CD Reviews

ONE OF THE FINEST VOCALISTS
08/27/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Right up there with the talents of George Michael and Freddie Mercury, TOny Hadley is one of the finest voices to come out of the 80's pop world. This CD is a permanent fixture in the player. Tony needs some real promotion and management, but the talent will not fail"
Great CD

"Hadley's version of these songs are excellent and very different than the originals. However, this is what I enjoyed. His singing is great. A fantastic surprise."
Tony Hadley, what a voice. Too bad the CD is lacking.

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Tony Hadley the singer from the 80s pop sensation Spandau Ballet shines on this solo effort with "Save A Prayer" a remake of the Duran Duran classic, which actually outshines the original. Tony Hadley co-wrote several songs on this CD, including "She" a lovely ballad about his daughter, and "Wonderful Life", and also a great remake of the Tears for Fears song "Woman In Chains.", however the downside of this song is there are too many covers including "Free Falling" from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, "Shes Gone" a tired 70s tune from Hall and Oates, and "Have You Seen Her". Tony definitely has a talent in songwriting, he should just put that effort entirely on one CD, and forget the covers of rehashed songs past their prime."
