  • "I Wanna Be Your Drug Tonight ...." "I gonna make you love me ...." "I can make you so happy ...." I like the way he plays and sings the Blues .... We all got the Blues one way or another ....
  • Альбом стилистически похож на то, что делает Lenny Kravitz, когда увидел обложку диска, понял сразу, с кого музыкант брал пример, да и перепевка kiss потверждает вышескзанное, что это Леонид Кравченко №2 :)
  • Why Blues is very interesting track
  • All Nite Long is such a track
  • his breaking song for me was in a good movie from the times of all our forefathers =) good for all of us
  • His voice not good? Conservatore, that's a bit harsh.
  • I really like his "Louisiana Party", "Cain", "Starr", "Kiss". Do they sound like a sub-category of Blues? Can somebody suggest some similar songs (from him or other artists)?
  • He rules
