4.0 out of 5 stars Missed Opportunity?, 1 Nov 2011
Sarah McLachlan is stunning; I discovered her with the release of Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, often lauded by her fans as her greatest work. It's where the sound, the tone, her voice, the lyrics - songs about love, betrayal, obsession, grief, domestic abuse... - and simply everything come together to create this wonderful, gut-wrenching, beautiful masterpiece. Some say it's now dated, but I think it stands unique in its own space in time - and maybe even more powerful now than the early-mid 90s, as though it was unique even then, you rarely find anything near that calibre being produced these days... Each of her albums is like an evolution; debut Touch simply touches at the edges of her… Read more

I bought this CD player through a rival seller - but still returned it just a few days later. As soon as I got it out of the packaging, I was disappointed with the quality; it's very 'plastic'. It takes a moment to read a CD when you first put it in, it makes a racket as it plays, and what clinched it for me was the terrible sound quality - adding the Bass just makes it distorted. Pretty poor all round.
