Leaves you "AIKEN" for more!

I have listened to this CD for HOURS already!! I just leave the repeat button on. "Bridge Over Troubled Water" is sung by Clay as though it is a brand new song, never heard before. His rich vocal nuances are heard throughout and leave you breathless! The performance to end all performances is "This Is The Night". Any other artist could not do it justice. CLAY has the makings of a superstar and these performances leave you wanting more! I have three copies just in case!

This is a good CD. Pure and simple ! "Butterflies" is a nice tune but the cut 'SPEECHLESS' is truly beautiful. Good arrangement. touching lyrics...gentle and reaxing....there is quiet passion in it. This is a good buy.

The Most Beautiful Music in the World

This review refers to the "Out Of Africa" Soundtrack CD by MCA Records....
Old Fashion phrases like "dreamy" and "makes me swoon" come to mind when I think of the beauty in this music. Composer John Barry has added his genius to many films,"Dances With Wolves" and "Indecent Proposal" just to name a couple, and this one is one of the most beautiful and dramatic examples.
There are 12 "dreamy" tracks. Opening with the "Main Title"(I Had A Farm In Africa"), and including three variations on "Karen's Theme"("I'm Better At Hello", "I Had A Compass From Denys", and "If I Know A Song of Africa"), Barry's genius captures Karen's emotions, her feelings for Denys and her passion for the country and people of Africa). "Flying Over Africa" and the "End Title", ("You Are Karen")..will at the very least evoke goose bumps,and if you have seen the film and remember those scenes, may even bring a little lump to your throat. There is also some tradtional African Music, "Siyawe" which is wonderful and then there's Mozart - "Concerto For Clarinet and Orchestra in A" performed by The Academy Of St. Martin-In-The-Fields, and Directed by Neville Marriner(Jack Brymer, Clarinet).
The CD is an excellent quality. It sounds wonderful on the stereo. I like to turn it up quite a bit, so I think my neighbors must love it too, cause I haven't heard any complaints!
So, "Let The Rest of The World Go By" (also included), get ready to "swoon" and enjoy.....Laurie

Amazing performance, substandard songs

During the run of "American Idol," I was just like most of you--riveted to the show week after week because of Clay Aiken's astonishing voice. On the show, he sang and excelled in a variety of musical genres. However, on "Measure of a Man," the producers have done Clay a disservice by giving him only mediocre ballads to sing. I kept hoping for at least one uptempo song--or funky song--or even funny song, to display Clay's amazing range and playful personality. I guess I'll have to wait for a concert DVD to get a full-fledged dose of Clay to rival his AI performances, because this CD doesn't deliver.
