EDITORS’ NOTES

Kris Allen’s aptly titled fourth album is full of personal lyrics—the title track details the agony of new love—and deft touches that highlight his growth as a pop songwriter. “Faster Shoes” is piano-propelled and acerbic in a way that recalls Billy Joel, while Allen shows off his voice’s huskier side on the politically tinged “If We Keep Doing Nothing.” The upbeat hookiness of “Move” and “Time Will Come,” meanwhile, puts the easygoing charm that helped him win the eighth season of American Idol on display.

Amazing

So my favorite album by Kris Allen is TYC, and my favorite song by him is The Vision of Love. However, after listening to "Waves", I have to say that if the whole album is like "Waves", then this new album will be my new favorite (btw "Waves" is my favorite song atm)!

Can't keep doing nothing……..

A James Taylor/Paul Simon for a newer generation. Kris Allen continues to create a wonderful sound with brilliant interpretation of lyrics. Still enjoy his version of 'Let It Be' which has been a longtime favorite. Was really moved by his latest release "If We Keep Doing Nothing" - just brilliant. You keep hearing people say "We need to have the conversation…" Well talk is cheap….we need the sentiment of this song to ring true. Can we take it from the conversation and start taking action and putting things in place to make things better for our children and beyond. Kudo's on this Kris, please perform this song the American Idol finale if you get a chance. It needs to reach millions.
