The second CD from that most unusual of artiste, this not one for the fainthearted. Strongly opera influenced, and with Rhydian duetting with Kiri Ti Kanawa on "Benedictus", and Bryn Terfel on "Myfanwi", this is a powerhouse of a performance on a heavyweight CD collection.
Rhydian, (or his management!) have shown that he is not afraid to do something different, and in all it is an entertaining CD within its own genre of strong operatic style numbers. If you were expecting something along the lines of 'Rhydian performs Meat Loaf' as his second CD offering, then you will be disappointed, (though such a CD would be welcome !).
Theree are certainly no weak performances on this, and I found it fascinating listening; his rendering of "Land of My Fathers" is my personal favourite.
So, if you are feeling a little jaded with Cheryl or Lady Gaga, give this a whirl - it's different enough to be surprisingly enjoyable
