iTunes Review

Phil Collins hired three of the surviving Funk Brothers to recreate the sound of old Motown in a studio in Switzerland. Collins has always loved Motown — he had a hit in 1981 with the Supremes’ “You Can’t Hurry Love” — and the 18 tracks on the basic album and 26 on the iTunes Deluxe Version are all done in complete homage to the sound that bedazzled Collins’ youth. The Deluxe Version includes many of Collins’ best efforts. “You Really Got a Hold On Me”, “Dancing In the Streets”, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” and “Standing In the Shadows of Love” are all indestructible, timeless tunes. Collins doesn’t just mine Motown’s biggest hits, but works through “Girl (Why You Wanna Make Me Blue),” “In My Lonely Room” and “Never Dreamed You’d Leave In Summer” with the same passion. He’ll never be Levi Stubbs or Smokey Robinson, but he also doesn’t sound much like the guy whose hits include “Against All Odds”, “Misunderstanding” and “That’s All”. Fans will surely be intrigued.

Staying true...

First up let me say that I'm a huge Phil Collins fan so it's a given that I am going to be slightly biased. Having said that, I'm also a realist. I like this album a lot. For starters, it's great value for money with so many songs on the album. I'm also pleased to hear songs that I've never heard before and I think that Phil is staying true to his own personal feelings and not just trotting out a 'covers' album. The arrangements are tight and the inclusion of some of the original Funk Brothers is evident. For the most part Phil's voice carries these songs very well and there is a sense of sincerity about them. Standouts for me are the slower tracks which really showcase the 'Phil' sound. 'Blame It On the Sun' is particularly good. Other worthy mentions are; 'Nowhere To Run','Take Me In Your Arms, 'Don't Look Back'. 'Papa Was a Rolling Stone' is excellent and the groove is outstanding. For fans of Phil this album is a must, for others buy it and be impressed at this man's immense talents.

Going Back (Deluxe Version)

I like Phil and I like Motown - I particularly like his voice so hearing these songs for me is very enjoyable. It's all a matter of taste, really!

Going Back (Deluxe Version)

I am a massive fan of Phil Collins, and have been for twenty plus years, but it would appear that on this occasion, my addiction is not sufficient.

I am not a huge fan of Motown, but have bought everything that Phil has ever released and assumed that this would be enough reason to buy his first album in eight years. The last time somebody made such a huge error in judgement, it was Tiger Woods thinking to himself "YEAH, WHY NOT, NOBODY WILL EVER FIND OUT"!!

There are a couple of tracks on here that I do like, namely (LOVE IS LIKE A) HEATWAVE, which has the bouncy, energetic catchiness of YOU CAN'T HURRY LOVE, and so it is no surprise that this was chosen as the flag-bearer of the album. Likewise, TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS and GIRL (WHY YOU WANNA MAKE ME BLUE). After this, I am sorry, but this album descends into self-indulgent mush. It is possible that you are of the view that after 30+ years in the industry, Phil has the right to sing the songs that he wants to sing and that he has enough 'cred' to put out whatever he wants and call it a 'NEW' album.

Don't get me wrong, if you like MOTOWN, you will no doubt be a fan, but without a doubt this is for MOTOWN lovers and definitely NOT PHIL COLLINS lovers. If you are both, then you have finally found your Holy Grail, but I, as a common or garden Phil fan, am bitterly disappointed that I have bought this album.

Phil Collins' status as one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the '80s and beyond was probably as much a surprise to him as it was to many others. Balding and diminutive, the Genesis drummer-turned-vocalist was almost 30 years old when his first solo single, "In the Air Tonight," became a number two hit in his native U.K. (the song was a Top 20 hit in the U.S.). Between 1984 and 1990, Collins had a string of 13 straight U.S. Top Ten hits. Long before any of that happened,...
