— David Benedict, The Observer 2002.
“John Barr’s voice rings with thrillingly relaxed confidence.”
— Chris Goepfert – Cabaret Scenes 2002.
“John’s voice is better than ever, very relaxed and at ease with the material.”
— Jeff Rossen – July 2002 – Cabaret Scenes.
“There’s a naturalness in Barr’s vocals that makes one almost feel as though he’s talking to you… a warmly molded selection of songs…The decision to use only piano and guitar for “Anything Can Happen” gives the set an intimate atmosphere, heightening Barr’s rich baritone. Barr’s musicians are flawless, as are the dazzling arrangements.”
— Mark Shenton – July 2002 (Theatre critic for BBC LONDON and the SUNDAY EXPRESS).
“John Barr’s latest album, Anything Can Happen, is his best yet, and is a testament to his growing maturity as an artist. He offers Rodgers and Hammerstein side-by-side with Stephen Schwartz and John Bucchino, Janis Ian beside Neil Sedaka, and Bernstein next to Bacharach. Barr’s musical choices are always refreshing, and his rich tenor renderings of them gorgeously judged.”
— Michael Darvell – July 10th 2002 — What's On in London.
“You’ll probably not find a better version of “What Kind of Fool Am I?” this side of Anthony Newley himself … among other songs in a wide-ranging choice of material that shows off the voice and inherent acting ability of Mr.Barr very well indeed.”
