His best album in years. great songs, great performances. Michael takes each time tested song and makes it his own.

If there is a negative, i didnt really care for NY State Of Mind. For The Good Times, Play Me, are outstanding. i especially like his take on Neil Diamond's Play Me. Maybe the best version yet. You feel the true beauty of the lyric, as only Michael can deliver it.

Keep doing what your doing. You are one of the best singers of this generation. Keep it up Mr Ball!! And yes, You're on the Ball!!!!

Michael Ball got me hooked the first time I saw the Les Miserables 10th Anniversary concert. His rendition of Empty Chairs and Empty Tables makes my heart bleed. "Heroes" is the first of his solo albums that I've purchased and will probably buy more, not only because of his velvet voice but because of his impeccable phrasing. In this album, he becomes Neil Diamond (Play Me is to die for), Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones, and many others. The only reason I give this four-stars instead of five is that I would have preferred the background music be more neutral to showcase his vocal skills rather than following in the same accompaniment styles as his "heroes". However, others may find this to be a plus in this fine collection of favorites.

We have heard all these tunes before....but now Michael Ball is singing them! He makes each song his own, and no one will ever do them better. Michael is always amazing, but this is probably the most all around perfect collection he has given to us!

Michael Ball is a consumate entertainer with a great voice. His experiemce on the London stage makes for a great grounding in his presenation - and of course - that great singing voice.

With his extraordinary voice, Ball could just walk into the studio and produce a good recording, and when I saw the play list for Heroes, I expected a few of these old classics to be stale. Instead he carefully crafted each song into his own recognizable style, and, to my amazement, took such masterpieces as Neil Diamond's "Play Me" and Elvis's "Can't Help Falling in Love" and actually improved them! "Summer Wind" and "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" are also particularly strong.

This collection features a smooth and rich Ball, who claims that quitting smoking expanded the reach of his voice. It shows. There is less of power that many of us have come to expect from the stage performer, but a steady flow of mellow classics that mix beautifully.

I'm not sure this is Ball's best collection--there is no "Empty Chair and Empty Tables" or "Love Changes Everything," but from start to finish this is first-rate music masterfully performed by one of the world's great talents.

No one sings quite like Michael Ball, which is why I buy all his music and have for many years. He can express emotion like few can, and with his musical background allows you to understand every word. This is an exceptional selection of songs that you'll want to listen to over and over because you can get lost in his expressive style. Especially outstanding are Misty, For the Good Times, For Once in my Life, Weekend in New England, but really, they are all beautifully done. Please keep performing, Michael. Your singing has got me through a lot, and I've thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

Mr. Ball delivers another CD of cover songs and makes them his own. Neil Diamond's "PLAY ME" is the best I've heard. My husband bought a copy for his van because of "HE"LL HAVE TO GO" and "YOU DON"T KNOW ME", songs from his era. Interesting choice of "AVENUES AND ALLEYWAYS". After all those unabashedly romantic songs, we are given a taste of reality. Good job, Mr. Ball. Thank you!
