BBC Review

If you're into power ballads and a fan of musicals, this is the ultimate album for you. Idina Menzel found fame in magical musical Wicked on Broadway, then in London, and now she's following in the footsteps of Laura Michelle Kelly (who starred in Mary Poppins) and releasing an album of pop music. I Stand is full of all-empowering, sing-along-in-the-car, Tina Arena-esque big songs that sound like they've been written by Tim Rice/Andrew Lloyd-Webber and produced by Timbaland. Idina's got a big voice and it's easy to listen to - but you can hear the stage style in it - less raw emotion and more acting in the lyrics and delivery. However, that's not to say it's not enjoyable.

Defying Gravity - Idina's first single, a pop version of the pivotal song in Wicked - shows off her great range and has those quirky, dramatic note sequences that break up a big ballad into something more palatable. The title track is a mellow track, with a nice hint of country, which sets the tone for the rest of the album. But this is the biggest flaw - the record is not very varied. However, if you you dig Idina's style and voice, then that's fine - more of the same just keeps coming and will keep you happy until the last note. If you're waiting for something a bit different, you'll be disappointed. Having said that, the last track on the album is a Craig C. Master mix of Gorgeous, which sounds like something from a 90s aerobic class - an upbeat dance track that is a bit of a strange ending to an otherwise coherent album.

You definitely get a sense of who Idina is on the album - someone who's loved and lost and who has gained power from that - and is obviously a very accomplished singer with a powerful voice. But, as stated, if you fancy an album of power ballads, this should be on your Christmas list, and I'm sure we'll hear Idina-attempts in next year's X Factor auditions! --Lizzie Ennever

I have listened to this CD over and over again...Idina Menzel has such an amazing voice and vocal range and the whole album really shows this. I waited for this album to come out in the UK for soooo long! I saw her perform in the I Stand tour in Florida, where she sang her heart out, and she was absolutely fantastic, and the album reflects that.
My favourite songs are 'Brave' and 'My Own Worst Enemy' both of which are beautiful, powerful ballads, sang amazingly. The copy I have also has the single version of 'Defying Gravity' which is great, and an added bonus. I'm not as keen on the song 'God Give Me Strength' which is also a UK bonus track, but even that is a very good song.
The lyrics really speak to me, and all of the songs are beautifully written and wonderfully sung by a Broadway star who is also a worthy recording artist. I hope she brings out more music in the UK!

The whole album really shows Idina's talent. I bought it solely because I love her in Wicked but she is so much more than one role! The emotions she manages to portray in all of her songs are really tear-provoking. There is a diversity of song-style; the upbeat and the slow ballad-esque. I would recommend this to all- even if somehow you managed not to like her in Wicked or Rent you will love her in this!
She is amazing!

I first discovered Idina through the musicals Wicked and Rent and completely fell in love with her, so I was obviously going to get my hands on a copy of her CD! And in no way was I disappointed. Each song is so beautiful and heartfelt, and coupling this with her amazing voice makes 'I Stand' the perfect album, in my opinion. The songs really connect with me, aided by the raw emotion Idina puts into her singing. I can't stop listening to it!

Songs to listen out for are Brave, Gorgeous, Don't Let Me Down and My Own Worst Enemy. And I Feel Everything. And I Stand. And her album version of the spectacular showtune Defying Gravity. Ok, so pretty much all of them!

This album has only further consolidated her as my ultimate role model, proving herself as a recording artist, actress, and Broadway sensation, and I would throughly recommend this to anyone who's already fallen under her spell.

This album is absolutely amazing. Idina Menzel has such talent that not many artists can bring to the table. Her voice and range just blows you away. This album is about the challenges she has faced through life, being brave and most importantly, standing up for yourself. This album has helped me sooo much I really don't know what I'd do without Idina Menzel. I've been a massive fan of her and her talent since October 2007. Its for any huge fan, even if your a newbie ;) Buy this album, you won't regret it!

This album is absolutely fantastic, no matter how much you pay for it (£14.99 was what I paid). It has some powerful ballads (Brave) and some more upbeat songs (Gorgeous), and overall it sends out an amazing message, and it is Brilliant. Her voice is extremely strong, and I was not disappointed by this album at all. :)

Often when a Broadway star attempts to break out of the genre that has made them famous the results can be less than successful but that is far from the case here. That Idina can sing is beyond doubt however what stands out here is not only that glorious instrument but also the quality of her writing. The songs, co written with Glen Ballard, leap out of the speakers full of ideas and hooks that draw you back to them time and again. I'm particularly drawn to Gorgeous and Brave along with the title track. Yes the album does include the signature song, Defying Gravity from Wicked, a show I really enjoyed but for me it could have been left off. It's a great song but has been attached here purely as a marketing tool. I can understand why that was done but with such strong original material it was just not needed.

As a lover of Rock music I enjoy hearing a good female singer belting out power songs like the ones on this album. It's always a good sign when some songs stand out from the first listen. In this album's case they are I Stand, Gorgeous, Don't Let Me Down, and My Own Worst Enemy.

The CD contains a booklet with the lyrics in it, but you don't really need it - possibly because of Idina's background in musical theatre, where the audience needs to hear every word to follow the story, you can hear every word Idina sings perfectly clearly, no matter how hard she's belting out the vocals.

My CD (which does not have the bonus tracks others refer to) is only 38 minutes and 35 seconds long, but with music of this quality even that doesn't merit the deduction of a star.
