Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Never let it be said that Michael Bolton is ignorant of his times. He may not always participate in them -- he spent the better part of the new millennium on the sidelines, occasionally singing covers, even indulging in an album-long tribute to Sinatra -- but he's aware of them, as One World One Love, released in the U.K. in 2009 and the U.S. in 2010, illustrates.
