Amazing. Truly.

This CD brings tears to my eyes. In fact, as my husband was listening to Wild Horses, *he* got choked up. I honestly can say I can't remember a CD ever having this much emotional and (dare I say it?) spiritual power.

The recording is so clear, Susan's voice is so pure. She not only hits notes dead on, but toggles and tweaks them in a jaw-dropping way.

When my husband and I were talking about Susan Boyle's new CD, we both came to the conclusion that her voice and talent is almost if it were an angel singing.

If you like what you here in the Amazon samples and you've liked what you've seen on YouTube or TV, you will absolutely love I Dreamed a Dream.

During Britain's Got Talent, Susan told the panel that she aspired to be like Eileen Page. Well, I'm here to tell you that she sounds BETTER than Eileen Page (honestly).

If you buy one CD this holiday season, make it this one. In fact, buy it for those you love as a gift, too. It's affordable and, in my opinion, worth much more than the price tag here at

What a blessing you are, Susan!

Enjoy Amazonians. I know we are.

Good but not dynamic as Il Divo. I'd classify it as easy listening. No ooh factor.

Susan Boyle's is an inspiring modern Cinderella story. It reminds us that anybody has a chance if only you are willing, has enough courage, and the right amount hunger to get what you dreamed of. Overall, this is a monster debut from the woman who Simon Cowell was almost ready to dished out when he saw her walking toward the center of the stage. Everybody thought she was joking. But what happened that night was the biggest surprised of all. Susan Boyle brought the house down. Everyone was shocked …

Want to give someone a very nice Christmas gift? Get this CD. Susan understands, as few--very few--young artists do, that the voice is an instrument. Her heart and soul are in these songs, and I love all of them, especially Wild Horses. There's so much emotion there, it's just wrenchingly, hauntingly beautiful. A great collection of tunes from a great lady who deserves all good things.

Susan Boyle's 'I Dreamed a Dream' is a good album. At first glance, it's a bit disconcerting because many of the tracks reveal that instead of taking on original material, Boyle is set to cover some standards from other artists (with the exception of a few tracks). Yet, after listening, you're able to see that Boyle actually adds her own touch and personality to a lot of the tracks. In other words, unlike so many artists who are releasing cover albums, these songs have been re-arranged and mixed …

About this topic


January 21st 2009 is not a date that Susan Boyle is ever likely to forget. ‘I will never forget it,’ she clarifies, in her unmistakeably Celtic brogue. It was the day that the shy, devout 48 year old stepped onto the stage of the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow for an audition on Britain’s Got Talent. Or to put it another way, the day her world turned 360 degrees on its head. In front of the three-strong panel of judges charged with divining which of this year’s British hopefuls really did have talent, the singing voice of Susan Boyle turned out to be a watershed moment neither she nor anyone involved in the show could possibly have foreseen. It is now both her and the show’s defining moment.

In her own haphazard fashion, during three and a half minutes of television airtime, later aired to slack-jawed intakes of breath in May of this year, Susan Boyle fashioned a new kind of fame. She elicited a moment of pure, molten zeitgeist. She broke every rule of the talent show book and tore up a considerable number of the pages of popular music marketing into the bargain. She symbolized an astonishing variety of the little-people’s revenge, quite by accident. Ms Boyle describes her own astonishing 2009 in refreshingly frank and simple terms. ‘All I did was to apply for a talent show. I was lucky enough to be chosen. That’s it in a nutshell.’ But something deeper was going on in the collective public ...
