5.0 out of 5 stars Our Suze has done it yet again!!!!!!, November 13, 2012
This review is from: Standing Ovation: The Greatest Songs From The Stage (Audio CD)
I have always wanted more of Suze ever since she literally exploded all over the pop world back in 2009 after appearing on England's version of American Idol. Her inexcusably plain-Jane looks and her Christ-like humility have stolen my heart, I must confess! I just adore how she keeps us wanting more and more of her by spacing out her various albums long enough to make our subservient hearts grow fonder of her. To wit, one album per year is the perfect wait time and not at all indicative of a cash-in mentality at all! Standing Ovation continues Suze's plump tradition of singing memorable songs that allow me to forget about all of the problems in my life while she serenades me with her sweet, sweet voice that clearly comes from the lips of an angel.

Standing Ovation also continues Suze's incomparable talent for being perfectly original and very unique. I think the compilation album of old movie songs is a concept that has never, ever been done before, if I'm not mistaken. Ahhh, that's our Suze alright: plump amounts of perfect spacing between album releases and brilliant originality! I thank the Lord each night before I lay my head to sleep that that demi-god of musical awesomeness--Simon Cowell--had the c/a/j/o/n/es to "discover" her on Ireland's version of American Idol.

The selection of old-timey movie songs is almost perfect, with my favorite being the cover of Michael Crawford's The Music of the Night. While this rendition is, admittedly, not as diva-like as the version with Antonio Banderas singing his little Latin heart out, it still got me off...off my bad mood, that is! Woohoo! When I was listening to Somewhere Over the Rainbow, I small tear trickled down either my left or right eye because I was instantly transported back to Kansas and Toto (the rad group, not the pooch) due to its schmaltzy sentimentality.

I do hate to even mildly critique our Suze for we all know that she is virtually heaven-sent and, therefore, can do no wrong, but I feel that some far more classic movie songs should have been included here. I would literally...literally give my left you-know-what to hear our Suze's blessed vocal chords tackle these following movie songs that would have been right at home on this CD. This CD should have included Purely Sexual by Xavier from the highly regarded Showgirls movie, Black Snake Moan by that fine affirmative-action thespian Samuel L. Jackson, and, of course, the Crossed Legs instrumental score from the Basic Instinct soundtrack (perhaps our Suze could just hum that salacious tune, huh gals?!)

In closing, I just want to say that I volunteer myself to give Suze her first kiss in life, if she'll have me.

I'll bet you had fun writing that bogus "review."

To other readers: If you gave this review a "yes" vote before thoroughly reading it and want to change it to a "no" vote, just click on the "no" and refresh the page. It should change your vote. Try it again if it didn't work the first time.

As bizarre as your review is, it gave me a chuckle. I actually enjoyed it. You have a very clever wit and a real gift with words . Its too bad you are wasting it on mean spirited reviews. Sour grapes perhaps?
