TOP 100 REVIEWERon 20 February 2016
INTRODUCTION:

Sam Bailey (born 29 June 1977) is an English singer, known for winning the tenth series of The X Factor in 2013. Following her win, her debut single, a cover of Demi Lovato's "Skyscraper", was released on 16 December 2013, achieving the Christmas number one on 22 December 2013. She was the first X Factor winner in three years to gain the Christmas number one spot. (Trivia: last time was Matt Cardle’s When We Collide in 2010)

On 24 February 2014, Bailey supported Beyoncé on one of the dates of her UK leg of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, as well as performing on The X Factor Live Tour. Her debut album The Power of Love was released on 24 March 2014 and debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, the last time being Alexandra Burke topped the chart with her debut album Overcome in October 2009. In support of the album, Bailey will go on her first ever headline tour in January and February 2015.

She is happily married to Craig, with two lovely children, Brooke and Tommy.

CONTENTS:

I have compiled a song listing (with chart position & year, plus personal comments), which is as follows:

01 The Power Of Love*performed live on he 19th National Television Awards
02 From This Moment On
03 There You’ll Be
04 And I’m Telling You (duet with Nicole Scherzinger)*originally performed in the X Factor Final.
05 Compass
06 Lord Is It Mine
07 Get There
08 Treasure
09 Ain’t No Mountain High Enough (duet with Michael Bolton)*performed live on he 19th National Television Awards
10 Superwoman
11 Skyscraper (UK 1/2013; SCOTLAND 1/2013; IRELAND 1/2013)

POSITIVE POINTS:

1 This is a very powerful album with 11 great songs. These songs really displayed the full power of Sam’s vocal range. She could soar up in the sky with her vocal, matching that of Nicole Scherzinger, in And I Am Telling You, and also can be very tender as in her No. 1 UK hit Skyscraper.
2 The entire CD is very well remastered with clear clean crisp vocals and backing instrumental tracks. Great bass.
3 There is a 12-page booklet containing all the lyrics.

NEGATIVE POINT:

None

FINAL THOUGHTS:

This is truly an amazing debut album from Sam Bailey. All the songs are very enjoyable, especially the very catchy Skyscraper, that will grow on you, especially the haunting piano backing. The sound was superb and very well remastered. Sam Bailey has a great vocal talent, and will surely achieve greatness as time goes by, like Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke. This is a great CD and is highly recommended.

I think she has a wonderful voice but a little disappointed that all the songs seem to be a little sombre.I know she must miss her family when away from them but I would have liked to hear her sing a few more up beat numbers.I may be a little more selective for her next album.
