Thank You – The new album from Declan – Review

declanJust got the new album of Declan ” Thank you ” and decided to write a short review of my first impressions of it. Starting from the covers – the artwthem looks quite cool and the pictures are chosen very carefully.But then again the music if far more important that them . Let me say a few words about each song from the album :

“An angel” – video clip-originally performed by Kelly Family . Excellent performance of Declan – while listening to his angelic voice you most likely will feel the song especially if there is there is a person in your life who is like an angel to you. I enjoy singing along while listening to that song and am hoping to see a Karaoke version of it in the near future. An Angel – lyrics

Love of my life “ – originally performed by Freddie Mercury .Very calm and romantic song. Since Queen is one of my favorite bands and Freddie Mercury is someone I admire with all my heart – I was wondering if Declan will be able to sing that song good enough as not to make me angry with someone attempting to sing Freddie`s songs like on these stupid remixes so popular these days. Declan did good ! Love of life – Lyrics Video clip

Nights in White Satin– video clip- originally performed by The Moody Blues. My favorite song of ” Thank you ” Declan clearly demonstrated the capability of his voice performing this song.I agree with an opinion I saw at SongFacts that the ending of the song is the coolest part of it. Nights in White Satin Lyrics

Tears in Heaven originally performed by Eric Clapton.The track is a very touching new arrangement of this wonderful song. The guitars and especially the back vocals sound amazing. Tears in Heaven Lyrics

BrightEyes composed by Mike Batt . Personally I did not like this song much – but you may think otherwise. In anycase : Bright eyes – Lyrics

House Of The Rising Sun – originally performed by Bob Dylan I can write just one word for this song : classy ! The lyrics are very good too. House Of The Rising Sun – Lyrics

Saved By The Bell

A nice ballad – originally performed by Bee Gees . Thanks to Blue you can now find its lyrics in the comments below this post.

David’s Song (Who’ll Come With Me) – video clip

Yet another song originally performed by the Kelly Family. I am glad that Declan brings back such wonderful vibes -the spoken words in this song sound very nice and overall this song is one of my favourite ones from the new album of Declan. The lyrics can be seen here.

All Out Of Love

Originally performed by Air Supplylyricsvery calm song , I did not know about Air Supply before hearing this song, but now will make sure to find some more song of this group. Declan performs the song quite good as well.

How Could An Angel Break My Heart

Originally performed by Toni Braxton. Trough I like the music of Toni Braxton I feel that song much more personal once I heard it performed by Declan. It may just be bacause my taste for treble music ( and yes I think that the Declan `s voice is still treble ) . This song is just perfect for dancing with the girl you love. And the lyrics – see them here

  1. Well, I have just listened An Angel – a friend send me link to hear online. What an awesome song, both of lyric and his angelic voice ! I’m going to adore him :”> He’s only 15, same to me, and his voice is so amazing, sometimes it reminds me Billy Gilman’s 3 years ago. Surely, I’ll buy his latest album :) .

    His homepage has some troubles now -.- I can’t access, hope it’ll be back soon.

  2. Wow I just about 3 days ago heard ago Declan. I was on youtube.com and watching a Billy Gilman movie and a comment to it said to check out Declan and I must say I was blown away. This guy has amazing talent and I’ve never seen somone my age sing the type of music that he does and it’s nice and refreshing. But living in the States I thought it would be hard to get his new album but as Skykid said my friend was able to leagally download it for me, but I’m not quite sure where she got it from. But yeah, wow, he is very talented and I’m very glad I heard about him and his music.

  3. I have only discovered Declan’s music as of a few days ago. I am already blown away by his gift. I can’t wait to get this album, although I have heard a few of the tracks. I think Love of My Life is really a stuuner. I’m really glad to have found such a great new talent. I look forward to following his career from now on. Thanks for your review!
