This review is from: Living A Dream (Audio CD)
Having recently caught Katherine performing live I was treated to some of the fabulous tracks from her new album - which by the sound of it will be breathtakingly brilliant. Following on from her previous albums Katherine has picked a fantastic choice of songs, all of which suit her style beautifully. 'Nessun Dorma' whilst familiar to millions, sounds fresh and richly enthralling. A simple yet effective version of 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' shows yet again what a great song this is, but the most interesting version of an old song on 'Living A Dream' has to be 'Ti Amero Per Sempre (I Will Always Love You)' - a track which was originally written by Dolly Parton and subsequently made famous by Whitney Houston. Katherine gives this song a whole new feel - sung in Italian this beautiful, soaring melody already feels like an old classic, with Katherine's untouchable voice used to its full effect. 'We'll Meet Again' and 'Amazing Grace' both sounded really impressive live and seem to fit in perfectly to the overall feel of the album.
After the enormous success of Premiere and Second Nature it is perhaps hard to believe, but it seems that Katherine Jenkins has surpassed her previous efforts and created her greatest album yet.
