"Brian who?" was my first thought, since I was drawn by Delta Goodrem's name on the credits more than anything else. Then it struck me... "Oh! Westlife! Right, got it now. Wasn't Ronan Keating part of that lot once too?" Seems this band are growing a reputation of breeding solo artists... OK, so, let's hear what Brioan sounds like on his own...

As "Walking Disaster" played along, full of 'wooooo-ooo-ooo's, I could not help but feel I was listening to a mediocre remix of "Guilty" by The Rasmus... not exactly a flattering one either. This track certainly has an appropriate title.

However, the duet with Delta Goodrem, "Almost Here" saved the day, as this was about the only track that had any real merit... does it strike you as a 'coincidence' that it's the only duet, and has a world-class female vocal artist taking the lead? Not to me... Delta saved this album from being a total flop IMHO.

The only really interesting insight on this album is the track "Sorry Love Daddy", which appears to be a very public apology to his children for the separation from ex-AtomicKitten, Kerry Katona. A bit of an OTT thing to put on an album, but at least it fills one slot on the CD, saving us from another possible disaster-in-training song.

Overall, Brian seems to have refused to fully outgrow his Westlife days... which is, contrary to his expectations, working against him. After all, he left Westlife, why drag out the death-throws by going solo in the same vein? Sorry Brian, but the face-fungus doesn't hide your lack of solo talent. You need to be 'another voice in the choir' to really get some musical coverage worth listening to.
