With Suburban Voodoo, Paul Carrack re-launched his solo career following a successful stint with Squeeze that produced a hit with his lead vocal on "Tempted." By this point, Carrack was playing with Nick Lowe, who produced Suburban Voodoo, and the album sounds very much like a Lowe album with Carrack singing. That's all to the good, though, since Carrack's supple voice is well-suited to Lowe's updated '60s rock & roll style. Carrack scored his first solo Top 40 hit with "I Need You," but that was one of the slighter tracks on an unusually tuneful album. ~ William Ruhlmann

Three years after his last collection of original material, Paul Carrack slides back into a comfortable groove with Soul Shadows. Perhaps the groove is a shade too cozy, sometimes drifting so close to the middle of the road it seems to veer toward old-fashioned easy listening, something where it's all surface and gentle vibes. The high-class homespun production doesn't help in this matter: apart from the drums, which are played by his son, Carrack plays every instrument here, so the proceedings are tidy and immaculate, the cleanliness tending to soften the soul. The real human touch comes from Carrack's voice, which is as warm and easy as ever while also benefiting from the gentle assurance of an old master. He never pushes too hard, never gets lazy; he's happy to be easy and if the songs don't necessarily hook, this certainly is a mellow good time. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

After singing standards with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on 2010's A Different Hat, Paul Carrack returns to his wheelhouse on Good Feeling, a bright, bouncing collection of blue-eyed soul. Perhaps the production is just a shade too clean -- it not only has a bright gloss but not a note is out of place, everybody is in the pocket -- but there's also a genuine warmth to Carrack's music, derived not just from his honeyed voice but from the precision of his seasoned backing band. It's a well-manicured groove but it's cheerful and appealing, and Carrack has a good set of songs, highlighted by the Chris Difford co-write "Marmalade Moon," but also featuring adept stabs at Motown ("Good Feelin' About It," "Time to Move On "), '70s smooth soul ("I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love"), and a deft tribute to Ray Charles ("I Can Hear Ray"). It is the work of an old pro, one who is comfortable in his skin and happy to play exactly what he loves, and that's what makes Good Feeling appealing. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

If ever a guy deserved more it's Paul Carrack. Carrack has fronted some of the most symbolic pop/rock bands in the last 30 years, from Ace to Squeeze to Mike + the Mechanics. He's written brilliant songs -- "Tempted," "How Long" -- and issued brilliant solo records -- Suburban Voodoo -- but is still regarded as a journeyman, rather than as a star in his own right. That's just wrong. It Ain't Over is a case in point for Carrack's consistency and brilliance. This set of 11 new songs were all penned and played by Carrack himself, with the exception of horns and strings. From the gorgeous soul groove of "Nothing to Lose," to the laid-back, sultry hook in the title cut, to heartbreaking Stax-styled R&B of "Empty Space," to the dirty funk of "Never Too Late," Carrack showcases his amazing versatility and his taut, in-the-pocket style of writing. As a singer, he's one of the most disciplined around, and still he manages to get across the deeper, subtler emotions in a song. If there some kind of "Pop Justice," Carrack's It Ain't Over would be on every adult contemporary station in the States. But few programmers seem to have no place on their playlists for smart, sophisticated, sassy, classy pop music. ~ Thom Jurek
