This review is from: Both Sides Now (Audio CD)
Michaels' latest album is for me, a fan who has all his other solo albums, the best by far to date. This CD is perfect for a cosy night in; full of beautifully crafted songs all delivered with class and clarity accompanied with style by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
`Both Sides Now' features a delightful musical arrangement including beautiful saxophone solos by Snake Davis.
`Perfect Song', a new song written by Lord Lloyd Webber and Leslie Bricusse will stay with you after the first listen; such a catchy but lovely song `perfectly' delivered!
`Suddenly', the new song from the Les Miserables Movie is another heartbreakingly beautiful song.
Michael delivers the Dolly Parton classic, `I Will Always Love You' in its original style; staying away from the big belty Whitney Houston version preferring to keep it pared right back which is perfect and again delivered beautifully.
For those of you wanting something a bit more upbeat there are the Leona Lewis classic hit `Run' and another new song given to Michael by Tim Rice from the new musical From Here To Eternity called `Fight the Fight' another great and very catchy tune.
Most albums have the odd song which is skipped on the playlist, not this one; there isn't a bad song on here.
The album closes with a rendition of Love Changes Everything which has been given a new twist and features the operatic vocals of Il Divo this is the perfect album - just buy it!!!
