Congrats to E. I just hope this spark doesn't wear off quick. Hopefully, E will still be in the top 10 next week.

Okay, I am satisfied that Elliott Yamin had the biggest indie debut ever. On the other hand, I have been rooting for him to be number one in every category, knowing that he is the best singer of the 21st Century.

I preordered it at Amazon and immediately listened to it when it arrived.This cd is HOT.I mean I normally don't listen to every single track on a cd by an artist but Elliot did a great job with his first effort here I play all of the songs and nothing gets on my nerves I like them all..Go Elliot you were my fav idol..

(HI RICKEY) WAY TO GO, GUYS!!! That's how it should've been - ELLIOTT #1 and CHRIS #2 - those were my "AI" choices. I'm proud of them BOTH but NOT SURPRISED by ELLIOTT'S ranking at all because HE'S THE MAN!!!!!
XXX OOO

Wow, I just watched Elliotts interview on the Ellen Degeneres show...and he sang Movin' On. Very interesting how Movin' On is performed with no background singers...it was much funkier than the CD version, and the refrain near the end of the song ...

****I'm tellin you, you really missed out on a good thing for sure, etc....****

...the timing was cut in half which makes gives it a slower feel as it's sung...was really a nice touch to the arrangement.

I'm not good at posting links to YouTube...so I hope this gets anyone interested in hearing it...to the site:

Congrats to Elliott, and this is without the added benefit of Media 19 and all of its money and influence to pimp the CD.

Hope that the project has legs...and will continue to sell well in the upcoming weeks and months. :)
