5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and convincing July 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
While I don't usually delve into male singers terribly often, but this Australian Idol runner-up has all the elements that I like in a performer. The songs are fresh, he sings them convincingly and there's enough melding of pop, rock, and country to keep my interest months after I first heard him (then, purchased this disc). It doesn't hurt that he's easy on the eyes either...

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK for a while May 1, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A few months ago I would've given this album 4 stars but it's not an album that will last over time. I do enjoy listening to some of the songs, but after a few weeks I stopped listening to it. It is better than Guy Sebastian's album though, after listening to it a couple of times I couldn't stand it.
I'll go through the tracks one at a time because no one seems to have done that yet.
1- DRIVE - One of the catchiest songs on the album. The lyrics are not that great but I do like hearing this on the radio.
2- NEW BEGINNING - This song is only just OK. His voice doesn't sound very good on it.
3- WHAT ABOUT ME - I can't tell you how sick of this song I am. When he first performed it on Australian idol was when I started supporting him, but I have heard this so many times that it's slowly driving me insane.
4- BURN - I actually do like this song. It has nice lyrics and it's sung quite well.
5- SITTIN' PRETTY - This song isn't sung well and I hardly ever listened to it. It might just be that it's a terrible song, so I blame whoever wrote it.
6- LEARN TO FLY - One of the strongest songs on the album. Good lyrics, good vocals, nice ballad.
7- PROMISES - I think I have listened to this song (at most) about 3 times. It's boring, that's all I can think to say about it.
8- TUNE IN - Not a great song, kind of interesting but you get sick of it very quickly.
9- PROVE - The backing singers in this song are the ones who sing the home and away theme. Bad idea. This song will also get on your nerves very quickly.
10- WISE - It's boring. It took forever for me to actually listen to this song, I've never really liked it.
11- THE WAY SHE LOVED ME - I don't listen to this song much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Talent from Australian Idol July 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was in New Zealand for a semester studying abroad and I didn't even know this guy was from Australian Idol. I listened to it at the CD store and I was impressed. I especially like Learn to Fly and New Beginning. I really enjoy this CD! If you like Sister Hazel-type groups you will like this album!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing. April 7, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First of all, comparing Shannon with John Farnham and Jimmy Barnes is wrong. Shannon is a disgrace to many great Australian artists as he could only beg and complain.
As far as singing and talent, Shannon has neither. I still don't understand how he could become runner-up, a position he does not deserver. I think it's the judges' fault that he was in the competition in the first place.
"What About Me", while it is a good song, Shannon's version has been overplayed. The more you listen to it, the more you'll realise how bad he sounds. As the rest of the songs (Drive, Burn, etc), they are simply bad. They may sound good if sung by other singers, but definitely not by Shannon.
Save your money and more importantly, save your ears!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really excellent album April 27, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There are so many beautiful and very emotional tracks on this album that would make excellent singles: Burn, Wise, New Beginnings, Tune In and Learn to Fly, not to mention The Way She Loved Me and The Way That I Feel. He has chosen beautiful tunes to include in his album.
And his voice has tiny touches of Richard Marx and Bryan Adams and Australia's own giant, John Farnham, but is quite different from all of those and distinctive in his own right.
I really recommend That's What I'm Talking About. This album is very addictive and once you start listening you just don't want to play anything else.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish at best, an insult to music at worst July 6, 2004
By Charlie
Format:Audio CD
Utter dross, a butchering of some half decent tunes into a worthless mess. Alex Smith and the boys of Moving Pictures might be happy with the royalty cheques, but I can't help but thinking this insipid version of "What About Me?" should make them re-release the original and put this mediocre imitation to sleep permanently.

I only heard this album once, but it was once too often. Leave this for the bargain bin at the local CD store and for garage sales where it will surely end up.

How come Steve from Melbourne is now Chicky from Dalby? How come Chicky from Dalby is now Annette from Kingaroy?

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this one! April 29, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I love this album. There is not a single track that you want to hurry through.
Shannon has a big 'rock' voice but he sings soft romantic ballads so sexily that he burns.
In fact, one of my favourite tracks on this album is called Burn -- and it does.
Wow!

5.0 out of 5 stars THATS WHAT Im TALKING ABOUT May 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
boyoboy, this is close to being one of my favourite albums of all time.

There is not a track in it that does not make me weak at the knees.

Or just plain weep.

This is one to listen to on your own, with the lights dim and the candles soft.

There is the big beautiful ballad WHAT ABOUT ME that has just gone 4 x platinum and is one of the biggest selling singles in Australian music history. Shannon sings it with such heart, and his version is all set to become a great Aussie classic ballad.

Then follows a catchy rock number, DRIVE, written by Bryan Adams that will be the next giant single. The lyrics are upbeat and groovy and are about 'going all the way'-- a slice too subtle for the previous reviewer on here.

Then there is a selection of haunting, emotional and downright sexy ballads where Shannon sings and creates this wonderful chemistry that just sizzles your blood.

Shannon has this lovely texture to his voice that makes 'love lost' really wrenching.

BURN is incredibly sexy, as the verses and chorus blend seamlessly together sung in that hot yummy voice:

"Oh, you twist and turn me

Ignite and stir me, yeah..."

NEW BEGINNING brings out the most beautiful lyric lilts in Shannon's voice:

"If I'd known what you would say

I'd have turned and walked away."

TUNE IN is sad -- "Out of work, out of place and out of love" -- but hopeful in the end. It really is one of my favourite tracks.

LEARN TO FLY is a complete tearjerker about finding your way through the impossible roads life sometimes asks us to travel:

"When you feel the dream is over

Feel the world is on your shoulders...
