Human Nature: Review and Giveaway!

I love getting a new CD and listening to fabulous music. But when it comes to being a music guru, few can compare with the hubby. He is all about music, especially Motown classics, which he nostalgically remembers listening to when he first arrived here from Cuba at age eleven.  Our family room bookshelf literally has three shelves dedicated to music, the majority consisting of some of the best music from Motown.

So when I opened up Human Nature's latest CD, Reach Out,  this past weekend, you would have thought I was opening an envelope with a thousand dollars in to review, my hubby was so excited. As luck would have it, we had just gotten into our car to run errands when I started opening the mail...so voila...there we were, a rainy Saturday and a new CD to listen to as we drove around town doing this and that.

In one word, I can say the hubby and I Loved it! (I know, two words). To be very honest, neither myself or my husband had really heard of Human Nature before this review CD -- but I am so thrilled to know of this awesome band now.

First off, I had to check these bad boys out on their CD cover. I am human after all.  And these guys didn't disappoint. All decked out in sweet 50-ish style ....they were looking GOOD. Yea. I can be shamelessly shallow and all. I'll own it. I need to imagine a band  singing just to me in concert as I listen to a CD, kwim?

Then we popped in the CD, and proceeded to get our groove on. From the first errand to our last, we were both singing, snapping fingers, clapping and bouncing around in our seats . The play list includes amazing Motown hits, such as "Baby, I Need Your Loving," "I Heard it Through The Grapevine" "Get Ready" with Smokey Robinson,  and my personal favorite, "You Are Everything."

"Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature" is selling out shows in Las Vegas and thrilling Motown fans nightly. After listening (several times over!) to my new CD, I can see why. These guys really are wonderful. You should do yourself a favor and listen for a few minutes to their songs, whether or not you buy the CD or enter the giveaway--seriously. They will make you smile.

A bit about more about Human Nature--

Since they signed with Sony in 1994, Human Nature have earned 23 Platinum Awards in their native Australia and have toured throughout the world. Their largest audience was at the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000 where they performed before 4 billion viewers worldwide. The band has had 17 Top 40 Hits and Five Top Ten Hits since 1996, has opened tours of Asia and Europe for both Michael Jackson and Celine Dion, and have won several Arias (Australia's version of the Grammy's) and virtually every other major entertainment award that country has to offer. Their last four releases in Australia have reached #1 on the charts there! 

I am thrilled with my CD, and am keeping close tabs on it ( the hubbs wanted to take it in his car to work today. Uh...I don't think so! These boys were staying with momma today!)
