Customer Review

on 20 May 2004
One major characteristic of Elvis Presley's films and in extend soundtracks is that they all travell around the globe.
The soundtracks in particular, based on the given locale, tend to mix international ethnic organs and orchestrations with the unmistakeable Elvis sound. Elvis appears to master even a tune with middle eastern feeling and make it western to our ears. That is debated as a plus or a minus by various critics.
Between the above-mentioned plus and minus is where a feeling stands in terms of bying this album. We do have some typical rockers like "Shake That Tamburine" and "Hey, Little Girl" that could be easily placed on any other Presley soundtrack or-not set. Then, we have some exciting songs in terms of having Elvis to stretch his performance standards and provide us a cult classic such as the "So Close, Yet So Far (From Paradise)" The list goes on with basic yet effective ballads such as "Kismet" and the now to be recognized as the most eastern in feeling and delivery from Presley "Golden Coins". Do listen to the overall slow tempo and the flute accompaniment to Presley's soft yet solid performance that is evidenced on the out-takes.
Still, the feeling of the album provides a somewhat tight concept, with few holes here and there, if ones seeks a middle estern Elvis. An Elvis that has equally if not better in the past has provided us with instant travelling experiences through previous soundtracks.
