At first, Uncovered isn't as bad as you might expect. But on closer listening you realise that Ronn Moss is just as hilarious when singing as he is playing what the album's publicity calls "the dynamic fashion magnate, Ridge Forester", Brooke's on-again, off-again beau / husband / brother / secret lover etc. on the hugely popular TV soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful.
Uncovered is a bit like a soap opera. Slightly tacky, packed with cliches, overly emotive and intensely soppy when it goes soft. And wait, there's also Amor. The SA star and sometimes Patricia Lewis rival does some guest vocals on "It's So Easy".
Hearing Uncovered for the first time, you might be tempted to treat it as proof that karaoke is a way into the music business. But actually, Ronn Moss began his musical career before he began "acting", in a band called Player. They had a US #1 with a song called "Baby Come Back". Unfortuantely Moss's years of experience as a vocalist don't really show, and he didn't even write the songs himself.
Moss's opus appears to be a South African, Spanish, and Bollywood-only release, if international CD sales websites are to be trusted. What does it say about us that this bizarre anomaly gets mass exported here by a major record label?
Who knows, but it's a laugh. It's so bad it's beautiful. Soon no home will be complete without a copy. Which is just another good reason to make your travel plans early.
