Although i am not an X Factor Fan, Mary Byrne deserves a chance as she did have a very Strong Female Vocal and could carry a song.
This Album is a Surprise and although they are a Mainly Cover Versions i think she does a Very Good Job.
The Problem with doing a Cover Version Album is that Stars from Soaps or TV Actors do this every Christmas Time and they all end up in The Bargain Bucket at HMV.
I would HATE!! to see this Happen to Mary as i think given some New Material or a New Songwriting Team with maybe some Help and Guidance from those who could Help such as Tom Jones,Englebert Humperdinck, Elkie Brooks or Barbra Dixon who are in her the Market she is Targeting i think could go a Very Long Way.
If she chooses the Cover Version Market it is a Very Slippery Slope into Obscurity and i think She Deserves a Lot Better as she has a Voice that is Excellent.
