Awesome Cd!


This cd was one of the best cds I have ever purchased. My favorite song is "This I promise you". The cd has a variety of songs, some are upbeat and will wake you up, and some will make you cry (atleast one of them did for me). I would recommend this cd to anyone who is up for a rad experience.

coloratura perfection


This is a wonderful collection of coloratura pieces. Dessay is tremendous technically, and, though the voice can be a bit thin at times, she is absolutely stunning in this repertoire. As a coloratura-in-training, I am listen in awe as Dessay fools her audience into thinking this is simple stuff! While it may seem to be on the verge of heresey, I much prefer Dessay to Joan Sutherland (though she is indeed La Stupenda) and even enjoy listening to her over Sills. The reviews which comment on Dessay seeming to have a less-than solid sound and comparing her to Fleming may be forgetting that this type of literature cannot afford to sound weighty, nor can the voice perform optimally with a weight up in the rafters! Though I think Fleming is a fine singer, I personally prefer listening to Dessay, and I certainly learn more from the experience. This is an incredible album and a true accomplishment. Also, if Dessay is your cup of tea, check out the recording of Lakme with Dessay in the title role-wow!

Mariah glitters more than ever


If Music Box was Mariah's BALLAD ALBUM, then Glitter is defenetly Mariah's PARTY ALBUM. I would have never believed that GLITTER is that a great album. Yeah, we've got a lot of party on it, but the ballad fans will not be sad at all. "Lead the way" and "never too far" are old school Mariah ballads and they prove, that Mariah's voice is still as good as it was on "Vision of Love". The success of GLITTER may have been not that great, and Radio may not respond to Mariah Carey songs that much anymore, but who cares...Mariah is better than ever and I hope she keeps going this glittering way!!!! Britneys and J.Los come and go...but Mariah will always stay!!!!

This is a terrific compilation!


I'm not familiar with classical music, but this album is terrific. We use it with our 11 month-old son, and he seems to really enjoy it. As to whether it is really "building his brain," I can't say. I just know that he seems to relax and focus better now that he's being exposed to this music regularly. Soothing and well-produced, I think you'll find this album is easy on everyone in the family (much easier on Dad than a "Barney" album, for example). And at this price, you won't be sorry!
