iTunes Review

Jason Castro' self-titled debut album mixes Jason Mraz-esque folk-pop with hints of R&B, and he has a knack for delivering honeyed tunes without being cloying. Co-writing most of the album’s material, he builds his songs around his acoustic guitar strumming while sticking to boy/girl themes. “Let’s Just Fall In Love Again” is a natural summer single, the perfect anthem for couples reaffirming their affection. The skip-along rhythm of “This Heart of Mine” and the balmy soul of “Love Uncompromised” are in a similarly tender vein. Castro reaches out to a misused lady-friend in “You Can Always Come Home” (a duet with Serena Ryder) and unreels a delicately erotic fantasy in “It Matters to Me.” A yearning rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” — the tune that earned him instant attention on American Idol — closes the album on an exalted note. Castro may over-emote at times, but he always projects genuine warmth and a scruffy sort of class. At his best, his good vibes are downright contagious.

Perfect Summer Album

Two years was a long time to wait but the album does not disappoint. There is something for everyone on this disc. My personal favorite is "Closer."

Worth the Wait!

This CD is just wonderful! There is not one song on here that I do not love! I am really enjoying "This Heart of Mine". "Hallelujah" is absolutely beautiful. It's great to finally have a full-length recording of the song that first attracted me to this very gifted musician.

Congratulation, Jason! And thanks for the music!!

It took long enough, but we all hung in there.
My only criticism woudl be that some of the songs
seem to be to the tweens, but there are others
that do balance things out.
I would like to se more " grown up" songs next time.
but I aplaud his getting his "over the rainbow" in, his "Halleluia" in.
I'm sure there was a battle that, but he really owned Over the Rainbow.
"Love Uncompromised" is my favorite even throwing be back to Bob Dylan a bit.
Congratulations Jason, you should have won it the first place.
Slower, imtimate and more daring.

With an acoustic guitar, dreadlocks, and a flower child disposition, Jason Castro spun his singer/songwriter appeal into a fourth-place finish during American Idol's 2008 season. Castro was the first artist to play an instrument on the show, and he used his guitar skills throughout the competition, accompanying himself during laid-back performances of "I Shot the Sheriff," "Daydream," and "Travelin' Thru." Although he ultimately finished behind rivals Sayesha Mercado, David Archuleta, and David Cook,...
