    To be sipped and savored with exquisite pleasure

    One thing that needs to be made clear from the start – Jean Valjean is not singing on this album. That heroic persona is only a role (OK THE role he was born to play), but it’s only one facet of this extremely talented singer. If you only want the grand theatrical style, then check out Stage Heroes. On this album, his voice is as rich, smooth and mellow as the finest Irish whisky, to be sipped and savored with exquisite pleasure as it warms a path right to your heart. The range of musical styles covered is amazing, but Colm makes them all his own – blues, country, rock and folk/ pop. What unifies them all is the tremendous heart he puts into singing that allows him to make such an emotional connection with the listener. I can (and do) listen to this CD everyday. It hasn’t chased my other Wilkinson CDs out of my player, but it definitely makes them share. My personal favorites are the rock n’ roll standard “Red Sails In the Sunset” and 2 original tracks, “We are One” and “I Cannot Stay”. The covers of “ Father and Son” and “MLK/I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” are also exceptional. So, if you like them slow, sad, soulful and romantic, buy this album. If your lady does, then buy it for her.
