Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Skye - Mind How You Go (2006)

Better known as the vocalist for the trip-hop band Morcheeba, Skye has a silky-smooth voice that is best described as soothing.  This debut solo disc could fit in the downbeat genre, but really it's just good, slow-tempo pop music (not quite ballads).  This is great rainy day music.  It's also the kind of music you hear at Fourbucks coffee shops or at the end of TV shows like House when they have the moody end montage just before the final scene.  Good writing, good production - this is a solid effort.  I should warn the listener, however, that this is one of those discs that requires a few listens to appreciate it.  Stick with it and you'll find it's worth the effort.

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart

Tracks:  The best tracks are Love Show, Calling, and Powerful.  Weaker tracks include No Other and Tell Me About Your Day.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD:  I heard the song Powerful on an ad campaign for the TV network TNT and I was hooked.
