The Associated Press Review: “Engelbert Humperdinck defies time, age on new album”
Writer, Pablo Gorondi from The Associated Press highly praises Engelbert Humperdinck‘s new album, ‘The Man I Want to Be,’ starting his latest album review off with, “There’s hardly a false note on Engelbert Humperdinck’s The Man I Want to Be.”
“…50 years after his first hits and closing in on his 82nd birthday, Humperdinck has created a heartfelt album anchored in archetypal orchestrations and honest, unspoiled performances of well-chosen songs.”
Gorondi celebrated ‘The Man I Want to Be‘ for it’s diverse track-listing, which ranges from adapted versions of contemporary hits like Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph” and Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are,” heartfelt originals like “Just Like the First Time”, and live show favorites such as Willie Nelson’s “Crazy” and “On Broadway.”
“Created as a message of love to his wife Patricia, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, her muse has brought the best out of her husband of over 50 years.
Albums he made a decade ago or more were already said to be possibly his last but “The Man I Want to Be” is vintage Humperdinck and a rewarding listen.”
