Customer Review

on 13 February 2004
Personally, I think this album has been incorrectly classified. Is it classical - yes, in many places. Is it pop - verging on. Is it rock - definitely makes you move, both physically and emotionally. Is it a harp album - well, she's playing one extremely well, but not like most would expect a harpist to play traditionally through the entire length of the performance. This album should be classified as Fusion as it sets out to stretch the barriers, and in challenging them and being an opening portfolio of Catrin's undoubted talents will disappoint the listener in places - but that's like saying you can’t find something to eat at a 5star buffet, or that you loved everything. If this album disappoints anywhere, it is in the over use of the samples and modern mixing to get the listener between the diversity of music and styles that is used here track to track. Also, remember that Catrin is still in her early 20’s – it comes across as great fun to play something you love in a way which you and your generation will relate to: and in allowing for that the listener will only enjoy this album more. Buy this album to blast away your conceptions of what a Harp is and how it can be used; buy this album to hear undoubted talent; buy this album to play next to your favourite dance, moods, chill out or classical music as it will sit exceptionally well – but don’t buy it to meet your classic purist expectations. That will be done later when we have seen and bought in to this exceptional talent, and it has been allowed to develop
