5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant, 10 Dec. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Music Music Music (Audio CD)
The latest offering from John Barrowman is fantastic - just the right mix of different music genres to create a hugely pleasurable listening experience. As with his last CD, there are a total of thirteen tracks, and each one is equally enjoyable to listen to.

Some of the top choices, though, would have to be his new single, "What About Us". This song was penned by Gary Barlow and offered to John Barrowman to record when the artist it was intended for apparently declined. It was originally believed that Barlow had written it specifically for John, but later reports have since corrected that unfortunate misconception. Nevertheless, it's a true pleasure to listen to him sing an original song.
Other particularly noteworthy songs are "Right Here Waiting For You", "From A Distance", "Uptown Girls" and the duet version of "I Know Him So Well". The latter song is also on the CD as a solo version, and is great to listen to, but it can't match the beautiful vocal harmonies that Barrowman produces alongside the talented Daniel Boys. It is the first time this song has been sung by a male duet, and they do the job superbly.

The track "From A Distance" is by far my favourite. I admit to being biased, because I'm more partial to ballads, but John sings this track magnificently.

On the whole, the CD is well worth every cent. John Barrowman has never failed to please with his musical offerings but, in my humble opinion, this is certainly his best compilation to date.
