CD arrived today (6 Nov) and I have just listened to it. Fantastic, beautiful, serene, Susan Boyle has surpassed herself. BUT I cant put down a custmer review! So unfair. Please Amazon, play ball and let people comment on this brilliant singer.

Well now, I have managed to survive after playing "The Gift" twice. There ain't going to a be a third. Subo sings well enough, but that piano player is back. You know the one, he/she learn't a few major chords at grade one and is going to struggle to make past grade two. Subo is accompanied by a not so heavenly choir who in the "mixing" has far too much volume, and drowns out the Star. A half or more of the album are renditions of hackneyed carols. Subo, this is not the sort of album for which you will be remembered. Where is the fire and the spirit of your original audition which made you an international hit overnight? I shall treasure your cover of "Cry me a River", "Wild Horses" and a couple others, but this is not for me.

Reviews can not be submited untill the albums release date has passed, this is to prevent fake reviews destroying the alum before it has been released.

I too was a little disappointed, I agree with Dengeo, all the songs allthough beautifully sang were all of the same tempo,but without the fire and spirit of her audition.
