    After spending eight years working with Mike + the Mechanics, among other bands and side projects, Paul Carrack returned in 1996 with Blue Views. Because Carrack's side projects since the mid-'80s have all been variations on slick but soulful pop-rock, it's not a surprise that Blue Views sounds like it could have been released in 1991. That's not necessarily a bad thing, since Carrack's vocals are terrific and the sound is appealingly polished. The material is a bit too spotty to make it a triumphant comeback, but the best moments, including a version of the Eagles' "Love Will Keep Us Alive," are solid adult contemporary pop. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (5/30/97, p.72) - "...seems designed to establish the Ace/Squeeze/Mike and the Mechanics vet as a sort of Michael Bolton for people with taste. And it largely succeeds...all showcasing Carrack's effortlessly soulful vocals." - Rating: B
    Q (9/00, p.120) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Excellent car stereo fodder for those who like his work with Mike & The Mechanics: a collection of songs..."
