Who could ask for anything more?

All nominations for Album of 2005 end here!
Mcalmont wraps his golden tones around some of the finest songs ever written, and the combination is both magical and irresistable. From the opening seconds, you just know you are in for a rare treat...the brush of a cymbal, the gentle thrum of the bass, the warm keyboards, and then....that voice! Like getting a hug from an angel...
If you know your musical heritage and you are aware of Mcalmonts unique vocal stylings, you will have a pretty fair idea of how this album is going to sound. But nothing can prepare you for the sheer beauty of this collection...sensual, honest, better than bliss.
I can only wish that "Set One" is a taster for more! Ella recorded a series of classic songbooks, and we need Mcalmont to carry the torch...and hopefully burn and destroy the memory of Rod Stewarts risible attempts.
And Mcalmont, if your are reading..."He was too good to me" by Rodgers and Hart...
I can dream, can't I?
BUY THIS ALBUM!
