  1. As an artist himself, he's proficient but generic.
  2. Break off a single or two and leave the rest for aspiring producers to study.
  3. Cruz's singing lacks personality, and Rokstarr is ultimately a collection of decent, but generic, Eurodisco tracks without a star--"rok" or otherwise--to hold a listener's interest.
  4. Although Cruz’s downfall comes when he acts the player (‘Break Your Heart’, ‘Dirty Picture’), it’s obvious his real talent comes when he exchanges vocal manipulation for balladeering as on ‘Falling In Love’, and disregards romantic cynicism for a rather hopeful ‘The 11th Hour’.

He needs to just stick with producing. Full Review »

    Well made, yet utterly forgettable. This is the epitome of pop-by-numbers. It's not a bad album as such, it's just unbelievably generic. AWell made, yet utterly forgettable.

    As únicas que salvam são Higher,Dirty Picture e Break Your Heart
