Going Somewhere is the sixth solo album from Men at Work's Colin Hay, but one of the few available in the US. First available on MP3.com, then sold through Hay's web site, Going Somewhere is currently distributed by MusicBlitz and is availble on the web. The acoustic album is filled with good songs, including two from previous Hay albums. "Looking for Jack" was the title track from Colin James Hay's debut solo album. "Wafaring Sons" was also a title track, in this case from his commercially unsuccessful 1990 album. The song "Waiting ror My Real Life to Begin" was used by the TV show Judging Amy in 2001. Going Somewhere is actually the followup to Hay's 1992 acoustic album Peaks and Valleys and is intended to sound like his live solo shows. ~ JT Griffith
Q (6/01, p.109) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...13 unfussy songs for fortysomethings....played entirely solo on acoustic guitar but with enough musical color to work..."
Dirty Linen (pp.90-91) - "The Scottish-born Hay, transplanted to Australia, keeps his unique voice that is chipper on the surface but touched by an endearingly na‹ve melancholy."
Mojo (Publisher) (5/01, p.103) - "...There are no [Men At Work] hits, but the collection is packed with gems from Hay's solo catalogue....Intoxicating stuff."
