  1. Susan said she dreamed of meeting Elaine Paige. Susan, you could do harmony vocals for Elaine any day. Soooooo looking forward to her debut CD.

  3. Pleasantly surprised. I LOVE "Wild Horses". Restrained orchestration. Susan's voice sounds so clear. This is a very emotional, intimate version of a great song. Bravo!

  5. She had me singing along with her in less than 30 seconds. Great job. Too bad she could not be persuaded to cover an even better ballad, "Moonlight Mile," from the same Stones album.

  6. Though I appreciated "I Dreamed....," I must admit that the hype lowered my expectations considerably. I was SO wrong! What a lovely rendering of a classic pop/rock ballad. Once again, Susan Boyle utterly defies expectation! Gorgeous.

  7. Wow . she's got control of her vibrato that singers half her age would envy. Looking forward to hearing the rest of the album.

  12. Wow. Amazing.

  13. .....good for Susan Boyle, but with easy listening versions of their classics being covered perhaps the Stones will now be inspired to finally write that great country/blues album we've all been waiting for since Some Girls.

  14. Really, really amazing. SuBo is destined for greatness once her album hits!

  15. Wow. I was really afraid that she had spun out once and for all, and that what she summoned up in that first audition was in the nature of a one-off.

    Clearly not true; she's been carefully, very sensitively produced, and the result is lovely, moving, and far, far more sophisticated than I would have expected.

  16. Expectations exceeded. Brilliant. Ms. Boyle has delivered. I hope she performs this on AGT Wednesday.

  17. Gee, I thought she was just a crappy mimic with bad taste. (the next Elaine Page? I cringe)
    I'm honestly impressed and would even consider buying (ok, pirating) a cd. So very interesting. Clearly, all that pathos and crazy wasn't an act, but experience she can tap and channel into something beautiful. she might have to give the old tin horn Elaine a lesson.

  18. LOVE IT! Can't wait to buy it!

  19. Sounds like put upon melodrama. The Sundays did a much better cover years ago that actually emotes.

  20. OMG!! Gorgeous!! Can't wait for the debut in November. You go Susan!!

  21. Blasphemy!!!!!!!!!! Complete and utter pablum.

  22. Great job on the cover, that's genius!

    Posted by: Jocko | Sep 13, 2009 5:25:15 PM

  23. Out of this world ! Her singing makes me feel happy...........and that's just one side of her !

  24. A little too paint-by-the-numbers for my taste but better than I expected... I have to agree with Unruly, The Sundays did a much better version.

    Posted by: james | Sep 13, 2009 7:32:36 PM

  25. She can sing to me any day of the week!!!
    I am buying it as soon as possible!
