Summary: Steven Knight is the rare artist who admits to listening to his critics, so while I don’t think constructive criticism is any more a necessity for a successful review than explicitly telling readers whether or not a track is worth their hard-earned bucks, I occasionally find myself doing just that when I genuinely like an artist…and sometimes not. [shrugs] Needless to say…the process of offering my well-reasoned opinion which usually involves mostly negative comments, in a friendly manner…might I add…. has been rendered almost speechless.

If you’re the chivalrous type – the sort of person who cherishes the thought of being in love; picnics in the park, long walks on the beach, soul mates, cross roads, things of that nature – you may just plummet, head over heals in love with Steven Knight’s latest release, Never Know.
In a world that for years has become increasingly filled with crude, profane and explicit R&B artists who act and sound like wannabe rappers, Knight is still what he started out as: a sensitive, gentlemanly singer who’s not afraid to put his feelings and emotions on display.
Never Know is about crossroads in relationships, turning points — and although it’s a ballet, it’s quite a bit upbeat in style and tone. The “Forever” singer digs deep into the multitude of implications of devotedness, discovering that for just about anybody… love is possible if we allow it.
“Sometimes I wonder if your heart is mine, is true love our future…tell me, are you suppose to be at my side,” he belts.
In Never Know he’s crafted an intriguing refrain: “Baby do you see Forever, will we be together, do you leave my heart cold.” Admitting his vulnerability, searching for a full-fledged sense of security in amour. But then he extends the thought with the kicker, “Do I leave you open, burning heartbroken, do we stay or do we go…I guess we’ll never know…”
Interestingly, instead of going for more of a pop sound this time out, Knight heads in an even more sophisticated, adult contemporary direction. Steven Knight soars with this release — and after the all-too-human ups and downs he’s experienced through the track, ultimately he comes out of it sounding…well…. pretty darn super.
