The Sydney Morning Herald has done a review of Bobby Flynn's first album, Out Front. Bobby a popular contestant in the 2006 Australian Idol series, has shown "real musicians" can use Australian Idol as a vehicle to musical credibility.
He would be pleased with the review which concludes with "He's more comfortable with his own songs, which toy with vulnerability without completely opening up. That, presumably, will come with experience and confidence. For the moment, he's a very interesting young talent who may yet grow into something special. Not an Idol then"
