exceptional singer.one of the best.great cd but varied so this album has his moments,many inspirations of the mighty and brilliant mickael bormann.

Bormann like David Reece is the go-to "VOX" for hire if your a band that needs a frontman. They must have ex wives shaking them upside down for alimony pennies as sometimes I think even with their talent they are spreading themselves a little thin. There's a reason these 2 guys are in demand with new and bands past their original vocalist's prime. Bormann has never really blew me away since leaving 'Jaded Heart' and his 'Charade' side project, but he's still got the goods. He's been getting face time on the German version of " The Voice" w/ more pop oriented style to get exposure. At 48 years old it might be a little late to reinvent himself, but what do I know. "Closer" hasn't alienated Bormann's hard rock fans as much as 5 years ago with "D-i-f-f-e-r-e-n-t". That's not to say this album doesn't have some diversity but overall it's planted firmly in hard rock territory. I like this one, just hoping Bormann has one more rabbit to pull out of his hat before he slides out of his prime.

after several spins i can complete my first short comment.michael bormann have always the same beautiful voice.it s a good point.yes this album is mature ,varied but irregular in quality.the best songs are tracks 10.these songs reminds me the glory days of jaded heart.tracks 6 and 8 are decent ,not more.track 2 is a poor party rock song,track 12 a ballad with piano,which have absoluty no interest,track 11 a song with a great choruse but with modern riffs and a poor guitar solo and track 4 is a strange song wich have a southern vibe.this exercice is too dificult for mr bormann (he is not a specialist,it s not his cup of tea).he is far far away from masters of the type like doc holliday or lynyrd skynyrd.for make short ,5 excellent songs on 12 ,it s a little short for me.
