One of the few artists around, that I actually buy every thing he produces and in the real physical form of CD. To me thats a sign of a special talent. Most of the time I'm content to stream from Spotify or buy an MP3, but those things seem quite temporary and just a little disposable and Fords talent deserves a more permanent medium, something you can touch, something that will survive a failing hard drive.
So, as is my habit, I ordered this CD as soon as it became available.
Is it any good?
Well, for the most part you won't hear it on the radio. You probably won't see him singing "Every Time" on the Graham Norton Show and i'd probably die of shock if someone chose to cover "what's not to love" on X Factor, but that feeling of liking something that most have missed is probably why it resonates so strongly with me. So yes it is good, it's very good and you should definitely buy this CD and the others that precede it.
You should also see him live as that is an experience not to be missed.
Fame appears to have passed Ford by and he seems ok with that, "I'm proud that I never had whatever it takes" and maybe I am too, but I do want him to keeping writing great words and music so please buy this CD, or MP3 if that's your thing. You won't regret it.
I choose this.
