for people to get together and re-do some of Michael McLean's great music. 

I was sent a copy of this CD in exchange for an honest review.
