While listening to Le Onde, I often wondered how Einaudi's wonderful melodies would be benefitted by adding extra instruments to supplement the solo piano. This, however, is not Le Onde; its melodies, though distinctly those of Ludovico Einaudi, rarely manage to be as simply effective as those of its predecessor. They are certainly good, but not as good as precedents would have led me to believe. Apart from two or three excellent tracks, the rest strike me as being rather bland. Having said that, where it is good, it really shines. Buy it by all means, but Le Onde is much superior and that album should be in your collection first.
