#1 HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERon 1 July 2013
Former Boyzone lead singer continued his successful career with his album, from which came four UK hits that also charted in a number of other countries. The most successful of these was a cover of If tomorrow never comes, a classic Garth Brooks song. I think its success may be partly due to Garth's profile not being as high outside America as within, but while I'll always prefer the original, I cannot deny that Ronan's version is excellent and that he deserved the success that he had with this ong.

There is one other cover version here, and that is We've got tonight, originally written and recorded by Bob Seger in the seventies. Nevertheless, Ronan's version is clearly inspired by the 1983 American country and pop hit duet version by Kenny Rogers and Sheena Easton. That version was also a UK pop hit, just missing the top 10, but Ronan's version did better by just making the top 10. Lulu replaced Sheena for the female part, though she is only credited in the small print in the booklet.

The remainder of the album contains a nice selection of original songs including two more hits, these being I love it when you do and The long goodbye.
