CD Reviews

Nice but not "All That"

"Bought mine & received it from Amazon. I didn't hear any previews or full versions of it, prior to or after buying the CD because I didn't want to spoil the surprise. Ok, as for the artwork, the disc is housed in a standard Jewelcase with front & back inserts and a loose turquoise OBI strip. The four-sided front insert (booklet) features the song lyrics in Japanese and English. Inside the 'booklet' you'll see Sarah in the left, walking through the desert in her peekaboo dress complete with her breast-cage bra from the "Eden" era. This photo was taken at the time of the "La Luna" photoshoot and can be found in the tourbook from the same album. The front cover of the booklet features Sarah in one of her "La Luna" CD booklet photos with appropriate text/titling photoshopped on top of it.

Because IWBWY is a new Sarah Brightman song, new artwork might have been taken into consideration. I like her new "GLAM" image and was kind of expecting something more like that, considering she made this duet with her rock-buddy Chris Thompson. The CD itself is simple. Silver disc with blue text/loop around the inside of the CD's edge.

Sound quality, orchestrations and acoustic guitar are all great, but I'm not sure whether this song will remain on my ipod for long. Other fans are loving this new music quite a lot, and I guess I feel this way because Sarah does sing more in her lower range, exactly like on "What You Never Know", rather than using her trademark bel canto style. Chris Thompson's voice is strong as ever and I always wondered what had become of him since the "How Can Heaven Love Me' duet from Sarah's "Fly" CD. Because Sarah does sing in her lower range, she's nearly drowned out by Chris and the orchestration until she reaches her "I will be with you" part. Well, for the price of the CD, it's worth having because it is new music from Sarah, and it's a collector's item anyway. As for whether this track will show up on Sarah's upcoming CD, who cares? I'd rather be surprised by all new stuff, personal to the artist herself. I'm still anticipating the new album, but won't hold my breath regarding whether or not this track will be on it.

"I always loved this song, Sissel was the original artist who sang it with Espen Lind. And now Sarah has done an amazing job of covering it. The instrumental is beautifully arranged by Paul Bateman. Another beautiful song by Sarah."
First single after many years.

"This is the new song of Ms.Brightman and I have some mixing feelings:

*Always nice music and very easy beatiful song.
*The voice of Sarah B. is very childish and whispery in the versus, the chorus is ok.I don't Know if this childish voice bother me or is too sweet.
*Chris Thompson ,I like his voice.

A sincer Fan.
