Fame Academy has introduced some fresh talent to the music scene, as the numerous other 'pop stars' competitions have.
The album is composed of mainly well known hits, and they are all performed well. Everybody who followed BBC's Fame Academy will enjoy this CD.
It includes a mix of old songs, and new, covered aptly by the Fame Academy students, who are not afraid to let their personalities give the songs a unique edge.
This album is impressive, and stands out from the other manufactured pop act CDs. It consists of some of the best songs performed on the television series. It also includes songs written by the contestants, such as Lemar's outstanding 'Lullaby'.
I feel this album was released prematurely, and the production has suffered from this. Great performances, such as Lemar and David's version of Stevie Wonder's "As" were not included on the album due to this.
Despite the rushed production, I still rate this recording
