Coast to Coast is the second studio album by Irish boy band Westlife. It was released on 6 November 2000 by RCA Records. Five hit singles were released from the album: "Against All Odds", "My Love", "What Makes a Man", "I Lay My Love on You" and "When You're Looking Like That". The album was a commercial success in both Ireland and the United Kingdom, selling 1.8 million copies in Britain alone. The album was the third-best selling of 2000 in Britain. In January 2005, the album was re-issued in a two-in-one box set compilation with the group's third album, World of our Own. A video album, entitled Coast to Coast - Up Close and Personal, was released on 27 November 2000. It peaked at number one on the UK Visual Chart.

Critical reception[edit]

Coast to Coast received predominantly negative reviews from music critics. Andrew Lynch from Entertainment.ie gave the album one out of five stars, calling it "just another cynical collection of formulaic pop".[1] However, the album was reviewed more positively at AllMusic and Rovi, who both gave the album two and half stars, comparing Westlife to other boy bands such as Take That and Boyzone.[2]

Commercial performance[edit]

Coast to Coast entered the UK Albums Chart at number one, with 234,767 copies sold in its first week, making it Westlife's fastest selling album to date.[when?][3] The album remained at number one for only one week, being replaced by The Beatles' compilation album 1. In April 2011, the album was certified six times Platinum by the British Phonographic Industry for shipments of nearly two million copies in the United Kingdom.[4] Up to November 2011, the album had sold 1,685,971 copies in the United Kingdom, becoming Westlife's biggest-selling studio album there.[5] A gold sales award disc was issued to the band to commemorate sales in excess of 115,000 copies sold in Mexico.[6] The album was also certified Gold in Brazil by ABPD, for sales of over 100,000 copies.[7]
