I am not easily impressed , but this album blew me away!
Lea
Overall for a debut album this has to be one of the best I've heard in years and is a true testament to Anthony's ability and diversity as a singer.

I recommend purchasing this album if only to appreciate a quality voice alone.

I was recently in Australia on vacation and saw Anthony's single "The Prayer" in local record stores. It was listed as being # 1 so I was automatically curious how this guy sounded.

As soon as I got back home I did my research on the internet and watched his video's from the Australian Idol website. I was very impressed by this young guy's vocal talents. He definitely had the looks that the Idol shows look for and most definitely the talent! I ordered this album directly from Australia and saved about $10.00 by ordering direct (+ the more favorable currency exchange rate). (As you may or may not know some imports cost more when you buy them in the US.) OK enough about all that - bottom line is - This guy can sing - He sounds like a cross between Justin Timberlake (or Nsync) & The Backstreet Boys so he will definitely sell to thousands of teenage girls but he also has a bit of class about him. At 22 - He has a way to go but you can definitely see the makings of a major talent here.

Check out the following songs: THE PRAYER (Classy & vocally impressive, HURTS SO BAD (Catchy Dance tune) , I WANT YOU, (Jazzy R&B) INTO YOUR HEART, (Another Dance type song) and BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER (Another great ballad with strong vocals)

TAKE IT TO THE HEART sounds exactly like a Backstreet song, and OBVIOUS sounds very much like Take That (remember them?) LOST IN SUMMER is also fun ( Sort of like the Janet Jackson song "SloLove" from her last album. It has the same sunny type of feeling.) I have been listening to this album for about 3 days now and I definitely like it. Looking forward to future albums especially since he is selling like hotcakes in Australia which will give him more artistic control in the future. (His first single THE PRAYER is the # 1 best selling Single in Australia by an Australian artist, His second single went to # 1 and his Debut album went straight to number # 1 as well! The numbers don't lie - check this guy out.

There is no denying that this guy is extremely talented. For a debut album I am presently surprised to hear such a classy, diverse and accomplished effort. Highlights (besides The Prayer that was released in Australia and was a smash hit) are Per Sempre, Bridge Over Troubled water, Hurts So Bad, Into Your Heart and When You Were My Girl. However, there is a great mix of styles to choose from so favourites will surely differ among listeners. I have been enjoying listening to the album on a regular basis and my enjoyment of it hasnt waned. In fact it has grown.

He has defintely a bright future. I recommend purchasing this album if only to appreciate a quality voice alone.

For anyone who hasn't heard of Anthony before, watch out because this guy is going to take the world by storm!! This talented singer from Melbourne Australia is the runner-up for the second series of Australian Idol. This album has it all and showcases Anthony's versatility and stunning voice beautifully.

The album starts off with The Prayer, an amazing recording of Anthony's stellar performance on Australian Idol. The combination of Anthony's voice with the musical arrangement on this track is simply amazing and it's no wonder this song is now the Highest Selling Single by an Australian artist ever.

The second song is Anthony's second single Rain and straight away you get an idea of the versatility of this talented young man. Catchy pop song.

Next up is Hurts So Bad which is another catchy song with great guitars and a wonderful groove to it that has you moving along to it before you even realise.

When I Get There is a gorgeous ballad that has you soaring along with Anthony's voice as he builds this song. I just love this track.

Obvious is another great pop track that is reminiscent of Darren Hayes (Savage Garden). You'll be singing along to this in no time.

What can I say about Per Sempre except WOW. If you thought The Prayer was wonderful, you'll be truly blown away by this track. Spectacular!! After The Prayer and the amazing Don't Tell Me (B-side on the Rain single) who would of thought Anthony could top either of those. But he's done it with this song.

Lost In Summer is a fun, summery song that will have you bopping along. Great to listen to in the car.

I Want You is a mellow, seductive song with a sexy beat that will leave you wanting more.
