Brian McFadden & Delta Goodrem
Released: 31st January 2005.
After the disappointing performance of her lead-off single "Out Of The Blue", Australian export Delta Goodrem teams up with former Westlife member Brian McFadden on his strongest performance outside the boy band he helped build. The two of them have an incredible chemistry on this track, which has supposedly spilled into real life. It generates a winning combination that will result in another hit for them both.
Two rather talked about artists at the moment collaborate with, you guessed it, a ballad. You would have thought judging by Delta's talents, and to an extent Brian's, they both could have created an atmospheric, haunting and beautiful number. Instead, they've come up with this drivel. "Almost Here" is a pathetic, mind-numbingly boring song which causes the vomit level to rise (just watch the video for proof). It's not brutally unlistenable by any means - just nothing to separate it from any other ballad we've heard before, and therefore it's hugely disappointing. Try elsewhere, eh Delta?
