Especially like the duet with Susan Boyle!!!

The sound mixer made one mistake after another. You cannot play this recording without the volume control in your hand - up and down and up and down. It will drive you nuts. And the combination of songs and vocalists is bad and boring. "From This Moment On" with Susan Boyle is what caused me to buy this album.
