Album Review

A somewhat belated attempt to revive Clay Aiken's 2010 standards album Tried & True, 2012's Steadfast takes seven of that record's 11 songs, adds three new recordings — covers of pre-Beatles pop hits Neil Sedaka's "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do" and Connie Francis' "Who's Sorry Now," plus the new original tune "Bring Back My Love" — and ditches the original album art for a straightforward portrait. Why go through this effort to relaunch an old album? The answer lies in Donald Trump, who cast Clay on the spring 2012 season of the Celebrity Apprentice, thereby necessitating fresh product from Aiken on the shelves. Fortunately, Tried & True was an album that deserved a second chance, as it was the record where Aiken seemed most at home: he sounded comfortable singing the melodies we all know by heart, surrounded by soft, handsomely tailored arrangements. In its Steadfast incarnation, these sessions sound no different, but the three new cuts are all good, and the overall package is more appealing than its first incarnation.

Love Clay!!! Hope he wins celebrity apprentice!

Good Music is Back

Clay's voice has a way of wrapping itself around your heart and you never want it to leave. These are beautiful arrangements which showcase his voice so well and makes it a pleasure to hear them over and over. My favorites are "Bring Back My Love' and "Unchained Melody"--sung as only the classiest guy in the music world can sing them.

Hoodwinked - It's A Reissue

Two stars for the cheap trick of rereleasing a year old album with new cover art and only one previously unreleased track. If you've already downloaded the "Tried and True" album with the bonus tracks then you already own "Steadfast" minus the only new track ("Bring Back My Love").

I suggest that if you already own either version of "Tried and True" you should only purchase the track(s) not appearing on the version you own. As others have suggested this repackaging pretty obviously has been done to capitalize on Aiken's recent appearance on "Celebrity Apprentice". However, it certainly could have been handled in a more straight forward, and less deceptive, manner. Clay's fans deserve better treatment and this looks like a greedy ploy on the part of Decca to hoodwink people into thinking Aiken has a NEW album.
