Format: Audio CD
Chris De Burgh has got a lot of stick over the years since The Lady In Red. Most of this is unfounded as his music has always been of a high quality. Like his recent albums, this new effort takes him back to his storytelling best.

A mix of musical styles can be found on the album most of which hark back to his earliest days. One World being the exception which is more like CdB of the latter nineties (although it does have a Man On The Line feel about it).

Standout track is Leningrad, a beautifully haunting melody which really does take you back to Far Beyond These Castle Walls or even Crusader (if you liked The Girl With April in Her Eyes, you will love this one). The song has a very russian theme with a hint of a dark communist orchestral part running through it which cresendos on occaisions.

Next best is My Fathers Eyes which is quite unique and has an Indian rythym running throughout. It rather reminded me of the Trillogies that he had on Into The Light and The Getaway.

I had drifted away from Chris De Burgh recently, but this album really does see him back at his best. If you are or were a fan, then buy this - you won't be dissapointed. If you were never a fan, but you like uplifting and haunting music then give it a go!

Chris De Burgh has always been a favourite of mine ever since I was at secondary school. I have most of his albums on cd and a couple of them on cassette. But this cd has got to be his best album so far. All the songs are of a very high standard. There are possible echoes of his earlier albums "Far Beyond These Castle Walls" and perhaps hints of "Crusader". I've only listened to it a couple of times but I know I'll be listening a lot more than that.

My favourites on here, if I were to choose, would be the haunting "Leningrad", the beautiful and gorgeous "The Grace Of The Dancer", the 9 and a quarter minute epic "The Mirror Of The Soul" that's split into 3 parts, "Spirit" with its African influence and "The Storyman". But I am going to choose the entire album because I think that every track on here is as good as anything that he's ever done if not better.

The original Storyman has struck gold with this offering and I'm glad to say it's pure and rich. A tremendous album that is an absolute must for all Chris De Burgh fans and if there's anyone out there who likes haunting and beautiful melodies with upbeat rhythms and gorgeous ballads then you will probably enjoy this too. I alsolutely loved this album. A real treat.

Chris de Burghs music just keeps getting better and better. This album is fantastic. Chris de Burgh is so much more than "lady in red" and his later albums like 'Quiet Revolution', 'Road to Freedom' and now 'The Storyman' hit that message home. In an age when the media dictate who is played on the radio for us to listen to and decide not to promote Chris' latest material i encourage everyone to get a copy of this album. For me 'The raging Storm' and 'Mirror of the soul' are just the best. Anyone who really listens to music and it's lyrics should listen to Chris de Burgh.

Okay, so I've got every album he's ever released, and some are better than others, but this is certainly up there with his very best!

"Storyman" is a very apt title - this is CdeB back to real, good-ole fashioned STORY-TELLING.

Some of the songs are reminiscent of his "Far Beyond These Castle Wals" and "Spanish Train and other Stories" era; others echo some of his more recent melodies, such as "Lebanese Restaurant" - but the overall effect is fantastic!

"The Grace of a Dancer" is an absolute stonker - a real heart-breaker - fabulous stuff!

"Raging Storm" sounds like it's taken straight out of a West End musical (a la "Les Mis!) - wonderful duet, great melody, rousing stuff!

I thought the Russian Choral influence lost direction occassionally, but doesn't detract from the album.

Also, the production and especially the orchestration (c/o RPO) is first rate.

I was somewhat puzzled by Paul Sullivan's "power-pop" reference - I never thought of CdeB as either 'pop' OR 'power' before!? Folk, chanteur, sure, but aside from some dreadfully corny 80's 'pop' songs (ie "Lady in Red") he's stuck to his origins thorughout his long, sustained career.

TOP ALBUM!!!

BUY IT, then see him on tour in NOVEMBER 2006!!!

I have always preferred the earlier Chris de Burgh albums when he captured my imagination with the stories he wove into his music and the comments he made on the state of the world. A lot of what he said I agree with, and now we have good solid lyrics with plenty of powerful music to accompany them. Once again I find myself in the worlds of his songs and enjoying every moment. He has a couple of duets with other artists which complement his unique style. I find it very difficult to choose a particular track but would strongly recommend the final track "My Father's Eyes" in which Hani Hussein sings with Chris. Also the title track gives a synopsis of the musical career of this versatile performer. To me this CD is a welcome return to the earlier style of a man whose career may span more than three decades, but still sounds as fresh as ever.
