Artist: Kenny Camacho Album: "Long And Overdue" CD Review: Genre: R&B Sounds Like: Jon Secada/Luis Miguel Technical Grade: 5 Production/Musicianship Grade: 5 Commercial Value: 5 Overall Talent Level: 8 Songwriting Skills: 7 Performance Skill: 8 Best Songs: Lady In Red, If I Could Turn Back Time, Love From A Stone, Never Giving Up Weakness: Dated production. Low quality recording. CD Review: I heard just 3 notes come out of this guys mouth, and I braced myself to blown out of this world...but before the rocket could launch, his production team disabled it and kept me from sailing into orbit. I appreciate the keyboard playing skills, and the desire to display those skills, but too many fills and musical adlibs diminished the effectiveness of what I will call one of the best unknown male vocalists I have heard this year. Song, after song, I kept waiting for his production team to just turn him loose and it never happened. Advice: Have your producers pull back the production during the verses in your future projects so your voice can take center stage.
