I am not sure what I expected from this album when it landed on my mat this morning. I know Jonathan Ansell has a great voice but it has not been maximised on disk up until now and the production on the previous G4 albums was, shall we say, not as good as it could have been.

Well this album is an absolute triumph, not only Jonathan but the guys from G2 Music and Nick Ingman all deserve the roses for this one. Vocal range and dexterity truly amazing, orchestration fantastic and the production values really high.

And obviously I am not alone in thinking this as yesterday Sunday 24th February Jonathan became the youngest tenor to top the classical charts with this album.

The track selection is appealing at first glance but when you hear some of the most evocative soundtracks ever written - plus a few hijacked from Handel, Verdi and Puccini - combined with this stunning tenor it certainly hits the spots others cannot even dream of reaching.

There are also some interesting collaborations, the duet with Hayley Westenra is quite lovely, their voices entwine beautifully round the love theme from Romeo and Juliet and Vois Sur Ton Chemin with All Angels as the choir gives a wonderful twist to the Les Choristes theme. But my own favourites are when David Garrett's haunting violin complements Jonathan on The Godfather theme and Se from Cinema Paradiso.

However the track to knock your socks off is the first one, Here's to the Heroes from Dancing with Wolves - have been lucky enough to see this performed live but it is equally stunning on disk.

With this album Jonathan is redefining the crossover genre as there are no poppy songs operatised just beautiful popular music from many different eras complementing that spectacular voice.

OH my goodness.... Didn't know what to expect - wasn't too sure if there would be some popera on there.... HOW WRONG I WAS!!!! This album just blew me away! The vocals, The arrangements.... well in fact the whole package!!!! The songs chosen were carefully thought out. I, in paticular, love Here's To the Heros from Dances With Wolves, Now We Are Free from Gladiator and My most Favourite at the Moment has to be Un Giorno Per Nol from Romeo and Juliet featuring Hayley Westenra - STUNNING!!!! If you get a chance you HAVE to listen to this album!!! And if YOU don't want to your Mum might so would make a PERFECT Mother's day present... My Mum is no longer with us so have been out today and bought this for my 2 sisters.....You know what? - THEY WILL LOVE IT!!! If I could rate this 11 out of 10 I would... I couldn't so 5 out of 5 had to do!! Congratulations Jonathan Ansell - YOUNGEST Tenor EVER to reach the Classical Charts No. 1 spot.......... Well Deserved!!!!

This Album is beautiful and worthy of it's number 1 position in the classical charts. My whole family are enjoying the CD very much, and Jonathan should be so proud at such a fantastic debut album.

I was lucky to be invited with a few other fans to attend Jonathan Showcase. What can I say - Jonathan in G4 was superb but as a soloist Tenor he is just something else. Anyone who saw him on X-Factor will know that as a student just out of Music college he was exceptional but 3 years on he has matured into a true star who will go far in the classical world. He has the opportunity with this album to sing material that truly represents who he is as an artist. He has moved to Universal Classics & Jazz & their influence on the album away from the muddled multi-genre tracklistings of G4 is a huge step forward. You need to give this album a chance even if you dismissed G4.

Now we are Free - superb vocals & this track really allows you to hear the lowers ranges of Jonathan voice. Mesmerising.

Heres to the Heroes - Excels & those long high notes - bliss.

My Own True Love - a personal favourite. Sang at Showcase with only a piano to accompany him & this showed just how good he really is. Audience in awe.

Chariots of Fire - original vocals added to theme track. Great to get new material.

Have a sampler CD of these tracks which will be worn out by 18 February. Can't wait to hear the full album - it is going to be a real treat.

Jonathan Ansell puts his all into these songs. His high tenor voice and his ability to reach those high and very long notes makes this an unmissable CD. His voice is addictive and you will want to play it over and over.

I was never into classical music until G4. And now Jonathan Ansell from G4 has gone solo with a classical album. I am discovering lots of new music thank to him!

Believe me - he could sing the phone book and make it amazing!

Do not miss this!
