What can I say about this album that hasn't already been said? It is a complete epic from start to finish. This is a cd when you buy it and play it, you feel like you have had your moneys worth and it will remain in your cd player for a long time, simply because it is that good. I promise anybody he is even thinking about buying this album, to do so. It is pure genius.
TELEPHONE X - This is an absolute classic, it opens with a ringing phone and eventually bursts into juicy slabs of guitar and an uplifting drum feel. Meanwhile the song has that darker sexual feel. Best song on the album. 10/10
BROKEN - Another guitar driven song, but the chorus has a great climax with magical qualities. 9/10
CARNIVAL GIRL - By far one of the weaker songs on the album, most will have heard it 8/10
ILL SEE IT THROUGH - This will be the ballad of the year if not the century. It is deeply moving and will even make the men among us cry. The song itself is very simplistic with a light piano feeling and haunting vocals by spiteri. 10/10
WHERE DID YOU SLEEP - For all those people out there who feel like releaving anger from a cheating partner this song is for you. Lyrics ask "where did you sleep, was it someone I know?". The song starts with basic guitar strum but builds up to a fantastic rock chorus. 10/10
AND I DREAM - Oh my god this song was sent from heaven. It mixes electronic pop with rock and it works like nothing before. The song itself is about how no matter what you have in live, it might not make you happy, you always dream for something more. 10/10
CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR - This song begins with blasting piano and handclaps and eventually reaches the most adictive chorus you will ever hear. It has an amazing uniquness about it.

I pretty much own every single thing Texas has ever produced singles and album wise, and I can safely say this ranks as one of their best ever efforts it's been a long wait worthwhile wait. Vocally Sharleen is as mighty as ever and the Spiteri/McEhlone songwriting partnership is as strong as ever. A partnership which has been given extra spice in the form of Robbie Williams ex songwriter (you didn't think he wrote them himself did you?) Guy Chambers & Ex Lightning Seed main man Ian Broudie .
They have tried something new with this album and all credit to them it works like a dream. I could do a track by track review but I'm not. What I will say is that every single track on the album has single written all over it. All the tracks stand out in their own right. All I can say is maybe Carnival Girl was the wrong track to release as a first single, perhaps And I Dream which sounds great live, would have been a better choice. All in all this album is definately worth your money. If you wish for it you will not be disappointed.

Texas return with a great new album that I have listened to constantly since buying it. I normally like to listen to different bands each day, but this album has me totally hooked!
Strangely , my opinion is that Carnival Girl (the 1st single) is perhaps the weakest track on the album; so if this has put you off purchasing the album, reconsider as the rest of the album is great. I am sure it will become a future classic.
"Telephone X" , "Broken", "I'll see it through", "And I Dream" & "Where do you sleep?" are all worthy of being released as singles.
Also I love "Place In My World" - its a great song.
As always Sharleen Spiteri's vocals are fantatstic & make your heart melt especially on "I'll See It Through".
Its a great & varied album with something for all tastes!
A must have album - so buy it now - sit back & enjoy.

Texas are back! A really good album, I especially like 'Telephone X', 'Broken', 'I'll See it Through' and 'Place in my World'
I doubt it will be as big as such albums like 'White on Blonde' and 'The Hush'
I feel after releasing their greatest hits, they are starting over again with a refreshing new sound but with Sharleen's never ageing voice, its perfect, she could sing anything!
I wish them all the luck and i havnt stopped listening to the album in days! Im hooked!

The true follow up to white on blonde, that the hush should have been. Texas are back on form. The band seem to have spent a lot of time on this album making it just right. As with white on blonde the tracks are varied from soft rock to classic pop tunes and then the collaboration with Kardinal Offishall on the carnival girl track, who would have thought pop-rock and rap would mix and work so well but it does. texas have been experimenting with different sounds and and it has payed off, every track is single material no album fillers here. the tracks have been well written making the album more than a collection of songs, its an experience. One not to be missed both by texas fans and music fans alike!

This is yet again another stunning album from this fantastic band. "The Hush" the follow up album to the quit amazing "White on Blonde" never really seemed to stand up to its great expectation. However after a two year break from the airwaves and the new arrival of Sharleen's baby, they have returned with a new sound and an album that is simply breath taking.
"Careful what you wish for" is ouzing pure talent. The first track to be released from the album "Carnival Girl" is by far no where near the best. The tracks "Telephone X", "I'll see it through", "And I dream", "Careful what you wish for" and place in my world" ar all much much better. I would have to lie to say that this album contained a bad track.
The album embraces a new sound for Texas. It has both some dance and rap influences but the Texas' foundations remain the same. It is a pleasant surprise.
If you are thinking about buying this album, stop thinking and start buying. It is by far the best album of 2003 that I know of and I gaurantee you wont be dissapointed.
