I could go for a mojito right now. So minty, so cool, so fresh.

From LiveDaily.com:

If there’s a significant drawback on Hicks’ first major-label outing, it’s that the album was clearly rushed to be written, recorded and mixed for a Christmas release. The resulting body of work plays like a vocal showcase delivered atop otherwise bland and often forgettable music; while the vocals are strong, Hicks’ star could shine brighter given a band to match his colorful inflections and refreshing throwback appeal…”Heaven Knows” swings with a sassy swagger and “Gonna Move” offers a dose of Otis Redding-flavored R&B, but it’s “Soul Thing” that truly stands out amongst the 12 tracks, offering an infectious dose of Hicks’ raspy, soulful savvy in a song that should prove an anchor in his catalog for years to come…Taylor Hicks’ post-“Idol” debut may not prove the most representative of his talents, but it does build a compelling foundation for things to come.

What the kids are sayin’

"I hate them all. The judges, TPTB, the blatant manipulation, the songs, the contestants, everything. I'm a die-hard Cook fan, but for the love of god, at least try to look like you're enjoying yourself up there! Please? Syesha was awesome but she ruined it by being completely shameless and disgusting. Yes, being on American Idol is exactly like the civil rights movement, except for the part where you're fighting to make the world a better place."

"All I can say after the disgusting display tonight of favoritism towards the mediocrity that is David A. - good luck trying to market and make money off of that kid, American Idol. (Not to mention good luck dealing with his father.) All the teeny boppers may buy up his American Idol coronation single, but they will quickly forget about him before the album comes out. And I shudder to think of a David A. album - song after song of unrelenting sameness and heavy breathing. Why they are pimping him for the win is beyond me."

"This show was simply a hot buttered mess tonight. And Jason "needs to be arrested for what he did to I Shot the Sheriff. But I hope he stays. He amuses me. "
