Christmas


Unusual mix of songs, every one is pleasant to listen to. Great introduction to Michael Ball. I love it, and will listen to it all year long, not just at Christmas. The theme may be love and peace, good for Michael, we need more of it.

soft, heartfelt and beautiful music


From the avant-garde rock of "No One Receiving" to the soft, hymn-like "Spider and I", this is one fine album that I listen to often (start to finish without skipping). There are only two instrumentals on here ("Energy Fools the Magician" and "Through Hollow Lands"..."Energy Fools the Magician" being the better one) and the vocal tracks make you realize the power and structure of Brian Eno's songwriting. "Backwater" is a fun song that features the piano...similar to "St. Elmo's Fire" and "I'll Come Running" from Another Green World. Songs 1-5 are mostly energetic, and 6-10 are softer. The softer songs are the most enjoyable ones. "Julie With", "By This River" and "No One Receiving" are my favorites on here. The keyboard parts in "Julie With" and "By This River are really touching and beautiful. Before and After Science is very essential if you enjoyed Another Green World. Although it's not as good, it will make you appreciate Eno's music even more.

Master Class, but still too stuffy


A brilliant idea of Maestro Pavarotti, these concerts, and especially this one. I enjoyed the Ave Maria, where Dolores (one of my favourite pop-stars) clearly shows that she had some profit from canto classes she took in youth. But the "Linger" version was not alike, listening more to Simon Le Bon than the original voice...
Strange, but interesting and cool combination between rap and opera ("Serenata Rap/Mattinata"). Well, such things could never be seen before, eh?
A good bunch of masters packed in to make a great record for a good deal. But.. aren't there too many styles? Yhat's the missing star...

One of a kind


I loved this album! I'm only 15, but i know my music, and this music is something i am definitely glad to know. It's different, it's fun, it's interesting, and it's one of a kind! If you don't have it, get it! Share it with everyone! I guarantee it will give you a whole new meaning of music. With Bruce Haack's inventiveness, and Esther Nelson's expressiveness, you will want to listen to it again and again!
