Album Review

In the spring of 1997, Bob Carlisle unexpectedly had a crossover hit with "Butterfly Kisses," an ode to his love for his daughter that just happened to hit the airwaves around Father's Day. Excited at the prospect of a major hit, the label re-released Carlisle's Shades of Grace under the title Butterfly Kisses, hoping it would lure in the mainstream audience. Although their gambit worked, it's unclear how many "Butterfly Kisses" fans will be satisfied with the entire album, because it doesn't have that many songs that are equally as catchy. The sound of the record is pleasant enough, since Carlisle has a good voice and the music is smooth and unobtrusive. Although pop consumers might wish the album had more strong songs, Shades of Grace/Butterfly Kisses still demonstrates a leap forward for Carlisle, and its best, hook-laden moments make it his best record yet.

Customer Reviews

Every time I hear this song I think of my daddy!

This song brings tears of joy to my eyes and always will. I'm 20 years old and I still call the man I look up to most "my daddy." Although, my wedding is a ways away yet, there is one thing I know for sure; this song will be the song I dance to with my daddy. Words can't express how I feel about my daddy or this song. If you have a daddy or another male role model, make sure you give him a hug and kiss today. He definitely deserves it!
