There is very little left to say about an album which got one of my most swooning reviews on its original release last year. By the time you read this it will no doubt have produced its fourth UK Top 10 hit with the rock orientated "I Can't Read You". It's the inclusion of that track which is one of the reasons for this repackage. The clever studio guys have come up with a harder, more immediate mix which sounds absolutely great on radio. If that remix alone wasn't suffient reason to purchase this, you've also got acoustic versions of hits "James Dean" and "If You're Not The One" (the latter displaying Daniel's vocal abilities in all their spine tingling power) but best of all, there's another ballad, "Never Gonna Leave Your Side", which will surely be a smash when released as a single. One of the most eclectic debuts ever with R&B, pop, rock, hip-hop all showing through, Daniel is in my book the best singer on Britain's pop scene.
