Life You Imagine, Matt Goss's highly anticipated solo album, is the classy, swinging sound of ambition, passion, and the realisation of 27 years' experience in the music industry. If Goss's pop career hit an early peak with "I Owe You Nothing" and "When Will I Be Famous", the classic Eighties hits he enjoyed with Bros when he was just 17, it reaches an ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have album 24 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
As a fan of Matt Goss from his Bros days I had been eagerly anticipating the release of Early Side of Later. His 1995 album, The Key, although enjoyable was somewhat middle of the road so I expected more of the same and just looked forward to a couple of decent tracks - how wrong I was!
What I did get was a album that will remain high on my list of all time favourites, full of great tracks and amazing vocals. I defy anyone with a love for soul/pop to not like this album. From the first single Fly to the last track Goodbye, Matt treats us to a varying style of music.
The opening guitar strums of Watch Me Fall remind me greatly of George Michael's Waiting for That Day but then Matt changes key into a great commercial sounding catchy pop record with an edge.
Just for a Change will surprise every fan as Matt sings with an accent in a tone we've never heard before.
If you enjoy music which makes you feel good, vocals which leave you stunned then buy this album, I guarantee you that you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Matt Goss produces a Classic Album !!!!! 21 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
WOW! What an album, track after track of absolute class. If you love Great music then get this album.
Favourite tracks have to be :-
Fly - Great choice for a 1st single.
Watch Me Fall - If you love George Michael, this 1 is 4 u.
Many Roads - ridiculously catchy!
Just For A Change - very different, very Matt Goss!
Goodbye - Beautiful love song.
To be honest, the other songs are JUST as good, there is not a dull moment during this album. Please give it a listen, you will not be dissapointed. If you love George Michael, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Roachford, Will Young, Darren Hayes/Savage Garden, Rahsaan Patterson, Glenn Lewis, Maxwell, Michael Jackson & others you will LOVE this!
Best album of 2004 so far without a doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early side of later 29 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
Was a huge Bros fan back in the day... but was more of a luke than a matt fan but matt has such a great voice and this album proves that.
Theres not a song on this album i don't like... my fave has to be the title track but it doesn't mean the rest are not as good.
If you want a great album than buy this one it's great.
The album of the year.
Welcome back Matt goss!

5.0 out of 5 stars GIVE THIS ALBUMA CHANCE 25 Jun 2004
By petleg9
Format:Audio CD
Anew album by ex Bros singer Matt Goss may not fill you with excitement but please give it a try , don't miss out on a soulfull , mature and totally up to the minute album by a guy who has grown up a lot since 'When Will I Be Famous' and 'I Owe You Nothing'
Just like Robbie Williams , Matt Goss has broken out from the teen idol mould and produced some craking songs , like Fly - the new single and Fever a truly gorgeous song.
It show off his talent for song writing and the lyrics are meaningfull and from the heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Boy is Dropped 22 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Matt Goss has officially come of age with this album. Every fan who has bought his work before obviously would not have a bad word said against our hero but this really is something else. What makes this cd stand out from the other work that he has done is that you don't have to have appreciated the work he has done before to thoroughly enjoy this album.
It is a mix of melodic heart warming ballads and ridiculously catchy tunes that will have you singing them even if you don't want to. (there is a yeah yeah yeah bit in "many roads" which will haunt you forever!) "Just for a change" is extremely clever and once in the brain you will have a hard time getting it back out.
Above all, Matts talent as a songwriter comes to the fore as does his amazing vocal ability.
If you are not a fan now, buy the album and you soon will be.
There is something for everyone of all ages and almost all musical tastes on this album .He is back and he is here to stay.Matt Goss rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars early side of later-matt goss 30 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
this album is rated to be the first must have album of the year!
and rightly so, the album is excellent. matt goss has definately done himself proud with this album...anyone who doubts his ability to be a song writer, and doubts his talent as a vocalist, really needs to hear this album.
its been 15 years since bros, and matt shows with this album how hes grown and matured into a very talented man!

5.0 out of 5 stars This year First Real Must Own CD 22 Jun 2004
By "kymh"
Format:Audio CD
Matt Goss has a unique spin chilling vocal range that when he hits those notes makes you take a breath for him. This CD is truely stunning. There is an influence of George Michael x with Stevie Wonder with a hint or kick ass to it. Matt a home grown boy does the English proud, well done me old china

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 20 Mar 2005
By lijoh
Format:Audio CD
I absolutely loved this album and can honestly say that there is not 1 song I don't enjoy listening to. Matt's voice is sweet but soulful, perfect for the style of this album. My favourite song on the album has to be 'just for a change', it has great lyrics and a real catchy melody line. I also love 'Many Roads' and 'Goodbye'. Shame this album didn't get the exposure Matt truly deserves, but I'm sure with the recent publication of his brilliant autobiography Matt will be firmly back in the public eye. Cracking album well done Matt! Let's put it this way I purchased it last year and I still have it playing in my car!
