This album is faultless...and even though the sound and emotion is epic, there is a cool subtlety to the whole thing...it's big, but understated. I hear shades of sting, bowie, floyd (with the haunting backing vocals), peter gabriel and death cab for cutie...This record is not trying to be cool or edgy, it just IS. I really like it. I did not expect to like it as much, but I think it's brilliantly put together, and it's got me writing this review which is very rare for me...check it out.

When I first heard Gary Go supporting The Script I immediately knew he'd be one to look out for as his songs were catchy and performed amazingly well live. I pre-ordered this album and I must say his cover of Just Dance is incredible. Standout tracks for me are; Open Arms, Engines, So-So, Heart and Soul and Just Dance. Each song is crafted to perfection both lyrically and musically. I urge others to buy this album as I really think Gary Go is an underrated star of 2009 and I think he deserves recognition for his music. I cannot wait to see him supporting Take That on the 26th June either :) He writes with such honesty and his emotion really comes across in his music. Gary Go is definately a star in the making.

This is a really great album, which I bought after hearing 'Wonderful' on the radio.
Most of the tracks are just good quality pop, with a modern Take That style sound. Here are a few highlights:
Track 2 - A pop ballad but has lots of variety in it to keep it fresh - including passages in 5/4 time - keeps your interest.
Track 4 - Wonderful - the great song that people would have heard. The version here is a bit longer than the single version (just has a bit of repetition in it)
Track 6 - Brooklyn - another gentle ballad, but really well performed and sung - there are some high notes and big intervals that are just sung so effortlessly - a really natural singer.
Track 7 - Refuse to Lose - probably the 'heaviest' song on the album and builds to a wonderful crescendo at the end. Think of it as Elbow meets Muse.
Track 11 - Black and White Days - pop again, but great lyrics and a really nice flow, and again sung really well with an effortless style - my favourite on the album.

So - most of it is modern Take That -style pop, but really good pop! But with a few great ballads and heavier numbers thrown in, there's enough variety to make a really good album.

Format: Audio CD
Mr Go (nee Baker allegedly) is a very fine songwriter.

His eponymous album displays music of grand design.
Big tunes; big production; big ambitions.

He has constructed eleven strong compositions for us.
The finished product is hard to refuse.
It burrows its way insistantly into your musical receptors
and sits there waving and smiling. Refusing not to be noticed.

Strong melodies; widescreen arrangements and a voice which has
the capacity to bring it all together with verve and panache.

Opening track 'Open Arms' is a winner every inch of the way.
Chiming chords; pounding percussion and an affectingly
memorable vocal performance.

Most of the material has epic scope.
'Brooklyn', however, is a particularly beautiful
song which understands the meaning of economy.
The string, piano and brass arrangement is stunning.
World-class stuff !

'Heart and Soul' is another cracker!
Soulful, plaintive and uplifting.
An anthem to aspiration and hope.
Optimistic music for increasingly dark times.

'Speak' is, in all likelihood, the album's highpoint.
Complex; multi-layered and strangely elusive.
The shifting vocal harmonies are particularly delightful.

A consumately crafted piece of work.
Coherent and completely convincing.

Highly Recommended.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I buy a lot of albums on a whim and off of the strength of "Wonderful" this seemed a sensible purchase, and indeed, it is - a little too much so. The musicianship and production is excellent. The whole thing, however, basically falls short of high expectations. It comes across as "Coldplay Lite" - If you buy Coldplay albums and only listen to the singles, or if you've played Wonderful 20 times over on your ipod, then this is the album for you. Each song is basically another version of "Wonderful" as lyrical and musical cliché after cliché gets piled on top of the other. You could fall asleep, wake up 15 minutes later and think you are on the same song. That said, I don't like Coldplay and this record is quite a jolly listen along for those days you're not feeling that adventurous, or when you've the sort of friends over who drink Gallo wines. If you are looking for a safe buy, then buy this, if you want to hear more variety, and great tunes and songs done well by a real troubador, then spend your money on Teddy Thompson's "A Piece of What You Need".

Each of the songs on this album is perfectly crafted with interesting and moving lyrics, and a great depth to the production. Overall the sounds is really hopeful and uplifting - just put on Wonderful, sit back and feel better. Gary Go's vocals are warm and the whole record feels like a great big hug - Open Arms indeed!
