"You know what you are getting..."
on 25 June 2013
A previous reviewer noted that "you know what you are getting..." when you buy this CD. Indeed, you do. Like all Sarah's previous albums, it's beautifully performed and produced - it's a flawless product so I can't give it less than 4 stars. However, we have been over this ambient, moody & ethereal territory with Sarah so many times. I just wish that she would do something a little different for a change.
This is her first collaboration with producer Mike Hedges. I think she made the wrong choice as his work here is very much in the Frank Peterson vein, which we have come to know over the years. I think she needs a new direction / new sound / new something(!) to surprise us and move things forward. Notwithstanding all its qualities, there is something a little jaded about Dreamchaser.
This didn't come shrink wrapped and had an ugly adhesive barcode label which couldn't be removed and ruined the case. Dumb idea!
