Hmm. So I knew of Paul Young basically from Live Aid, and having recently watched a documentary about the legendary concert, it seemed about time to give him a go. I wasn’t expecting there to be quite so many covers on the album, and very surprised to see a Joy Division song on there.

I didn’t really enjoy the rest of the album much either. He’s a bit of a crooner, this Paul Young, and I found the backing vocals really intrusive and quite annoying. Bit of a shame, but at least we still have Live Aid!

Rating: 2 / 5
