Album Review

It's nearly impossible for teen idols to make a credible comeback after they've matured, which is what makes Jordan Knight's solo debut all the more fascinating. Donnie Wahlberg may have been the bad boy in New Kids on the Block, but Knight was the star with the voice — a falsetto that propelled ballads like "I'll Be Loving You (Forever)" to the top of the charts. Since he was, for most intents and purposes, the lead singer of NKOTB, he had to work harder than most of his colleagues (again, with the exception of Wahlberg) to separate himself from the group, and he works hard on Jordan Knight. Teaming with a bevy of producers — including full-time collaborator Robin Thicke, and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis — Knight doesn't abandon the smooth urban soul stylings that made his reputation, but he updates it, borrowing from a number of contemporary sources to create a stylized, fresh sound. Even with the extra effort, the urban soul ballads sometimes blend together, but he shines on the uptempo numbers, such as the inspired weirdness of "Give It to You," which blends accordions, waltz breaks, and slammin' grooves in an irresistible fashion. Similarly, "A Different Party" makes Sugarloaf's "Green-Eyed Lady" sound funky, and "Close My Eyes" recasts the opening guitar line of Kansas' "Dust in the Wind" as part of an affecting ballad. In between the two extremes are Philly soul-inspired midtempo jams like "Finally Finding Out," which reveal Knight as a master of his voice who can write a strong song, as well. Jordan Knight is not a perfect album — there's a little bit of filler that weighs down the second half of the record — but the best moments are surprisingly strong, innovative, and assured: the kind of mainstream music that would be impressive regardless of the source, but it's all the more remarkable considering Knight's teen pop heritage.

i know no-one's reading this anyway but...

I have to say this album is one of my all-time favorite albums (if not my fave!). A combination of great, heartfelt, smooth, smooth vocals (Jordan has never sung better before or since); beautiful spine-tingling lyrics (with nods to Jordan and Robin Thicke); and great production. You know a great album when there is nothing skippable. I had this CD on repeat all for MONTHS back in '99, and it does the trick. Forget NKOTB, the ubiquitous Give it To You and whatever, if you want to hear some really good music, check out the following works of art (this is my Jordan KNight Essentials list): #3 Change My Ways, #8 Separate Ways (My all-time favorite song) and #9 Close My Eyes. Then taste the goodness of #7 Don't Run, #6 Broken By You and #5 Fin'lly Finding Out. Then go buy the rest of the album. Then go check out these songs off his other albums: ****Have You (a classic - one of the best songs ever recorded); ****I Wish (just typing the name of it makes me need to go play it - a rare passionate beauty); ***She's Got a Way... Then go buy ****Can't Believe it's Over from NKOTB"s Face the Music album. By then I won't have to tell you what to buy. The music will speak for itself.

Favorite song

I love "Give It To You" & I had found the album in a music place in NYC. I'm glad to spend money on this album just for this song!


this cd is awesome...give it to you is a great workout song along with a diffrent party just keeps you going and then the ballad I could never take the place of your man is great. Unfortunatly his 2005 cd is not even living up to this one.

As a frequent lead vocalist for late-'80s teen pop sensation New Kids on the Block, Jordan Knight lent his sweet falsetto to such Top Ten hits as "You Got It (The Right Stuff)," "I'll Be Loving You (Forever)," and "Cover Girl." Additionally, Knight added backing vocals and his nascent production skills to records by the likes of Tommy Page and Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, and began to step into that latter role for the New Kids as Maurice Starr's influence over the group waned. However, by the...
