Editorial Reviews

2009 debut album from the American Idol alumni. Though Michael Johns only came in eighth on Season 7 (in 2008), his early exit gave him the time and energy to concentrate on writing and recording Hold Back My Heart. The album features six songs co-written by Johns and Dave Cobb while Diane Warren and British singer-songwriter James Morrison also contribute lyrics. 12 tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Johns rocks with soul June 23, 2009
By Maja K.
Format:Audio CD
I love the soul/rock vibe of the album. Michael's voice is incredible and his talent is huge. The whole album is amazing and it's something you can listen over and over again. I recommend this album to everyone who loves rock/soul/bluesy music.

4.0 out of 5 stars This CD was well worth the long wait!!! : ) June 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Ever since we first saw him on American Idol Season 7, my wife and I knew this guy had talent!!! We were shocked to see him go so early in the competition--sadly, only 8th place!!! We thought he would at least be in the final two or three for sure! Needless to say, we have been waiting a long time for his album to come out, and it doesn't disappoint. It captures the bluesy, soulful side that he showed he had on American Idol. Most of his songs remind me of his performance of "It's All Wrong But It's All Right" on American Idol. My only complaint is that I wish he had some upbeat songs on this album that showed more of his rocker side, too. He proved he could really belt out the rock tunes during his stint on American Idol! He is definitely a talented guy, and we hope he has a long, successful music career. If you are a Michael Johns fan, you won't be disappointed with his debut album at all. Show your support, and go buy it today!!! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Yourself a Favour . Check out HBMH. June 23, 2009
By Ausjude
Format:Audio CD
If you want to hear a great soulful , heartfelt album , HBMH is the album for you. I love how his voice shows such feeling . There is a good range of songs , something for everyone , from Rock / soul to the blues . My favourite song on the album is Turn to You , a very simple acoustic rendition, but so effective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! June 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This album is fantastic! It's a great mix of music: there are tunes you can dance to, and stuff that's perfect for just relaxing. Michael's voice is gorgeous, powerful, full of soul...and dead sexy.

Michael Johns (who co-wrote 6 out of the 12 tracks) has put together a terrific record; there's not a bad song in the bunch. Definitely check this one out!
