Editorial Reviews

Second album from the first UK Pop Idol champion attempts to broaden his style, with Young getting more involved in the production process, co-writing more than half the songs. The album's title track is a fully orchestrated nine minute epic & it also features a cover of Stephen Stills's 'Love The One You're With' as well as the single 'Leave Right Now'. 11 tracks. Copy Controlled. BMG. 2003.

Customer Reviews

Will Young has shown on his second album why he won Pop Idol.
stephen Garry
He has such an incredible range as well, and the songs on the CD are range from fun and to jazzy and showcase Young's voice superbly.

I bought everything on CD and DVD that Will has released the next day.

Oh, Wow! This guy's voice is just astonishing. Like a painter or sculpter creating visual images Will uses his voice to sculpt musical pictures in an ultra cool, futuristic way that is guaranteed to blow the mind. Will is a genius. He is light years ahead of anyone else. His magnetic delivery of "Light my Fire" at the "World Idol" contest left me reeling, and I am glad I taped it. I bought everything on CD and DVD that Will has released the next day. If you want the DVDs you have to order through Amazon.com,uk. and you need a PAL, Region 2 capable DVD player like a Daewoo to play them. But it is worth it.
Song #3 "Stronger" is indescribable how he uses his amazing vibrato in a vocal loop that makes it sound almost flute-like at times.
#4 "Leave Right Now" is an incredibly hypnotic love song that he ignites with his special magic and passion that gets you where you live. And you feel it.

#5 "Love is a matter of distance" is so deeply beautiful it will make you cry when you hear it. His incredible tone perfect voice with its natural vibrato is so amazingly elastic its almost unbelievable.

Songs 6-10 are songs he wrote. They are very very different and experimental. It may take several listenings before one can take in all the complexities he creates musically, especially with his astonishing vocal range and his sound sculpting abilities with his vocal elasticity. Backup tracks that he sings are amazing. He is an amazing song writer. Overall, to me, it sounds like a totally european really hip music scene.
Song #11 Is just gorgeous. His voice is just gorgeous. He is an incredible song stylist. An amazing, ultra hip sound track with its hypnotic groove shimmers behind his voice and vice versa. You gotta have this CD. It's Totally 21st Century Sound. Incredible!

When I first heard of Will Young it was shortly after his pop idol win, and I downloaded a few of his tracks. I wans't impressed by the caliber of songs, but Wills voice always attracted me so I kept "Light My Fire" around. Now proving the critics wrong by being the first idol winner to release a second album (as far as I know) Will presents us with "Friday's Child" an 11 song album that both showcases Wills enjoyable voice, newfound versatility, and fun songs. While initially Will faced some criticism for being nothing more then a textbook ballad singer, he has burst out with a variety of songs.
The album starts off with the gospel-esque "Love The One Your With" a good boppy head-bouncing track that showcases Wills voice on this cover. After this comes the funky "Your Game", which I believe is Will's new single. This is sorta Justin Timberlake/NSYNC-esque with a sorta start-and-stop vocal style, reminsicent of boy bands but cooler.
Drift away into the soulful, peaceful opening to "Stronger", a track about Will's desire to prove himself musically (and who knows where else). His voice just glides over this. "Leave Right Now" is a Boyzone-ish type guitar ballad, but his voice just gives me the chills in this track and the next one. "Love Is A Matter Of Distance" is one of the shortest songs but also one of the best in my opinion, with great lyrics, and a really nice background to it. Wills voice just sounds so sweet and innocent on this one, amazing!
After that slow set, hop right into another funky track, "Dance The Night Away" which just makes you want to get up and do as the title says. A different sound for Will's voice, again a bit boy-band like, but quite unique.

I was introduced to Will Young through a fluke watching "World Idol," a show that I usually would object to watching. Anyway, after his performance, I was hooked. He sings with such passion and heart. This is a great CD, as well as his other one!

Being the winner of the first UK Idol, Will Young had a lot riding on the all important album number two! The main difference between this second album, and the first, is clearly the amount of original songs on "Friday's Child" and the development and versatility of Will's voice.
Each track on this album showcases and emphasises just how unique and talented Young is and this begins from the very moment you press play and hear the cover of "Love the One you're with". Although a cover, Will manages to make it his own with his strong vocals and gospel like backing vocals.
The number one hit single "Leave Right Now" is a clear standout track, with dreamy instrumental and chilling vocals by Young, it's a recipe for a perfect ballad. The upbeat chorus, however, ensures that Young doesn't go down the typical ballad road, which is very refreshing and present throughout the album's other tracks.
Another standout track is single two from the album, "Your Game". Here we have the lyrics of what could have been another ballad, but is not due to the funky beats, catchy backing vocals and of course Young's versatile voice! It's impossible not to tap your foot (at the very least!) to this track!
"Out of my mind" cannot be ignored either with its disco boogie feel, it's quite different to any other track but somehow it still works! I think it's the mix of Young's fast flowing vocals and the upbeat instrumentals (listen for that trumpet!) that makes this track one of my favourites.
"Free" is one of the tracks Young co-wrote and is almost acoustic like in it's sound. It is a perfect opportunity to hear Young's calming voice and you can quite easily get lost in this track's lyrics.
