You know Colin Hay's voice but you won't remember where from.

The Men at Work front man is now going solo. I don't know how long for and I only found out having seen him perform a cameo on the TV series Scubs.

This a fantastic album, there is not a bad track. Just the artist an acoustic guitar. Try it, I guarantee you won't be disappointed. There is real emotion in every track. From the heart breaking 'Maggie' and 'Don't Wait up' to the melancholy 'Waiting For My Real Life To Begin' you will be captivated.

In today's world of manufactured music and X Factor winners who get a recording contract but won't be remembered in two years time, other than by 12 year old girls, it is great to listen to a real musician and song writer.

I Have Yet to be Disappointed by a Colin Hay Album 13 Jan 2003
By James Choma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Is it possible that Colin Hay keeps getting better and better? It is -- and he's done it again with "Company of Strangers".

The past few years have been extremely sparse as far as music goes. There's a need for music like this, but due to formulaic radio station formats, you'll never hear it. What you're missing is one of the most talented, singer/songwriter/storytellers of our time.

Most everyone in the US has heard of the group Men at Work. Several great pop songs and videos, then they vanished. That's the general conception. Just a few folks know the guiding force behind the band was (and still is) Colin Hay. Colin's had several solo CD's from the late 80's through the 90's and into the new millenium, each brilliant pieces of work. This latest release has Colin continuing the the same vein as always: good voice, great music and a great backing band.

It's really hard to go wrong on any of his CDs. If you can find "Looking for Jack" or "Wayfaring Sons" count yourself as lucky -- they've been out of print for sometime. They're wonderful albums. "Peaks & Valleys", "Topanga", "Going Somewhere" and "Company" are still in print and worth getting.

If you were a fan of Men At Work, here's the brains and the voice behind the band. Don't get the albums so much for nostalgia reasons (his work is lower key than MAW), but get them for the great music and lyrics. You won't be disappointed.

Fantastic!! 29 Sep 2000
By Jennifer B. Barton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Although I LOVE his voice, I didn't want to take a chance on this one as there are no samples above and I hadn't heard any of his music since the late 80's. I read somewhere that it was an attempt to capture "the feel" of his live performance which also scared me. Luckily in this case,that doesn't mean a lot of audience clatter, sing-a-longs, and poor sound mixing. It is strictly acoustic which means that you actually hear real talent on the guitar (how unique)and the quality is absolutely excellent.
The songs are beautiful and meaningful and I promise that you will find yourself singing them to yourself at work and in the shower. Don't let the lack of tracks above set you off. I made the decision to buy the album when I heard him sing My Brilliant Feat on an on-line radio broadcast out of one of the M states up North (sorry, they don't teach Texans geography).
If you still have doubts, check out his official web site for sound bytes.

Better each time 12 Feb 2003
By Jim Rinaldi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Everyone remembers Men at Work. Few seem to know the that founder and leader of that super group, Colin Hay, just released his seventh solo CD, "Company of Strangers." His first solo venture, "Looking for Jack," received high praise from critics in 1986. Unfortunately, the public did not take to it and Hay's career has been muddled in obscurity. However, his art has gotten better and better with each release. If you are a fan of music, do yourself a favor. Order "Company of Strangers." After hearing, you will no doubt be going back online to purchase Hay's other 6 solo releases.

Shot in the Dark Hits the Mark 27 Sep 2002
By T. Long - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this album out of curiosity. Now it is one the favorites in my collection. Colin Hay provides thought provoking and wonderfully entertaining lyrics. Listen closely and you will hear an impressive vocal range. Colin's acoustic guitarwork also stands out by itself. There is plenty of diversity in tone and subject matter while also maintaining a cohesive and unique style that can only be Colin Hay. If you are a fan of Men at Work this album will be a change of pace but definitely a must buy. If you want an acoustic album with great lyrics and a distinctive style, this album is for you even if you never heard of Colin Hay before.

an unbelievable voice, lot's of heart and humor too 25 Oct 2000
By todd m gross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I saw Colin a few months back at a small (100 folks, maybe?) show in NYC. He was great! Fantastic vocals and acoustic playing. This disk pretty much captures that experience, save for all the cool and funny stories he told inbetween the tunes. A couple of the tracks are a little hokey in the lyrical department, but Colin's voice more than makes up for that.
Really, I don't understand why he doesn't have more of a following...cause, this guy is the real thing.
