Ah yes, Nicky's alter-ego, Donkey-Man, has finally made his way onto a single cover. It took quite a while, considering Donkey-Man's relative fame amongst the Westlife fan base, and didn't hurt his popularity in the slightest. Notice Donkey-Man is looking right at Shane while he displays his unique 'powers'. Is touching him, even. Slash fans take note!
Otherwise, it's one of those single covers that screams "friendship!" right in your ear. Mark's draped all over Nicky, while Nicky and Shane eye each other up. Meanwhile, Bryan and Kian discuss something very important. Judging from the way Kian's gesturing, it's about the size of Donkey-Man's... ahem... asset.
On a personal note, Unbreakable is the culprit of all my obsession. I was just swanning along, one of those pop kids who quite liked Backstreet Boys and Blue, and then suddenly... *WHOOMPH!* Unbreakable jumps out from a So Fresh CD, grabs me in its taloned grip and drags me into full-on Westlife fan-ship. Three weeks later I had all the albums. It has a special place in my heart.
The B-side, Never Knew I Was Losing You, is completely wonderful, a gorgeous little melody-driven piece of perfection, written by all the Westlife lads together, and featuring every voice in perfect synchronicity and harmony.
Donkey-Man, especially, sounds beautiful.
