You could never call this contemporary, but it certainly is class. If you like your female vocalists in the traditional mould -controlled, excellently pitched and the voice a musical instrument all of its own, then Susan is for you. There was a time when every vocalist in the local church choir wanted to sound like this, and although that day has now passed us by, Susan is testament to that time. The album starts in rhythmic style with "Dancing In My Heart" but it is songs like "People Need The Lord" seven tracks in which is Susan's real strength. It's by far the best song on the album, no mean feat since there are sixteen tracks in all, and at least five others could lay claim to the honour. But "People Need..." is in a different league, combining Susan's Salvation Army beliefs with her fabulous voice. Tearful stuff, and extremely earworthy. Thanks Susan for an album of commitment... and contentment.
