    Three albums in, Boyle sounds like she's finally arriving.

    Someone To Watch Over Me has the makings of a perfectly solid mopey-piano-girl album, largely eschewing chest-beating for a coarser-grained approach that serves the singer rather well.

    Her overemphasised enunciation puts Boyle firmly in the Julie Andrews stage show tradition but, at her best, she rises above inoffensive background music to gently brush the emotions.

    Cut by cut, Someone to Watch Over Me is not as strong as its forerunners.

    She sounds like a showbiz bet marking time. [11 Nov 2011, p.75]

    Boyle has proven herself capable of doing one thing and one thing only, and Someone to Watch Over Me simply doesn't change that.
  7. Boyle's versions are professionally executed but phenomenally dreary.

    What a shocking album, way to slow, doesn't have anything there to keep me interested in the album. The album sound like a desperate attemptWhat a shocking album, way to slow, doesn't have anything there to keep me interested in the album. The album sound like a desperate attempt to build her her previous success, but it fails miserably. Her vocals aren't as strong and yh the songs just aren't interesting. Its just a way to slow album for mainstream success. Collapse
