Some of the songs are breath-taking they are so fabulously beautiful. Others bring a tear to your eye and it ends with rip-roaring fun.

As far as I feel Michael Ball has the best voice ever! This album is worth every penny. And no it does not list the songs on it, but if anyone wants to see the full list just go to his web site and you can see them there. All the songs are good but The Impossible Dream, Gethsemane, and another one that he wrote-Just When make this album worth it. If you are a fan you will not be disappointed. And if you are not you will be after hearing this album.

This compact disc, with songs sung by Michael Ball of England, entitled THE VERY BEST OF MICHAEL BALL: PAST AND PRESENT, was purchased from Amazon. This album, music written mostly by Lord Andrew Webber, is especially good listening because of the selections rendering tracks of music and lyrics of another era. I recommend it highly to those who love and appreciate the musical stage productions of the past years.

I have always liked Michael Ball and this has become one of my favorite albums. If ever a voice was made for Broadway musicals, it is Michael Ball. This includes well known music from Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera. In addition are songs I had not heard before, 'The Boy from Nowhere' from Matador, 'Loving You' from Passion, 'Love Changes Everything' from Aspects of Love, 'Tell Me It's Not True' from Blood Brothers, all songs that I find going thru my head long after I've turned off the music. Two of my favorite songs are 'The Winner Takes It All' and 'If Tomorrow Never Comes', he makes them his songs and does such a good job on both.

The title of this CD says it all. There are songs from many of the shows that Michael Ball has been in over the last 25 years. If you are looking for a CD that can sweep you away from the daily grind, this is it. No matter how bad my day has been, as soon as I hear his amazing voice I get swept away. Michael Ball does more than sing a song, he brings it to life. That may sound sappy to you, but trust me, it really happens! If you are a Michael Ball fan, or even if by some strange twist of fate you've never heard his voice, buy this CD you'll never regret it.

Michael Ball is the best. He is an amazing performer and can reach notes that are mind boggling. I can't get enough of this CD. Out of all my CDs I play this the most. He is a great talent and I wish more people in America would discover Michael Ball.
