Not at all what I expected...


...and that about sums it up! I loved the song, Babylon, and purchased this CD because I felt that the writer/vocalist of that song must surely be able to compile a memorable CD. The fact that two versions of Babylon are on the CD should have been a tip of sorts. Clearly, the version I enjoy so much is one that has been worked with in the studio. Some producer somwhere obviously felt the need to remix the song in order to give it the style and feel that made it the hit it was. The remaining tracks reveal the mediocre ability of the artist. I really was ready to love this CD when it arrived, but after five listenings, my feelings remain the same.

Best Album Ever!!!


One phrase describes this album. "The best album of all time". Every song on this album is worthy of being a #1 hit.Including the bonus tracks "Streetwalker" and "Fly Away".All of Michael Jacksons best music was when he was workingwith Quincy Jones. While all his new material is still verygood, his work with Quincy has always been the best. This album is better than most artists greatest hits albums. It's like a greatest hits album within itself, just like "Thriller"and "Off The Wall" was. If you haven't bought this album youare really missing out on something special. Trust me.

hypnotizing


I don't know what to say about this CD. Bryers is one of the best modern composers, without a doubt. It's not like this is one of my favorite albums, either. But something has to be said about a looped track that you can listen to for 20+ minutes. I mean, I can't listen to Mariah Carey for more than three without getting queasy. Yet I can listen to some old guy singing the same thing over and over, and I can't bring myself to turn it off. Now THAT is musical genius.

Beautiful, passionate and pure!


Never,in this life did I think that I would hear the purity of Caruso, the sweetness of Bjoerling, the effortlessness of Pavarotti, nor the power of Domingo, in another voice. Bocelli possesses all of these attributes. Purchasing this CD, and hearing him for the first time, made me weep! It's not just a matter of range or hitting a high note, it's what your vocal cords are doing in the process. This man's voice dances along all the way up and down the scales with a vibrato that must be heard to be believed. Bocelli, gives us the greatest spectacle of voice since Enrico Caruso.
