Only One Man - but what a man!!
on 11 November 2013
It is unusual to get a new CD from Russell Watson on which the majority of the songs are unfamiliar to most listeners. However, all of the tracks grew on me really quickly and soon became embedded in my mind. From the oh so poignant 'Seventeen' and 'Too Much For One Heart' to the stirring title track 'I Am Only One Man' it's all here - the power, passion, emotion and tenderness which Russell always gives - only much, much more so. He has put so much heart into this record, his voice is even more amazing than usual and it is exciting and fresh and very touching.
Great songs from Messrs Schonberg and Boublil and good orchestrations and production combine to give a very full, rounded sound to the whole CD.
I love it all, in my opinion (as a long time fan) it is his best work to date.
The only thing missing is a 'Warning - Highly Addictive' label!
