This review is from: Pop Idol - the Big Band Album (Audio CD)
I, like you, have just read all the reviews of this album. Virtually every track has been condemned and also every track has been selected as "the best" on the album.. It shows that we all have VERY different opinions, I guess. I am a lover of big-band music, and quite honestly this album is AWESOME! These kids are are 18 going on 50.. You would have to be hyper-critical to say that any track is poor. I never watched the series, so I speak as I find. Gareth's rendition of Mack the Knife, And Rosie's Cheek to Cheek, for me, are the best 2 tracks.. but hey, ALL the tracks are great. If I had to make any criticism at all then it would be the total playing time is only 40 something minutes.. Come on producers!! We expect 80 mins these days!!
