4.0 out of 5 stars Pluses and minuses, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Perhaps Love (Audio CD)
There are definite pluses and minuses with this, Jonathan and Charlotte's second album. It is clear that the production company have heeded the several criticisms levelled at the first album, that Jonathan's voice was swamped by an over-loud orchestra. They have also bowed to requests for solo songs from Jonathan, which means Charlotte also gets solos. However, for me, the choice of songs for the duets is rather strange. Already I'm skipping three of these as I find them dreary and unoriginal, a waste of both artists' incredible voices. The rest are fine (though still not as much to my taste as those on 'Together') and Christmas songs I only want to listen to at Christmas. This is very disappointing after the powerful and uplifting duets on 'Together', all of which I loved.

For me, what carries this album are Jonathan's three solo's and Charlotte's solo 'Wishing you were somehow here again', all of which are just stupendous. Hearing Jonathan do what Jonathan does best, without sounding like he's fighting a losing battle with the orchestra makes it an album worth buying - but it also makes me want an album just of Jonathan singing similar classics - unless the company can come up with good powerful duets the equal of those on the first album 'Together', which personally, I prefer.

I agree too. I am glad I bought the album, but it is a different class than the first.
