This Song is What's Right!

When I heard that Taylor Hicks had released the first single from his new album, I was extremely anxious. Although I wasn’t crazy about Hicks’ first post-Idol album, (Which only had two great songs, “The Right Place” and the revamped “Soul Thing;” two good ones, “Heaven Knows” and “Give Me Tonight;” and, sadly, many, many bland ones) I absolutely loved the reissue of his past songs in “Early Works.” So, would this new song, “What’s Right is Right,” bring Hicks back to his roots – good ol’ southern Soul – or would it just be more of the same pop fluff? After my first few listens, I am ecstatic to say: Taylor has put the “Soul” back in “Soul Patrol.” The lyrics are meaningful, portraying perfectly how a committed relationship should be – where you and your partner basically share one soul; when they’re sad, you’re sad; when they’re excited, so are you. Although certain reviewers are bound to say how cliché the lyrics are, (And, to an extent, they are) there is nothing wrong with the occasional true love cliché. I knew that Taylor Hicks was a great songwriter, but with this song, he has truly out-done himself. “What’s Right is Right” rivals other Hicks-originals, “Somehow,” and “The Fall.” Hicks’ vocals are also top-notch. There are very few, if any, filters in his voice on this song, a trend that I hope continues onto the rest of the songs on his album. Taylor, and any good Blues singer, is at his best when he’s given a mike and is allowed to just belt out a song. However great the lyrics and vocals are, the best part about “What’s Right is Right” is the amazing instrumentals. Although I am not sure whether or not Hicks actually plays any of the instruments on this track, the best instrument is one that he doesn’t play: The sax. Whoever it is on this instrument sure as heck better be on tour with Taylor when he promotes the new album. So in conclusion, whatever you thought of Taylor Hicks’ first album -- whether you loved it or hated it -- forget about it. Take this new song, and this upcoming new album, as if it were his first. If you love classic Soul or Blues music (With a tiny bit of Country thrown into the mix), or if you’re just looking to find a song that you can truly get down to, I think that you would genuinely like “What’s Right is Right.” Overall, I’d give this track a 4.5/5, but since iTunes doesn’t let you divide stars in half, I’ll round up. If the rest of the songs on “The Distance” are as good as this one, then I think Taylor might just have another Platinum album on his hands – this time under a record company that realizes that “only" going Platinum (after they out-right refuse to promote him, no less) isn’t cause to drop the artist.

It's been a long wait, but...

Taylor Hicks doesn't disappoint with this single! I'll admit that I wasn't the biggest fan of this song after only one listen, but after a few go rounds I fell in love with it! The lyrics are spot on and the chorus will stick with you throughout the is the type of song that you'll get stuck in your head! Thanks Taylor for giving us this amazing love song!

Taylor's Got His Groove Back!

"What's Right Is Right" is full of soul, dedication and true inspiration and I look forward to hearing the entire cd "The Distance" upon release. Taylor Hicks got his groove back and has found his voice...GREAT JOB TAYLOR!

With his raspy, soulful voice and salt-and-pepper hair, Taylor Hicks was one of the unlikeliest contestants to make it to the final round of American Idol, but his quirky charm and rousing delivery of songs like "Takin' It to the Streets" won Hicks a devoted legion of fans called the Soul Patrol and the title of the fifth-season American Idol. Born in Birmingham, AL, and raised in Hoover, Hicks grew up listening to classic soul artists such as Otis Redding and Sam Cooke -- which he said he could...
