Product Description

EAN 5050003002025 -COVER ALBUM 2001

Amazon.co.uk

Wanted will make the ideal gift for any admirer of Cliff's "Millennium Prayer". Like the medley of the Lord's Prayer and "Auld Lang Syne" in the aforementioned tune, this collection is packed with covers of Cliff's favourite compositions. The karaoke machine orchestrations, and Bontempi keyboard-style sequences, premiered on Christmas 1999's number one single, get plenty of exposure here too. Kicking off with a rather similar, but unadventurous version of "Somewhere over the Rainbow", performed over an arrangement of "What a Wonderful World" the tone and style of almost the whole album is established by this multi-layer opener. Tracks such as "And I Love Her" and "Do You Wonder" prove that at times Cliff can excel if he puts his mind and mouth in gear. His reinterpretation though of Elvis's "All Shook Up" complete with lyrical quotes from Richard's 1976 smash "She's a Devil Woman" and occasional use of the vocoder, is rather "naff" to say the least. I also remember Roland Rat doing a more competent cover of another Presley classic featured--"Love Me Tender". As you would expect musical experimentation isn't a priority on Wanted but perhaps it's an honest recognition that however hard he tries, even recording a garage / r 'n' b tune, or shaving all his hair off--Cliff will never be cool. Why should he care anyway? Wanted will delight those already converted to the magic (and unhip-ness) of Cliff. --John Galilee

Sure, I've been expecting new material from Cliff and not cover versions of (good) old songs. Sure, being a 26 year old Cliff fan and having seen him quite a few times on stage, I've been expecting a more up-tempo, rockin' album (one that Cliff hasn't made for a long time now, though rock 'n' roll was and is his specialty, and I'm sure he feels best when singing r'n'r songs). Sure, Alan Tarney seems to have lost somehow his magic touch with his new songs. BUT, THE TRUTH REMAINS THAT "WANTED" IS CLIFF'S MOST RELAXING AND UNWINDING ALBUM EVER, A TRULY LOUNGE ALBUM, KEEPING UP WITH THE LATEST LOUNGING FASHION IN MUSIC WORLDWIDE! I've been playing the album on my car CD every morning going to work and every evening just before sunset and it fits perfectly at that time! Being Greek, I can't imagine a better spot to listen to Cliff's album than a beach on a greek isle as the sun sets in! "Cafe del Mar" is dead, long live "Wanted"!

Cliff opens with his new single Some where over the rain bow/A Wonderful world in a reggae style, a Christmas hit. This CD album is NOT just covers they sound NEW fresh different.
If you have seen Cliff's TV show "The Hits I Missed" Then you have heard the album "WANTED" This is a CD you have too listen to several times to get into it and it will be worth it. What's Love Got To Do With It should have been a Cliff song which got away, here it is for kids to dance to and will if DJ's play it.
A new song by Tarney and soon to be single in 2002 Let Me Be The One this is a song which will go down well in concert. A lovely song which I did not care for till after hearing a few times, is a lovely haunting song to end the night in someones arms.
"ALL SHOOK UP" is not 50s elvis this is 2001 Cliff with an Alan Tarney beat, an all NEW song which I like the best. If you don't MOVE IT to this then you have no soul no life in you. This song put a spell on me. It's not ment to sound the same as the originals it is NEW FRESH!
Ok this is not "I'm Nearly Famous" Cliff more "Sincerely" Cliff. Light pop to relax too and play in the car. Moon River, When You Walk In The Room, the Tarney/Black This Love You Will Never Forget. This CD you will never forget also, it will be played again & again. Then when you hear the originals you may find that you now prefer Cliff's and the kids will think that they are his anyway.
THE LADYS WILL LOVE THIS CLIFF FOR XMAS.
You need to have a soul to love this CD which has gone GOLD. And Cliff fans have SOUL!

After his previous album Real As I Wanna Be was largely overlooked by the music-buying public, Cliff seems to have come up with a formula to get back into the higher end of the charts by re-teaming with Alan Tarney who produced his two most successful albums, Always Guaranteed (1987) and Stronger (1989), to record a bunch of already well-known hits.
This formula generally works well and is likely to appeal to a great many people. It will also likely give him another platinum disc.
Standout tracks on this album are a medley of Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful world which is presented with an interesting semi-reggae flavour, Tina Turner's What's Love Got To Do With It, a new song called Let Me Be The One, a disco-flavoured All Shook Up, James Taylor's You've Got A Friend given a pop/R&B treatment and a bouncy cover of The Searchers' When You Walk In The Room.
While some have complained about the programmed drum-beats and synth machines, this album is pure pop and has never pretended to be anything else. If modern pop music doesn't appeal to you then you may not enjoy this album, but if it does then I can't see anyone going wrong with Wanted.

I think his year off certainly paid dividends - this CD is great - good rocking songs done in his own old style which I think is superior to any he has tried in the past few years. The ballads are smooth & well done. Hope he continues on in this tradition!

I was not expecting too much from this Album. I like Cliff alot and over the years have heard the very good and not so good from this always class act. This is VERY GOOD indeed. Yes I agree with some of the other reviews about 'Love me Tender' but apart from that the other songs are a joy to listen to. Many of the renditions make you think you are listening to a 'new' song. He has really re-written the way some of the songs are sung and put the trade mark 'Cliff' on them. I loved the rendition of Over the Rainbow/Wonderful World, incredibly well blended together, beautifully sung. My absolute favourite on the Album has to be 'Let me be the one' This has hit single written all over. PLEASE CLIFF if you read this review release this as a single and I reckon you will have another smash hit on your (very nice photo of) hands.

This is a first-class pop album. The songs are good, the production is slick, the treatments are clever and Cliff is in top form. This time, there's no submerging of his voice within an overproduced mix. Instead, he sits clearly on top of the backing track. And with his voice and singing smarts, that's precisely where he should be.
Some folks may take issue with the prevalence of covers. But really, that's a bit of a red herring. The versions here are not copies of the originals. Indeed, some of them (such as Like Strangers, All Shook Up and You've Got A Friend) are vastly removed from the versions you've heard before.
The lead-off track, a light reggae blending of Somewhere Over The Rainbow & What A Wonderful World, is a stunner. It'll be a real contender for the Christmas #1. But there are lots of other gems. Just to mention a few, there's the decidedly non-folky You've Got A Friend, a drivingly infectious When You Walk In The Room and a cleverly catchy new Alan Tarney composition called This Love You Will Never Forget.
While it's true that the instrumentation tends to have a canned, synthetic feel, it doesn't really detract from the overall quality of the piece. Do your ears a favour and listen to this album. Better still, buy it!
