Chris Mann Roads CD Review

I was offered the opportunity to review Chris Mann's new CD "Roads".  I instantly jumped at this opportunity, I LOVE music, as well as my husband and kids.  Some of you may look at the album cover pictured above and are trying to figure out where you have seen Chris Mann before.  Well, he was a contestant on The VOICE and was on Team Christina.

This CD was released 10/30/12 and you can purchase it through iTunes and/or Amazon.

I enjoyed this album.  My favorite song is actually the first one, and the album title "Roads".  As soon as it started, I knew it was one I would like, and I was right!  He also has a few cover songs on his album, "Always on My Mind", "Need you Now", "Ave Maria", and " The Blower's Daughter".  There are also two songs that he co-wrote, "Cuore" (based on Bach's "Air on a G String") and "Falling". 

His songs were a bit too slow for the kids, only because they want to run around and dance (at 5 and 2 years old, they are some tough critics).  I myself enjoyed the entire CD and would love to listen over and over again.  A lot of the songs are very relaxing!  Troy did not really give me any feedback, he was probably looking up a sports score! ; )

Take a listen for yourself, you can go HERE to hear Chris Mann's version of "The Blower's Daughter" featuring Christina Aguilera.

You can find out more information from Chris' website found HERE

"...releasing his major label debut, Roads, a bold reimagining of the classical-pop genre. The aptly-titled album represents the culmination of a long and challenging journey for this gifted and dedicated young artist, who’d been pushing forward against what had appeared to be overwhelming odds."

I hope you all enjoy his music as much as I did!

Disclosure: " I was provided with a copy of this album through One2One Network for my review and this post enters me into a prize drawing.  All opinions stated above are my own."

I did not see the Voice but have heard great things about this guy's singing talent. He was compared to Michael Buble in another review. I think I'd like to hear him! Thanks for the review!

I've never seen the Voice but I just checked out a snippet on Amazon and he does sound very talented! On my wish list now! :)
