This album basically has lots of tracks recorded by Westenra that are otherwise scattered all over the place. To put this into perspective, if you want to buy all of these tracks without buying this album, you will have to buy up to twelve albums to make up the tracklisting. You see how awesome this album is now?

So what are these tracks exactly? They are several projects that Westenra has contributed to over the years - mostly film and TV soundtracks, but there are also tracks from her other albums such as 'Prayer', 'May It Be' and 'Summer Rain', whilst the likes of 'Wiegenlied', 'Bridal Ballad' and 'You Are Water' could only previously be found on certain editions of her previous albums. The rest of the tracks were a matter of buying individual soundtracks or another artist's album (such as 'The Last Rose of Summer' with Celtic Woman and 'There's A Sparkle In Your Eyes' with Helmut Lotti).

Considering that the material of this album is coming from left, right and centre, how does it stand as an album with apparently no cohesive plan or theme? Surprisingly well. The pitfall I have with the majority of Westenra's albums is that they tend to sound like one song from start to finish, with all the same people writing and arranging throughout, but the diversity that this album has gives it a leg up. Each new song is refreshing and distinctive, and celebrates a variety of styles. When else will Westenra have esteemed film composers such as James Horner and Debbie Wiseman writing music for her?

There are only a few songs that I really skip here. The songs that she has selected from her albums would have been my choices exactly. 'Prayer' and 'Summer Rain' are fantastic songs.

This is a must have for any Hayley fan, it has so many good tracks that are from many different places and there are so many good ones, as well as a few which are from treasure and odyssey albums.

Track by track:

1. Prayer- this one was originally on Odyssey and is a very good cover, one of my favourite Hayley songs 4.5/5
2. Last Rose of Summer- this is from when Hayley was with Celtic Woman and this is a very good version 4/5
3. Listen to the Wind- this is one of the best Hayley songs in my opinion, I love the lyrics 5/5
4. May it Be- this is also from Odyssey and also a very good cover, it really suits her voice 4/5
5. Weigenlied- Odyssey, lovely german lullaby, I love to hear Hayley singing in German 5/5
6. Jekyll- this is a vocalise and is the theme to te BBC TV series, I think that no one can do a Vocalise like Hayley and this is really good, quite menacing and the orchestration is amazing 5/5
7. Here Beside Me- This is from Mulan II and is very nice, I wish it was longer! 4.5/5
8. Bridal Ballad- this is also on Odyssey and I love this one, the lyrics are an Edgar Allen Poe poem and I love the way it is arranged and of course Hayley sings amazingly, it really shows her range 5/5
9. Flood- this is another Vocalise, another amazing track 5/5
10- I'm Kissing You- this has to be the best track on this album- amazing, I love the lyrics and Hayley sings with so much emotion 5/5
11. Tonight- this is from the anniversary recording of West Side Story and again this shows off Hayley's amazing range, she makes a really good Maria, the only downside is I feel that sometimes the orchestra and her duet partner drown her out 3.5/5
12.

I have been listening and watching Hayley Westenra ever since she appeared on Celtic Woman at Slane Castle. I have most of her DVD's and CD's and watch and listen to them most every day. Hayley has the most beautiful, perfect pitched, and soft voice I have heard in years and I have been singing for over 60 years. I will continue to buy her CD' as long as she records them.

For fans of Hayley I would recommend this album. The material on this album is a mixture of tracks taken from Odyssey and Pure but there are also 5 or 6 tracks which are unavailable elsewhere. For this reason it was worth buying - although it was expensive. My favourite songs, which you cannot buy elsewhere, on this album are: 'Last Rose of Summer,' 'Listen to the Wind', Flood, 'I'm Kissing You.' You are water is probably my favourite song although the Odyssey USA album has this on it. Overall, another excellent album.
