This is a seriously good album from a lady with loads of vocal talent - this is going to be a global smash hit. Susan's performances are just sublime and the arrangements are perfect. 'Wild Horses' is simply wonderful, but there is much more. Susan has a great range, but her smoky, bluesy lower register comes to the fore here ('Cry Me River' is superb). 'How Great Thou Art' has a purity that Enya would be proud of. The joy goes on - there is not a duff track on this album. I predict it will go straight to No. 1 in the charts on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond. A MUST buy (and I really mean that!)

Stop Press (14 Dec): Susan achieved the No. 1 slot in Britain and the USA with record sales of her album.

I love this album, but it is easy to understand why some people hate it. The hype surrounding Susan Boyle meant that a lot of people heard her music who just aren't into this kind of music. At the time, a lot of people thought that Susan would be a one-album wonder, but this has proved to be not so. As a huge fan of Christmas music, I'm looking forward to her follow-up album. Wild horses made the top ten in the UK singles chart and nearly made the top ten in Ireland, but elsewhere it was only a minor hit. The title track was also released as a single in various countries, but as far as I know, it wasn't a huge hit anywhere. However, the album sold millions so the comparative failure of the singles didn't matter.

This set opens with Wild horses, a slowed-down re-interpretation of a Rolling Stones song. I read somewhere that another singer has previously re-interpreted this song in exactly this way, but I haven't heard that version although I am of course familiar with the original. I also suspect that the vast majority of people have not heard this interpretation of Wild horses by anybody else. It works brilliantly, but it's worth noting that Petula Clark (I want to hold your hand - the Beatles), Jackie Trent (It's not unusual - Tom Jones) and Alison Krauss (Baby now that I've found you - Foundations) are among the many singers who have taken sixties pop classics and completely re-interpreted them by slowing them right down. All of those versions are brilliant too, yet none of them take anything away from the originals. Truly great songs can be interpreted in different ways and still sound great.

The only original song here, Who I was born to be, although not written by Susan, appears to be inspired by her story.

I have had the CD on order for many months and two days ago it arrived. With anticipation I slipped it into the car stereo system and waited. It seemed to take forever to load but it was in fact a few seconds. Cue music!
With a great deal of surprise I listened to the first CD release from the 'Britain's Got Talent' Superstar Susan Boyle. I had been expecting something remarkable, and I was not disappointed as she started to sing 'Wild Horses'.

As you listen to the songs, you could be forgiven for thinking she is a long established professional like Lena Horne or Shirley Bassey. To think that this very ordinary (to some people a bit quirky) Scottish spinster of 48 who, according to the Press couldn't handle the pressure, has triumphed over her critics once again.
It was no great surprise to me that this first album has been met with a storm of praise from her fans, and has set records for first day and first week sales.
Looking at the effect the 'Hollywood' treatment has had on her appearance on the album sleeve photo's, I was immediately happy for her. Now, after a hairdo, a bit of makeup and a lovely dress, she looks every inch a star.
When I looked at the song list I was a little surprised at some of the songs included. In particular, I thought at first the inclusion of 'Daydream Believer', an uptempo pop song from The Monkees (1967) may have been a mistake. I could not imagine Susan's voice being able to do it justice as a 'Pop' song. Thankfully when it started to play I realised I should not have worried. With a skillful musical arrangment, the song was delivered in a style that suited her voice, and she certainly didn't let anyone down.

I was very apprehensive about her album as i thought they have her sing pap and we'd never hear from the dear lady again! However it's a little twee in places but I think the album's worth buying just for her version of "Cry Me a River' whoever selected that song was a genius! each time i hear it I go nah it's not her. However "Up to the Mountain" will have grown men crying as it's just so moving. Not all of the songs are for me but it's far better than Leona Lewis's debut album which I found hard to listen to despite her having a great song. "Amazing Grace" is done quite well as you can hear her scottish twang coming thru in the song perfect! I'd love to have heard a couple of slightly uptempo tracks as I think she'd love to do a big band number. " Who was I born to be" grows on me and I'm glad they let you hear her voice and not drown it out with the instrumentation. "Proud" I thought it was Eva Cassidy singing it or one of those US country singers. She's not the worlds best singers but she sings very well within her range but this might sound a bit far fetched but there's something quite spiritual about her voice that sort of makes your stomach get butterflies. I know this will sell by the truckload and I wish the lady the very best for the future. It's a tremendous debut album better than some of the tosh Cowell and co have rushed out. Like I said the album will make a grown man cry!!

As for those who gave it 1star it just shows how small-minded and poisonous you really are oh please keep those snakes ( the UK press) well away from her.
