When IBL first came out I didn't buy it because I didn't like the few promos that I'd heard at the time. But last week it was available for just over £2 so I couldn't resist.
Now I'm confused...
On one hand, I absolutely love the songs. One after another they hit you with catchy melodies, often in the first couple of lines (for example Better To Be, Second Chance, Remember When etc).
On the other hand, I don't much like Liam's voice. Sometimes he sounds out of key, but I could live with that if only his voice was distinctive and interesting in its tone. There are lots of examples of singers who haven't got the greatest classical voices, but sound great because of their unique tone. Think Elton John or Madonna; or closer to home, Liam's Dad.
So top marks for Liam's songwriting and musical ability, the guy's a real talent. But I just wonder how great these songs could sound with his Dad or Uncle singing them ?
