I Dreamed a Dream by Susan Boyle

I Dreamed a Dream by Susan Boyle (2009)
Media sensation Susan Boyle apparently hasn’t yet decided on a style. However, this hodgepodge first album probably won’t disappoint fans. Her expressive voice transcends the lush orchestration of the star-making “I Dreamed a Dream” while the elegance of just her voice and piano in her version of the Monkees’ (you read that right) “Daydream Believer” redefines “mellow.” She also includes an unexpectedly effective version of “Wild Horses” (the Stones). However, I most enjoyed Ms. Boyle’s “Cry Me a River," with its slow and sensuous interpretation of the jazzy standard. IMHO, she has all the makings of a jazz chanteuse. Wow! This lady can sing.
