    Has anyone downloaded her new album?


    In my opinion, she sounds awesome in the professional recordings. This is my favorite song on the album so far. I love how she sings this song with personality and soul:

    Very nice. It looks like they did persuade her to change her image a tad for the album cover... But she's got a lovely, expressive voice.

    If you liked that version of the song you should listen to the original by Patty Griffin - its pretty incredible. Also, Kelly Clarkson did an awesome version of it too a few years ago.

    Oh, and yeah SuBo sounds amazing on her CD!!

    How many of her sales were pre-sales? Is this the first week the CD was released? Seems her popularity has decreased since the initial appearance on the talent show.

    She is freaking fantastic.

    I hope she can handle the fame.

    Thanks for reminding me, was going to down-lode the CD and got side tracked.

    Boyle has a voice but she isn’t incredible. I think the shock of her looking like a truck driver and actually being able to sing still hasn’t worn off. When you really listen to her, she is very generic and simple, but nothing spectacular. Let’s not over inflate her talent just because she is a novelty Youtube sensation.

    I agree.. she is nothing spectacular... but has a decent voice.. its not all that great though. Lets face it - she is popular because of her poor humble "image".. she is an inspiration for many others out there..and a stupid reality show made her a superstar.. there is much better talent out there that have not been picked up and commercialized like she has been... anyway I don't think she will be around too long.... by next year she will be forgotten most likely and some new reality star will take over.

    By far, one of the most heart-warming out of left field success stories of 2009. I am so happy that this woman has had the chance to be discovered and have her moment to shine -- Good for her!!!

    Isn't that why Lady GaGa is popular. She is about looks not talent. People like here because she wows people with her costumes and what she says and does on TV. Susan has a very great voice. I agree that her fame is from the whole "she looks like this but can sing" aspect but nowadays it seems like looks and show are always before talent

    She is also great because she is real. No fakeness like a lot of celebrities these days. She is 48 years old, she didn't get picked up until now, it's just luck. That is how the business is, it's sad but that's the way it is. There are a lot of great singers who aren't as fampus as they should be but I feel like if they were, it would take away why they are special. They are hidden gems. Susan was a hidden gem and I think she still is. If susan is ever forgotten like u say, which I doubt, then it will be because she is doing the same thing she is now and not trying to be someone else just to get attention. I think Susan's rise to fame is genuine unlike a lot of others stars around today.

    Well Lady Gaga can sing, put on a show, and write and compose her own songs; which I think is much more talent then Susan just having a voice! Yes Susan can sing, but it´s because she came out looking the way she does, gave a laughable interview, and then proved that she can sing. Good for her with her success, I just think she's overhyped and boring.

    I believe she got a huge make over...slowly falling into the hollywood machine. Soon she'll be hanging with the like of Amy Winehouse to cope with the fame.

    And her rise to fame isn't genuine, it was luck as you said! Lucky she tried out for Britain's Got Talent. Again Lady Gaga would be more genuine starting as a song writer for other people, doing small shows, getting her name out. Even though she's a little crazier now with the outfits, it´s ok it adds to her allure.

    Every so often an artist comes along whose personal story is even more compelling than their god-given talent. Obviously, Susan Boyle was not gifted with beauty, but had "that voice" not come out of her and not been heard just at the right time, by the right audience, she would have never been plucked from obscurity to become a worldwide sensation with record breaking sales. Had her talent not been "incredible" she would never have made it past the first round. This is the kind of story that has to happen now and then to remind people (those with aspirations of their own dreams coming true) that miracles do happen, and even the Susan Boyle's of the world have hope that no dream is beyond their reach if they will only believe in themselves.

    Well I don´t think her success is based on her singing ability alone! Best of luck to her, but I just feel she's over hyped on her voice when singers to me like Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, etc are better singers. Not basing it on looks here just their voice.

    Awesome! I would love to see Subo do a dance video to this! Can't wait to here more of the dance mixes to her music. Whether she is a lesbian or not, she is becoming a gay icon rather quickly.

    Personally, and no offense, but I don't think you're really getting it. To compare Susan Boyle to Mariah Carey, Cristina, Jennifer Huson, etc is kind of silly. You're comparing apples and oranges. Completely different genre of music, audience, and style. Don't kid yourself if you think that "singing ability" alone got Mariah, Jennifer, Cristina, Lady Gaga, or any other artist the success they found. Luck plays a huge part in all of it, not to mention physical presence and how it all works together at the right time. If Mariah Carey looked like Susan Boyle, do you think she would have ever been scooped up by Tommy Mattola and discovered? Maybe, maybe not. It's all about being at the right place at precisely the right time and heard by perhaps the one person in the world who will see your gift and be willing to put their own career on the line to bring that gift to the masses.
