Biography

Biographyby Evan C. Gutierrez

John Barrowman was one of few musical theater personalities to make a successful foray into a recording career. Though many stage stars release an album at some point in their careers, seldom are they met with chart success and longevity. Barrowman was born in Glasgow but raised, from the age of nine, in Illinois. Throughout his high-school years, Barrowman ... Read more in Amazon's John Barrowman Store

Product Description

Product Description

Best known for playing Captain Jack Harkness in the BBC series’ Torchwood and Doctor Who, he has also been a judge on the award-winning BBC1 entertainment shows How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, Any Dream Will Do and I’d Do Anything. He has also hosted his own primetime Saturday night TV extravaganza, Tonight's The Night and graced London’s West End as Zaza in the Olivier Award-winning La Cage Aux Folles.
John Barrowman is perhaps his most personal album to date – the album he has always wanted to make. As with 2007's Another Side and 2008's Music Music Music, it is a masterful, evocative and uplifting journey into perhaps the man's first love, musical theatre, comprising his favourite moments from Cats, Mamma Mia, Jersey Boys and Mack and Mabel to name a few. The album is filled with instantly familiar classics - "Memory", "The Winner Takes It All", "My Eyes Adored You" - to the less immediately familiar, such as "So Close", a spine-tingling duet with Jodie Prenger. Also included is a beautiful version of "You’ll Never Walk Alone" from Carousel, a song which his mother sang to him as a child. Every track holds an emotional relevance for John.

I enjoyed the songs - most of them are on the 'feel good' side of ...feelings. John Barrowman's voice seems more mature, warmer, and stronger than before. But be advised, this is music for romantics and/or romance. Is good to listen to it when you share some wine or just some restful moments with your partner. Or alternatively when you are driving through rush hour and you want to keep some of your sanity intact. If you want something more hip-pop try his 'Swing Cole Porter' cd ;).

John Barrowman claims in interviews that "what you see is what you get". I don't believe him because inside the enthusiastic, passionate and endearingly giggly entertainer is an equally passionate but quieter, more reflective soul who doesn't always get a fair amount of airtime. However, in this very personal choice of songs, this aspect of his singing style is allowed to shine through especially in the slower numbers where his mellifluous voice seemingly effortlessly floats up to his higher register without strain. When I saw "You'll Never Walk" alone on the track listing I thought that this would be one to skip, but JB has reclaimed it from the football terraces and returned it to its roots as a song of love and hope. His wistful rendering of "Memory" is also refreshing. And of course he sings his heart and lungs out in the more up-tempo showstopping numbers but always with the lyrics clearly enunciated and the notes spot-on (well you would expect nothing less from such a consummate professional).

So buy this disc even if like me you don't recognise some of the tracks or think you won't like some of the tracks you do recognise - I guarantee you will be entertained.

Just a minor production niggle - the informative sleeve notes in what must be in 4 point font in white on black are really difficult to read, but is slightly better than Music Music Music's pale salmon pink on white.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 10 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
My mum bought me this CD as I am a big John Barrowman Fan and listening to it for the first time I wasn't that impressed, as I didn't recognise most of the songs. But the more I listened to them the more I fell in love with the songs and the way John Barrowman sing's the songs are absolutly stunning. The duet with Jodie Prenger was amazing she has a stunning voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glad to hear John come back to his roots! 29 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album is, to say it in a word, Excellent. I know others have complained about duets, versions of songs, or other things, but the only thing I can say is the scope of songs is a bit too narrow (too many from the same writers, same show). Otherwise, John's performance is fantastic, especially on the ballads, and he and I share that same admiration for the material of Barry Manilow (how else would he have known the song, "The Kid Inside" from Barry's SHOWSTOPPERS album)? As someone who actually had to audition for Barry's band playing that song, that was the first time I'd ever heard it. The show it's from only lasted a few performances, but had this one stellar song, which John does justice.

I like the fact that on "Memory", he uses a different-type of arrangement than others in the past (not simply a 6/8 timing that is quite standard). The arrangements all-in-all are excellent, and plenty lush with strings and such, but it's John's voice that soars on this material. This is his genre, and he should be commended for coming back to it in full force and full voice.

Items of note:

1. "The Winner Takes It All" --- excellent arrangement, and vocal performance is stellar. Different than ABBA or the show it "came from" (we all know it was a hit first, then a show), and it's impressive. Do we really need the thundering drums at the end for drama? No ... but it still is a good recording.
2. "I Won't Send Roses" --- what a marvelous cut! John's voice is nearly perfect for this song (no one is perfect, people!), and he does an excellent job at conveying emotion and feeling in a lesser-known song from one of Jerry Herman's musicals that didn't quite do as well as, say, MAME.

Bless him!
There are so many great songs I would like to here him cover. The trouble is that he has such a love for "show tunes" the advisers and producers have not given him the modern tunes to consider. Maybe next time, but till then a brilliant album

5.0 out of 5 stars John Barrowman The New Album 13 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
John Barrowman really got it!!what a voice!!! From Memory,Don`t Cry out Loud,You Never Walk Alone to Abba`s the Winner Takes it All, I love it and love to listen to him, he is very speciell (afraid of my spelling)and I am not good enough to be detailed enough here, there is so much I wanted to say about this CD but I have problems to set word on what I feel. I am from Norway and my english is not good enough to be detailed and specific to this spesiell CD I am sorry, if I only could write it in Norwegian:)). But I will say buy this CD and play it and enjoy!! It`s Barrowman on his best after his CD Another Side,these two are my favorites!
