Eagle-Eye Cherry - Desireless  Print E-mail
Music Disc Reviews Audio CD

Desireless,
Sony/The Work Group
| Performance 7 | Sound 8 |

That this album isn't very good shouldn't really surprise anyone. Don't get us wrong, we fell hook-line-and-sinker for it, "Save Tonight" is a catchy tune. In fact, not only do we like "Save Tonight," but there are other songs on here that are certainly worth a listen. "Worried Eyes," "When Mermaids Cry," and to an extent, "Comatose (In The Arms Of Slumber)," all have something to say. Sadly, as much as we would like this album to be lyrically, musically, and sonically engaging it is hardly any, ever.


It seems as if Eagle-Eye Cherry is being sold as a more accessible, more pop-like version of Ben Harper. If this is true, this is a bad, bad idea. Perhaps the future will bring be more from the eagle-eyed one (it would be surprising if he doesn't get a second album based upon "Save Tonight"'s success alone) and perhaps that effort will be more remarkable. Either way, this particular album epitomizes its moniker, and this is not a good thing.
