    Unreal debut. I'm really digging the tune "Freetime" on his disc New Sacred Cow. Thankfully, a good new disc to spin in the Cd player after so many misses. [​IMG]

    Michael, I posted this same question about a month ago and not one reply. I absolutely love New Sacred Cow. It is the cd I most frequently listen to. There is not one song that I dislike. On some songs it sounds like Kenna is a band from the 80s, mainly because of their voices. But I love it!

    Glad someone else enjoys Kenna!

    BTW, here's my post from Sept. 15th.

    Yeah Jeffrey I think his voice is like a cross between Michael Hutchence and Howard Jones. I just picked up the disc a week ago and its growing on me fast. Very 80s but obviously new sounding. My only grief is the overuse of that synth trademark sound he has, I feel in some spots its not really needed. But whatever, I guess it keeps it fresh.

    Good to know there's at least 1 other fan out there!

    Big fan. I actually got it because I am a huge fan of the Neptunes (Chad Hugo produced New Sacred Cow) and I really like Kenna and his music. I agree with Michael that sometimes the synth is a little overhearing for this type of music, but also at other times its use is really inspired and refreshing, so I guess you have to take the good with the bad. Also, Tower had it for something like $7, which is less than a Glenfiddich at a bar, so I said what the hell, why not [​IMG]
