Faulty Copy Protection?


I excitedly purchased my copy of the 30th anniversary Aladdin Sane and quickly found myself very impressed with the remastering and almost enjoying the album. Almost because 10 seconds into every song the CD skipped (on both CDs), certainly not an acceptable thing for a new CD to do. All other things being equal, I was left to assume that the new copy protection method trumpeted on the back of the case was the culprit. I of course felt it necessary to return the CD and am hoping that this pressing error is corrected so that I can rebuy the disc. You are now warned. So let me give a solid four stars to the album, but the flaw forces me to rate the CD as one star.

Expected to like it - didn't know I would love it


This cd shows Christina is nothing like those other singers. She is in a genre all of her own. "Stripped," breaks all boundries and goes beyond any other artists attempts in writing their own lyrics for their own cd. She is hitting her true issues which other people do happen to relate to. And, she defies and establishes who she is, a true artist who is in a league of her own.

Kamen loves Strauss


It's obvious that Michael Kamen had Richard Strauss's Till Eulenspiegel in mind for this work, and Sam Lawry couldn't have had a more sympathetic and pathetic likeness to the Till of "Merry Pranks" fame. In interviews he said he was pleased with the way the ineffectual heroics of the solo violinist pretended to triumph over the powerful machine of the orchestra. I wonder if he'll be doing something similar for Gilliam's long awaited film on Don Quixote.

Brilliant


I have listened to every song on this album many times and they just get better and better. None of the songs are as good as disarm, but there is no really bad song on it. Best song:Perfect Worst song:Annie dog
