5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Milestones (Audio CD)
The second Jazz album I ever bought on vinyl about 25 years ago. A truly great set of tunes.

It just sounds fantastic in mono!

Well worth it if great sound quality is important to you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Better Than Kind Of Blue - But Very Good, 15 July 2012
This review is from: Milestones (Audio CD)
Reading the wowed existing reviews piqued my interest in buying this, now (mid-2012) the CD is at a reasonable price. I'm not an out and out jazz fan, nor a musician. I just like music, and have a large and varied collection where I'm now 'filling in the gaps'. Thought this slightly different viewpoint would add to the reviews. Firstly I have to beg to differ with the lead reviewer, whilst bowing to their detailed knowledge. For most people, Kind Of Blue will be Miles' best, if say you are only going to own one album of his (I have 6, all recommended to me). It is indeed 'more lyrical and profound', and more rounded and consistent than Milestones. Milestones is absolutely classily played by maestros of the genre, as explained by the many existing technical reviews. But as a listening experience it is patchy and dare I say it, a bit too 'relaxed' for its own good - doesn't keep my interest throughout. My conclusion - well worth buying at the price if you are filling in, or are a jazz fan interested in the development of Miles' music and exploring the direction in which he and his great band mates took jazz. Just not, for me, deserving of the more action-packed superlatives such as 'exhilarating'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miles' Tones!, 16 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Milestones (Audio CD)
Whether you are a jazz newcomer, or a hardened jazz fanatic, this album will blow you away. Buy it, listen to it on your personal hi - fi walking down the street and it will make you soar above the clouds. It's cool, joyous sounds will make you see just what made this man the jazz legend he so rightly deserves. If you haven't hear Miles before, this is a great intro to him and his music.

The service from the supplier was very good and the CD is a classic, "must have" for any jazz fan. Miles Davies and his group at their very best.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC, 28 May 2004
This review is from: Milestones (Audio CD)
Where do I begin?! What a blast; exhilarating, exciting and plenty to get your cerebral listening gear into. The first cut (Dr Jackle). Introduces the album very succintly and it does not let up from there. To avoid analytical nonsense; it just sounds great, and surprises and pleases at every turn. Sometimes its a full blown solo which raises the goodbumps and sometimes just a single note chord from the comping piano played in perfect time which does the business. Just get the disc and enjoy a high octane ride! In so many ways this album is great.
