1) Life is a Rollercoaster 10/10
Great uptempo opening track, one of Ronan's best songs, co-written by New Radicals frontman Gregg Alexander.
2) The way you make me feel 10/10
Written and backing vocals by Bryan Adams. This is one of my favs of the album, it has a wonderful raw feeling about it and has some great lyrics
3)In this life 9/10
If you love "When you say nothing at all" then you'll love this song. Slow ballad with an Irish feel. Lovely song
4) Heal me 10/10
Also co-written by Gregg Alexander. This song is brilliant and a great up tempo track. Though it may take a few listens to really appreciate it, it has similar style to Life is a rollercoaster and has a cracking instrumental and ending. Perfect song to listen to on your walkman on the way to work.
5) Keep on Walking 10/10
A mid tempo track which has an anthem chorus. A very positive song which again has a very Irish feel. Love this song
6) When you say nothing at all 10/10
Fantastic ballad which is a mix of country and traditional Irish music from the film Notting Hill
7) Brighter days 9/10
The hairs will stand up on the back of your neck when you hear this track - an epic ballad. Beautiful
8) If you love me 7/10
I didn't like this song when I first heard it. It reminds me a bit of "Don't be stupid" by Shania Twain.
9) If I don't tell you now 7/10
Written by Diane Warren, it's not very memorable, one of the weaker tracks on the album
10) Only for you 8/10
Ronan's famous Boyzone growl comes out in this song. More tradional Irish music with a memorable chorus you'll find yourself humming to
11) Addicted 10/10
I love this song. Ronan is experimenting a bit more with this song. Acoustic guitar combined with strings and emotional lyrics, fantastic
12) When the world was mine 8/10
Features Irish singer Brian Kennedy, soft up lifting song.
13) Believe 10/10
A driving song, written by Ronan and Patrick Leonard. A mid tempo track which is very up lifting. Another favourite of mine.
14) Once upon a lifetime 9/10
Thought-provoking ballad about getting older, becoming a parent and life. Reminds me of Boyzone's "Everyday I love you". Fantastic end to a great album.
Looking forward to hearing the second album!!!!!
"When You Say Nothing At All", "In This Life", "Only For You", "Brighter Days" and "Once Upon A Lifetime" are just gorgeous, with the Irish flavour in the music and Ronan's amazing voice just taking any listener away to the most wonderful place. The words have so much meaning and Ronan certainly feels and shows that meaning effortlessly! "When The World Was Mine" is a song that certainly remains in your head long after listening! "Addicted" and "The Way You Make Me Feel" are fabulous and for the more up tempo tracks, "Rollercoaster", "Keep On Walking" (with that fantastic unforgettable chorus!) and "If You Love Me" are songs that will always have you tapping your feet!
This is just a winning CD - you will always love it, no matter what mood you're in, it will always lift you up!
