My hands were shaking so hard with anticipation placing the CD into the slot, I was sobbing uncontrollably, my body convulsing in a mixture of ecstasy and euphoria.
When the first track played my body went into anaphylactic shock. I came round 2 weeks later lying in a pool of my own tears.
It literally makes you want to scratch your ears off in panic, just so you can place them closer to the speakers.

One word: Totally Faultless

From the delicate strands, between two minds they weave their mesh: a blanket to warm the soul.

Oh. My. God. The reviews of this tragedy are a hundred million times better than the album! I have been chuckling all week at them.

Right, back to the album. I am not a worshipper at the cult of Andre - can these people not see that he has all the life and imagination of a sex doll?? - nor am I one of those, like, really tanned and, like, fabulous Katie Price wannabes. I heard a frightening sample of this album played on Have I Got News For You and - when the audience had stopped screaming - I suddenly found my mind wiped blank, my personality drained, my interests segued to the fake tan section in Boots. I just had to hear this for myself. They say there's something attractive about danger, soemthing oddly compelling about risk - I was about to take the biggest risk of my 40 years on this planet and there was no-one to hear me scream.

I bought it in HMV and took it out of the shop in a brown paper bag. I pretended it was a bottle of meths as owning up to the real contents would've been too embarrassing. I felt the streets grow oddly silent as I walked home with the sh***e - sorry, the album - under my arm. Children ceased to cry, dogs stopped their barking, housewives collected up their washing and ran indoors. It was like the borough of North Tyneside realised something mystical was afoot.

My Mother was hushed into a reverent silence as I placed the disc upon the turn-table. There then followed 1 min 45 seconds (that's all I could stand) of grunting, wailing, and shrieking never previously heard outside of Edinburgh zoo when those Pandas finally got it on. I have known pain - I've listened to Westlife - but this was like being present at a public execution. A Whole New World? More like the Four Pimped Horses of the Apocalypse.

Music can never be the same again after this. In hushed tones, the young ones will whisper to us: "Did THEY really make a whole album?" and we will have to remind them that the names of THEM must never be spoken even in whispers. I hear The Samaritans are setting up a Crisis LIne for anyone who has heard the full album and lived through it. Oh, and there's a Panorama Special on TV tonight - "Katie and Peter - Where Did All The Baby-Oil Go?"

I bought this album for my Fiancee's 25th birthday and I know she was greatly looking forward to it. However, a few days later, she suffered a brain hemmorage and was rushed to hospital. For many days she lay in a coma and I feared the worst. And then, late one night, I began playing this album to her and the moment she heard Katie Price's amazing voice her eyes began to flutter. By the end of track 3 she was sitting upright in bed, tossing her hair - and by track 5 we were making love like wild stallions. Needless to say, for both of us, this timeless and extraordinary album is little short of a miracle!

PS: Since writing this review, I have learned that my fiancee DID listen to the album many weeks before and this may, in fact, have caused her brain to nearly explode. However, this has done nothing to reduce my admiration for Ms Price and I look forward to her next album - 'Songs for Cross Dressing Cage Fighters' - with great relish!

If you can imagine a soothing blend of jojoba oils, vanilla, and WD40 being poured into both ear holes simultaneously, then you will have only been able to scratch the surface of the feast of pleasure that is Katie And Pete's "A Whole New World" Album. Similar in it's ambition to Wagner's "ring cycle" but less German, "A Whole New World" is one of the best sound combinations that has ever been recorded. I also found the case very useful for replacing a tile that had been missing in my bathroom for the past two and a half years. A TRIUMPH!
*ESPECIALLY SUITABLE FOR THOSE WITH TILED BATHROOMS*

I can only thank god that he brought together two people of such incredible talent. On first listening to this album I was so overcome that I lost control of my bladder. I'm buying a copy of this album for everyone I know as I feel everyone must experience this musical odyssey. Anyone who thinks it is less than perfect is clearly a complete PHILISTINE.

Hello, I am being Professorial Music lecturer at the University of Munich. I have been devoted my life to the works of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart etc but now I am putting these opuses in the bin, for I have now discovering musical genius of an unheard of level! Katie Price is better than Callas, I just am not aware of where she is getting such huge lungpower! Please buying this album and discover the forces of musical intellect beyond the commonplace.

I didn't know these two artists previously, and bought this album on the strength of the many excellent reviews. I've been suffering from a protracted bout of constipation and thought that this album might help me with my problem. I have to say that it was of no help at all. In fact I found the whole thing a difficult listen and, if truth be told, somewhat troubling. I listened to it twice but instead of the release I had hoped for all I was left with was a profound sense of world-weariness. I did break wind lightly during "Islands in the Stream" however so perhaps that's something. :)

Well, I have just listened to the album!

In this age of manufactured pop and "celebrities" with more money than talent this cd was a refreshing change that only be desribed in one word:

Wow.

As someone who has spent 20+ yrs learning to play a musical instrument I was so amazed by the talent on display here that I have just amputated all my fingers as I will never reach this level of virtuoisty. I have managed to type this with one of my severgdd digits held in my mouth.Sorry but it is very difiicult to type with a blood obscured keyboard and tears running down my face.

The song "Islands in the Stream" was so moving it has made me take up necrophilia.

If Van Gogh was alive today he would cut both his ears off. Once infused with this nugget of pure musical genius everything else you listen to will sound shallow and pretentious.

I fervently believe that this album is quite simply the pinnacle of man's musical acheivement - the opening track alone moved me in a way that I had previously thought only a chicken vindaloo could. By the final track, my sphincter became so dilated that I am now doubly incontinent, but that's but a minor irritation when weighed against my pleasure at hearing Peter and Katies magnum opus. I can honestly say, that whenever I take a dump in the future I will always think of our orange demi-gods.
