This is as good as music gets

Nothing is better. The loops are outstanding and they are mixed with perfection. You'll want to listen to this over and over again. The sounds are flawless and you can't help but want to bust a move, cut a rug, or trip the light fantastic. Yeah, that's right, Fatboy Slim's music is the best I have ever heard - period. I can say that with conviction and no doubt in my mind. If you don't buy this CD, you are missing out on 11 of the best tracks of all time.

A great album from the best contestant on American Idol 2!
1. Invisible- I love everything about this song. The music is great, the vocals are amazing, and I love the lyrics. It's about feeling unnoticed by someone you love
2.I Will Carry You-OMG one of my absolute faves!!! The vocals are AMAZING and powerful! This should have been the next single. It's about being there for someone when their world falls apart. It is a truly amazing song that I loved the first time I heard it
3. The Way- the newest single...I definitely think there are better choices for a next single, but this song has a great meaning. It's one of those songs you catch yourself randomly singing
4. When You Say You Love Me- eh, I don't love it. The lyrics aren't that great and I usually skip over it. It's just lacking any catch
5. No More Sad Songs- This song is pretty deep. It's wicked catchy and it has a great rhythm
6. Run to Me- Aweeee another fave! It is sooo sweet and he sings it so well! I loved it right away! The music is awesome as are the vocals
7. I Survived You- great to listen to if you're sad. It's about suriving a bad break up. Great lyrics and the music is good too
8. Shine- another fave!!! I think it's about believing in but the vocals are amazing and so powerful and I love this song
9. This is the Night- I got chills the first time I heard this song. This is his best song I think. He won a Billboard music award for best selling single for it. The lyrics are sooo sweet and the vocals are the best!
10. Perfect Day- Sweet song, strong vocals...I really really like this song..It's about a day being perfect, no matter what5 happened, just because the person you love is with you
11. Measure of a Man- OMG Instant fave!!!!! The lyrics are the best in the CD and you'll fall in love with the song. It's about what really matter in a person. He sings it SOOO well!!!
12. Touch- my least fave...the lyrics aren't great and the vocals are okay....
Buy this album! It is really really awesome!!!!!

A movie about music...

I loved this soundtrack. I was completely absorbed in the movie, and the music was a huge part of it. I'm also a big fan of movie soundtracks, as well as classical. So, for some great piano, with some lighter stuff on the side; I thought it was great. And of course, you can experience the Rach 3...AGAIN Great movie, great soundtrack.

Great Follow Up as long as When It Falls

I've recently concluded that music is ruining my life. I'm addicted to it, it owns me in the car, wakes me and pushes me into the shower in the morning, even influences what I wear. I have a hard time concentrating on anything of significance when I'm listening to music. And I need to think sometimes!
That's where ambient music could be saving me.
The jury is still out on Ambient, but I have made a deliberate attempt to move away from RnB, Rap, Rock, and most Alternative when I need to really use my brain. Ambient music is now canvassing the background in my home, my office (not ready to let into the car yet), and I'm loving it. It sounds like what you'd hear at a W Hotel in the bar, or at the Redwood Room in San Francisco. Just plain cool. You want to grab a Martini, sink into a deep red velvet couch, and just chill.
Of the dozen or so Ambient bands I researched and listened to, Zero 7 is my favorite by far. This new release is better than their first (Simple Things) in my objective "newbie" opinion. The track titled "Home" with vocals by Tina Dico is one of my favorite new songs, also, Sia Furler delivers one of the juiciest vocals on the album in "Somersault".
I've heard allot of comparisons with the group Air, allot of "who knocked who off" type stuff. I haven't checked them out yet, but after listening to this album, who cares? Zero 7 has crafted a work of art that will have you loving each song at first listen...
...and that's quite a feat. It usually takes at least a few listens to prime my interest.
Hope this helped...
