I am probably older than Shayne Ward's usual listener but by accident I heard him on the Alan Titchmarsh Show covering Nickelbacks Gotta be Someone. Now I love Nickelback, my absolut favourite and usually hate covers but Shayne Ward sang the heck out of that song so on that basis I thought I would give this album a shot. I bought it wearily thinking that the music may be a bit too - teenie bopper/young/electronic - for me. This was absolutely not the case. I put in on while driving to work with my husband and was spoiled with the treat of 9 great songs, with a pleasing vartiey of tempos and mood to each song. I cann't believe they also managed to perform one of my favourite songs, Nobody Knows without such a sad feel that sometimes I cannot even listen to it without feeling completely blue. They managed this by backing it up with a regie beat. Waiting in the Wings and Human really spoke to me and being a fan of the original Two Princes I really enjoyed his version, taking me back to my carefree student days, flirting in the student union bar. Crash was the only song that I didn't outright love but I have no doubt is will probably grow on me. The title track Obession has a catchy melodie which did stick in my mind throughout the day. I would say that this is a fun, mature, sexy and (pass the bucket I know) it was almost like listening to your best friend singing to you, giving you support and making you laugh.
The only critism I have is that it is too short. The album was about two songs short for my journey to work, I will just have to treat myself to his other albums. And also Amazon is now constantly recomending other X-Factor winner's albums and that really annoys me, I hadn't realise that he was discovered on X-Factor.
