This album grows on you,
By A Customer
This review is from: Destination (Audio CD)
When I first heard it I was cautiously pleased, but, as I have listened to it more, I have found that, as with some of Ronan's previous recording's, it grows on you - and stays.
Apart from the obviously good 3rd track (If tomorrow never comes) track 13, (The Long Goodbye) which he wrote with Paul Brady is a much appreciated addition to the album - a very good song.
As well as these, track 12 (We've got tonight), with Lulu, is oustanding, as is the previous track, 11, (Joy and pain).
There are one or two other tracks where the lyrics made me cringe but... I find myself listening to it again and again so... 5 stars it gets.
I look forward to the next album and I hope to see him drawing from a wider variety of sources because, although most of the tracks on the album are written by Gregg Alexander, and the album has been advertised as such, the best tracks are not his compositions, which suggests that Ronan need not rely too heavily on him in the future.
