    WOW!

    This is an amazing blend of classical and modern music. The singing is great, the instrumentation is breathtaking. The lyrics are absolutely moving (be sure to read the english translations). I don't usually admit to friends that I really enjoy classical music, but this is something that I want to share with everyone. It works great as background music when doing homework (for all you younger people) but is even better turned up loud with lots of bass. I definitely recommend this set to anyone.

    ethereally grounded.

    the formula for paul schwartz' aria: classical + synthetic = ethereally grounded. all tracks are beautifully textured, moving, melancholic, at times haunting. the way he blended orchestra and electronic in aria produced music that is so unbelievably lush and inspiring. a must-have for eclectics.
