Rewired is a fine record, a mix of pop
ock synth-orchestrated balladry that favorably recalls both the mid-'70s work of Genesis and the more pop-focused work of Phil Collins -- Paul Carrack's singing is excellent, and Mike Rutherford and Robbie McIntosh's playing (and Rutherford's programming) are seamless and always interesting; only when Rupert Cobb takes over the programming, on "Perfect Child," does the music veer a little too far out of rock and into the pop category, but the interlude is forgivable and the song is pretty enough to carry off the switch in mood.

I have always been a fan of Mike + The Mechanics. I thought it was the end for them when Paul Young sadly passed away after the release of their M6 album. All I can say is, even though I greatly miss Paul Young's vocals, this is an amazing CD. The stand out songs on this CD are "If I Were You", "I Don't Want It All" & "Perfect Child"
