Considering how quickly this album was put together, it's a great debut from an x factor contestant. Marcus co-wrote 7 tracks, Gary Barlow wrote 1 and there are 3 covers. The vocals and production are great and the songs are all mid-up tempo - there are no ballads. My favourite tracks, after 1 listen are: Love & Hate, Mercy, Feel Like I Feel and Higher and Higher. If you liked Marcus on the x factor or are looking for a pop album with great vocals, I would definitely recommend this album!
