How About I Be Me And You Be You ~ Sinead O'Connor
5.0 out of 5 stars A great album, 5 Jun 2013
Forget everything and listen to this ablum as if you didn't know who was on it. From the toe tapping singalong happinness of '4th and Vine' to the searing insight of 'V.I.P' on celebrity culture, it gives a journey through the emotional and spiritual. Yes, there's some pain, but its tempered with joy and a mature and thoughtful approach that makes this album a repeat listen.
Whatever you think about Sinead O'Connor, you have to admit she puts her heart and soul into what she does and her voice...well, her voice is genuine, unique and hers.

Classical Indian Flute and Violin Vol. II With Vir&hellip ~ Music for Deep Relaxation
5.0 out of 5 stars Flauting on clouds, 5 Jun 2013
I don't have volume 1, but fell in love with a track on you tube (track 6, Raga Sarang Kauns) that had been posted to advertise the Music for Deep Relaxation CD.

The musicians really are masters - VK Raman in the Carnatic style with Bansuri and assorted flutes, Srikanth with an incredibly sensitive and measured accompanying violin that is so haunting… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music, 5 Feb 2013
Literally can't stop playing this album. Haunting and beguiling as you'd expect from Dead Can Dance, but very layered - no two listens are the same. Wonderful album from a band that transcended genre a while ago. Interesting sounds (Lisa Gerrard's voice is as sublime as ever), ideas and images, drawing from Ancient Greek concepts and the collective unconscious....it's that kind of album. Truly brilliant.
