Album: Shayne Ward - Obsession

Shayne Ward

Release date

It's out now!

The style

This is the third album from 2005 X Factor winner Shayne Ward! He's been away for a while, and this is his BIG comeback!

He's spent the last two years working on this album and is making his return with a new sense of style and purpose.

And there's a great mix of pop songs on offer. Shayne really shows off his great voice as every song has perfectly executed vocals!

The hits

We're very excited about the song Must Be A Reason. It's really high tempo and great to dance to! Awesome!

Someone Like You is another one to check out, but our favourite has to be Human. It's a REALLY good song with a nice blend of piano melodies and hard thumping beats!

The misses

Waiting In The Wings and Foolish were both a bit boring! We nearly fell asleep listening to them. Yawn!

Will you still be humming it next week?

Some of the songs are very similar, but there's definitely a few tracks on the album which you'll be singing along to!

Will it make the charts?

Shayne has been off the radar for a little while, leaving fellow X Factor winners such as Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke to take the pop world by storm.

But, with a bit of time to put all his efforts into this album, he'll be hoping he gets back to the top of the pop charts!!

It's a decent album and we predict a top 10 finish!

NR rating:

Three out of five

"It's OK but I only listen to it sometimes. I think Shayne took too long to release another song. It also could have been better!"

Rejuwana, 10, London, England

"It's a little middle of the road, none of the songs are too special. We think he's a little too old and he's left it too late to come back."
