Pure Genius


Many records have a couple of good songs which stand out on a record and that is what you have paid for. On this second Duran LP, you pay very little and get decades worth of enjoyment. Each song on this New Romantic anthem click. The remastered version of the album is much different from the album I originally bought as a high schooler, but it's nice to hear each instrument individually now. Plus, it has a little harder edge to it especially on "My Own Way", "Lonely in your Nightmare" and "Hold Back the Rain".

Brilliant but not for the squeamish


The only reason this gets 4 not 5 stars is that after listening to 10 minutes of this set, you will grow light-headed and faint at the prospect of the listening time that lies ahead. Persist. It is worth it. Turn off the lights, sit on your hands and listen to all the disks, back to back, the whole way through. Hear. Wonder, "what the h**l is this?" Repeated listenings will reveal the answer. As far as why I recommend it, I will say only that this opera opened my eyes to a musical world far wider than what one hears on the radio on any and every given day.

Great album - Thought provoking, insightful...


This is a classic David Wilcox album...all of this music comes from his heart, from a deeper place than even some of his previous deep music. As usual, his playing is great (Phil Keaggy plays bass on some of the pieces...is that cool or what?!) But it's always his lyrics that keep me coming back for more. Plus he signed my head when I was bald, so how could I not adore him?!

I don't like it


I'm not a fan of classical music. I a fan of pop. I only wanna say that I don't like this cd. The singing here is awful. No feeling, just coarse shouting all the time. The singing can learn a lot of pop singers in terms of feeling and maybe even technique. Fit for the bin!
