Wow, Wow, WOW!!!

What an explosive project this has turned out to be!
This CD is very commercial without sounding "sellout"!
Leonard Stevens, is one bad mutha'..(Shut yo' mouth) but, I'm just talkin' 'bout "Leonard Stevens". He has managed to tap in on the essence of two legendary "ICONS". Hints of: "Steely Dan" & "Queen" featuring: "Freddie Mercury".
The cuts that do it for me in a great way are as follows:

1. The Backroom
2. Sunshine
3. Holdin' On
4. I Can Fly
5. That's All She Is
6. Honesty

Hey "Leonard", if I could make a suggestion for your next CD?,
make sure U bring your vocals up a lil more in the mix.
Other than that, I really think "Leonard Stevens" is a talent that we all should be keeping an eye on. If this CD is any indication of what the "man" has to offer, than I'd say we betta buckle up our seat belts, coz this man is ready for "take off".
Continued success "Mr. Leonard Stevens".
I can't wait to hear more product from this "ARTIST"!
Just incredible! bZo!

If you like chicken,garlic and soy sauce piled high on a mound of sticky white rice stewed up in the most rockinest yet funkiest concoction...then you have Leonards' CD. I've been following his career now for quite some time - this is his BEST YET - Rock and Funk at it's finest...with lyrics and melodies abound -he is a true talent in my book!!!

Spread The Sunshine :-)
