James Otto’s third single from Sunset Man is a pretty solid effort. “For You” is sung with the emotion and soul that is reminiscent of Travis Tritt. This, however, doesn’t mean that there aren’t some problems with the over all product.
While he is willing to do just about anything for her, there’s one thing he can’t do: “Oh but now you’re asking too much/You want me to find somebody new/Oh I never thought I’d say this/But girl, congratulations/You found the one thing I can’t do for you.”
While his voice is good and the lyrics are sincere enough, the two just aren’t strong enough to overcome the weak melody and production. Unfortunately, this song is one of the weaker songs on an album of rather good material.
