Review: Michael English – Some People Change

Michael English - Some People ChangeFor the past several years, the music of Michael English has seemed to reflect a man trying to reestablish his identity. It’s not that the music hasn’t been good, because it has, but its oftentimes felt like English had lost confidence in who he was musically. Slick pop-flavored adult contemporary sounds dominated while lyrics of repentance and healing prevailed, giving insight into the artist’s well-documented ups and down but, while English continued to deliver, it just didn’t feel like he wore those sounds as comfortably as before.

Now, with the release of Some People Change, comments like those can be laid to rest as English finally sounds at home in his voice once again.
