With their fifth album, "Turnaround" is by far Westlife's best album. If you're a fan of great pop music, then this is the album for you.
Track One: Mandy - A cover of the Barry Manilow classic, at first I was worried about this song being on the album, however, any worries that I had soon disappeared as soon as I listened to it. Westlife once again take a classic song, and make it their own, without changing it beyond recognition.
Track Two: Hey Whatever - The first single from the album, Hey Whatever is not your typical Westlife track. It's fun and upbeat, and unlike anything on the radio today.
Track Three: Heal - Another great song. Once again, not a ballad, this mid-tempo song shows off the vocal talents of every single 'Lifer and makes you realize why they are so popular.
Track Four: Obvious - My personal favourite on this album. Obvious is what you've come to expect from Westlife, an amazing ballad. However, this ballad is different from others that Westlife have done. It's unique and different, but has an amazing build up throughout the song that you just can't help but feel the emotions sung about in the song.
Track Five: When A Woman Loves A Man - More your typical Westlife ballad, some say that this song should have been on an earlier album. While it is a song you'd expect to hear from Westlife, this ballad once again, has amazing vocals, as well as amazing music, and the two together make it an amazing song.
Track Six: On My Shoulder - This song is another ballad, however, like many of the ballads on the album it is unlike any ballad you've heard before. With a more earnest sound to it, this song is bound to be one of your favourites.
Track Seven: Turnaround - The title track of the album is once again not something that you'd expect from Westlife. This upbeat track is a great addition to the album, showing just how much the group has changed since their very first album.
Track Eight: I Did It For You - Written by Diane Warren, this is an amazing ballad. Like many of her other songs, this one portrays the emotion most written about in songs, love. Westlife take her song and have created an unforgettable ballad, and it ranks up there with the best of Diane Warren's songs.
Track Nine: Thank You - Another mid to up tempo song, this song once again helps show the growth that the group has gone through musically since the release of their first album.
Track Ten: To Be With You - A cover of the Mister Mr. song, once again Westlife show thier ability to make a song their own, without changing it completely. By updating the musical aspect of the song, they make it accessible to a whole new generation.
Track Eleven: Home - My least favourite track on the album, which is saying a lot as I still love it. Home takes your typical pop ballad formula and changes everything about it. Once again showing off the vocal talents of the group, which is the very reason they have sold so many albums, and been around for so long.
Track Twelve: What Do They Know? - A clever shot at the media, this song examines the fact that people always see the bad things, and never the good things. While this song is written about a relationship, it is obvious that it also talks about the media's obsession with saying that the group is splitting up. It's the perfect song for any diehard Westlife fan.
Once again, Turnaround is Westlife's best album to date. With over 32 million albums sold worldwide, 12 UK number one singles, five sold out tours, and the only "boyband" to release five albums and still be going strong, Westlife proves that they are not your typical boyband.
In fact, they are the exception to every rule. Even with the departure of one of their members, they are planning their sixth album with the all new four-peice Westlife to prove once and for all that Westlife are Unbreakable. Add this album to your collection, and you won't be disappointed.
