Rick Parker - Wicked World - 1991

Parker's dynamic voice allows him to sound like three very different vocalists on the same album. On tracks such as "Cause Your Mine" and "Sally's Home" his voice bears a striking resemblance to that of Mark Knopfler. When the music slows, however, his sound metamorphoses into something more akin to Corey Hart. He rounds out his range with some INXS/Michael Hutshens style vocals. But with strong, consistent backing vocals bi guitarist Josh Blake, the album flows nicely. - L.A. Times
