End of the affair


I was very disappointed to receive the soundtrack CD of this recent movie and find the most memorable of all songs "My Haunted Heart" missing. It is the reason I purchased the recording.

Let the musical drug take affect...


Less beat oriented than her previous ablums but still organic and dreamlike as her voice floats atop string arrangements and electronic blips. Bjork has always been creative and adventurous with her lyrics and this time in Vespertine she is even more open and vulnerable as she bares her heart and emotions to beloved fans. I Thought "Homogenic" was Bjork's best ablum to date and then she comes along to match it with "Vespertine", not better than the former but different and impressive in it's own fantastical way. This LP is well done and I highly recommend it.

the DW remix is very good. an excellent single for a fan.


A good single for a wonderful song. I only wish that there were more remixes of DW, the featured remix is excellent, but more would have been better. Unfortunatly "Sky Fits Heaven" doesn't fit in this single. I beleive that the SFH remixes would suite the forthcoming "Nothing Really Matters" single better.

Stories of Love


I love John McDermott's voice but this cd just didn't do it for me. I played it once and today it rests, gathering dust, on the shelf. John can turn out a lovely ballad - he did it with "Mona Lisa" - but the collection on this cd made me wonder if John has lost his ability to choose songs that best showcase his voice. I'd never want to limit him to only traditional Scottish and Irish tunes, but I hope that next time he decides to depart from that genre he does a better job of picking out songs. If you want a John McDermott cd, get "A Day to Myself" -it's much, much better than this one.
