I've reviewed several other Paul Carrack releases in the past but none have ever received 5 stars.
I feel it's thoroughly deserved here and will be an incredibly difficult project for Paul to follow.

People have complained in the past that Paul can be a bit insular, recording albums in his home studio
and tending to play practically all the instruments as well as taking control of production...
no such complaints on this occasion. Paul has employed his good friend Peter Van Hooke to oversee production
and David Cullen has done the arrangements and conducts the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for recordings
which took place at Air and Abbey Road Studios. The results are his best album to date, Paul has never sounded better
and the arrangements of many well know songs are wonderful.

This is an album from a bygone era, the kind of thing Sinatra was doing long ago. It seems to be something
several artists have looked at recently with Peter Gabriel's Scratch My Back and Sting's Symphonicities to name a few.

Paul has said his inspiration was Joni Mitchell's highly recommended Both Sides Now but rather than sticking with his own compositions;
'I Live On A Battlefield', 'Eyes Of Blue', 'Love Will Keep Us Alive' and 'It Ain't Over', he has also taken on several standards
including a couple generally associated with Ol' Blue Eyes himself, 'All The Way' and 'For All We Know'.

I was astonished to read the two less than enthusiastic reviews about this CD. Although I love Paul Carrack's previous work and have followed his career, I found it to be an interesting change of direction and his voice seems ideally suited to showcase the tracks included on this album. He never 'over sings'and each track seems effortlessly perfect. It was wonderful to hear him singing with a full orchestra and the beautiful, melodic arrangement of the tracks is to be commended. I've seen Paul sing four of these tracks live at a recent BBC concert (with the BBC Concert Orchestra) and it was an outstanding performance - he's the real deal and can sing them live as beautifully, tunefully and soulfully as on the recording. I would rate this as one of the best CD's I've purchased in 2010 and hope he follows it up with another similar collection. Highly recommended!

The match with Paul and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is a perfect example of harmony. Just sit back, relax and listen. Even better if your computer can mix the tracks together, give it a go. We sat down with a bottle of wine and did exactly that, it was chillout time. Paul you have done it again, lets have a volume 2, without doubt it would sell. For those who may have some doubt, give it a try, the only way I can describe the album is its like the smoothest chocolate with a "Baileys"

I was sitting and putting on my make up while listening to the radio and this sweet velvet voice and gorgeous music just bathed my ears in honey....I was at once whisked away on a cloud of audio delight. Lost in Paul's vocal dexterity but all too soon the 2 songs ended and I was gently placed back in my kitchen. I must have lost time because when the music ended I found that I had completed my make up application and had only the finishing touch of lippy to apply.. Simply, magical :)

Paul's voice has no sign of age, and infact shows only experience and good use..
If you buy this CD you will not be disappointed.
The emotive pull of his tones and beautiful music arrangement is bliss..

Dont think about it, Buy it :)

PURE CLASS...
Thank you PAUL :)

PS..I had never heard of this guy in my life and I am no spring chicken! but I am now a fan :)

This is one of the most relaxing albums I have listened to in a long while. First heard at a friends' house and enjoyed so much went home and ordered straight away. Did not know he had recorded so much on his own and shall be working my way through the rest of his albums.
