You Raise Me Up ~ John Barrowman
You Raise Me Up ~ John Barrowman

Barrowman has said he had full artistic control over this album, and it shows. This album is so much better than the previous few ones. It's probably the best one he's done since Swings Cole Porter, and certainly the best of his 'pop' albums. Previously , no matter how good he is as a live performer the albums always seemed a little bland, lacking his stage energy. This one is I can play on repeat. The vocals, music arrangement, orchestration, even the choir, are superb. Apparently Barrowman is no longer with a record label, and this album was funded via crowdfunding by his fans. More artists should do that if it produces albums of this quality!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected, 31 Oct 2012
This is a review of the audio book . I bought this as a fan of Torchwood, but, as I wasn't keen on Miracle Day, and knowing that this is set after that, I was a bit apprehensive. However I was pleasantly surprised, It was much better than I expected. The characterization of the Torchwood cast was spot on, and I really loved the fact that Jack is back to his flirty self, action hero, rather than the depressed sidelined character he was in Miracle Day. The plot (and chapters) move quickly, and frequently back and forth between different times and events (from present day, to years ago, to a few weeks ago), which can be a bit confusing at first but was OK once I got used to it… Read more
Animals At Work With John Barrowman [DVD] [2010]
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
This is great for animal lovers. It's entertaining and educational, with a mixture of animals involved in very serious work, to animals that just have fun jobs. I like Barrowman as the presenter as well (mostly he just narrates, though some of the funniest bits are when he interacts with animals as well).
