5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, 18 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Endless River (Audio CD)
When one has all but given up yearning for a new release from musical legends (death takes us eventually), along comes 'The Endless River'. Sublime does not do this recording any justice at all. I (almost) made the mistake of inserting the CD into my car's audio system; only to realise that I was starting to drift off the road as the music broke over me; not a good space when one is driving! What has been created is music which sinks into one's soul. Yes, there are times when I was (almost) waiting for the voices to break in. When they did ('Louder than Words'), it made complete sense. A goodbye.

Loreena McKennitt's voice remains as haunting as it ever was.

Jasper Carrott is funny beyond explanation. I bought this DVD some time back but only (trying) to view it now. It is not Region 2. In fact the frustration is that it did not play on any of my DVD devices that play Region 2 discs. What gives?

3.0 out of 5 stars The extras..., 26 Jun 2014
In Their Own Voices, a new piece combining interviews with the Beatles from 1964 with behind-the-scenes footage and photos
•You Can’t Do That: The Making of “A Hard Day’s Night,” a 1994 documentary program by producer Walter Shenson
•Things They Said Today, a 2002 documentary about the film featuring Lester, music producer George Martin, writer Alun Owen, cinematographer Gilbert Taylor, and others
Why do the extras on the US version differ to those on the UK version? The non-inclusion of the Running Standing film is a travesty. I have an 'all-region' blu ray player. I'll be purchasing the US version

•New piece about Lester’s early work, featuring a new audio interview with the director
•The Running Jumping and Standing Still Film (1959), Lester’s Oscar-nominated short featuring Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan
•Anatomy of a Style, a new piece on Lester’s approach to editing
•New interview with Mark Lewisohn, author of Tune In: The Beatles: All These Years—Volume One
•Deleted scene
•Trailers
•One Blu-ray and two DVDs, with all content available in both formats
•PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Howard Hampton

Vangelis is the master of music which touches places most other music cannot reach. That is not an indictment of music in general. Just the way in which I feel when listening to material such as this. 'To The Unknown Man' remains an opus...

For anyone who is a Vangelis or Jon Anderson fan; buy it. If you are not; try it. It may change your world...

I had heard a few tracks from Hugh Laurie and not impressed enough to purchase CDs. This blu ray is something else. If you enjoy good music - no matter the genre - buy it.

I have always liked Brightman's singing; probably after "Phantom". However I have bought few of her recordings. No real reason; just did not. Maybe as I had many compilations which included her. With this I saw the film clip of "Angel" on YouTube. On the strength of that I bought this CD. I put it on my CD player without looking at the song/composer list. The final track "Closer" had me reaching for the cover notes. You know the feeling; when one hears a recognisable tune in an unrecognisable setting; Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" is an iconic music composition. "Closer" uses 8+ minutes based on one piece of that tune.
If this CD had contained just "Angel" and "Closer", it would be worth the price of admission alone. That it contains far more...maybe it is Brightman's cosmonaut training...maybe not. This CD is a departure from the norm and for me, the best CD she has ever done. Then - on the DVD - is her version of Jon Anderson/Van Gelis' "So Long ago, So Clear".
What more could one want?
