Another year. Another X Factor charity single. Oh dear... Here are my thoughts..
First impressions are not good. It sounds like "Hero" part II, and Hero was awful. "You Are Not Alone" is droney, cheesy, boring and everything else you would expect from twelve average, inexperienced singers 'hand-picked' by Simon Cowell, boy-band picker, I'm-not-as-good-as-my-sister Dannii, and Chezza.
The whole song is extremely over-produced, and I find it very hard to tell the difference between each singer. None of the contestants shine, but I'm surprised to say that I enjoyed Rachel's husky, but short piece.
The song hasn't really achieved anything, but it's all for a good cause, so I encourage everyone to buy the single even if you don't force yourself to sit through it. Actually, it has achieved something- with little effort it has managed to be a lot better than Cheryl's album.
