5.0 out of 5 stars If you never find me, at least I found you!, 16 July 2002
This review is from: Poem (Audio CD)
And it is so true! Some of life's best secrets, remain secret, unless a few of us are lucky enough to find them. This CD is one such example of one of life's undiscovered gems! CD1 of this album is nothing short of a pure romantic's classic! It is worth the price for the lyrics alone! They are inspiring to the extreme! They touch, tease and caress every angle of love, passion and loss. Check out track 7......."im living in your dreams, I'm where you cannot be, i'm way out of your reach, i'm where you cannot see. Is it you, or is it me?" (been there?) Now add some of the most talented "dance" and "chilled" female vocalists of the last decade (Kirsty Hawkshaw of "BT" fame, Jennifer Mc Laren, Leigh Nash), mix superb production (I mean superb - the arrangements here would make Madonna weep!), and a little superlative song writing by Bill Leeb, and you have a CD written only because they had to write it, simple as that! The opening track "Innocente" is one of the few songs I know that is totally lyrical, yet the music and lyrics go to bed with each other in sublime fashion! Other highlights include the sheer passion of "Myth" (check out the amazing trumpet chorus line)and "a poem for byzantium" - a true love song in every sense of the word! POEM will not be to everyone's taste (Oasis fans forget it), but I challenge ANY reviewer who claims to like the new so fashionable "chilled" scene, and who can appreciate superb and diversified female lyrics without a hint of "folk", to buy this album. In a sense it is like true love.......once sampled, you will never forget it! An undiscivered masterpiece swimming high in a sea of medeoicre compilations (if you have never loved, this CD may just inspire you!). Brilliant.
