Overview

Westlife has taken the world by storm much in the same manner as did their predecessors Boyzone and Take That. Under the tutelage of Ronan Keating (from Boyzone) and his manager, Louis Walsh, five handsome and, most importantly, talented young men were assembled and groomed to create this debut. The album itself is well-sung, but all too similar in its final output. Mostly comprised of ballads whose theme is the obvious sort (i.e., love gained, lost, and pleaded for), the hooks are infectious and several tracks are destined for recurrent radio status in the not-too-distant future. This pared-down collection of songs from their multi-platinum worldwide smash release is much more palatable than its original incarnation, which ran a lengthy 17 tracks. The gems and solid compositions are what their American label has presented. Every song is well-produced and well-placed in the set; as mentioned, each track is perfectly executed. This assemblage is a worthy complement to the listening pleasures of anyone enjoying the likes of today's most popular boybands (e.g., Backstreet Boys, Five, N'Sync). The album overall can be characterized as sometimes bland but unforgettable, with the standouts "Flying Without Wings," "I Don't Wanna Fight," and "Swear It Again." [The German edition cuts "My Private Movie" and changes the track order, but also adds "Moments," "Change the World," "Seasons in the Sun," "Try Again," and "What I Want Is What I've Got"]

If you never heard of Westlife before, you better start by listening to the very first track off this album, Swear It Again. The first time I heard this boyband's ballad, I thought it's just another ordinary boyband but once you own this album, you'll know that they're so unique with their own Irish ways...Westlife Rulz-don't you agree?

I just want to say that Westlife is an awesome group! Every one of their songs is good and their lyrics go right to my heart! They don't get all the credit they deserve, though! Get this CD!

I first heard Westlife in Oct. 99 and was amazed at how sweet their harmonies are. Not to mention they have a special place in my heart, since one of their numbers is me and my guy's song. All these other guys better watch out cause Westlife is gonna rule the music scene before too long!

I thought every song on the album was superb! Their voices come together brilliant but each of them sounds even better on their own. I'd advise anyone who doesn't have it GO AND GET IT now!

The five guys who form the band are too good....buy the CD...you won't regret it! If you like pleasant music (not too loud, and which won't give you a headache...) this is it! I loved their songs and their voices....they are too good!!

This group is so awesome. I love their music and their style. I also love the guys, they're pretty cute. I love all their songs. They're very sad and very touchy. I hope this group is doing well with their life and their careers. Well, Bye guys and good luck.

This review IS old, but I've recently taken this cd out and played it again. I once again have been invigorated and moved by the wonderful lyrics. I got this cd the day it came out in the US and listened to it non-stop for approximately 2 months. My faves are the ballads such as ''Swear it Again'', ''Flying Without Wings'', and ''I Don't Wanna Fight''.

Westlife takes pop back to its roots. . . rather than an overproduced collection of songs that will be popular for 4-6 weeks and then forgotten, the songs have a timeless feel but are utterly irresistible. Your mom will love it, but, more importantly, so will you. These guys are absolute ballad kings (check out the hits 'Swear It Again' and 'Flying Without Wings' for proof) and have incredible individual and group vocals, with some of the most distinctive voices you'll hear in pop. Not just another boyband, Westlife has crafted a great album in which all 17 tracks are completely listenable. Highly recommended.
