This album just blew me away - I am NOT a pop music fan - my favourite groups are Procol Harum and Yes - but I did buy this because the final track is "Ready to Go Home" latterly recorded by prog-heads "Asia" on their great "Aura" album and I was simply intrigued to hear the original on Morten's album. What an amazing surprise. I was astounded at how good this album is, a really dark and introspective piece of work. The album peaks at Track 6 and gets better and better. And extremely classy production by Christopher Neil, listen to the quality of the piano (always a test) on the beautiful "lay me Down tonight". What a special album and such a surprise for me...

This album is an absolute gem. Having been a fan of A-ha since they burst onto the music scene in 1985, I was extremely curious to see what sort of music Morten Harket would produce without the strong song-writing talents of Paul Waaktaar-Savoy and Magne Furuhomen. I was not disappointed and more than a little surprised. 'Wild Seed' is one of the few albums around which instantly impresses with the quality of its music. Anyone expecting a throw back to 1980s pop will not get what they are looking for. However, if you are in search of an album chock full of original, meaningful lyrics and simple yet incredibly strong melodies, this is the one for you. At times reminiscent of Peter Gabriel's material, the album deserved more commercial success than it had. Harket can interpret songs like very few others and can give the simplest song a breath-taking edge with his talent for timing. With this CD, Harket has shown that he is much more than just a great voice. He is a highly talented artist. For a taste of his brilliance, try 'Burning out again', 'Brodsky tune', 'Los Angeles' and 'Ready to go home'. I will certainly be buying his other two albums on the strength of this one.

A couple of the tracks take a bit of getting used to ( lord, east timor etc.) but generally an amazing album. The harmonisation and equal vocal balance of the 'Los Angeles' chorus is just superb. Buy it!

I have always liked the music of a-ha but did not realise this album existed until 2 weeks ago.
A cracking album, worth buying just for 'Los Angeles'.

Spanish Steps, Half in Love..., East Timor, A Kind of Christmas Card, and Lay me Down Tonight are all powerful tracks. 'Los Angeles', meanwhile, is entirely wonderful - the chorus demonstrating the range of Harket's voice perfectly. I can't quite get into a couple of the tracks (5 and 11) but no album is perfect. Don't miss out.

Hi there, Mark's wife here. Bringing up my two beautiful girls had left me little time to listen to music, watch TV etc. It was only when my mom and sister in law texted me to demand that I watch Loose Women, as Morten was appearing on it (they both know how much I've always liked him!) that inspired me to order this album online...as soon as I put it on, I just melted. Morten's ability to adapt his voice to each song is simply breathtaking, from his raspy notes in A Kind Of Christmas Card, the low, sultry background tones in Tell Me What You See, to his heart rending harmony in the chorus of Los Angeles, (which I must say is quite simply the most beautiful song I have ever heard), this album stirred me beyond words. My only regret is that I never discovered it sooner. Thank you Morten for awakening my love of music.

This is my favourite album of all time! I accidentally bought it for a bargain in 1997 on a stock clearout somewhere - and i was completely astonished... In a way, all songs are masterpieces, but Spanish Steps, Wild Seed, Tell Me What You See & Ready To Go Home are my all-time favourites.

This for me is up there in my favourite albums of all time! this truly is an exceptional collection of songs of which I have only recently stumbled upon and I am so glad that I did!

I think that these are some of the best songs: Spanish Steps Half In Love Half In Hate Los Angeles Lay Me Down Tonight Tell Me What You See Stay Lord Ready To Go Home.

This album stirs up so much emotion! Harket's voice is outstanding and some of the tracks are deeply haunting and moving!

I am just disappointed I never discovered this musical gem sooner!

Great Album from one of the world's finest Voices ever to grace the Human Race!

Well donr again Morten Harket!
