This album is something new for Alfie as he himself states in the booklet that comes with the cd. It is different and needs to be listened to with care. Alfie has taken some well loved songs, good songs and has given an interpretation which takes care to express the meaning and sentiment of the story behind both words and music It is the sensitive approach, and his voice is wonderful, toneful and expressive.

Don't judge the cd after just one hearing, play it again and again and each time you will find something new, perhaps for the first time understand the story behind the tunes you have sung and heard for years, discover anew - beautiful.

I was a bit concerned knowing the song selection that it might be a bit "middle of the road", but having listened to this album a couple of times now, how wrong I was. Alfie brings his own unique take and wonderful voice to give his own interpretation to each song. I particularly loved The sun ain't gonna shine and Angel from Montgomery. Wonderful.

When you've spent your whole career refusing to have others dictate in which box you must reside, one could understand if a certain world-weariness sets in. Alfie Boe, to his everlasting credit, never allows that to happen. Instead, he keeps his eye on the destiny he KNOWS to be right, and pursues it with a passion and gusto that is something to behold. The result: beautiful albums such as "Storyteller, Alfie's latest step on his personal journey of discovery. The tenor delves into classic Elvis and Simon and Garfunkel brilliantly. Even more intriguing, he explores some down-home, uptown, Sunday-go-to-meeting rhythm-and-blues, and that part of the journey is beyond brilliant. "Rank Strangers"... "Angels from Montgomery." Oh, my!!! ... Then there is "Wayfaring Stranger." This incredibly sultry, sexy and soulful adaptation doesn't just take you to the roots of R&B; it drills down into its marrow. Believe me, if you don't feel New Orleans and Memphis stirring in your soul, check your pulse because there might be a problem!

I have read with interest the reviews on here and decided to add my four penneth.
I have to say that the Rolling Stones and Elvis have always left me a little cold but having become interested in Alfie Boe through his opera and musical theatre performances I have stayed the course and followed the musical journey that he seems eager to follow. My CD arrived this morning and I put it in the laptop and had it on the garden while I painted the fence. The neighbours were treated to a consummate display of musical interpretation - from the build up of It's Over and Don't Let Me Be Understood to the lullaby feel of Can't Help Falling in Love with You to the slowed down blues version of It's Now or Never and the wonderful jamming session on Rank Strangers - apparently a one take wonder - all done with Mr Boe's beautful melodic voice and superb musicians. Probably my favourite though is Wayfaring Stranger. To those who say these are covers; well they are but then so are all opera CDs and musical theatre unless you are in the original that is. (a little unlikely for followers of Puccini, Verdi, Porter and Gershwin).I have now replayed the CD and am noticing things that had originally passed me by. So I would say give it a go and then give it another go - it's worth the ride.

I looked forward to Alfie Boe's new album Storyteller with great anticipation and I wasn't disappointed. The selection of classic songs is beautifully chosen to suit Alfie's lovely melodic voice and the arrangements complement his voice very well. In particular, Can't Help Falling in Love With You sung as a lullaby sent tingles down my spine.

Alfie can sing anything! I love the new choice of songs. I grew up listening to so many of these and love his take on them. His voice is undeniable.

Forget that the songs on this album have been covered before and listen to the magic as Alfie makes each and every one of them his own. Alfie Boe is a truly talented artist with a wonderful voice and this album proves that he can lend that voice to any genre of music.
