Album Review

It's nearly impossible to initiate a discussion about singer/songwriter Ben Taylor, son of Carly Simon and James Taylor, without first mentioning that he sounds a whole lot like his legendary father. The cool, calm, and effortless voice that narrates the ten songs on Another Run Around the Sun could break into "Fire and Rain" at any moment and nobody would notice, as the young Taylor has managed to craft an album that could have come out in the mid-'70s with nary a change in production, but he projects a less cocky version of his more famous parent. Impeccably produced by actor/musician Kevin Bacon, Taylor's third full-length recording is sure-footed, impossibly warm, and engaging enough to deserve an attentive audience. Standout cuts like "Some Day Soon," "One Man Day," and "Think a Man Would Know" may break little new ground for the genre, but they're as solid as anything doing time on adult contemporary radio.

Customer Reviews

Great Music

This is Ben Taylor's 3rd full length album, the 2nd to be released. It is great music, some of the best modern folk today. The single "nothing i can do" is about his mom Carly Simon, and is very upbeat and well written. One of the best songs is "Think A Man Would Know" it is very unique and has wonderful lyrics. "Digest" is about his buddy John Forte who is currently in jail for 10 more years. I would recommend this album to anyone.

Classic, well thought out, and soulful music.

I Loved this album. Ben definitely has the genes of a great songwriter. His lyrics are meaningful, which in today’s music word is refreshing. He has a tone to his voice that unmistakably sounds like his dad James Taylor, but his music stands on it’s own. You’ll love this album. The intro to the song “You Think a Man Would Know” comes from the ending of a James Taylor song called “Terra Nova.” This is one of the many strong tracks from this album. I highly recommend it!

Amazing music

Ben Taylor's music is smart yet deep. His lyrics talk about universal problems that anyone can relate to, and that can make you laugh. His melodies are simple, not complicated by the huge backup of electronic sounds heard on the top 40s list. "Digest" is sad and beautiful. He wrote the song for a friend who went to prison for a crime he did not commit. "Always" is a cute love song, as is "You Must've Fallen." This CD deserves to be a hit.
