Prefer All The Songs over the new single personally but both are decent. Didn't realise till I read in the newspaper that My Love was filmed in my town lol. Its not like anyone films anything here.

Impressed that he's got another top 2 album nearly 20 years later and from someone who won a talent show as well!


Yes itís great, but the reason is that he was never your archetypal talent show winner, thereís much more to him than meets the eye as well as his wonderful singing ability.

Have to applaud him, he has managed to get a really successful career from a talent show. Probably helped that he was one of the first but definitely helped that he took control and didn’t allow himself to be promoted as an of the moment pop star releasing endless cover versions. Was listening to the Friday’s Child album the other day and it still sounds great.

A very solid album ❤️
My favourites are Get Me Dancing and Forever.
Forever gives me the "Hearts On Fire" vibe, love it so much.

I think Get Me Dancing is a slow burner, itís really grown on me. wub.gif And Forever is all I hoped it would be when we heard the sample so long ago.

Reminds me of Friday's Child being filmed in my old hometown (Saltdean) and the basic swimming pool I used to go to (Newhaven), seemed so random to me as nobody ever goes to or even knows of these places laugh.gif

Anyway, this album is really good. Get Me Dancing and Ground Running are my initial standouts but the whole album is so solid, cohesive and consistent. Good for him getting another top two album so many years into his career!

Agree with your comments about the album, Iíve played it a great deal and thereís not one track I dislike.

My favourite place in the album is from Say Anything to The Way Wr Were then back to the beginning for All Songs, My Love, and Scars, Get Me Dancing and Ground Running. It all flows so well. wub.gif

Just posting to say that I'm loving all the songs on Lexicon, heart.gif in my opinion it's way better and superior lyrically than Echoes.
Roll on October when I can see him manchester.

I like the album alot but i think the first half is stronger than the second.

Ground Running is the obvious next single. Addictive!

So many failed opportunities for singles

From Now On...i would have loved 'Over You' to be released. It's a corker!

Friday's Child....Out Of My Mind is a real gem. This is though an OUTSTANDING album, one of my fave by any artist of all time.

Keep On...I think Ain't Such A Bad Place To Be / Madness could have really worked well. Under-rated! Not a bad title track either...

Let It Go....I Won't Give Up is a real groover...reminds me of Your Game. Then, Tell Me The Worst really showcases Will vocally as does If Love Equals Nothing - thats the sort of song that sells albums.

Echoes....so many? Hearts On Fire, Happy Now, Silent Valentine? Need i continue...

85% Proof...not as strong in terms of singles and i think they got it mostly right but U Think I'm Sexy was really different and cool for me..

Lexicon...it'd be criminal not to release Ground Running. Scars gave me goosebumps the first time i heard it.

'Ground Running' confirmed as the third single.

Added to Will's singles playlist a week ago on Spotify!

Fab video please. Pretty much all the confirmation we needed.

'Runaway' is THE one. I was really pissed they didn't release that.

Excellent news about 'Ground Running'.

Will said recently how much his band love Runaway. He was going to drop it from his setlist but they persuaded him not to.
