OK but not classic Midge,
This review is from: 10 (Audio CD)
An album of gentle interpretations of songs that mean a lot to Midge, and after eight years wait for a new studio album there was a lot of expectation.
Sadly a couple of the songs are poor, most disappointing are his versions of Goodbye to Love and Alfie.
Others are a pleasant listening experience but not classics.
Highlights for me are Man of the World, Day after Day, Song for While I'm Away and Nevermore - all classic Midge.
This album needed some more upbeat moments to give it a much needed injection of energy and vigour to make it better than average. Sadly average is what it is overall, inspite of a few gems.
