Editorial Reviews

2009 collection from the world's favorite mezzo-soprano. From the crossovers of Cohen's 'Hallelujah' to the straight operatic conventions of Puccini's 'O Mio Babbino Caro', Jenkins proves that she is nothing if not versatile. Her lengthy career has also seen such highlights as a version of 'Time To Say Goodbye' (originally made famous by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman) and Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Music Of The Night', from his Phantom Of The Opera musical. Throughout this collection, it is Jenkins' maturity beyond her years that impresses most in performance. Decca. 2009.

Although Katherine Jenkins recorded six albums for Decca, this collection draws heavily on just three of them, these being Second Nature, Living A Dream and Serenade. It would be fair to say that these were the albums that really established Katherine's reputation following her promising debut album, which isn't represented here at all.

It's possible to argue what should have been included. The compilers had a hard job in selecting seventeen tracks that represent the best of Katherine's Decca music. No doubt the selection was influenced by the need to ensure that the album qualified for inclusion in the classical music charts, as all but one of her earlier albums did. This may explain the absence of Katherine's exquisite covers of We'll meet again, You'll never walk alone and Amazing grace, to name but three popular songs that I would like to have seen included. But I am pleased that Decca chose to include Don't cry for me Argentina. This was not included on Living A Dream , but it was included in a deluxe edition of the same album. I decided not to pay the premium price for just that track and one other. There's also a deluxe edition of this collection,

I like Katherine Jenkins and have all of her older albums so I almost skipped getting this one. However, I am glad that I ended up getting the album. There are 3 new songs on it. The album is quite enjoyable. Note: There are two versions of this album. One has 14 songs and one has 17 songs. If you want the new music, get the one with 17 songs. This collection is more "show tunesy" than some of her more classically themed albums. Highly recommended.

I also am relatively new to Katherine. I am a violinist/cellist who really doesn't care for genuine opera and am delighted with the versatility and arrangements Katherine presents. She is incredible. My current favorite has to be "Daydream," though I love what she has done with the theme from "Mission"- the "Gabriel's Oboe" theme. wow. My only two wishes- and in simply commenting thus, I realize I, too am guilty of promoting this first-are that reviewers would stop sensationalizing Kath's physical beauty as so integral a part of describing her- and that people would quit trying to categorize her so. She has a super stage presence, an innocence, a naturalness uncommon to the usual expectations of a mezzo performer. This is Katherine Jenkins! She colors outside the box and does she ever know how to color! Brava to this exceptional young artist who is living her dream!

This is a fine DVD, although anyone could argue about whether the contents are an "ultimate" collection. I have my favorites, as I'm sure you do -- so no single compilation would ever satisfy everyone. A couple of observations: Generally, I would prefer if KJ NOT record songs already performed by other artists. Doing so, invites an apples and oranges type of comparison. Having said that, I believe her rendition of "Nella Fantasia" is the best I've heard. Oddly, the same holds true of "Music of the Night." Though Webber wrote this for a male voice, I haven't heard one yet that does it justice. Although KJ's version's orchestration lacks the original authenticity/punch that say Sarah Brightman's recording presents, KJ's mezzo soprano vocals are better equipped to handle the lower notes. On the down side, "Time to Say Goodbye" is unbeatable by the Bocelli/Brightman duet. "Caruso" is a signature song of Bocelli. KJ does a great job with this, but, again, it only invites/instigates comparison. "I Could Have Danced All Night" is owned by Julie Andrews. "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" is a flat effort by KJ, and cannot stand up to the renditions of Sarah Brightman or even Madonna. Why? Well, if I have one criticism of KJ it is that she simply cannot inject personal emotion/passion in any of her songs. (Brightman and Madonna (for instance) have a long history of theatricality under their belts. Perhaps KJ is still too young/inexperienced to feel comfortable surrendering to these impulses (if she has them). I don't know. She seems focused on technical perfection and unable (yet) to inject her own soul into the recordings. I think she'll get to that point, but it might take awhile.Read more ›

She is a great singer - amazing voice. This particular cd of hers has a selection of songs that my wife really enjoys. If you are a fan, you don't need to be told how good she is. If you are not a fan, you will be after listening to this.

Katherine Jenkins packs quite a vocal ability, and shares it with the audience in this CD. As I do not currently own any of her other material, I cannot compare this work with any of her others. And although I have a musical background, I usually am not a particular fan of opera-style music/musicians. However there have been a few exceptions, notably Hayley Westenra and the original 3 tenors group (Carreras, Domingo, Pavarotti).

A nice variety of songs, not just opera extracts, makes this CD very enjoyable. The reason I got it in the first place since I am not an opera fan? Well, somehow it showed up in the list of recommendations for me, and I decided to listen to some of the snippets. I was both surprised and impressed enough to order this CD, and for me it was well worth it.

Not to worry though -- I am still not a big fan of opera! :)
