5.0 out of 5 stars Complete Classic 11 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album when it came out and it has stood the test of time amazingly well. Not only is it still utterly superb to listen to but I continue to use it as a reference disc when looking for new hi-fi. It is very well recorded with a particularly strong and gorgeously textured bass line (important to me as a bass player). I can't recommend this album highly enough, but please don't go by the 'through-a-sock' recordings above - they do it no justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb pop music album 1 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favourite records form the 90s and it has stood the test of time well. Tasmin Archer and her excellent, rocky band deliver a set of 11 brilliant, catchy pop tunes. It is a stunning debut album, displaying all the maturity of an artist well into their record producing career. It won great accolades at the time and deservedly so. It sounds as good today as it did then.

Unfortunately, the follow up "Bloom" lacked the same spontaneity and catchiness and the band's playing on that second album was not as enthralling - I was disappointed with it and lost touch with her after that.

"Great Expectations", however, is still well worth seeking out - difficult to select a favourite tune from it as they are all so good, but "Sleeping Satellite", "The Higher You Climb" and Somebody's Daughter" would be vying for my top spot.

5.0 out of 5 stars not just a sleeping satelite 6 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album has really suprised me, I bought it only remembering the hit Sleeping Satelite but now that song is outshone by a great number of the others. I paticularly like the songs "Hero", "Ripped Inside", "When It Comes Don To It" and the shocking yet thought provoking "In Your Care". There are songs here for everyone.... full of angst and tranquility alike......buy it and you will be pleasantly suprised.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very nice Album. 5 April 2010
By FAMOUS NAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mini-Disc
I had a rule years ago that if an Artist or Band released more than two Singles from the same Album that I liked - then I would buy that Album. This was from a time (1992/3) when music was really deteriorating (and has never really picked up since), yet I liked Tasmin Archer's Singles. Granted that records were then getting rather higher than they would have done in the Charts just a few years before, (this was due to sales being down - and music competition poor) but she had a Number One: 'Sleeping Satellite' (featured here on this Album) and several more Top 40 Singles. Actually; I preferred one of the follow-ups to the Number One which did the least Chart-wise; 'Arienne' - reaching only Number thirty.

This is a 'nice' Album - whatever happened to her? Well; she made a follow-up to this some three years later called: 'Bloom' which in my opinion is probably even better than this - but it hardly received any publicity at all...

Check it out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Arrienne? Keep it to yourself. 29 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's a good album. Songs like Sleeping Sattelite and Somebody's Daughterreally hold the album together, although if there were one song that Iwere to avoid, it would be Arrienne. Still, well worth a flutter.
