Shelton - The Dreamer
Artist Profile and Website
Review by Jim Weaver
Shelton burst onto the country music scene with his self-titled
debut CD back in July of 2001 with his first #1 hit "Austin".
Since then he's had some chart success and has surely sold a bunch of
albums but it wasn't until the release of his latest song "The
Baby" that he was looking at another #1 hit. "The
Baby" is the first release from his second CD The Dreamer,
in stores now. Even though his debut CD was good... The Dreamer
is even better. It's a power-filled almost edgy showing from Blake but
don't worry, it's still country. Some of my favs from the new CD are "The
Baby" (of course), "Heavy Liftin'", "In
My Heaven" (especially the part about feeding lawyers to the
lions), "The Dreamer", "Asphalt Cowboy"
and "My Neck Of The Woods".
This CD shows a lot of maturing over the last two years and yet you can
still hear that young Okie rebel in his voice that just wants to belt
out a good song. Good CD!
Rating: BUY It!
Uh Oh... FLASH Intro Alert! Singing Site Alert! Like it or
not this site is going to burst through your speakers and may take a
while to load depending on your connection speed. You do have the option
to skip the intro but you can't get away from the FLASH files, they're
sprinkled all throughout the site. As for content, this site is loaded
with it; Chat Room, News, Fan Pics, Wallpapers, Bio, Music, FAQ, just
a fan could want... except, where's the photos? There's hardly any
promotional-type pics of Blake in there, in fact there's practically
none. And what happened to the links page? You know, the one that this
site (CSO) used to be on? Shame, Shame.
Overall even though it has some negatives Blake's site gets a good
rating because of it's content, there's a ton of it.
