Title: Lee Ryan
Lee Ryan is one of the most popular
band members of Blue, the extremely well-known UK pop
band. Ryan uses his resounding and soulful vocals to
bring Blue songs to their best. Now going solo, his
song "Army of Lovers" lets him stretch his
vocal abilities to the limit. "Turn Your Car Around"
is smooth with a hint of melancholic guitar rhythm.
"When I Think of You" is bright and upbeat
and makes you want to dance. "Parking" has
clear keyboards that demonstrate a certain sensitivity
and romance. "Wish The Whole World Knew" is
light and pleasing. "Miss My Everything" is
bluesy with a hint of jazz. "Daydreamer" is
poetry, like a traveling poet telling his life story.
"Jump" is a surprising dash of light rock.
"How Do I?" brings in strings to make it a
moving love song. The album concludes with "In
The Morning", the acoustic guitar calming listeners
down. In this album, Lee experiments with all styles
of singing but manages to retain his own vocal style,
making this an interesting album with its natural continuity.
