Eric Stuart is an enigma. How does a Brooklyn boy sound like a young Neil Diamond,write like Dave Alvin and the heart of Johnny Cash?
  On the newest Eric Stuart Band's release "In the County of Kings",Stuart showcases all the elements of a major star in the prime of his career,a great voice,great songwriting and the emotional punch that 98% of today's so called "stars" wish they had a tenth of.

Now you might scoff at the Diamond comparsion,I beg to differ. Stuart's has that clear yet smoky,husky voice (yet he doesn't smoke) that has a certain sexiness that made Neil Diamond such a star. But what makes Stuart soar above that is his writing.

On my favorite track, "Hand-Me-Down-Love",the ernestness of young love slowly crumbling from looking to the past:

Something here don't feel right/
What a wicked web you weave/in the fabric of our love life/
You wear your heart on your sleeve

And thats just the tip of the iceberg. The ESB is a pretty fluid group of talented artists within thier own right. Jenna Malizia has a beautiful voice and one wonders what she would like on a solo record of her own. Add the superbly talented Questar Welsh to the mix and you can hear why this album is such a corker.

I also enjoyed the first single off this CD,"The Bottom Line" which features guest vocals by Darren Dunstan. Its a ripping good song as well and one fans of Eric's other career should get a kick out of.

You can read a great interview with Eric at www.MovieVine.com and enter a drawing to win this CD.

Highly recommended,one of the best releases of this year.
