CD Reviews

My personal favourite Colin Hay record
Shaun Driscoll | Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada | 12/10/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Why this record wasn't a big success is yet another piece in the "Why isn't Colin Hay bigger than Sting?" mystery. Every song is strong, there's not a weak one in the bunch, no "filler" like most artists put on records. The lyrics are pithy, moving, smart and observant as only Colin Hay can write. "Waiting For My Real Life To Begin" was exactly where I was at when I bought this and remains for me the most meaningful. "Woman's Face" is a real man's view of female beauty. "Lost Generation" uses the title of the WW2 generation as irony for the lost "Gen Xers" who whine about being well off. "Oooh Oooh Oooo Baby" made my girlfriend cry because it was something that I had done and just made her think of me when I was away from her. That's a testament to the honest stories and genuine lyrics Colin Hay writes."
Forget Sting, Colin is the best singer/songwriter around

"This album is truly amazing. Waiting for my Real Life to Begin is a song to which everyone should listen. With MAW or by himself... Colin is ever moving with his amazing voice and often poignant lyrics."
The best ever

"this album is so powerful to the ears alone and pumps straight thru my heart all the songs on here are smash hits"
