Fall Into The Open (2007)
New York indie artist and sexy scenester Cris Gunther sails into his debut album combining contemporary hip-pop beats with some R&B and disco-era flair. Delving into issues of sexuality and betrayal, Gunther turns the heat up on standout tracks "Gotta Give," "Smoke & Mirrors" and "Sacred Sexuality" (where he croons, "Within the heart of Kama Sutra, there lives a need to seduce ya.") We'd do the Kama Sutra with him any day! Keo Nozari
