Album Review

Striking while the iron was still relatively lukewarm, if not actually hot, came the second album from X Factor finalist (and second season runner-up) Andy Abraham, his second release during 2006. This time, having exhausted the songs he had sung on the show, he came up with new material (for him), 13 tracks that could easily have been sung by him on the show instead of the ones that were chosen and had already been featured on his debut album.

The one new track was the final song, "December Brings Me Back to You," written by Abraham along with Cliff Masterson, Mark Reid, and Michael Underwood, a sentimental Christmas ballad, released in time for the holiday market, but with X Factor series three already capturing the same audience, neither the single nor its parent album could break into the Top Ten. [The CD was also released with a bonus track.]
