I Dreamed A Dream

About this item

Susan Boyle's grand unveiling on Britain's Got Talent was with a song from Les Miserables - the very song that lends this album its title -- and if she could become an international sensation based on a show tune standard, there's no reason for her to change her approach on her debut, since that's the sound that made her a star. Plus, a large part of Boyle's appeal is that she's a middle-aged woman recalling a bygone era when there were singers that appealed to an adult audience by offering soft, stately versions of pop hits and standards. That time was the late '60s and early '70s, and apart from a rather faithful version of Madonna's "You'll See," I Dreamed a Dream could very well have been released all those years ago, as it mixes up the show tunes, gospel, and Christmas carols with covers of Skeeter Davis' "The End of the World," the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses," and a version of "Daydream Believer" that is easily the slowest on record. Boyle sings beautifully throughout, delivering more of the same of what she did in her moment in the sun on television. Those won over by Boyle, either her voice or story, will surely be satisfied. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

After listening to Wild Horses and the samples of the other tracks on this album, it is going to be amazing. Susan's voice is versatile, sometimes soft and haunting, sometimes soaring. As the first of her albums, I expect someday this will be a collectors item. For now, it will be around 45 minutes of incredible music.

Susan has one of the best voices I have heard in a very long time. To me she is just as talented as Josh Grobin and has the potential to do just as well. If you want a wonderful listening experience you will not be disappointed. I am already anticipating her next album.

5.0 stars by lovesmaurice

To see her go from a frumpy woman to an Angel is so wonderful. The audience laughed at first but when she opened her mouth it was her who had the last laugh. She has a God given talent and what a sweetheart. This cd is wonderful. I love all the songs and they will send chills up your spine. This is the dream of all the frumpy girls and the women who are looked upon as homely and useless. We are strong and we mean something. What a wonderful role model for all of us "normal" women. You give all of us strength.
