Michelle McLaughlin & Glen Gabriel – en review
August 2, 2011 Leave a comment
Vi kom precis hem från en mycket spännande resa till San Diego Comic Con och Los Angeles. Jag har fotograferat non-stop under i stort sett hela resan, men de bilderna kommer senare när artisterna godkänt dem.
Den här otroligt fina review’n väntade på oss här hemma. Så jag tänkte skryta lite om min man här!
“Oh, how I adore the Bonus Track, a second outing for “So Long, Mr. Selfish”, but this time orchestrated and with not a piano in sight. It is orchestrated by Glen Gabriel (take a bow, young man) and captures all the anger of the earlier incarnation, but even more so- especially with the addition of the choir at the end, bringing the main section to a dramatic conclusion before the piece concludes on an achingly beautiful but very sombre note as the awful reality has set in. A dilemma for me was whether or not to mention this, but I shall go for it! Having listened to this CD dozens of times in the car in preparation for reviewing this album, a strange thing occurred. I found myself adding vocals to the chorus: two words of three syllables each time, followed by four words of seven syllables. What these words are, I have to keep to myself, but let’s just say I hope that none of the passing motorists travelling in the other direction were lip-readers…
I cannot praise this CD highly enough. It is simply wonderful, and I love it from beginning to end. It is somewhat ironic that in a time of great crisis, Michele McLaughlin has been stirred into creating what is undoubtedly her finest CD to date. I give it my highest recommendation, and I am sure that many listeners will be able to empathise with the whirlwind of emotions experienced by the composer. It might even help them through the healing process. I find myself connecting to the music at a level rarely experienced by me before.
In all respects, a CD of the highest quality. Don’t miss out on this very special album.”
