This album is startlingly original and imaginative. The combination of middle-eastern folk, orchestral, dance, operatic and pop styles creates a sound which you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
All of the songs on this album are good, however, the cover of Un Bel Di is delightfully weird, and like marmite you'll either love or loath it; the cover of What A Wonderful World is questionable, and Misere Mei slightly pointless. The other tracks are brilliant.
Harem, an upbeat track combines dance and ethnic styles, which compliment eachother perfectly, War is Over is beautiful and uplifting and features Kadim Al Sahir who sings in Arabic(?). Arabian Nights is eight minutes of your life well spent, it consists of five memorable parts, one of which is, I believe sung in sanskrit; and Mysterious Days is a lush Bollywood piece.
And not only that, Sarah Brightman's voice is brilliant.
This album is a very enjoyable mix of materials with Middle-Eastern feel. It starts off strong with the title song - Harem - and it sets off the album to a perfect start.
It also includes a few cover songs, most notably What a Wonderful World. Now, I have no idea who originally did this, but I heard a version sung by a male with a very husky voice. So I guess I'm a bit biased if I say that this is the superior version. Another cover is the song Beautiful. It is a very haunting piece that gave me the chills, and in fact it can still do.
Looking at the cover booklet, I saw that she co-wrote a few of the songs as well, including Free and the War is Over now. In my opinion, these two songs are the most powerful in the album. But then again, I might be a little biased :)
I highly recommend the purchase of this wonderful album, you wouldn't regret it. I'm loving it, and I've acquired some of her older works as I'm now a devoted fan. Although I've met a few of her older fans, those who prefer her musical pieces and they are not impressed much by Harem.
After seeing the video for "It's a Beautiful Day" on a satellite channel I knew I had to get the album. And it's really worth it. Whether you like Sarah or not, this disc has some beautiful tracks. The opening song, Harem sets you up for 14 exotic, delicious tracks that show her voice off perfectly.
The fact that we also get to hear Ofra Haza (who is greatly missed) on the "Mysterious Days" track only adds to the reasons why you should buy this disc. I can't stop playing it
Sarah Brightman is exquisitely beautiful and she looks like some flight-of-fancy princess from the Arabian Nights, or Scheherazade herself, in this DVD, and I can't take my eyes off her - despite the fact that I'm female and as straight as they come.
The video production of Harem is top-notch; it has been extraordinarily well planned and the attention to detail is stunning. The result is a visual feast that really is dizzying. Every track has its own flavour and 'look' and the DVD as a production is like a banquet of delicate and intoxicating courses - all, that is, except for the baffling inclusion of a track from Sarah's "La Luna" tour which annoys me every time for pointlessly breaking the continuity of Harem.
The musical production is good too from what I can tell (I'm a choreographer but I'm married to a Sound Designer so I do have half a clue). The Lyrics in many of the songs are laughably weak from an artistic point of view ("What you never know can't hurt you / what you never know can't lie / what you never know can't desert you / what you never know can't make you cry" - must have taken about 15 minutes to come up with that), but if you consider that Sarah is trying to appeal to the widest cross-section of people possible, then I guess she has probably done that by making the songs easy to understand. So it's only a downside if you try to look at Harem as Art rather than Entertainment.
Entertaining it certainly is: as I've already been waxing lyrical, the whole thing is an absolute delight for the senses.Read more ›
When I purchased the albumn, my appreciation grown and bought other albumns from Sarah, and im hooked on it.

Sadly, I was disappointed with this DVD. Nothing wrong with the music and Sarah was as good as ever, but the visual technical standard left much to be desired. Read morePublished on 10 Mar. 2011 by R. C. Harris
I love to listen to this album. I haven't been a Sarah Brightman fan, as I find her very difficult to watch, but would not deny that her voice is wonderful. Read morePublished on 29 Dec. 2010 by Amazon Customer
