Product Description

Product Description

Ronan Keating's first album of original songs in six years, Fires sees the singer reunited with the team behind "Life is a Rollercoaster" and "Lovin' Each Day".

Discussing Fires, Ronan said: “The album is back to proper pop again. I’ve been working with the guys behind ‘Life Is A Rollercoaster’ again. I’ve been spending my time getting this album just right and I’m excited about people hearing it.”

BBC Review

Pardon the pun, but life’s been something of a rollercoaster for Ronan Keating since his last album of original material, 2006’s Bring You Home, tickled the UK top 10. The Dublin-born singer’s seen the band that made his name, Boyzone, reform after a seven-year hiatus; his bandmate and great friend Stephen Gately passed away in 2009; and his 13-year marriage collapsed in 2011.

Such professional and personal turbulence certainly seems like suitable inspiration for a powerful, personal comeback set. But while Fires is, at times, greatly enjoyable, harking back to Keating’s turn-of-the-millennium mainstream radio ubiquity, it never channels emotions in a way that connects the listener with the obstacles this performer’s had to overcome.

But perhaps Keating’s objective with Fires was to escape any lingering demons – and, if that was the case, he’s mostly succeeded. I’ve Got You opens with lyricism cursing Keating’s missteps; but it soon enough explodes into a triumphant, U2-recalling pop-rocker, with the singer stretching for, and reaching, the kind of captivating vocal performance that few in his league can manage.

Throughout, tried-and-tested metaphors are prevalent in Keating’s lyrics – but, then, what’s pop without some transparent figures of speech? Oxygen is about – you guessed it – an object of our protagonist’s affections acting as his “oxygen” (sigh). When Love You and Leave You speaks of there being no smoke without fire, that background drone isn’t on the track itself – it’s a thousand listeners groaning in unison.

Strong production from Greg Wells (Adele, Katy Perry) and Gregg Alexander (who’s got previous with both Keating and Boyzone) keeps the tone cohesive, slower numbers balanced well by up-tempo cuts. Nineteen Again and NYC Girl are throwbacks to Lovin’ Each Day-period joie de vivre. They’re more Back-to-the-90s Butlins Weekender than contemporary club dancefloor-fillers, but Keating knows his audience well: they’ve grown up together, their relationship strongly symbiotic since day one.

Some truly from-the-heart lyricism would have pushed Fires into a higher bracket of critical appreciation, and there are duds here (Lullaby’s sentiments are well-meant, but they’re awfully expressed). But a few bloopers aside, this is probably Keating’s best album since his eponymous debut.

After the last couple of albums which consisted of mainly dreary cover versions, Ronan finally releases an album of new material. He has worked with similar producers to his last couple of proper studio albums. It kick starts with the upbeat track "fires" and includes several other cracking songs including "nineteen again", which would be a fantastic follow up. This is Ronan's best album in ages!!

This is Ronan Keating at his best, back to what he does best catchy pop songs. Lovin Fires the first single to be taken off the album and wasted light which is one of my faves also on there is Lullaby which is a different sound from Ronan with the rap in the middle,NYC Girl and Nineteen again also very catchy pop songs.In all a fantastic album for any Ronan Keating fan or if you aren't give it a try i'am sure you won't be disappinted,Can't wait for the Fires tour to start now to listen this fantastic album live.
