Editorial Reviews

Standing Ovation sees singing sensation Susan Boyle and world acclaimed producer Biff Stannard join forces to present a stunning album of songs from the golden era of film and stage.

Featuring breathtaking renditions of 'Send in the Clowns' and 'Bring Him Home', Susan fearlessly takes on the iconic song 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' giving it a new identity. 'Standing Ovation' also showcases duets with her lifelong idol Donny Osmond and the "Phantom" himself Michael Crawford. One of the selections, "Memory" from the musical Cats, will be familiar to her fans it's the song Susan sang in the semi-final round of Britain's Got Talent in 2009.

The album heralds a return to an era of much loved music for Susan Boyle, a lifelong fan of musicals. Her favorite songs from the golden age of film and theatre fused with her outstanding vocals from the ethereal to the dramatic, the music showcases the voice the world fell in love with.

Talking about her album Susan said; "I have been a fan of musicals since I was a wee girl. I love them and have enjoyed the drama and the range of emotions they inspire in you. I still remember the first time I saw Les Mis, my all time favorite. I fell in love with it and have seen it now countless times as each time you watch it you draw something different.
Creating this album was a joy and came very naturally as I knew the songs and could identify with the characters in the studio. Recording with Donny on two songs was a dream come true. Working with him was awesome and I learned so much from him as a performer and a person. Being in the studio with him was without doubt the best day ever- it wasn't work!"

Standing Ovation was produced by Biff Stannard in Glasgow and London. Stannard is a highly regarded producer who in the past has worked with Kylie Minogue, U2, Westlife and One Direction to name a few.

Accompanied by the London Philharmonic, this has to be her masterpiece. I just played it all the way through. Here are the tracks in order:

Somewhere Over the Rainbow - lovely with perfect enunciation, crystal clear vocals and wistfulness
Winner Takes It All-- stunning work, emotive, powerful
Send In The Clowns- Best version I have ever heard
Music of the Night-- seductive, powerful- her soprano voice soars and her perfect enunciation again amazes
Bring Him Home-- she sings this beautifully, but be prepared for a tear jerker
Memory-- Clear as a bell in her vocals and shows off a nearly two octave range-- fabulous!
As Long As He Needs Me-- Sleeper of the CD! FANTASTIC- BLOWN AWAY BY THIS! powerful and passionate vocals- this is the stand out track on the cd-I cannot recommend this track more highly.
All I Ask of You---She sings in her highest lyric soprano on this one- outstanding duet with Donny O!
Out Here on My Own-- Can understand why she says this is a favorite- change of pace a bit- when she sings "Baby Be strong for me"- it is very sexy indeed.
YNWA-- Interesting arrangement, and Susan hits the highest notes with ease
This is the Moment-- The best duet ( imho) on the album- her voice and Donny's blend so perfectly

This album fulfills the promise of the audition. Susan is in all her glory-- there is drama, and she uses her powerful voice when needed, her highest ranges, which have been missing on her other CD's, her seductive voice, and her introspective tones -- in other words, it is many shades. It is a MUST HAVE CD for ANYONE who enjoys great music and a one of a kind voice! Kudos to all involved!!
Run, do not walk, to buy this CD for everyone you know

Had to download this as soon as the mp3 was released at midnight. I've got the cd on order and will be able to compare the sound on the 2 soon. For now, I'm just overwhelmed with the power and versatility in these songs. She does "Bring him Home", effortlessly and powerfully--no straining on the high notes like many male singers. "Winner Takes It All" is heartbreaking. She can take another artist's version of a song like "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", sing the exact same notes, but the timbre of her voice gives it a completely different sound. (BTW, her produces says she did "Rainbow" in one take. No wonder she finished the album 2 weeks ahead of schedule.) There's a good blend on all the duets, although I prefer the ones with Donny. I know "You'll Never Walk Alone" is associated with football/soccer in the UK, but she recreates the original inspirational impact of the song. I wish she'd sing it in New York and dedicate it to the victims of the hurricane.

Even if you're not fond of show tunes, I think you will be impressed with her voice itself.

Almost all the music I have at home lies in the pop category. I've always had an eclectic taste and chosen music that appealed to me. I've had my favorite artists and groups over the years just like most people. But, no artist has ever affected me like Susan Boyle. That being said, I'm not fond of musicals and do not purchase this type of music. This album was going to be a stretch for me.

HAVE I EVER BEEN SOUNDLY GIVEN A LESSON! I do have an appreciation for a beautiful voice as well as wonderful orchestration. Susan's magnificent voice is front and center throughout each song in this album and the orchestration does not detract, but enhances throughout. An occasional choir only gives the listener chills at the right moment. Susan's new producer, Biff Stannard, seemed to know when to let a song center on just Susan's voice and then build on it. They are a great team.

Pop girl didn't have one song she didn't like. Somewhere Over the Rainbow was my favorite until I decided they were all my favorite. I have not thought about Donny Osmond in years, but that guy can sing! The two duets with Donny are wonderful, and I am a new fan! And, I think I have fallen in love with Michael Crawford too. I dearly loved the intimate, seductive quality of Music of the Night. I could almost see the seduction taking place, and wasn't sure I was supposed to be there. What a masterful duet! Bring Him Home! -- Wow! Really stark brginning with just Susan's voice and gradually building -- beautiful. I was driving when I heard As Long As He Needs Me for the first time, and my jaw dropped. I realized I was going 80mph! Awesome! Out Here On My Own could be a single it's so good -- bluesy/jazzy -- smokin' voice -- really wonderful!

I got up early to download the mp3 album from Amazon and can't stop listening. Quite simply, Susan Boyle's voice is so beautiful, so pure. She just seems to get better and better. The selection of songs is superb. As the title says, this album includes the greatest songs from the stage. Every track I listen to, I think it's my favorite and then I come to the next one and think the same thing. Impossible to choose a favorite.
Also, how wonderful to have the great Michael Crawford on this album with the sensational duet of "Music of the Night". He has a voice like no other; he is acting and singing at the same time. I also love the duets with Donny Osmond "All I Ask Of You" and "This Is The Moment".
All in all, I am thrilled with this album and I believe anyone who loves beautiful music will enjoy it immensely. Also a great gift for Christmas as my friends will discover when they unwrap their presents from me!

Susan's New c.d. "Standing Ovation" fantastic and without equal!
Clix Pix, what do you think of the quality of the recordings? I think the reviewers are writing her off just because it is a "predictable" album with show tunes and no newly-written songs, which wouldn't be possible on a show tunes album since show tunes have to come from shows that... Read More
