Great to get into Xmas Spirit!!!


First of all, let me say Im not a music expert... but I do love Christmas music, and THIS CD contains an excellent compilation of songs loved by everyone!!!
In my very humble opinion, Charlotte Church has an incredible voice, it has the power of an adult, but the sweetness and innocence of a child, and it is hard to find both things in one.The choir is excellent, very powerful and harmonious.The arrangements make the songs sound lively and "happy", even though they are sung in a very classical fashion.
All in all, a great CD for Christmas Eve, Christmas day, giving and receiving, and just enjoying the music!!!
Finally... a lovely Christmas gift.

Nightfall...


Having only recently been introduced to David Lanz's music, but having been acquainted with a diverse collection of other New Age work, my expectations were very high.

This album as a whole did not catch my breath as some other New Age albums, but three songs in particular not only caught my breath, but also blew me away - 'Leaves On The Seine', 'Nightfall', and 'Courage Of The Wind'. Personally, these songs are up there with some of the most beautiful melancholic melodies ever created.

A great tribute to piano music.

Title: Room for Squares

Mediocre.


I was expecting a lot more from this. I don't know why. I guess I'm just used to listening to David Gray, who in my opinion, is a better songwriter than John Mayer.
Don't get me wrong, this CD isn't a bad buy. But don't pay more than [price range] U.S. for it... it's not worth it. Don't expect Bob Dylan or David Gray or anything. Some of the songs are catchy, some aren't. The lyrics are nothing extremely special. I give it three stars because it seems as if he writes these songs from his heart, but nothing more because it also seems as if it's completely over-produced... it doesn't display John's raw talent like I thought it would.

How did Beyonce win 5 Grammy's for this


I really don't know why Beyonce won 5 Grammy's for her album Dangerously In Love The album was okay and all But like everyone else said the album did had a lot of ballads and they're were only 4 uptempo dance songs on the album.When I first heard Crazy in Love on the radio and saw it on MTV I was not impressed I expected better from Beyonce but I then started to like it a bit after hearing it over and over and over again I finally caught on to it.Baby Boy Beyonce's next single Is my favorite track off the entire album Sean Paul and Beyonce make a duo.Naughty Girlis also another decent song off the album I like the original much better than the remix version with Lil' Kim and Lil' Flip.The fifth track off the album is the first ballad off the album and the rest of the album from 5-15 is basically well Ballads.Be With you is an ok track Beyonce even hits the high note hich kind of surprised me a bit.Me Myself and I is another great Ballad and it really is an anthem for women.Some songs that I really disliked were Yes and Speechless those song for me were a total borefest for me I actually fell asleep on those songs.The album also includes a remake of The Closer I get to you with a duet with Luther Vandross Another one of my favorite songs off the album I really wish this song was released as single and it still might have a chance even though Luther is recovering from his Stroke.The album is decent and I don't think it deserved so many grammys But its still worth listening if you're a Fan of Beyonce
