Sarah Brightman

[CD-cover] Symphony

This CD contains a collection of new songs by Sarah and it is released early in 2008 (January - March, depending on the area). Again the record company has had the stupid idea of releasing different versions in different parts of the world -- most irritating from the fan point of view! Anyway, as I live in Europe I mention here the track listing of the European version and I do not intend to list any other version.

Comments

My first impression -- I have heard the CD only once so far -- is that the album has some nice songs I like and some songs that have too much music, drowning Sarah's voice.

More will comments will follow later.

 


 

[CD-cover] Symphony: Live in Vienna

Album released after a live concert in the Stephansdom in Vienna on 16 January 2008, together with a DVD with some interviews and photos. I do not have this album yet, but I guess that all songs are live, except for the bonus track. There also seems to be a DVD of the concert around, with 15 songs (i.e. not the bonux track) plus the material the second disk of this package.
