Time to Move is Crosby Loggins’ debut album,? but the poor guy already has plenty stacked against him: Not only is he the spawn of a celebrity (Footloose singer Kenny), he’s also a reality-television vet (MTV talent show Rock the Cradle, which he won). Give him a chance and you’ll find a set of handsome, harmless pop-rock fluff à la late-’90s hunks Tal Bachman and Shawn Mullins. Melodies? Pretty mushy.
Crosby Loggins won MTV's 2008 contest Rock the Cradle, a reality show where the offspring of celebrities faced off to prove who was the most talented, but it's fair to say that he had a leg up on the competition, as he was the only one fronting his own band and touring on a regular basis. Once he conquered Rock the Cradle, he was poised to move from the minors to the big leagues and so he did, signing with Jive, leaving his backing band the Light behind in favor of a set of studio pros directed by producer John Alagia, who helmed records by Dave Matthews Band and John Mayer. The latter makes a cameo on "Time to Move," the title track of Loggins' 2009 major-label debut, adding some thick, brown-toned blues fills that momentarily goose the album out of its sweet, sleepy sway.
