5.0 out of 5 stars He's bold, he better and he's BACK!, 27 May 2002
This review is from: Destination (Audio CD)
After a noticeable long absense from the pop scene, Ronan Keating returns with Destination, a happy, summery album with sounds that won't stay out of your head and lyrics that make you smile!
With tracks mainly writen by Gregg Alexander, this album proves that Ronan Keating is back and has certainly reached his destination, a good place to be!
There are ballads of course, the now well known IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES may be a tear jerker but it certainly doesn't bring you down, nor does the beautiful LONG GOODBYE, penned by Ronan and Paul Brady. Not typical of the rest of the rest of the album, but these tracks compliment it perfectly.
The album bursts into life with I LOVE IT WHEN WE DO and not only will you find it hard to keep still while listening to this track, you will also be very tempted to hum the chorus for several hours after listening. There are many catchy and contagious tracks like that on this album with clever tongue in cheek lyrics, but there is just the right touch of depth in the ballads and a few surprises as Ronan proves he has the vocal prowess to tackle a new dimension in his music. This is particularly obvious on tracks like MY ONE THING THAT'S REAL and TIME FOR LOVE. Both prove that Ronan is now miles away from the early Boyzone days of cheesy pop. The only track on the album that is reminiscent of those days, in my opinion, is AS MUCH AS I CAN GIVE YOU GIRL, but Ronan's voice has grown up. It has a new warmth and strength and is stretched to it's limits here.
If you liked Brand New Radicals, you'll like this. If you're a sucker for a sloppy ballad or even something with a bit more depth, you'll find it all here! A clever combination of foot tappers and swayers, a must for the car. It will make that journey to work something to look forward to.
Well done Ronan, welcome back!
