Title: No Strings Attached
Label: Jive

Rating: 4/5
Customer rating - 4 out of 5
*NSYNC is 2nd album - finally!


I heard their songs and I guess it's AVERAGE. I realize that most of the songs on this album is very slow and soft. *NSYNC fans would definitely want this. I like *NSYNC, not obssessed, but they are pretty cool. So, I give them FOUR stars for this CD.

Five stars are pale by the light of this music.


I got the CDs yesterday and spent three hours listening to the first one. There is one out of 15 or so tracks that is just ok. The rest are incredible. At one point I was holding my hands over my face and crying and rocking back and forth, overwhelmed by the great heart in the center of the music. And no, I'm not a fifteen-year-old girl; I am a 42-year-old Java developer and ex-carpenter. I couldn't bring myself to listen to another cd; like QuakeII on the toughest setting, I was afraid to go in. There is an eight minute and 25 second track called Thundercrack that is the equal of anything Bruce ever wrote and it's from 1973. I have appended Bruce to my short list of American genius where he stands with Thoreau, Stein, and Pound.

Brilliant CD!!!


I bought this CD when it was first released back in 1997. I bought it on the strength of DELERIUM's previous albums and I have to say that KARMA is excellent from beginning to end. The only track I don't listen much is the one that everyone knows: SILENCE. It's good but I don't think Sarah's voice works with DELERIUM. Aside from this minor criticism, I love EVERY track on this CD. It's brilliantly conceived, with an equal number of vocal and instrumental tracks. The latest DELERIUM CD, CHIMERA, is almost all (cheesy) vocals and it's doesn't work at all. There's nothing on CHIMERA that even comes close to something like "Euphoria (firefly)" on KARMA. And, unlike CHIMERA, the amazing Kristy Thirsks can be heard on several unforgettable songs.
This CD is one of my favorites of all time. It played a big part of my life back then and even after almost 7 years, I never get tired of it and the music still sounds as fresh and innovative as they did back in 1997!

CD loaded with great songs and voice


I will not go into great detail about "Encore". It is packed with great songs and musical arrangements. But you must have this CD so you can listen to "Va, pensiero", a song that Russell Watson sings often in concert and television. Another reason to OWN this CD is the different kinds of music such as "O sole mio", "Volare", "Ave Maria", "Is Nothing Sacred", "Somewhere", "You Are So Beautiful", "Bohemian Rhapsody", and "Magic of Love".
Great on long day trips or just working at the office (to take your mind away!). Encore is one of the breakthrough masterpieces of Russell's career!
