I love that man (and boy, is he ever photogenic, eh?)!!
I still don't like "Do I Make You Proud" (don't like any AI songs), but for a slow and plodding sappy-ass song, it's really not too bad, not as bad as most AI songs. I don't like the arrangement all that much though.
And I love "Takin' it to the Streets", I love his voice on it, but dayum, that's a shitty arrangement. They must have chimps in the mixing booth.
Taylor's voice though - man, that dude rocks. He just fuckin' rocks. No one on AI - ever - can come close to his talent. Not even Tamyra (sorry honey, I still love you, but you're no Taylor).
I'm afraid any future AI competitor is going to pale by comparison now.
