For all music lovers,
This review is from: Puccini: Great Opera Arias (Audio CD)
I had wanted a La Bohome CD but couldn't find one so was 'directed' to this Puccini CD and it is lovely - now one of my favourites. You don't need to be an opera buff (I'm not) to just enjoy the beautiful music and listen to some of the most brilliant singers in the world. Excellent value and I would highly recommend.

Not enough detail! Who sings what from what? Obviously La Bohome, but what else? Solos, duets? How many tracks? Puccini wrote many operas.

Surely these details should be included in the Product Details or with the Track Listings? Sadly they rarely are, but that's not the fault of the reviewer whose role is merely to give an opinion of the work on offer. The fact that some reviewers have the time and patience to write all the album notes that the CD producers cannot be bothered to do is a welcome bonus but if you expect everyone to do that, I think the number of CD reviews will be considerably reduced!

Yes, all the details should be supplied but many times they are not. But for those who have many CDs and DVDs they don't want more of what they already have, just differently packaged. Customers have to rely on those who have already purchased the item. 5 stars doesn't mean anything without more information. Some DVDs and CDs don't have any review so the buyer has nothing to go on but a review that also has no information is as useful as no information. I have no interest in buying this item until I have more information. I have complete performances of Tosca, La Boheme Madam Butterfly and Turandot so I am interested to know what more this CD has to offer. The aim of a review is to be helpful to other buyers. This sreview is not helpful to me.

I can't hear the music for the loud whining sounds...
It is DEFINITELY not up to a reviewer to provide track listings etc. If in doubt, don't buy. Or take a gamble. Simple as that.

Seems you are a multimillionaire and you just buy anything you want. I'm on a medical benefit, I have to know what it is on a CD or DVD before I buy. I can't afford to gamble that it isn't something I already have with a different front cover and title.
You are a very one dimensional person where information isn't important, you just buy something because it looks good, or you just want to have it even though you already have 10. Your day will come when you will have to budget and sacrifice one thing for another. Not like now where you could just buy the whole shop and throw out what you don't want. Money must grow on trees in your compound.
The whining sounds are coming from you Turner. Whining about people wanting information about the product they are buying. Imagine buying a mobile phone and the seller says "I have a black one and a white one, which do you what?
Wanting information, is common sense, it makes the world go round.
Marie Anne says "Surely these details should be included in the Product Details or with the Track Listings?" That is a fact. You want to sell something then tell us why we should buy it.
As for the Reviewer they can write what they like, but a little information for other buyers wouldn't hurt!
