I like the songs more now, wasn't too keen on the first listen. I will most probably buy the album, yes.  :D
Just the way you are
We'll be standing soul to soul
My love's never far
I will hear you call
You'll never be inconsolable

I've decided I quite like the album now. Some great tracks some not so great. I love Us Against The World, Something Right, Pictures In My Head & When I'm With You (which I think really sounds like it could have been on the new Shayne Ward album), plus Jorgen has done a great job with You Must Have Had A Broken Heart.

Here's my review of the Cheiron songs ;)

Best Melody: "Us against the world"
Best Lyrics: "Something right"
Best Production: "The Easy Way"
Best background vocals: "You must have had a broken heart"
Most fabulous keychange: "You must have had a broken heart"

The Cheiron songs are all really worth listening. Rami, Savan and Arnthor have written some pretty different songs.
I am especially pleased Jörgen has an old-style Westlife-mid-tempo ballad on it. Since the "Greatest hits" they haven't worked with him anymore. This could have also been a song for an Idol-winner, it has this anthem-feeling to it.

"Us against the world" is a very good choice for the second single, though I'd prefer "Something right" as it's been a while since Westlife had a faster song released as an single.

"Pictures in my head" is also the perfect radio song, you have the melody in your head instantly.

Right now "Something right" is my favourite, it's so uplifting and catchy, closely followed by "You must have had a broken heart".

Other highlights from the album: "Catch my breath" and "I'm already there".
I am a bit disappointed by the other Steve Mac songs.

Definitely recommend it, maybe their best album in their career!
And I liked it..

I bought this album yesterday.

Something Right is my favourite song on it too.

The Cheiron songs are definitely the best on the album

I'm appalled that they covered Have You Ever, I was so sick of hearing that song back when Brandy sang it (I think it was Brandy) and now hearing Westlife sing it - ugh.

I would like Westlife to be brave enough to release an album with only originals.

I don't think this is going to be my favourite of their albums. Nothing can beat Coast to Coast - with My Love and I Lay My Love On You.

I still don't understand why they still do what Simon Cowell tells them to do.

He wanted them to record "Have you ever" because he thought it was a good song to show their harmonies.  :-X

Just annoying. I am sure Maratone had many more good songs for that album and covering "Home" and "Have you ever" is really pretty useless.

And I liked it..

so ridiculous!
we know they do great harmonies - they have already released a bunch of albums, it's not like they're auditioning for Idol! Simon Cowell must have such control over them, we were probably lucky they sang any originals at all!

I find it funny how in interviews they're talking about being sick of doing cover songs and being happy about finally having an album full of brandnew original Westlife tracks, when in fact there's still 17% cover versions on it. *lol*

It's just too funny really. "Brandnew original Westlife tracks" translated: Old songs by Westlife! but it's okay because they are harmonising.

I have to admit though that I love their Total Eclipse of the Heart. I would love them to cover Alone though - take note Simon Cowell. haha
