5.0 out of 5 stars Still as good as ever
In the late 80's I picked up the Blue Nile album Walk Across the Rooftops and it became one of my 'must take with me to college' tapes.

For some reason I never looked to see what had happened to this band and just assumed they would have split up. That was until I heard the recent excellent duet by Texas 'Sleep' with Blue Nile's Paul Buchanan. A search on...

1.0 out of 5 stars Review of the CD, 4 Jun 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: High (Audio CD)
I love this album, musically it's fantastic and it plays fine on my old CD player and even in the car - but it won't rip.

I've been transferring the majority of my music collection to a windows home server device using dbpoweramp so that I can use them with my Linn DS music streamer, but this CD refuses to work.

I have DVD-ROM drive and it's possible that a CD-ROM drive may work differently, but it's a real pain - so be warned if you have any kind of digital stream player or multiroom system like Sonos you want to use it with.

....

With iso buster, there seems to be 3 sessions. The first has 10 tracks, the 2nd only contains track 10 and the 3rd session contains 98 tracks with no data and track 99 with 450MB ish.

Follow up - DVD drive can no longer be recognized after several attempts at reading this disc. Tray ejects sometimes, then snaps back in when this CD is loaded and vanishes from the list of available drives in software.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection, 25 July 2004

Hugh (London, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: High (Audio CD)
This is possibly the most sensual album I have ever heard.
The Blue Nile, or The Nile, take their time between releasing albums, five years between their first two, but they are always worth waiting for, and this is no exception.
Paul Buchanan is arguably the best male vocalist in Britain today, his style makes you smile helplessly. The trademark groove is there in certain songs while the love songs are again far superior to anything else anyone has ever released.
An album to curl up on the sofa with, the lights dimmed and in the arms of the one you love. It is the PERFECT soundtrack. If this album doesn't cause you to melt you have no soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars The return of a great band., 23 July 2004
This review is from: High (Audio CD)
Ok , I haven't heard this yet but I was astonished to see a new Blue Nile album is due in August.
One of the least prolific bands ever (just 3 albums released since 1985) , the Blue Nile are a really class act.
If you like beautiful, powerful, haunting music then please listen to this great band.
