  1. Great review & I couldn’t agree more. I’m really looking forward to seeing what he does in the future!

  2. This is a great review! I’ve been listening non-stop since I got it, almost cried because of delay on iTunes….(ok, I DID cry!) my favorites change daily!

    1. Thanks! I have been listening to mine pretty constantly in my car since I picked it up on Tuesday. I didn’t pre-order on iTunes, because I’ve had issues with both of my past pre-orders of both David Cook’s and Kris Allen’s albums. Wasn’t about to wait for Lee’s!

  3. Totally agree with most of your review. “Dear Isabelle” pretty much sounds like a continuation of “Hey There Delilah,” LOL. But I love it. Your “Definite Downloads” are definitely my two favorites off of the album as well, although I also love “Brooklyn Bridge” very much. <3

  4. Great review! I love this album. It does have that ebb and flow feel of a relationship, but from the guy’s perspective. I didn’t catch that at first, but now I listen from start to finish without skipping a song. I do tend to hit repeat on Me and My Jealousy a good bit. I ended up with 2 copies because I wanted the two bonus songs on the download versions . They are just beautiful and would have been perfect on the album.

    I hope to see Lee around making music for a long time.

  5. Check out his live version (on youtube) of A Song About Love at the PC Richard and Son Theater, with just his guitar and Lincoln on keyboards. It was like he was about to cry, with his eyes going misty like it did during some performances on Idol. So beautiful :)

  6. Thank you for the good review of Lee DeWyze’s new CD, I agree with most of what you have said. My favorite song on the initial CD is Brooklyn Bridge with Me and My Jealousy being second. I also like Dear Isabelle and the others. I also got a bonus track which was “Say It All Over Again” and that song is FANTASTIC, I would love to hear Lee sing this in person. This man is a very talented musician who deserves to have his music on the charts. He loves what he sings and has a very unique voice that tugs at your heart strings. I am now anxious for more, more more of his music!
