LISTEN NOW... to a selection of tracks from the album

✭✭✭✭✭ "there is much to admire in this collection ... humour as well as pathos – all given the 5-star treatment from a plethora of talented singers ... deliciously funny numbers [and] poignant tracks. These set the tone and standard for the rest of the album. The artists bring the song writing to life and I look forward to more of the same coming in the near future ... an absolute delight and I really can’t fault it."

Nick Wakeham, Musical Theatre Review

✭✭✭✭ "Fisher is a master of melody. Every song has a much-desired hook or distinctive tune ... He flits from genre to genre showing his versatility as an artist and gives the performer a great deal of work to do in their delivery, including clear emotional arcs and personality to adopt ... Lyrical, sweeping melodies complete with sublime vocals ... brilliantly arranged ‘Heaven’s Plan’s A Mystery’ ... An excellent showcase of Fisher’s talent."

Jenny Ell, BroadwayWorldUK

✭✭✭✭✭ "Fisher is the renowned writer of some classic musical theatre numbers ... and boy this is a great album. I’ve listened to it three times now and love it more each time. My favourite is Peters’ version of ‘All Men Are Bastards’ - a really funny and observant song. I also loved ‘Nothing To Be Done’ ... there isn’t a bad song on the album, and each one really justifies multiple listening to fully appreciate both the music and the lyrics which often tell a complex and full story ... the production is excellent, with full orchestrations providing a nice rich sound to enjoy. Overall, this is a great album that will make a wonderful addition to anyone’s musical theatre collection and I definitely recommend it."

Terry Eastham, LondonTheatre1

✭✭✭✭ "a lot of fun … overall, a pleasant and charming collection."

Chris Omaweng, Last Minute Theatre Tickets

✭✭✭✭✭ "truly wonderful ... well put together and flows nicely … excellent orchestral arrangements. ‘At The Crossroads’ is beautifully sung by Beechey - thought provoking and touching to listen to. Peters’ ‘All Men Are Bastards’ is fabulously funny and really allows her to show off her vocals and comedic skills. Everyone is excellent on the album - some real powerhouse voices; with the songs that they have been gifted allowing them to show off their vocal range and for that reason, there are a few several standout stars on the album. Boys belts out ‘Heaven’s Plan’s A Mystery’ ... Samuels is exceptional as always ... Lynch smashes it out of the park - the emotion she displays is wonderful, and the tone to her voice is like silk. Definitely worth a listen!"

Emma Littler, WestEndBestFriend

9/10 "I’ve always been impressed by Fishers’ work. The talent on [the album] is pretty mind blowing … all just as excellent as you would expect … a great mixture of ballads and more thoughtful songs to balance out what Fisher is perhaps best at - comical and very clever light hearted numbers. ‘At The Crossroads’ is really poignant, and I also enjoyed ‘How Foolish Of Me’. In typical Peters casting, ‘All Men Are Bastards’ is a great number, as is the opening song ‘Alphabet Soup’, both showing Fisher’s skill in word-smithery. I really enjoyed this great mix of songs from the pen of one of our greatest up and coming composers, and another winning release from the UK’s premier label for new and exciting musical theatre talent."
