Heroes songs Product Information
Heroes album for sale by Michael Ball was released Mar 22, 2011 on the Universal Music label. Best-known for his starring roles in Andrew Lloyd Webber productions The Phantom of the Opera, Aspects of Love, and The Woman in White, and more recently his Olivier Award-winning turn as Hairspray's Edna Turnblad, Michael Ball has recently started to move away from the musical theater-based material that defined his early recording career. Following the contemporary MOR of 2006's One Voice and the lounge-pop of Back to Bacharach, his fourteenth studio album, Heroes, is a collection of romantic classics originally performed by some of the musical icons he grew up listening to. The array of song choices may have changed, but his signature sound remains the same, as its 15 tracks stick to the same easy listening orchestral arrangements of their predecessors, with the tempo never straying beyond walking pace, besides an enjoyable duet with '70s crooner Tony Christie on his The Protectors' theme tune, "Avenues and Alleyways." A rare spark of invention occurs on his rendition of Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind," which cleverly opens with a few bars from George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," but elsewhere, Heroes is very much faithful to the originals, and includes covers of songs from the '50s (Nat King Cole's "When I Fall in Love," Johnny Mathis' "Misty"), the '60s (Tom Jones' "I'll Never Fall In Love Again," Long John Baldry's "Let the Heartaches Begin"), and and the '70s (Barry Manilow's "Weekend in New England," Neil Diamond's "Play Me"). ...See Full Description
