CD REVIEW: Jason Castro "The Love Uncompromised EP"

When Jason Castro was kicked off of American Idol, it was just the career move that he needed. His debut EP, which includes an acoustic version of his debut single "Let's Just Fall In Love Again," is a testament to why he wasn't right for that competition. Don't get it wrong though, it was just the springboard he needed to make sure people knew who he was and what he could do. His must is so light and happy and sends a message of love all the time. Although he seems to fit many specific labels, his music doesn't really fit the mold of any one style. He just makes sincere and performs from the soul. His mellow voice is going to take the world by storm just as Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz have done recently, but for Jason Castro, it's not just all about the beach and the sunshine. The title track from the EP is a simple love song with a great message and the EP also features a guest appearance by bluesy singer Serena Ryder. Throughout the short EP he delivers a kind of pop rock that attracts fans of all styles of music. This EP is just a taste of what's to come and is sure to gain him more success than the title of "the next American Idol" ever could.
