Red Book, the new album from Charlene and company features 12 new tracks including "Can't Resist", "Cry", "Bad Weather", "Get Down Tonight", "Nevermind" and more.
It's hard to see Texas as a band nowadays. In the same way that Simply Red is Mick Hucknall, Texas have become the Sharleen Spiteri show. There's very little which is distinctive about this album other than her voice, which carries the show along quite nicely, thank you.
Red Book clearly aims to appeal to the Adult Orientated Pop market. Sharing producers with Gwen Stefani and Girls Aloud helps to achieve a suitably slick backdrop to Sharleen's musings on love's fickle ways.
Stand out tracks? "Sleep", a duet with The Blue Nile's Paul Buchanan, would move any but the most hard hearted. But to be honest, this isn't an album of stand out moments it's more something to wallow in; the aural equivalent of a long soak in a hot tub! --Trevor Lord

Finally, Texas have returned with an album that easily matches the best tracks of White On Blonde and The Hush.
Instant favourites are the gut-wrenchingly beautiful 'What About Us' and future single 'Can't Resist'.
But there are more gems that lie await, for this is easily Texas' most co-hesive album to date.
'Cry' , ' Sleep (Feat. Paul Buchanan)' and 'Bad Whether' could all easily make hit single material.
Texas are well and truely back on form and if this album doesn't take them to the next level of super stardom, nothing will.
Hopefully,once 'sleep' is released with Peter Kay led video,
sales will improve because as an album this is pure class.
Every song is perfectly executed.
I normally listen to more indie guitar type music,but the quality here cannot be denied.
It will be a damn shame if this album goes unnoticed by majority of record buying public.
As for that song 'sleep' a more emotionally uplifting song I haven't heard in a long,long time with Mr.Buchanan's vocals lifting it into classic status.
Sharleen's voice is as smooth as ever, the compositions go right into the ear and they're pretty sexy!
Their best effort to date! Wonderful!
This is the best Texas album since 1997's White On Blonde. While 2003's Careful What You Wish For had some good tracks on it, it wasn't the best. But with this album, Texas come back with some beautiful songs like What About Us. I can listen to the whole album without skipping because every track is brilliant.
I cannot understand the reviewer who hated this album but I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinion.I too loved Ricks Road and Southside and I think this is better than those 2 albums in fact I think its the best thing they've ever done.Do yourselves and buy this album its in 5 star heaven
It's one of those CD's that make you want to turn it up to get the full wall of sound experience, as well as the detail of sound they manage to get in.
Supports repeated listenings, perfect pop music - it's not deep, but it sticks in the head and it's absolutely satisfying....
the new album is wonderful, well produced and with fantastic songs. i never heard "runaway" when it was released but bought the album off the back of "cant resist" which is my favourite texas song to date and should have been such a huge hit!!!
if you like the first two singles and "white on blonde" and "the hush" this is a must....if you dont like it ill give you your money back...well maybe not that far but i am confident that youll love it
so to the songs it opens with a semi instrumental which reminds me a bit of erasure? straight into the wonderful "runaway" and then "cant resist" so to the newies!!!
"what about is" is brilliant and deserves to be a single...think classic kate bush meets all saints!
"sleep" the next single is a duet with somebody i dont know who but it gets in your head and stays their...probably the first song youll end up singing from the album!
"nevermind" is haunting and uplifting at the same time ."bad weather" is a strong catchy track>?
even the others cant be classed as fillers!!
in short this is shar doing what she does best...not too rock...no raps...just good songs....brilliant voice and fantastic production!!!!
I find it to be one of Texas' most intimate and best executed albums.I must admit I didn't inmediately like it on the first listening, apart from the songs to which I have listened to before, such as "Can't resist" or "What about us", and almost thought it was a bit too soft or boring... but a few listenings after, I found myself discovering the little gems this album was made of.
I can understand some people that have liked the band from day one, (I consider myself to be a fan from the very beginning myself), might think this doesn't relate completely to the first albums(which I completely loved), but in my opinion the band has simply evolved in time, just like anybody else does. (i.e.- Sharleen doesn't seem to deliver as much her "strong beautiful voice" anymore, but I wouldn't say it's "breathy nothingness" either...it's evolution in my opinion. Though everybody is entitled to their opinion, that's for sure.
Summing up, give this album a good listening, don't give up on the first try! It's a 10 out of 10!

Texas albums are always worth listening to, especially for Sharleen's smooth, soulful vocals which burst forth as a counterpoint to the guitar-based soft rock music underneath. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Ian
I bought this album to replace one I left behind in the divorce!
I've seen Texas so many times and feel as though they're old friends. The music, as ever, is wonderful.
