5.0 out of 5 stars lovely song, 10 Oct. 2012
This review is from: He's Still Around (MP3 Download)
lovely song, anyone who's ever lost someone will find the lyrics comforting! Great to know that part of it goes to charity (CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young)
Well done Tony!

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for kids, 16 May 2010
This review is from: The Tree of Seasons (Hardcover)
This is a really sweet, magical story.

It's the beginning of the summer holidays and one night the 3 kids Josh, Michael and Beth Lotts discover some strange lights and sounds from the nearby Merriville Woods. The next day they go to explore and they end up meeting Forrester, who is the protector of the trees. They are told about the secrets of the Tree Of Seasons, which is an ancient tree that has doors to the 4 kingdoms of spring, summer, autumn and winter. Each kingdom has a king or a queen. However the evil queen Gridelda wants to rule all 4 kingdoms. She would then not only be able to rule the magical world, but the outside world as well. The three kids get choosen to help the fight against the evil queen. They get involved in a real adventure and make lots of magical friends on their way.

I don't want to give too much of the story or the ending away, but it's written in a real sweet and uplifting way. A lovely story about the fight of good and evil and about living in harmonie with each other.

This book totally exceeded my expectations. It holds a lot of surprises. Every child between 4 - 12 will enjoy this story - guaranteed. And adults who like to drift away into a magical world will enjoy this book equally.

3.0 out of 5 stars Boyzone have changed, 9 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Brother (Audio CD)
REVIEW Song by Song:

* 1. Gave It All Away (5 stars)
Beautiful vocals and very poignant lyrics by Stephen Gately. His voice never fails to lift you up.

* 2. Love Is A Hurricane (2 stars)
Sounds a bit like a cheap version of Life is a rollercoaster.

* 3. Ruby (3 stars)
Interesting to hear Mikey Grahams vocals, but a shame that someone had to die before he was allowed to sing. A welcome change to Ronans voice though, but don't expect it be be as outstandingly good as Stephens vocals.

* 4. Too Late For Hallelujah (3 stars)
Sounds a bit like Greatest Day by Take That, but this song has really melancholic and bitter lyrics.

* 5. Separate Cars (2 stars)
A song about the breaking up of a relationship. Ronan Keating on lead vocals. Sadly he fails to hit the high notes.

* 6. One More Song (3 stars)
A song clearly dedicated to the late Stephen Gately. Sadly without any ups and downs. A bonus point for the lyrics.

* 7. Right Here Waiting (1 star)
A very dull song.

* 8. Nothing Without You (4 stars)
Quite a good rock ballad.

* 9. 'Til The Sun Goes Down (2 stars)
Another rock ballad, just not quite as good

* 10. Time (2 star)
Another very dull rock ballad.

* 11. Let Your Wall Fall Down (4 stars)
A gospel choir gives this song the edge.

* 12. Stronger (4 stars)
A very soft song. The second song on this album that features Gately and his warm and uplifting vocals. And he clearly out sings Keating, who opens the song.

Overall the album clearly lacks the amazing and uplifting vocals of Stephen Gately. Most of it sounds either like a Ronan Keating album or a Take That copycat album. I don't know why Ronan Keating goes on and on in interviews that there are no ballads on this album. Clearly Gave it all away, Ruby, Separate Cars, Right Here Waiting, Nothing Without You, 'Til the sun goes down, Stronger are ballads or rock ballads. Quite a lot of the songs sound a bit "samey". Would have loved them to mix a few pop songs into it. And I don't get it why it took Boyzone 2 years to finish this album and then they have only 2 songs with Stephen's vocals on it? Looks like they didn't put much effort into it while he was still around and then rushed to finish the product after he left.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing vocals - Stephen Gately will be missed, 5 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Gave It All Away (MP3 Download)
One of the last songs that Stephen Gately recorded. His voice is perfect once more. What a great voice, what a great talent, what a great man! He will be dearly missed by so many. Can't imagine Boyzone without him. He brought something so special to the band that can never be replaced. R.I.P. Stephen xx
