Funky techno pop from a blue eyed soulman already eulogised back in CR5. Several songs and an overlong spoken intro deal with the dehumanising aspects of the computer revolution. The hooks are strong, there's plenty of kick in the programming and Eric's sinuous voice oozes soulfully over the ricocheting rhythms. The outstanding track is "Touch" where a gospel-style choir courtesy of Angelo & Veronica, Cindy Morgan and others give a surging exultant edge to the proceedings. A fine album from one of America's most underrated talents.

I have this great ccm in tune cd; luv it! I had heard the masterpiece "Touch" play on ccm radio; I immediately knew I had to get cd. The song includes vocals by ccm artists Angelo and Veronica, and Cindy Morgan; they complete this ccm top hit!! I'll never forget listening to the cd, "My Life is in YOUR Hands" made a solid connection! another great song Eric!! Another cd fave and radio favorite is "Endless"; I also have a cd collection with many of his earlier songs. GOD Bless! -Don
