Decent, but could've been better...,
This review is from: Mirage (Audio CD)
Pretty much the same comments as the previous reviews. It has a very 'pop' feel about it, indeed some of the songs do feel very cheesy and overdone, as if they were for some 7 year old who was new to the genre.
But there were some really nice songs too that I thought made up for it somewhat. 'Not giving up on love' with Sophie Ellis Baxtor was on the 1st listen didn't seem particularly good, but then it just clicked. Never heard her voice like that before, fantastic song even if it was 'too poppy'.
'Take me where I wanna go', worked out as a nice and simple tune. 'Take a moment' was decent too. 'Virtual friend' was probably my favourite after the sophie ellis one.
Having said all that, the rest of the songs were very ordinary. I have to admit, I was really looking forward to this one. Can't help but feel a little disappointed, 'Imagine' and '76' were both superior to this one. Still a good buy though considering that there isn't a great deal of good music out there these days.
