PHIL AT HIS BEST!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Going Back (Audio CD)
Going Back is clearly straight from the heart. Phil Collins sounds better than ever, singing the songs he clearly loves and respects. In no way is this a pointless Motown re-hash or just a banal, bland covers album. It is so much more. Phil worked very hard to get that Motown sound while still making each song very much his own. Phil's emotions are unmistakenly close to the surface and can be heard in every song - in fact, I would say I haven't heard him sing with this much feeling since Face Value and Hello, I Must Be Going.
The DVD is also an absolute gem! It appeals to fans and non-fans alike. It reveals not only the obvious joys they had making this album, but also the painstaking attention to detail Phil, and the excellent people he surrounded himself with, went through to get that authentic Motown sound.
This is not just an album for Phil Collins and Motown fans - it has a wide appeal and would be an excellent addition to any music collection.
