Ambient? Background? Hello? Anybody home?

"What's wrong with these people? The Stepford children? If you can't see the difference between "background" music and music created for listening (as in "paying attention") then there's no hope for you guys.On to the review: Greenslade is an outstanding musician and that is fairly obvious on some tracks, particularly the "orchestral" ones. Even on the lighter, more humorous numbers (e.g. Wizard's Staff) his talent shines through. "Small Gods" and "Wyrd Sisters" are simply great, really atmospheric and involving.If you like music with more than 3 chords and intelligent, skillful arrangements then give this one a chance. And if on top of that you're into Discworld then I think you'll like Greenslade's interpretation of Terry Pratchett's work."
From the Discworld--ho, hum

"I'm a big discworld fan and a so-so ambient music fan--this album fell into the second category. If you're the "buy everything with Pratchett on it!!!!!" sort, this is *almost* a must-have. If you just enjoy the books, don't bother. I've almost given this one away twice now. I did enjoy the "Stick and Bucket Dance," which was clever and well-executed, and thought "Wizard's Staff" was a good modern folk song, though it could have used a bit more innuendo. Try and find a few of the songs and listen before you buy this one--it's not what you're thinking."
For the first ever music CD, it fantasic!!!!

"All the music ever mentioned in the books from the 'Wizards Stuff' to the 'Bucket and Stick'. With music from the shades, and the clickys. Pitty the hedgehog song isn't included!!!!!"
