Cirque du Soleil: "O"

( 4 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - L. Katz
It may well be true that the stage show of O is more lavish, creative, and spectacular than its older sister Mystere, but music has little to do with its overall appeal. One gets the feeling that the musical score took a backseat to the visual effects in the show -- and without any visual effects, the soundtrack is not as exciting as the live show. It is slow and pretty. Benoit Jutras used a light touch with the musical pyrotechnics and dramatic soundscapes that light up O. The album lulls the listener, and will no doubt serve as a pleasant reminder of the live performance.

    The Best Cirque Yet!

    This is, honestly, the best Cirque Du Soleil CD I've ever heard. The diverse flavors of music and the strange, imaginary language give this CD a unique sound never heard before. Everything from relaxing, soothing tunes like "O" to lively dance music like "Tzelma," this is a must-have for any Cirque fan!
