5.0 out of 5 stars Only One Man - but what a man!!
It is unusual to get a new CD from Russell Watson on which the majority of the songs are unfamiliar to most listeners. However, all of the tracks grew on me really quickly and soon became embedded in my mind. From the oh so poignant 'Seventeen' and 'Too Much For One Heart' to the stirring title track 'I Am Only One Man' it's all here - the power, passion, emotion and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea
I read previous reviews and thought I would order the CD to make up my own mind. I am a great supporter of Russell and have all his CD's and have been to see him in person a few times. My first impression upon playing the CD right through was that it did not show off his superbly powerful voice - it was pleasant enough to listen to, but so are many other artists, and I...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea, 21 Nov 2013

This review is from: Only One Man (Audio CD)
I read previous reviews and thought I would order the CD to make up my own mind. I am a great supporter of Russell and have all his CD's and have been to see him in person a few times. My first impression upon playing the CD right through was that it did not show off his superbly powerful voice - it was pleasant enough to listen to, but so are many other artists, and I didn't think it made him stand out from the crowd. Russell has a beautiful voice and as yet I don't think this CD does it justice. If I play it often enough I may change my mind once I get used to it but on the whole a bit disappointing

This review is from: Only One Man (Audio CD)
It is unusual to get a new CD from Russell Watson on which the majority of the songs are unfamiliar to most listeners. However, all of the tracks grew on me really quickly and soon became embedded in my mind. From the oh so poignant 'Seventeen' and 'Too Much For One Heart' to the stirring title track 'I Am Only One Man' it's all here - the power, passion, emotion and tenderness which Russell always gives - only much, much more so. He has put so much heart into this record, his voice is even more amazing than usual and it is exciting and fresh and very touching.
Great songs from Messrs Schonberg and Boublil and good orchestrations and production combine to give a very full, rounded sound to the whole CD.
.
I love it all, in my opinion (as a long time fan) it is his best work to date.

The only thing missing is a 'Warning - Highly Addictive' label!

Bravo Russell

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 26 Nov 2013

Like many others have been a great supporter of Russell Watson but this new album did nothing for me. His voice did not sound like him at all and none of the songs brought out the tenor in him, I still maintain that his best album was his first The Voice where he brought to life every track. Sorry Russell not going to keep this one.

I've been disappointed often with some of Russell's work but not this time. A really interesting choice of songs on this cd and a beautiful blend from start to finish. I would love to see a DVD of this material. This is a big improvement, happy I had it shipped over ! I will spread the word !

As a great fan of Russell Watson this c.d. his is best. It makes a change to hear Russell singing new songs instead of the normal songs we are so use to and sometimes boring hearing the same thing over again. Hope Russell keeps going down this new avenue and we will get a few more c.d's like this. A GREAT BUY

5.0 out of 5 stars best ever, 14 Nov 2013
This review is from: Only One Man (Audio CD)
This CD is the most moving and emotional lof songs that Russel has recorded. It is refreshing to find a talented artist who can, unlike some others I can think of, turn his voice to opera, classical songs and ballads with what seems consummate ease. I defy anyone who has had children to be unable to identify with the emotions of `Too much for one heart`. This is my favourite track but I can happily listen to all the other 11, it is a permanent fixture in my car CD player.
