A special album!,
This review is from: The Futurist (Audio CD)
A special album for your special collection. That's probably the best way to describe it... Let's be honest - fans of Britney aren't going to buy it.
I also bought it on the strength of Robert Downey Jr's performance on Jonathan's Ross show. And I'm not disappointed. Music is wonderfully rich and complex, without being pretentious. Vocals are OK - not brilliant, but much, much better then average. The cast of musicians on the album is very impressive, which only makes it an even more worthwhile piece of music.
Very good production encourages it to be played loud - and do play it louder then usual, otherwise some of the quieter and brilliant layers of music may disappear.
Overall? Buy it, especially at this price. You will not be disappointed, but be prepared for it to grow on you. I wanted to give it 4.5 stars, but Amazon don't have this rating, so 5 was a much better choice then 4!
