This review is from: Michael Ball: This Time... It's Personal [DVD] (DVD)
Just like the album of the same name and bearing many of the songs from that collection of new country music, this concert performance grows on you. As usual, it showcases Mr. Ball's lively and engaging concert stage presence, although this time the songs are rendered in the more intimate atmosphere of the Cafe de Paris in London. The focus is on his new album of new songs like "You Bring the Best Out of Me", a new Ball composition called "Never Coming Back" together with cover versions of " The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", "If Tommorrow Never Comes", "Greatest Man I Never Knew" and even "No Matter What". It is Michael's singing versatility ( and wonderful vocal range) which allows him to sing ballads and pop songs, musical theatre hits, as well as rock and roll oldies and provides his audience with a very entertaining evening. The DVD gives you a close-up view of this small stage concert - and is infectious enough that you feel like clapping together with his audience in a cabaret atmosphere, as he sings one wonderful song after another!
