The first time i ever heard the CD i thought it was okay... but then after i listened to it more i found out that it was GREAT music, absolutly to DIE for! I can see why some other people don't like it, but i can't see why they wan't to insult and rudely speak about the artists that way... being nice isn't just something kids learn in sunday scool! Anyway it was AWSOME!
|Touching and beyond Cool!|
this cd, this whole genre of pop music makes me want to throw up whenever i hear it.....jessica simpson Blows...even if you like her "music" you cannot deny that she has NO MUSICAL TALENT WHATSOEVER
|how this was ever considered music is beyond me|
The new CD by Hayley Westerna is amazing.. the CD is sensual and very intriguing. she has a beautiful voice and is a great new talent. You are sure to fall in love with her on your first listen!!
|hyley westerna - PURE|
This is a fantastic CD produced by Mike Wanchic of Mellencamp. The songs are well written and the singing is great. I highly recommend this. The kinda CD that gets better with every listen. It's the best I've heard in this genre since Whiskeytown.
|Excellent Alt Country|
Excellent gets me off my feet everytime i hear it its a must! We even do it at skool!! Cha cha slide rules!! I love the music video 4 it. If u dont like it u must be CRAZY!!
|Cha Cha Slide rules!!|
dre, dj premier, mel-man, e-swift... great producers!
|what the hell|
eminem, snopp dogg, nate, dre... great raps!
every real homie must have this longplayer!
x to the z changes often his rap style what makes this cd also better!
This CD surprised me! I enjoyed Clay's voice during AI2, so I was very interested in purchasing this CD. What I soon realized was that this was a totally different Clay! Groomed to attract a younger crowd, the songs don't really show off his voice the way other songs might. But that's not to say that the songs on this CD are not entertaining! I've listened to the CD over 20 times, and I cannot pick just one favorite! In fact, I have about 10 favorites, with the other two a close second! If you like good music - buy this CD today!
|I Can't Even Pick a Favorite!|
This CD truly is worth your time and money. There are so many good songs, written by the most respected artists, and Clay's voice is simply astounding. One of my favorite tracks was written by D. Hayes of Savage Garden!!
Don't have to take my word for it... read BILLBOARD MAGAZINE'S REVIEW! They say that this is the "BEST POP ALBUM OF 2003!" Check it out!
|"Best Pop Album of 2003"|
"Measure Of A Man" was wonderful & exactly as I expected it to be. Clay's music is so different from all the new dirty stuff we hear now. Its clean, honest & words tell a story.
|A wonderful title & Clay a great man|
Im' in the 70 catagory & so please to see & hear good clean beautiful music, its just like the man Clay.
Clay keep up the good work .
I'll buy all & everyone you make.
I really enjoyed & appreciate your "Thank You" story on the inside . It could not have been any better said.
God Bless you & all your fan club members.
I LOVE this cd! I have to admit I was slightly surprised about touch and only because Clay is so incredibly pure. However, I agree that you can interpret it many different ways and it's not by any means dirty. Singing something about this aspect of love is completely different than singing something like, "I wanna get down and dirty tonight" or something. Bad explanation but you get the jist of it. It's a great song and you have to be exepting of the fact there there are different kinds of songs that have to do with that kind of stuff. This song is not dirty, it's pure and it's great! Every song on the cd is great!
This CD is truely a gem. Its lyrics arent the traditional pop sexual songs and i think that just adds to the good clean fun clay aiken provides. People who are saying they are disapointed, are you listening to the same cd everyone else is? Its amazing i love it and havent stopped listening to it.
Not good. Over rated. Just average. Nothing to swoon over. Save your money.
There were only two songs that Iliked on this CD and I don't recall the name of them. Clay should stick to broadway where I think he will do just fine. He has a nice voice but he still needs work.
Manufactured Success of a Man.
|This should have been called,|
This CD was proof to me too that Clay Aiken may only be a flash in the pan with a success that was bought by his fans. His CDs may reach platinum alright, but what would one expect with fans who in a sick plot to scoop them up by the cart loads just to boost his sells. It's a good stratagy but, not a very honorable one. I suppose they knew the normal public wouldn't be buying them. I wonder what the heck does one person plan to do with 20 CDs. LOL!
This CD isn't even 5 stars and certainly not worthy of platinum status. Although with his fans buying in multiples the way that they are, he will go platinum but it will always be tarnished to me.
What happened? I am a Clay fan, but I must say that this one wasn't very good. I know many of my Claymates will probably hate me for saying this but I am only being truthful. Clay is better than this Cd. I think he released it too soon and should have worked a bit longer on it.
I originally became a Clay fan because my wife was so into his music - then I listened to him and found out what all the fuss was about. I am a 35 year old male and although I didn't want to get hooked, I must admit his songs are very moving and his voice terrific. Easy listening and wonderful for romance. I highly recommend this CD to everyone!
I just LOVE this CD! Clay's voice as usual is amazing and pure!
|I love this CD - best of all time!!!!|
Most albums only have one or two good songs on them and therefore are not worth the investment - this CD definitely is worth every penny I paid and much more!
I only bought one copy at first, but know plan on buying many copies (an extra for myself, plus some for my four sisters, my brother and other family and friends that didn't get a chance to see American Idol - I know they are lame and missing out, but the few I have let hear my CD have become immediate Clay fans) since it is so OUTSTANDING!
I can't decide on a favorite song yet - I love all but one song and even that one I like. Clay's voice is gorgeous and so addictive!
If you don't already have a copy, buy one as soon as possible - you won't be disappointed - I don't know what drugs the people were one that gave this CD bad reviews - it is the best CD I have ever heard!!!
Measure of a Man truly measures up to be a great pop album with thoughtful song selection, lyrics and melodies that capture our human experiences through Clay's beautiful and mastery voice. Especially noteworthy are the different styles in arrangement of the songs with the rock edge in "Pretty Day" and a latin flavor in "Touch", the up beat tempo of "Invisible" and slower ballad of "The Way". I can't wait to hear him perform this debut album in a live performance! It's a definite SHINE!
|It's definitely a "Shine"|
The CD was okay. Not what I was
|Stay true Clay|
hoping for but I will listen to it anyway because it's Clay's. Hopefully the
next one will be better. :-) Loved
Measure of a Man but the others
could have been better. Stay true
to yourself Clay.
I was worried that the CD would be so different from his AI songs, that he would be forced to sound like the rest of the c..p in the pop world, but I was amazed at how much I love these songs. There isn't a one of them I don't like. I can't wait for his solo tour and next CD!
|I'm an Oldie, but he's a Goodie!|
to have anticipated a cd as long as I did this one, then to have it turn out mediocre
at best... was a really big dissapointment. I've been a Clay fan since american idol. Even joined several of the fan sites on the internet, went along with all the orders given to us to "push for platinum", "clay it forward", "email radio station countdowns", "buy as many cds as you can", "vote, vote, vote" in all the polls with clays name on it,. Had pre-ordered 8 copies of this cd from amazon, but found it at a local store monday night. Thank the lord Amazon hadn't shipped out my order and I was able to cancel it on Tuesday afternoon. There are a couple of songs that are just ok, the rest aren't worth wasting time listening to. Sorry fellow Clay fans, but I'm rethinking my status as a devoted claymate. If and when Clay does put out another cd, hopefully it will sound better than MOAM.
Clay couldn't have sung these songs better. Although not typically the type of music I normally listen to, I find that this CD has something for almost everyone. Clay sings every song to touch your heart and keep your spirits up long afterwards. Buy this CD and play it loudly! The whole world needs to hear his wonderful voice!
|Best Pop CD of 2003|
What can I say? Yeah, I bought the CD
popped it in a listened. I will probably
never play it again so it was a waste of
my money. I don't know what they are
trying to do to him, but this was not
a good listen. Most of the songs
lacked that special something I thought
Clay had. Maybe he should stick to singing broadway or go back to teaching.
Well I thought I would give Clay Aiken a listen because my grandma and all her pals enjoy him so much. I just don't get his appeal? The songs on this CD all sound the same and his voice doesn't fit for most of them. I could see him as the lead roll on Broadway doing very well, but pop music - NOPE!
|This is not my thing|
Sorry guys, but this cd is not worth the $$$ you paid for it. And to think many of you bought 6,7, 8, or more! This is so rushed and Clay never really show his true talent. Sorry - RCA and Clay should have spent more time on it.
|Not worth it|
I bought the album and to clarify i do like it. My one concern is that i think the producers had way to much say in this album. I think it would be tons better if clay had more say to what was put on the cd. That said it still deserves a good rating!
|clay needs more artist liberty|
Keep standing up for what you believe Clay, we support you!
This is a great cd , better than I thought it would be, my advice is to , Buy it. Very few cds I have and I have over 900 I like every song , but this one takes the cake, song #1 , Bam
song #2 Bam
song #3 Bam
and so on , Bam, Bam, Bam.
I think this is a powerful, touching, fun album! I think every single song on it is terrific! Lots of different styles in it too to fit any mood! Such a sexy guy and it shows in his music. Definitely unique.
If you are afraid of new and different or you are constantly jealous of someone else's talent and success, then I suggest you do not buy this CD, because nothing 65,000 people say will convince you to do otherwise. But if you are in the market for beautiful music that sings to your soul, music that will cause your innards to flip flop several times, music that will make you cry, music that will mesmerize you, music that will make you feel like a teenager again, then by all means pick up a copy or two, if not more of Clay Aiken's new CD. Move over Elvis and Sir Paul...it is time for Clay.
|Not For the Fearful or Envious|
I have been anticipating the release of this CD since the finale of American Idol. All I can say is it was worth the wait.
|"Measure Of A Man" Measures Up!|
I love every song on this CD. The one thing about Clay that stands out from other artist, is his versatility. Clay can sing any song and make it his own. Clay has the ability to become the song and take the listeners along for the ride.
I rarely listen to secular music, and when I do it is to either classical music, or oldies. Today's music is too full of profanity and sex. I particularly do not want to hear the "f" word every other word. That is why Clay's album is so refreshing.
Wonderful CD! My review is 5 stars!!!!!!!
Clay- this the best cd i own! oh this cd is just so amazing! i cant stop listenin 2 it! clay has done a wonderful job and it was worth the wait!
Love alwayz and a fan foreva
This CD is awsome. I don't know what else to say. I have listened to whenever I can since I bought it at 12:01am on Tuesday morning.
|He is a good ol' boy with values|
This idol is super loveable with "chops" that will give you goosebumps. If you're looking for "REAL" music then this is the album for you!
This is undoubtly the best CD I have heard in a long time. Clay has a fantastic voice and I love every song on the CD. Clay you are a breath of fresh air to the music industry. Keep up the good work . My daughter bought it for me for an early birthday present, and I feel it is the best one I can get this year. Can't wait for your next CD to come out. God bless you Clay for your beautiful voice.
|The Best CD I have heard in a long time.|
If you all think that Touch is a dirty song, thats only because thats what your looking for in it, there are so many ways to interpret it, and seriously wouldnt you prefer a good look at love than something dirty like EVERY other pop singer portrays I mean what DO you let your kids listen to? The christian radio station? If you won't let them listen to Clay because of that song then I pity your kids, they'll never get to listen to any music ever.
|My thought on Touch|
To hear his voice, to see his picture, to listen to this CD there is only one word to describe the experience....THUD! Someone call me an ambulance, quick and make sure it has a CD player in it.
This is hands down the best cd that I have heard. The amount of emotion and feeling that Clay is able to put into every single song makes songs that would normally be corny seems to be amazing ballads. Everytime you listen to the CD it feels like he's singing to you and only you. You can connect to him, the music, and his lyrics in a way that you could never before imagine.
|Inspired and Uplifting|
Instead of Christina Aguleira and "Dirty" we now have Clay Aiken and "Clean"! Clay has started a revolution in the music industry. I LOVE all the songs! If anyone has problems with Touch go read Song of Solomon in the Bible. You go Clay!
|Clay Aiken and "Clean"|
I am so proud of you Clay!
|Clay is a gift|
You are so talented and sweet. I have been routing for you and so have all of my friends. I am 50"ish" :) and I thank you for all the joy you've given us with your music.
You have given so much happiness to this stale world. Thank God for you, Clay Aiken!!!!!!!!!!!

From the first, loved this CD - loved more than half of the songs and liked the remaining songs. Since I typically skip most songs on CDs by other artists (only listening to one or two songs), I rate this CD the best. Clay recently sang The Way on GMA. That was previlously one of my like songs. Now I love it. Perfect Day is fantastic. MOAM and Touch are also tops. As opposed to other CDs, the more I listen the more I love every song. WOW!
|Simply the Best|
I love this album. You can feel him in each song. As far as Touch, that song is amazing. It talks about love and a closeness between two people. If you wanna talk dirty songs, try again. He needs to reach ALL his fans. He is a wonderful guy and I hope to see him take home some awards!
|Clay's On The Move|
you can't get the lyrics of one song out of your head; when you can't keep still to another because of the music and Clay's voice; or another brings you to tears. Yes, this CD makes you go through every emotion and I love it. Thank you Clay.
|You know it's great when....|
This is the only CD that I have ever bought multiple copies of and the ONLY CD where I don't have to skip a few songs simply because I can't stand them. Look, I'm a mom with three young children...will I let them listen to all the songs on the CD...no. But there are a lot of "good" things in this world that I don't want to expose them to yet simply because it is not age appropriate, not dirty and trashy. Clay sings about mature love in a couple of these songs, not casual sex. Clay, keeping on keeping on!
This CD gets 5 stars!!
|5 points.. (best)|
Every song.. 100%
Everyone go get his cd!
wow.. best cd I have EVER
bought.. and the only cd
I bought MORE THAN 1!!!
Cant choose a favorite yet.. they are
ALL my favorite..!
