Sasha Alexander boasts superstardom in Europe and a nomination for Best International Male Artist at the 1999 MTV Europe Awards. Yet, he still remains a mystery here in America. His American debut release, Dedicated To … only brushes the colorful surface of what we may consider a soulful ballad or a funky pop tune.
Dedicated to … attempts to capture the outbreak of pop in America but also offers a teasing fusion of other musical genres such as R&B and soul. Because he’s smashed together his version of three different musical genres, the album lacks cohesiveness. Sasha should have stuck with the straight-and-narrow path and composed an album embracing solely pop creations, possibly giving him more of a chance to survive America’s teenybopper era.
