    As warmly irresistible as the Feeling, the impossibly catchy 'Best Of Me' nods to Elton John's 'Your Song' and it's the finest moment here. [Oct 2008, p.150]
  2. Overall you're left with the aural equivalent of an unexpectedly comfy bed in a cheap hotel--relaxing, welcoming, unexpectedly pleasant, but eminently forgettable.
  3. Hard-working hat-wearing ‘Had A Bad Day’ songwriter Daniel Powter’s third album is a bit of a mess when all’s said and done.
  4. Mojo

    A square-jawed, piano-based, falsetto-flecked collection of sediment sentiment. [Oct 2008, p.109]
  5. Uncut

    This is music that was manufactured to be played everywhere except those places to which people go when they want to hear music. [Oct 2008, p.105]

He is definitely one of the many underrated artists. Full Review »

    As Uncut say, it is the most awful manufactured rubbish ever!
