Album Review

There is a bit of everything in this album, a bit of Coldplay, a bit of Radiohead, and a bit of Robbie Williams. The opening track, "All She Wrote" has the vocal quality of a Noel Gallagher snarl and there is even a riff copied (presumably unintentionally) from Sgt. Pepper's on the track "Guilty Pleasure" which, because the kitchen sink was thrown in, is reminiscent of the New Kids on the Block attempt at sophistication on their track "Tonight." This isn't Ross Copperman's debut, that being an album called Believe, the title track of which was reprised on this album with its intro from a classical string quartet. Believe was released on an independent label three years previously, and with no publicity at all it sank without a trace. With the might of major record company BMG behind this release, Welcome to Reality also sank with very few people getting to hear it, remaining on the charts for just one week at number 59. "All She Wrote" just scraped into the singles Top 40 and should have brought about a wider audience, but BMG appeared to lose interest, the company having much greater and more instant success with their reality TV produced singers than with a genuine rock singer/songwriter, especially one who sounded so much like many other major stars.

Customer Reviews

Ross Copperman, number 1 all the way!

just thought id let anyone who hasnt bought the album yet and are undecided that it is amazing!, i thought that the songs couldnt beat all she wrote but how wrong could i be. i cant pick a favourite because they all are so great. i love listening to it when im thinking because the lyrics are so strong and meaningful not sounding soppy here haha. the bonus track To be is one of the best on the album along with Guilty Pleasure, As i choke and of course All She Wrote. Basically all the songs are great and definately worth the money :] now we need to help to get to number 1 with this outstanding peace of work louise xxx

great album a must for your collection

This album is great just love found you and guilty pleasure!! highly recormended

Element of Surprise

I saw that Ross Copperman was getting a lot of attention, but thought we were walking down the same old road as every other guy using their own name that has released an album in the past 2 years with chart success. So it my relief I was pleasantly surprised when I played back this album - so many musical styles each performed with the same degree of style and ability. Similar sound on a variety of tracks as Gavin DeGraw and Switchfoot.
