Format: Audio CD
Peter performs "Traditional" very well, but it is a poor lyric by any standard. He sings of wanting his love to be traditional..."the old school traditional". What on earth does that mean? To make matters worse we are given this gibberish again as a bonus track at the end.

"Happy Together" is good apart from the orchestra trying its best to drown out the vocal - the balance is wrong. "That's Life" and "Never Too Far Away From A Song" are similarly over orchestrated - and I don't much care for the orchestra both in terms of overall sound and style.

"This Guy's In Love With You" is quite dreadful. The tempo is wrong, the arrangement is tuneless and it is, at best, a dirge.

"Until You Come Back To Me" is a lovely track and more attractive to those of us who greatly admired Peter's debut album "New Vintage". I also liked "On The Beach", "September Song"; and "Edge of Blue" - admittedly not the most memorable selection of songs, but Peter's voice can be heard in sympathetic settings. At least he gets the chance to show his vocal abilities in these numbers.

This CD is a rag bag of styles and moods and it just doesn't gel. There has been a marked change in direction since "New Vintage" and not for the better. It is clear that this album is attempting to broaden Peter's appeal by trying to be more cutting edge. This is not an unworthy aim, but a questionable choice of material and unimpressive orchestrations have left me with a feeling of disappointment. I do hope Peter's next album will be worthy of his talent; we know he has it in him!

After "New Vintage" which was absolutely superb,"Traditional" is now the usual run in the mill stuff presumably, aimed at the younger generation. Being a member of the old brigade (getting on for 80) I thought this young man was at last catering for those of us who remember what good music used to be. Just think of Matt Monro,Frank Sinatra,Tony Bennett,Vic Damone,Etc.Etc. Peter Grant gave us hope that The Good Times were coming back.Where were the renderings of tunes like Joanna-Walk Away and all the other tracks as on New Vintage.There are countless hundreds of standards which he could have used. May I suggest that his next album includes tunes that are remembered and loved by us oldies.We may be old but we still appreciate good music and not this hard to understand stuff of today, which I can never visualise being remembered in 40 or 50 years time. Peter Grant is a very talented young man and a pleasure to listen to but he must not forget that even the elderly still buy C.D's

When I bought his first album I didn't know who he was and never have heard of him. It was a wonderful surprise!!! What a voice and a great singer he is! Still has to grow but the essencial is there. The choice of the songs was perfect. Now I was expecting something equal or better. His voice is still there and I think it'll improved as the years go by, but the choice of the songs wasn't the best one, apart from the swing/jazzy This Guy is Love", lovely way to sing it, all the rest is so so. We can't hear his powerful voice in all the cd. I think all his fans were expecting something in the line of Buble, Cincotti, Connick JR and so on, the standards or powerfull songs like Joana.Let's hope next time we can find Grant like we was in the first one - a wonderful surprise for the those who don't know him! I'm still a fan...

An excellant new singer who is young, british, and extremly talented.I found the album enchanting. A mixture of big band with a slight touch of jazz and some intersting warm ballads. His previous album covered a few Matt Munroe songs and I enjoyed that tremendously,a good first album. I feel this is a step forwards covering what he himself likes and that comes over on this his second album. TRADITIONAL, the title track is wonderful but then so is THAT'S LIFE{not the Sinatra song} YOU'RE WORTH IT,of course HAPPY TOGETHER and especially YOU DON'T KNOW ( HOW GLAD I AM) .There is going to be a lot more to come I hope and if you like an easy listening album that is right up to date then you won't be dissapointed.

Peter Grant is a talented young man and I have enjoyed his new album. However, I still think there is something missing from this new offering. Perhaps a better choice of songs next time?

Good but not as good as Peter's wonderful first album, New Vintage. Having said that, there are some very good versions of older and more modern songs, and I think the title track is a new song - and a good song very well performed and delivered.

What a talent this guy has. His approach is natural and his voice has the timbre of past classic singers. Found him by accident but will follow his career closely. Am now most definitely a fan. It's wrong to make comparisons but he is definitely on par with Matt Monroe, Harry Connick and Michael Buble. British talent at its best.

I bought this CD after listening to Peter Grant's mesmerisingly beautiful voice on his CD New Vintage. This CD doesn't do him credit but his voice is still sensational and I it was worth buying. He's the best singer I've heard in years.
