Craig Sharpe

Album Title: I Am
Release Date: February 27, 2007
Genre: Pop
I can't be the only one who's spent countless hours pondering why American Idol contestants are inevitably more successful than Canadian Idol contestants. One of the most logical explainations is simply that America has a lot more money than Canada. When it comes to Idol, that often translates into subpar records. One has got to give Season 4 runner-up Craig Sharpe his due: he's managed to parlay his television appearance into a record deal. Unfortunately for the young singer, it sounds as if his debut album was pumped out as quickly and cheaply as possibleópresumably to ride that always shrinking wave of media exposure.

Thus, I Am reads as a half-baked rush jobólike Sharpe provided the top-end vocals for a boy band, and the producers didn't have time to mix-in the four other members. So Sharpe is left to harmonize with himself, and everyone knows, if you don't have the five essential characters in a boy band, there's not much point in paying attention. You need the Bad Boy and the Cute Guy and the Sensitive Guy. But props to Sharpe for including "No Change In Me," a bittersweet love ballad to his home of Newfoundland.
