Sugary and uneven from Sanchez

Jamaica’s number one crooner Sanchez put out the Donovan Germain-produced album Now & Forever early last year with the smashing Longing to Come Home.

Now he has another set released. Also produced by Donovan Germain. But the two albums differ in quality.

Now & Forever was mostly self-penned whereas the new album Love You More consists of 12 covers, primarily from RnB artists.

You have mostly silky smooth hit songs in the lovers vein such as Caravan of Love, originally recorded by Isley-Jasper-Isley, Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love for You, first recorded by George Benson but became a smash hit for Glenn Medeiros, and Love TKO by Teddy Pendergrass.

For me it gets a bit just too smooth. And on top of that Sanchez singing is at times below par, especially in the wailing parts where he sometimes is off-key. It’s a riddle why veteran producer Donovan Germain has let this through. And I know that Sanchez usually sings better than he does on some of the tracks on this album.

It’s a shame that such a talented producer and artist didn’t made more of this album.
