Michael Bolton has proved song after song that he is the master of his own destiny. In 1995 we saw ther elease of a Greatest Hits collection, plus 5 new tracks that marked the beginning of a new era for Bolton. All That Matters is that new era. Strong Lyrics, Powerful vocal performances matched by up to date sounds. The first single (Best Of Love), co-written with Babyface is a lush R'n'B ballad that sees Bolton's vocals as we've never heard them. There is a feel good nature to this album, from the uptempo tracks 'Show Her The Way' 'Let's Make A Long Story Longer' 'Safe Place From The Storm' to the powerful ballads 'Best Of Love' 'Heart Can Only Be So Strong' Can't Get Close Enough To You' 'When There Are No Words'. Although this album failed to get the commercial success it deserved, probably due to the lack of promotional activity, 'All That Matters' is one of Michael Bolton's finest pieces of work, and I'd have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone wishing to listen to 'The Voice'
Didn't have this cd in my collection until i spotted it on Amazon and ordered it. Certainly not disappointed its brilliant just when you think Michael Bolton cannot deliver anymore power in his music, wow your in for a surprise with his soulful voice many beautiful Ballards.
