Product Description

Product Description

A new Brian Kennedy album is always a welcome contribution to the contemporary music scene, and with "Homebird", this richly-talented individual may well have produced his finest album to date. This double disc album, including 14 new studio tracks, and a bonus disc of remixes and bonus recordings, follows hot on the heels of Brian's top 5 George Best Tribute single, and self penned Irish entry to the Eurovision Song Contest, "Every Song Is A Cry For Love".

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight in at Number One in my CD collection 14 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
This CD has not been out of my stereo since it arrived shortly after its release. I love this album from beginning to end. There isn't a single track I don't like or ever skip.

Favourites include "West", a simply arranged song which showcases Brian's pure, slightly mournful voice to perfection; the entrancing future single, "If you don't believe in me", co-written with Calum MacColl and Ronan Keating; the gloriously upbeat and happy "Go with my heart"; the slightly plaintive "For once in your life" and the hauntingly touching "Turn to me".

Of the two discs, I think I even prefer the bonus disc with its acoustic sessions, if only for the fact that it contains my absolute favourite tracks, the sublime "You Are" and the lilting "Silver Hearts on Chains", the latter co-written with Fairground Attraction's Eddi Reader.

The beauty of this album for me lies in the simplicity of the production. Nothing is allowed to overshadow the real star of this collection of songs - Brian's wonderfully pure and emotive voice.

Anyone thinking of buying the album should definitely do so while the bonus CD is included in the price. You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A coming of age for a true songcraftsman. 9 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In my experience all of Brian's recordings have been very good to excellent, but as noted by others, Homebird impresses as being another step further toward perfection. My initial listening was via my good new headphones (Sennheiser PX-100's) and it was the quality of production which initially enthralled me. After a few days rotation in the car CD player I was convinced that all these songs are superb, and that the album as a whole is extremely well crafted. "Homebird" sets a standard to which other artists must aspire. Brian Kennedy and Calum MacColl deserve to take a deep bow to wild applause.

In Brisbane we've been lucky enough to see Brian up close and personal working solo - but it would be wonderful to see his band in full flight with this material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can It Get Any Better Than This? 7 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
This just simply has to be the best ever record I have purchased in over 25 years of buying music, I have well over 200 albums in my collection to date - ranging from The Beatles thru to AC/DC via Celine Dion, Dire Straits, Kylie, Led Zepplin and everything in between!

Brian's vocal ability is out of this world and I thought George Michael could sing. Talking of which Careless Whisper has, after 22 years, just been replaced as my favourite ever song by - If You Don't Believe In Me. There is not one duff track on the album. I bought it 3 days ago and it hasn't been off my system since. Oh, by the way, I went to see Brian in concert in Manchester - the best concert ever? YES! And I didn't think anything could ever top AC/DC 6 years ago. Buy it - please. Forget x-factor. Eurovision? How can a proper singer only finish 10th? Oh Lordi!
