Elliott Yamin

Genre: Pop; Lead Performer: Elliott Yamin; Producer (group): Hickory

To get the most out of Elliott Yamin, the debut CD from last season’s scruffily soulful third-place finisher on American Idol, treat each track like a different episode of the show. ”Wait for You” is ballad week: ”You did your thing, dawg,” Randy might say. ”Alright” is hip-hop week: ”It sounded like last call at some ghastly karaoke bar” would be Simon’s reply. And ”A Song for You,” the Leon Russell/Donny Hathaway classic Yamin performed at his first Idol audition, is standards week: Cut to Paula, in tears. B
