BlogCritics: OMWH "well worth the price of purchase"

BlogCritics has added their take to OMWH, and they are declaring that "This CD is well worth the price of purchase":

Clay Aiken recently released his newest CD On My Way Here, which is both poignant and entertaining. Taking a hard look at himself, Aiken sings about private moments and shares them with loyal fans.

"On My Way Here" is the title song, and perhaps the most heart tugging of all. It is a discussion of life from childhood on. It might have been difficult, but rising above challenges is the best revenge. Piano as the sole backup for most of the song was a wise choice, it sets off Aiken's voice nicely. The soaring tenor is able to reach top notes without having to compete for dominance. Strings at the end reinforce the message.

"Ashes" is the first time a backup singer is utilized. This is probably my favorite song. The easy tempo helps me see how Clay has changed for the better. By letting the pulsating rhythm get faster, the change is clearly evident.


"Falling" only reinforces the message. When one holds onto bad memories, there is a tendency to become trapped. The music behind the words of this haunting song do not hide them, but show them plainly.


This CD is well worth the price of purchase. Even though there are religious overtones in just about every song, they simply make the words attention getting and brain remembering.
