With the success of 2012's Good Feeling and a whole new audience seeking out his music thanks to the recent BBC documentary,
'The Man With The Golden Voice', Paul Carrack has wasted no time releasing this new album.
Fortunately, quality has not suffered and this is another great addition to the Carrack catalogue.

I've had a promo of Rain Or Shine for several weeks now which is why I'm able to review it so soon after the official release date...

The album is effectively one of two parts with 5 new compositions and 5 covers.
The 5 new compositions are all written by Paul and are classic Carrack tracks.

Stepping Stone is a fine Northern-Soul stomper, Hammond organ high in the mix and a great way to kick things off.

That's All That Matters to Me slows things down a little and is Paul's touching reaction to the news that his daughter plans to travel the world for a year;
'If you're alright, that's all that matters to me...'

One In A Million is a mid-tempo ballad and includes real strings via the Stringzilla Orchestra.

Time Waits For No One finds Paul in nostalgic mood although the track is upbeat. Life's Too Short is similar in theme
and you'll probably have heard both if you've caught one of his recent live shows.

For the covers, there's 2 Ray Charles tracks. You Don't Know Me is a faithful interpretation of the classic
and Hard Times finds Paul really letting loose with a great vocal - it's my pick of the 2.

Paul Carrack is musical genius, no doubt about it, and this from someone who has seen him five times over the last few years.
His latest offering is a mix of new songs and covers, and whilst some are average tunes his voice has never sounded better (Elton John & Paul McCartney take note).
My pick of the 10 has to be the Ray Charles cover of 'Hard Times' which I also remember Clapton covering for his Journeyman album - Paul's vocals on this offering are sublime.
The album length is on the short side - maybe the addition of a demo or live track would give more value.
Overall though it's another great addition to the Carrack catalogue.
Keep doing what you do, Paul!

Just another gem from Paul Carrack. Seems to be getting better with age and hopefully there are many more musical offerings from this underated Gentleman.

5 stars because "the man with the golden voice" just gets better and better.

The only way to to judge for yourself is to listen to the quality, then go and see him live in concert.

Yes I am a great fan, but truthfully you won't find many better singers or musicians.

Paul has a soulful song for everyone.

Yet again another great album by the 'unsung' (not meant to be a pun) hero, looking forward to seeing him live in Basingstoke in February 2014.

absolutely brilliant - I want everyone to buy it and listen to it!
He doesn't sound any different to the 80's, or if he does it's better.
