Album Review

Westlife's ninth album, Where We Are, follows a yearlong sabbatical that the bandmembers took after celebrating their tenth anniversary with the concert video 10 Years of Westlife — Live at Croke Park Stadium (2008). Where We Are was billed as a slight change in direction by the boy band, whose formula for chart-topping success had become overly predictable in recent years. In search of a fresh approach, they worked with a lot of American songwriters and producers, most notably Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, who co-wrote and produced two of the album highlights, "Shadows" and "Where We Are." They also worked extensively with the veteran American R&B hitmakers Louis Biancaniello and Sam Watters, who are credited with three songs ("How to Break a Heart," "Leaving," "Sound of a Broken Heart"). Another album highlight, "The Difference," comes courtesy of Anne Preven and Scott Cutler, formerly of the Los Angeles alternative rock band Ednaswap, whose song "Torn" was an international smash hit for Natalie Imbruglia in 1997. Moreover, the album's lead single, "What About Now," is a cover version of a hit single by American Idol winner Daughtry that was co-written by Evanescence bandmembers Ben Moody and David Hodges. Despite all of this American input, Where We Are sounds like any other Westlife album, in part because it's such an assembly-line effort (by one count there are 29 different songwriters and 17 different producers credited on the 13 songs). As always, the album is comprised of power ballads about love and heartbreak with soaring string arrangements and earnest vocal performances by the bandmembers. Fortunately, there are many first-rate songs here — more or less the entire first half of the album — and the production is polished to perfection. Fans content with more of the same should find plenty to enjoy on Where We Are, another in a long line of Westlife albums sure to generate one smash hit after another.

Customer Reviews

Back to their Best!!

Westlife have come back stronger than ever with this album. There are typical Westlife-sounding ballad tracks as well as the ones that show the new direction they're headed towards. This album has everything you could want from Westlife, with great vocals from all four of them but particularly from Shane and Mark. If their first single, What About Now, was anything to go by, then this album and any singles they take from it, should be a huge hit especially with their loyal fans like me.
My favourite tracks from this album, despite it only being released an hour ago, have to be "Shadows, No More Heroes, The Difference and Where We Are"...but honestly every single track on this album (all, but What About Now, are orginal songs) is amazing, and it just goes to show just how talented these four guys really are and why, after 11 years, they still remain the best boyband (turned man-band)/pop-band around today.
Whether you are an eternally loyal Westlife fan or not, this album is a must-buy! Filled with hits and great tracks, its one to keep in your collection!! And Shane, Nicky, Mark and Kian, I have to give it to you...you guys truly are amazing - the best in the business!

Wow

Love this album, a new slightly more modern sound but with the clasic westlife ballads still intact.

A must buy :)

Their best yet. :D

This album is one of Westlife's best albums in years.
Changed the style a little bit. Freshier sound. Amazing vocals!
I actually cried listening to this album.
There some amazing songs in it.
