This would have been complete CD with the song Learning To Live Without Your Love (duet with O'chi Brown)

Stock, Atiken & Waterman prodigé Rick Astley ceated an instant bubble-gum pop sound that not many had done in the 80's. Unfortunately, his polished vocals never got the credit he deserved. To many, Rick Astley was simply a way for the SAW trio to make money. To think this is to ignore the fact that he is in fact a talented signer.
No review of this album can be complete without the acknowledgement that at the time, Rick Astley was incredibly popular. His addictive "Never Gonna Give You Up" skyrocketed to Number 1 in March 1988. Soon followed mammoth club hits "Whenever You Need Somebody" and "Together Forever". Mindless and fun.

Unfortunately at the time of release, Rick Astley was tagged as a mimed singer, due to the attachment to Stock Aiken and Waterman.
From the first day of this albums release, I always believed that this performer had talent. He lived up to his true standard, when he performed live in London in 1991, promoting his then album "Free"
When ever you need somebody was another great synth-pop experience. The album kicks in immediately with his biggest hit "Never gonna give you up", and follows through nicely with more great tracks. Other brilliant cuts from this album include "Whenever you need somebody", "Together forever", "It would take a strong, strong man", "Don't say good-bye girl", "No more looking for love", "You move me", and the old Nat King Cole hit "When I fall in love". The best version I've ever heard.
I don't care what others think, this guy's got true talent.

rick astley is one of the most underrated and under appreciated singers out there,he's singing is better than 75 % of the artists of today,with such a fantastic voice it makes me wonder why this guy never made it big in the music business.i must admit the only reason i bought this cd was for the only two songs i heard on this cd before i bought it,the songs are never gonna give you up and together forever which are both classic tunes but by no means the only good tracks off this cd.my favorite tracks off this cd are the love has gone,when i fall in love and my personal favorite slipping away.the only reason i did'nt give this cd a five star rating is because of the two weaker tracks you move me and don't say goodbye but astley's vocals are still beautiful on these two tracks.if you are looking for an album with nice,relaxing music with beautiful meaningful lyrics that you can relate too ,then this is the album for you.

Rick Astley was yet another client of the 1980's Stock-Aitken-Waterman bubblegum pop hit machine like Kylie Minogue and Bananarama. His debut, Whenever You Need Somebody, yielded three hit singles including "Never Gonna Give You Up" and its equally infectious twin "Together Forever." But despite their sound, Astley was a talented vocalist from the start. Imagine Tear For Fears's Roland Orzabal lightening up but losing the falsetto-that's Rick Astley.
That S-A-W disco sound meshed with the strings-synthesizer really enhanced Astley in his #1 hit single "Never Gonna Give You Up." It sounds like a real utopian promise for girls: "Never gonna give you up/never gonna tell a lie/never gonna break your heart and desert you." Ditto "Together Forever", which despite sounding so much like the previous song, deserves special mention of its own. Anyone wanting an upbeat wedding song should play this: "Together forever and never to pass/Together forever with two/And don't you know I would move heaven and earth/to be together forever with you." Awwwwww, isn't that sweet?
The engaging title track is a cousin of Bananarama's "I Heard A Rumour," though without the splashy oomph of the trio. The third single, "It Would Take A Strong Strong Man" veers into 70's soul like Aaron Neville or Barry White. How does he feel about this woman? Take the words of the title, then add "to ever let you go."
If the couple wed to "Together Forever" ended up on the skids, they could play "The Love Has Gone" in the divorce lawyer's office. Despite the usual backbeat, Rick displays a slightly subdued tone and small wonder. He also displays a unique pinched sound at a lower register.

I remember when I saw my first Astley video, I was blown away that such a soulful baritone could come from a red-headed lad from the British Isles. This, his first album, was on my must-have list.
Almost two decades later, fond memories flood the mind as I listen to the selections that were to be his hits: the title cut, "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Together Forever", and "Don't Say Goodbye". However, in hindsight, I think the singer was superior to the standard dance pop with which he was saddled.
He does rise to the occasion with a surprisingly good remake of the Nat King Cole classic "When I Fall in Love". This cut rounds out the album and suggests that Astley should have considered more songs of this caliber that may have lengthened his "shelf life".
