Destination Unknown (Gramac Records)

Album review Cover

Emerging from the Bakersfield music scene with gentleman cowboy charm and a potent warm-as-brandy vocal style, Victor Sanz captured the ear of country radio with his debut single, "I'm Gonna Be There." He followed with another chart entry, the blissfully young-and-in-love title track.

Here, Sanz contributes the tender ballad "Only You," which he wrote and sang for his best friend's wedding. He wraps a moody feel around the Paul Davis classic "I Go Crazy," seducing the listener even more by sliding into a romantic bilingual version.

Showcasing his prowess as a passionate balladeer, the Steve Wariner-penned "Now I'm On My Own" is an emotional masterpiece appealing to anyone who doesn't appreciate love until it's gone.

Brimming with romantic songs that fill the heart and others that kick with a young-country groove, Destination Unknown is a debut that's both solid and promising.
