5.0 out of 5 stars Original, mesmerising, threatening, powerful - explores new territory, 28 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Circus Live (MP3 Download)
I agree with the previous reviewers. I bought this album after seeing John Cale performing Venus in Furs on TV. Previously I knew nothing about him (and very little about Venus in Furs too for that matter). His voice captivated me and the refreshing originality of his lyrics and the sound of the electric violin made me hasten to find out more about him. This is a fantastic album and incredible value as an MP3 download. There are some tracks that aren't quite to my taste, to be honest, but most of them are brilliant with a strong classical influence thinly disguised as rock. For me the best tracks are Venus in Furs and Buffalo Ballet. If you're a hardcore ABBA fan, and you love pretty words and pretty tunes, this may not be quite your cup of tea otherwise it's a musical experience that's different and well worth a digression if you want to break out of the musical comfort zone.
