OUT ON CD.

Byline: Paul English

SUSAN BOYLE I DREAMED A DREAM

International web phenomenon Subo's debut LP has covers of tracks from the Monkees to Madonna. Amazingly, her version of Wild Horses sounds more Streisand than Streisand. ***

NEWTON FAULKNER OVER AND OUT

Newtonhasn't delivered anything as catchy as big breakthrough single Dream Catch Me.The ingredients are the same - strings, hooky chorus, acoustic jangle. Disappointingly forgettable. **

TOM WAITS GLITTER & DOOM

The hugely influential Californian with a voice like a rusty cement mixer on his 2008 world tour. Two CD set which contains spoken ramblings from the star of Dr Parnassus movie. ***

CHRIS MOYLES THE PARODY ALBUM

The Radio 1 DJ releases a batch of parody versions of hits. Lorry Driver is his version of Britney Spears' Womanizer, I Predict A Diet his take on The Kaiser Chiefs track. Novelty nonsense. **

CODEINE VELVET CLUB

CODEINE VELVET CLUB

Fratellis' Jon Lawler teams up with Glasgow singer Lou Hickey for an album bursting with attitude. Single Vanity Kills is a great taster for a collection laced with seduction and groaning with a brassy swagger. A late contender for album of the year. ****
