    Horrid!

    This cd is absolutely HORRID! I usually love Sarah Brightman but this was AWFUL! This cd showed none of her usual prowess. Actually I found the music quite cheezy. This is far too low of a level for a voice as great as hers. I have loved Sarah Brightman until now, I hope she doesn't continue in this path!!! There are only 2 decent songs on here, Free and The War Is Over. Otherwise a complete dissapointment! :(

    Sadly hoodwinked into buying this CD

    Full of good symphonic musical quality, still lacking in the "exotic" & authentic tones which it is supposed to have. This soprano sounds forced & falsetto. Leave the vocals out & you may have a decent new age "sound of the world". If you are looking for an "Arabic" feel, try Shakira's album "Laundry Service" track 11...that's how it should sound.

    Awful

    Looked forward to this and was very disappointed. Doesn't deserve one star. I am returning it.

    Oh, the humanity!

    Harem, Ms. Brightman's latest album, can very well be considered more offensive to the Arab people than most post-9/11 ethnic slurs. This disc combines shrill vocals, forced vibrato, and apalling instrumentals to create something more ghastly and embarrassing than I can describe in such an abbrieviated review. "Wonderful World" has a horror all its own, one that could be grounds for a lawsuit brought against Ms. Brightman by the heirs of Louis Armstrong. After this assault on the ears, it is wise to turn off the CD player altogether. The rest of the album is merely the strident voiced singer's obnoxious theatricallity and an attitude more affected than Boston's entire old money class combined. The physical album itself, including CD booklet is just as, if not rather more, disgusting. This middle-aged woman, acting as though she should be in a harem herself, shamelessly flaunts her tired, strung out, malnourished body and that long mop of split ends on her head. The one halfway decent song, the final number "Take My Breath Away" is a remake of a song from a past album and certainly does not suffice to make up for the entire sorry mess the listner was subjected to. In short, unless you listen to the smoke detector's alarm for entertainment, save your money and dignity and stay far away from Sarah Brightman and her harem.
