4.0 out of 5 stars What a welcome change !!!, 19 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Go Your Own Way [Double CD] (Audio CD)
Wow ! Gareth is certainly growing up with his new album. Packaged as 2 CDs for day and night. Our Gareth has certainly been inspired by Justin Timberlake even to the point of using falsetto especially on the fantastic "Groove with me". The day CD has a very funk/rnb feel to it. "Absolutely" is reminiscent of George Michael during his "Older" days. "Enough of Me" has a great rock guitar backing.The title track is a little more laid back and soulful.
Overall the "day" cd is far superior to the "night" cd - which has a more poppy sound and Gareth returns to his trademark ballads with piano intro and soaring choruses. However that said there are some more interesting moments - "skeletons" is very Backstreet Boys, "Foolish" has a 60's feel, and and the end track sounds like a Jason Donovan song ! The reason for the 2 CD's is a bit strange. The only reason I could see that the 2nd CD was "night" was beacuase it contains a few ballads but why would you want to listen to "spirit in the sky" on a night -they should have definitely swapped the tracks over as the 1st CD is far sexier and funky. At least you can now coose which Gareth you prefer - the old "pop" Gareth, or the new "funk" Gareth.....
Gareth is certainly sounding better and this album should see him get some credability from the more adult market since he also co-wrote most of the songs on it. Definitely one to buy - even if you're not a huge fan.
