5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless, 4 Nov 2005
This review is from: Older (Audio CD)
Reading the reviews posted here, one word really rang true about this album, that word is 'timeless'. Nothing could describe this album in it's entirety better. I first listened to this album in 1996 when it came out, i was only 8 at the time. I must have stopped listening to it in 1998, or thereabouts, and I found my old CD about two weeks ago. This album is so powerful, and the lyrics are written in such a way as it nearly made me break down and cry, being a current great fan of the likes of Muse and Korn, finding this album was a great relief.
Now without getting too emotional I could only say that this is as close to a masterpiece as they get, no album I have ever listened to before has had an impact on me as much as Older.
Coming back to the word 'Timeless', this album has that long lasting hold on you, as I proved, listening to it with even greater fondness nearly ten years later. I practically grew up with this album and I couldn't say there would be a better album to grow up to, and without sounding like I endorse Mr. Michael himself, buy this album. You will not regret it. In fact, now I know this is completely opinion based but in the light of the discussion I have to say Jesus to a Child, and You Have Been Loved are the best songs I have ever heard, lyrically they are perfect. Period. No one could have written or performed them better, but the same goes without a doubt, to the rest of the album.
This is undoubtbly the best album of the nineties. And I would not doubt the century, I may be a very old man before I hear anything quite rivalling this. Thank you.
