CD Reviews

Wendy Carlos - 'Tales Of Heaven & Hell' (East Side Digital)
Mike Reed | USA | 08/30/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"As HARD as I really tried to get into this work by composer Wendy Carlos,I simply could not. 'Tales Of...' is JUST too strange. Just call the music on this CD 'weird electronic'.Liked the reissue for the 'Clockwork Orange' movie soundtrack SO much better(see my review). It's obvious that the music here is classically influenced.Two cuts here I thought were so-so are "Transitional" and "City Of Temptation". Seven tracks,duration is 57:27. I mean if you enjoy several of Carlos's other releases,you get nearly a full hour of true oddness here. Just might appeal to patient fans of Tomita,Kraftwerk,Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Co. and Carl Craig."
A musical classic

"I recently purchased TALES OF HEAVEN AND HELL by WENDY CARLOS and it is a true classic of music. I truly adore listening to this cd. Any work by Wendy Carlos is wonderful but this is exceptonal. I have purchased this cd for my friends too and they all savour it."
