5.0 out of 5 stars GORGEOUS
Such a gorgeous album, each track shows off Louise's voice in a different way. There isn't one track I wouldn't have on the album, I was going to try and choose a favourite but I would have ended up just listing them all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Perfection!!, 7 May 2012
This review is from: Here Comes The Sun (Audio CD)
Louise Dearman's 'Here Comes The Sun' is an exquisitely crafted album that in my humble opinion has been executed with such precision & quality that I am left literally speechless after each listen. There is a diverse range of songs, from different era's and I genuinely believe there is something on this album for everyone. Some might have questioned the decision to make an album of covers but as Louise has stated on numerous occasions, being so well known in the realm of musical theatre, it would stand to reason that some of her fans might have found the jump straight into mainstream/original music to be to vast, so she's taken 'Here Comes The Sun' as her opportunity to enlighten the skeptics and her fans with an array of some of her favorites and the great classics of our time. The title track 'Here Comes The Sun' is a delightfully fresh interpretation of one of the greats, when first hearing this would be the title track, I didn't know what to expect and have been delightfully impressed by the arrangement. It does seem a shame that Marks & Spencers weren't informed of her rendition before creating their latest ad campaign. 'Squander' has been hotly anticipated by fans since Louise debuted it live on tour with Lee Mead, having witnessed it first hand I knew the album version would be a stand out. It is one of the lesser known tracks on the album, but with those pipes behind it, its going straight to the top. It's a beautifully tragic song that just hits you in the chest anyway, but with Louise putting all her heart & soul into it, it soars to new heights as she belts it out of the Westend & on to the top of the charts (just my prediction for the future). One of the definite stands out of Dearman's treasury is the duet with Steve Balsamo 'Time After Time.' The collaboration of these two voices is a touch of pure magic, as their stunning tones unite to create a work of art. The arrangement is utter perfection and I find myself going straight to this song when I require my daily fix of Dearman's voice.

The next track is one possibly more well known by the younger generation of listeners, that has become a classic in this decade & is one of my favourite songs of all time, so to discover it's inclusion on Louise's album was a win for me. What stands out on this track is Dearman's respect for the song and it's original artist Sara Bareilles, whilst still being able to take it to new heights and stamp her mark on it. Her tender interpretation paints an emotional picture and I would dare anyone listening to try and not reach for the Klennex. 'See The Day' is a mini masterpiece in and of itself, from beginning to end it just keeps building throughout to a breathtaking conclusion, leaving me reaching for the repeat button each and every time. The orchestration is passionate where it needs to be and eases off to a flawless balance to allow Dearman's vocal to shine through in the verses. Every album needs it's 'Little Bird' to take flight and rouse people to their feet, and this track does just that, you can't help but add a little spring in your step when listening to this electrifying anthem. 'This House' was the only track I was unfamiliar with but have promptly acquainted myself with its sheer brilliance. It is a track that shows the full spectrum of Louise's vocal prowess. Dearman's rendition of 'Uninvited' is seductively bewitching. There is something so mysterious about this track, once again the team creating this masterpiece have out done themselves with this one, as all the pieces of this puzzle fit together in such an immaculate way. Personally music needs to make me feel something if it is really to make an impact and that is exactly what Louise does with 'One Day I'll Fly Away' the intensity of this track has such an allure about it, drawing you in from the first note and keeping a tight grasp on your heart & soul as you are once again taken on an awe-inspiring journey through the song. It is one of those songs that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and take note and Louise once again proves why she is a house hold name in the Westend. 'Kissing You' is a fitting finale to this heavenly album. It is another song that is rather iconic in it's own right, most notably from it's emotionally charged inclusion in the movie 'Romeo & Juliet.' Every facet of this song is impeccably delivered, the production is absolutely flawless and takes the song to a luxurious & haunting new level, especially when the gospel choir come in and complement all other elements of this beautiful song. To conclude, Louise Dearmans 'Here Comes The Sun' is an album that is perfectly crafted by Big Hand Records to showcase the harmonious mastery or Tour de Force that is Louise Dearman. I defy anyone to listen to this album in it's entirety and not be drawn in by the sultry tones of Dearman. I would also advise the 'Diva's' of the world to make room in their ranks, as Louise is marking out a path to join them at the top. Well what are you waiting for? Sine qua non, this album is a necessity for your music collection. While you buy it, I shall close my eyes and let this album take me on another journey.
