Here is the Irish troubadour venturing once again into the realms of a hit single. I mean, it has to happen eventually doesn't it? This time out, it's worth grabbing hold of this release even if you've got the 'Three Feet From Gold' album from which it's sourced as the video for "Oranges" also offered here is fantastic! A children's cartoon, Houston sings the song with an overall fun feel. Still don't understand what the song is about but then, there are a few other things to check out here that put me in the picture including a short interview with Brian. Now if it had been an animated interview with a cartoon Houston, that WOULD have been interesting! Aside from the video and extras on the single, there's "You're An Angel" from the new album and a bonus track called "Hands Wrapped Around My Heart" featuring a downbeat, definitely not animated Houston. All in all, a good little enjoyable package!
