3.0 out of 5 stars Tracks 1, 2 and 11, 5 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Max Richter: Blue Notebooks (Audio CD)
From all the five star reviews here on Amazon, my expectations turned out to be too high for this album. Tracks 1, 2 and 11 are very good. The rest of the songs aren't bad, but for the most part they start off promising and then fail to go anywhere. The clicking type writer is overused and distracts more than it adds.

Along a similar vein, I believe fans of tracks 1, 2 and 11 will be much better served by Brian Eno's "The Pearl" or "Music for Airports", Harold Budd's "Perhaps", Goldmund's "Corduroy Road" (available for download on iTunes), Arvo Pärt's "Alina" or "Miserere", Peter Gabriel's "Passion", or Hauschka's "Ferndorf".

I agree that this album is a mixed bag (especially compared to 'Memoryhouse'), but surely 'Vladimir's Blues' deserves to be included in your list of very good tracks?
For what it's worth, I also like your list of 'further listening'.
