A Rising Star


You know that an artist is popular when he garners so many reviews from so many people that love and hate him but this guy is a rising star!It took a lot of guts to get up in front of a panel of judges to audition for American Idol and then even more guts to sing in front of Simon and the rest of America! This album contains songs from different genres of popular music so there's something for everyone. I personally love them all! Give it a chance. I'm sure that you will NOT be disappointed.We gave Clay a chance and look where he is now!
And for those of you who keep saying that he's ugly, take a good look at yourself in the mirror and see what's inside.

SUPERIOR DARKNESS


From the first time I put in the POTO it encompassed me with a darker side to music. It was one of loneliness and self-pity. From the superb lyrics to the outstanding music...this show and music have it all. From the breathtaking effects on stage to the flat out superb musical quality on the sound track, there is no one who couldn't fall in love with this masterpiece and "let there darker side give in." However, I never did see Michael Crawford (Phantom) on Broadway (I have seen him on concerts since), his voice and character amazed me and made the character "come to life." This tragic tale of twisted love will leave you breathless until the end!

Title: Midway: Original Motion Picture Score (1998 Re-recording)
Label: Varese Records
Artist: John Williams
Rating: 5/5

A Beautiful CD


Not only did John Williams have to compete with the noise and fury of the Pacific War in this project but in the original film release the jarring SENSURROUND gimmick was also booming in the theatres. Williams created a series of transitional cues to tie the many battle scenes together. In addition to his great action scoring (fans of "Jaws" will be most interested), there are the two terrific main set pieces at the end of the CD: "The Midway March" and the theme for the "Yorktown." This disc has about 25 minutes of previously unavailable music. This re-recording is faithful to the original.

New listener


I haven't listened to that much jazz up to this point, but I read of this album and decided to listen to it... Basically, I was entranced and delighted and it has encouraged me to look at the form of music more closely... To me, this music is an example of art in its truest form.
