Overview

Fly represents Brightman's foray into the world of electronica, which may surprise some fans of the acclaimed singer who have long associated her with the Broadway and classical genres. Beginning with a sound most associated with the former Phantom of the Opera star (although the international smash "Time to Say Goodbye" did not appear on the original release), the music quickly turns to a Euro-techno style offset by a pop
ock tone, with a couple of romantic ballads thrown in for good measure. Included in this set are the German hits "Question of Honor," a techno
ock/dance number interlaced with opera and written for boxer Henry Mask; "How Can Heaven Love Me," a duet with Manfred Mann's Earth Band lead singer, Chris Thompson; and a lovely pop ballad, "Heaven Is Here." Even more obscure is a rock duet with singer Tom Jones called "Something in the Air," with obscure being the perfect word to describe this entire outing by an international superstar who seems to rise to the occasion of any musical challenge. While there isn't a cohesive feel to this album as is the case with her later releases, it's still quite enjoyable to listen to Brightman take on what is usually left to the vocally challenged disco/pop queens gracing the Top 40 and dance clubs.
