Colin Hay returns with this acoustic affair which combines newly written songs with a smattering newly recorded versions of songs from throughout his career. Colin is, as always, a charismatic performer with intelligent, inspired songwriting. Though many songs on this release have appeared elsewhere, some, such as "Waiting for My Real Life to Begin" and "Beautiful World" are rendered here in what I would consider to be their essential versions. If you haven't checked in with Colin Hay since his Men at Work days, this is a great place to start. Four of the songs from this release have appeared in NBC's Scrubs over the last two seasons; Beautiful World, Overkill, My Brilliant Feat, and Waiting for My Real Life to Begin will be familiar to viewers of the series.

Forget about anything that you remember about Men at Work. This is stipped-down, heartfelt music for the 40+ crowd. Colin's lyrics are hip, refreshing, and mature while staying playful. Middle-age has brought Colin to a place where he has no regrets about his past and is looking forward to the future. I never like a CD after one play. I'll never say never again. Give it a spin - listen to a man comfortably at work.

With the 2005 re-release of the wonderful disc "Going Somewhere" it is evident that Colin Hay has come full-circle from quirky 80's/MTV phemon to a formidable songwriter of appreciable wit and charm, who can make other artists half his age look like they are standing still. And with thanks to some recent exposure on movie and TV soundtracks, Mr. Hay pulled together his most consistent solo album to date. Standout tracks include the immediately appealing "Beautiful World", the intensely moving "Waiting for My Real Life to Begin", and "Looking for Jack", a very catchy offering which, as Mr. Hay hilariously tells in concert, is about a run-in he had with one Mr. Nicholson. Add to this, "I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You" (featured in the movie Garden State, but not on the original release of this album), sweet 12-string work on "Circles Erratica", and some nice slide guitar on "Water Song" and you can start to see why this is such a fantastic little disc. Additionally, given that the album is somewhat of a patchwork quilt of previous efforts (several cuts do appear on earlier albums), in some ways it stands as a fitting document of a decade of high quality and underappreciated musicianship. And as Mr. Hay gets ready to stamp his trademark vocals and tight songwriting on an upcoming solo album of all new material, "Going Somewhere" may be the best disc you can get to hear what you've been missing out on all this time.

I was a bit skeptical of Colin Hay just because I remember him as the goofy guy on MTV talking about vegemite sandwiches...but I heard the song of his on the Garden State soundtrack and that stuck with me. After purchasing this CD my only question is what are you waiting for? If you like Damien Rice, you'll love Colin Hay. He's a bit more brighter than Mr. Rice but equally soulfull. Colin's voice is a marvel to listen to. This kinds reminds me of when I re-discovered Aimee Mann after thinking she was just the chick with the crazy hair in the Till Tuesday video. Boy was I wrong there and equally so here. Great voice, great songwriter, great music. I can't wait to hear what's next.

I had a feeling this would be a great album after sampling one of Colin's originals on the "Garden State" soundtrack called "I just don't think I'll ever get over you". This song is amazing and has all the soul and emotion of anything you'll ever hear.......excuse me, never hear on a radio station. Sample these: "Beautiful World", "Looking for Jack", and "Lifeline".

Colin's guitar playing goes perfectly with his voice and nothing else is needed. No over-played drums, bass, or synthesizers would make this CD any better. In fact, after listening, you forget that most of CD is just Colin and his guitar.

I really like Colin Hay. The instrumental and vocals have always struck me as simple or "clean" and easy but lyrics for some of the songs can be really moving. My personal favorite is "Waiting for my real life to begin" which is what prompted me to buy the album. Actually I had downloaded the album electronically and this hard copy version I had sent to my parents because I thought they'd like it, and they did.

This ol' Man at Work has kept his voice in great shape. Each song showcases his stellar voice supported by beautiful acoustic guitar accompaniment. The compositions are typical of singer-songwriter works and many of them could be played on the radio if radio played anything good these days.

Colin Hay jerks at your heart while telling you a joke. You can find yourself laughing and crying at the same time. He is a master of his craft, but conveys a palpable humility in every track. His refreshing sense of humor is always welcome in my ipod.
