5.0 out of 5 stars Nolan's debut hits the right note., 12 July 2005
This review is from: All By Myself (Audio CD)
Bernie Nolan's debut was never going to be easy. First she had to throw off any links with her sister's act, secondly she would be competing against a load of 20 somethings for chart success. Vocally there is little, if anything, that matches her. Every single note is nailed to perfection. Ms Nolan says the album was recorded for her so it's success, whilst welcomed, was not the number one priority. Therefore she was self indulgant in the tracks she chose, the cover shot, make up and production. What is there then is a collection of her favourite songs. So whilst those songs are either loved by me or not loved by me, at least one can revel in the vocal talents of this Nolan. Particular highlights for me were "Even Now" The title track "All By Myself" and a song Bernie has had the chance to showcase on television a few times "Stop" She has managed to make that particular song sound very much her own. It would be more difficult, perhaps, making an album of new songs, and I hope that would be the next step for Bernie, for as much as I like covers, they are seldom remembered. So my one critisism is the lack of new songs - That said, the 12 songs on this album are delivered with competence,style and skill, what would one expect from a lady who has been singing professionally since she was two years old. You won't be disappointed with your purchase and you will be thrilled with it if power ballads are your thing.
