Cliff Richard - Real As I Wanna Be (1998) Retail CD
Rock & Roll
This album combines so many different styles while maintaining thematic unity; it is surreal soul-searching tinged with melancholy, but retaining hope and faith in love, in "miracles", in dreams and in a better future. The haunting title track portrays a man taking refuge in fantasy and in poignant memories; "Even If It Breaks My Heart" and "Climbing Up Mount Everest" bring out the heartbreak of breaking up a relationship: the former contrasts the routine meeting in a cafe to the turmoil of knowing a relationship to be over; the latter (brilliant) expresses the mammoth task of coming to termsmore… with a break-up (Cliff's impassionned cry of "You don't love me no more" wrenches at the heartstrings.) "Can't Keep This Feelin In" grips you as Cliff's voice brings out the full impact of intense passion. His stirringly powerful rendition of "Butterfly Kisses" hits JUST the right level of sentimentality and sensitively portrays a mixture of joy and sorrow. The Gospel song "Miracle" epitomizes that search for hope and guidance which is characteristic of the whole album. The final highlight is the duet with tenor Vincenzo La Scola (I don't reckon many pop stars would be able to duet with someone with such a powerful voice but this works well) which is a rousing reflection on love, life and death. It's so diverse, so modern, with faultless accompaniments and backing vocals - but what's even more amazing is that this guy was actually nearly sixty when he recorded this and he pranced about singing Rock & Roll songs like "Move It" and "Living Doll" in the FIFTIES. Anyone who thinks Cliff is fuddy-duddy or uncool should listen to this and, if no-one told them who was singing it, they would suppose it to be the very best of modern sophisticated pop music. And, incredibly, it is.One more note: to get the full impact of this, listen to it again and again!
