Format: Audio CD
Sarah Brightman has been everything from lunar popster to Broadway goddess. But her career took some weird turns before she settled on her current classical-pop sound. She seems to be sticking to that, with some forays into epic dance.

But several years ago, she was still fumbling for a style. And of her dabblings in different pop styles, one of the most successful resilts was "Fly." This bizarre album both hints at her present mastery and shows off her vocals, although a few of the songs -- Tom Jones, anybody? -- veer into misstep turf.

The hint of more operatic material is in the opening number, "Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partir?)," a wonderful duet with singer Andrea Bocelli. It makes the next track, "Fly," a little more disarming, a surreal dreamlike song that starts off with a fly's buzzing.

After that, Sarah Brightman launches into a series of surreally different songs -- haunting, whispery Sigur-Ros-like songs, soaring pop songs, Indian influenced balladrey, clashy technorock, and a rather jerky duet, "Something in the Air," with Tom Jones.

Versatility is something to always admire in music, even when the artist/band can't settle down on one style long enough. In these songs, Brightman isn't always successful, but she hit the mark a lot more often than she misses. Not one sounds like another, and most of them are pleasant in their own styles.

Musically, she touches on opera, pop, techno, alternative music and influence from countries like India and Iceland for this album. The result is that each song is entirely unique. The writing for the music is quite good; the general feeling is very haunting, dreamlike -- whether that dream is a nightmare or a fantasy.

Even the guys she sings with are very different.

**This review was written for the Japanese edition of this album - Amazon seems to have merged the editions together and was never intended to be published for the normal edition** (Update - 01/06/2013)

I would like to assume that you're looking at this page because you already know the album 'Fly' in its original format, and simply want to know if forking out extra money for this new edition is worth it. This review is simply about this edition and the two stars refer to this edition, not to the actual 'Fly' album.

This is the fourth edition of Fly (yes, that's right, the fourth of her least successful studio album). Perhaps Sarah and team really want to drum into the world what they missed back in 1996 when this gem was originally released, and I do not blame them - the world did miss something. The first edition is pretty much the track listing of this edition being reviewed without the bonus tracks. The second tried to cash in on the success of the single 'Time to Say Goodbye' in 1997, and re-issued the album with the seriously out of place song as the album's opener. The third edition is one you'll probably never see unless you have hundreds of pounds to spare and frequent eBay a hell of a lot, and that is known as 'Fly II' and was only available on Merchandise stores on her La Luna tour. It included a second disc of thirteen never before released tracks, or otherwise very rare. Until now, and that is where this fourth edition gets its appeal. No, it's not a glorious second disc full of goodies, but four bonus tracks, two of which did come from the rare second disc of Fly II. The other two "bonus" tracks? Complete waste of time.

So this is what this fourth edition has.

Okay, so "Eden" did give this 1995 CD a run for its money. But that was last year, since Sarah was beginning to gain more and more recognition. Thus, what once appeared to be a slump was a success thanks to the placement of the Andrea Bocelli collaboration known as "Time To Say Goodbye (his Con Te Partirò)" as the first track when this CD was re-released in 1996. It is that re-release version I have--at the moment.
"Dive" is predominantly New Agey, and I got used to it after a while. This one jumps from dance to rock to techno and back again. My favorite song on the CD is "A Question of Honour," the single for which is on the way (it's about damn time, too!). The remixes of that song, from what I hear, are techno, but I like the original version the best. Other hot hits include "How Can Heaven Love Me," "Something In The Air," "Heaven Is Here," "I Loved You," and (if I have space for it) "You Take My Breath Away." However, horrendous mixing dominates most of the album, whereas Andrea's "Romanza" isn't ruined by such mixing. Still, the hot hits ought to appear mainly to diehard Sarah Brightman fans.

ive only just found this and yet again miss Brightman has shown herself to be a great artist.The stand out track for me is The Fly which combines a angelic voice with a perfect musical backdrop.This is a good album but however not to the standard of Eden,which was just beautiful.On first listening to Fly you will think its good on further listening you will think its great ,maybe another Kate Bush in the making ,the voice on certain tracks are strikingly similar ,which can only be a good thing.
