I've never watched X Factor, never been interested in any of reality singing shows, but few days ago my friend bought me the album Rhydian as a birthday gift. She said "go home and listen to the voice of this man". I've never heard for Rhydian before, what a shame many would say, but as a working woman there is no time for much music in my life.
I listened to 11 tracks on this album and than listen again and again....the voice of Rhydian is something so special, beautiful, unique it's difficult even to describe if you are not musically educated. But more than the quality of his voice the pure, deep emotions which he is able to fill up his voice with have impressed me tremendously. He cries, he smiles, he promises, he loves, he does everything through his voice. I've never come across any singer who has been able to tell the story of the song with such an artistic power and at the same time has made me feel the part of his emotions while following his magical voice.
The artist's ability of taking the listener into the world of his deepest emotional secrets, fears, hopes while singing I assume is the sign of the real artistic power and Rhydian has got this ability in the abundance.
There is a great future ahead of this young man!
The songs I like the most would be "I Am Coming Home Again", The Impossible Dream, There Will Be A Time, Who Wants To Live For Ever, Not A Dry Eye In The House, To Where You Are, What If,....OMG, I love them all.
