Customer Review

on 25 October 2006
I entirely agree with the reviewer as to the sublime quality of the compositions on this disc. Even more so, these descriptions befit Max Richter's 'Blue Notebooks' recording which of late has become the most played disc in my collection. However, I award only three stars here because I am greatly disappointed with the duration time of thirty-seven minutes! Noteworthy also that 'Blue Notebooks' is only around forty minutes. Current technology allows up to eighty minutes on normal audio CD's. Accordingly, to issue discs with less than at least fifty minutes duration is simply a clever ruse by marketing conmen. A similar trick to the reissue of former discs with reshuffled tracks and DVD's extended with previously cut-out material!

Unless purchasers are made more aware of such ploys and thus become more discerning and deciding to avoid being deceived in this way, then collectors will continue to be milked of their hard earned cash!

Perhaps Amazon could take note of this comment, particularly if we customers all got together and requested that details of duration times etc were included in the initial details given.

Nevertheless, I think Max Richter's work is absolutely brilliant! Please give us more next time though!
