Sweet and Beautiful!,
This review is from: Home for Christmas (Audio CD)
Ever since she was on BGT, I have found Susan Boyle an amazing singer - and this album perfectly suits her voice and is very christmassy and warming. The selection of songs are perfect, and perfectly suit her tone and style of singing - I predict that this may be a classic Christmas album.
I do have a few personal favourites: When a child is born, a duet with Johnny Mathis is amazing. The song just makes you tingle, and works so well on so many emotional levels. 'Have Yourself a very merry little Christmas' is my favourite of the entire album. So many different artists have covered this song, but Susan Boyle really does bring something new to it - her individuality shines through. When I first heard this track it gave me goosebumps; and for me this is a sign of a really good single!
Overall, I think Susan Boyle has really pulled of the Christmas Albums. Many singers fall in to the pitfalls of being generic, dull or inspiring with Xmas albums; but Boyle has completely avoided this. This album can be summed up in one word: perfection!
