I had heard this album on the radio. It has all the familiar tracks I was after and as far as the music goes, it is all there if you're a fan. However, the sound quality is very poor (no, it's not my CD player-I checked!) It has a muffled quality which is very annoying; so much so, I think I will have to look for another recording of my favourites, as it really spoils the experience. Disappointing.

I heard a track from this album on Classic fm and thought 'I must have it'! Went straight onto Amazon and ordered it, when it came I played it immediately and it's all as good as the one track I'd heard. It's very relaxing but much more than just background music.

I have been hearing Le Onde on the radio for several weeks and always missed the song title or performer. It is one of my most favorite tunes at the moment and was delighted to hear a radio presenter finally refer to the album title! downloaded immediately and was not disappointed. This album is a must. Beautiful piano moods, just lush. I would highly recommend.

I first heard this on classic fm and had to buy it. It is beautiful and I use it to sooth my baby to sleep having listened to it whilst I was pregnant. Very relaxing.

You'd be hard pressed not to like any of the music Ludovico Einaudi composes and plays even if you're not a classical music lover. His simple arrangements and keyboard skills are second to none that enable him to produce fabulous pieces time and time again that appeal to anyone. I like many types of music from the whole spectrum and don't usually lean towards anything classical per se, but, when it comes to Einaudi's music I can't get enough. Sit there and listen in a room or put your headphones on and get personal, you can't get enough. Lift your spirit for the day and listen to he Islands album or for that matter any of his other albums.

I love it.What more can I say.The music is simply beautiful.This is largely a compilation album I believe being a newbie fan of Einaudi after hearing Nightbook and discovering it's composer.If you love exciting,flowing,elegant piano full of passion this is sure to stir your soul and lift your spirits and take you on a wonderful journey.
