I have to admit I did not like "Dralion" the first time I heard it. I found it quite a departure from the music we have come to associate with Cirque. However, if I had to describe Cirque in a few words, 'original', 'ground-breaking', 'different' and 'facsinating' all spring to mind. And music from "Dralion" just happens to be all that, and much more.
"Dralion" the CD can really only be dismissed as being new-age at the very first listen. It is such a unique and different sound from other Cirque releases, that it might not grow on you at first, but after a couple of listens, you will agree it's definately up there with the best of Cirque. The music itself can best be described as a seamless fusion of asian (mainly indian,chinese), western and african melodies, enveloped by modern contemporary flavours of pop-music and electronica.
The opening track 'Stella Errands' is just stunning with amazing vocals from Erik Karel. This is followed by the nature-loving 'Ombra', one of the slower and less upbeat tracks on the CD. This melodic and lyrical piece is sung so beautifully in Italian by Agnes Sohier. The faster tracks in the CD are also brilliant. 'Nikou Latora' starts off pretty slow and subtle, but eventually climaxes to a brilliant and majestic up-beat tempo with inspiring vocals from Erik Karel. 'Hinko' is so sublime and surreal, it could almost send you into a trance with it's mysterious and exotic feel and sentiment. Other tracks like 'Aborigines Jam' and 'Ravendhi' are just pure fun!
In all, not what you expect from Cirque du Soleil. But that's the beauty of it all, they never ever cease to amaze me!

For the 11th time, Cirque manages to put out an incredible CD. Rather than managing to tackle complex topics (such as being one of millions in a society, or death and rebirth) like Benoit did, Dralion's CD seems to tell a simple love story. "Ballare" is one of the best Cirque ballads, second only to Quidam's heart-wrenching "Let Me Fall". As the music progresses, it gets deeper, more suspenseful. The clouds break momentarily in the electric "Aborigines Jam" (track 9), then return for the superbly dark "Hinko". The finale, "Kamande", is everything that a Cirque ending should be- bright, upbeat, and triumphant are some words that come to mind.
This is Violaine Corradi's first time ever composing for Cirque du Soleil. Dralion leaves me certainly hoping that it won't be the last.

Not being an opera fan, I listened once to this one and put it away in favor of Quidam and Journey of Man. I disliked it so much I didn't see the show when it was in Boston. Welllll....a few weeks ago I decided to try one more time..then another...before long I found myself humming some of the music while working and trying to remember where I'd heard it. This is now my favorite Cirque CD and I am flying to Texas to see the show....if only I had listened a few more times at first I'd have saved myself that flight. Erik Karol has the most fabulous voice...Stella Errans is a masterpiece and Miracula Aeternitatis is almost as good!! Buy the CD, I know it will become a favorite,opera fan or not.

Dralion, being the 9th Cirque du Soleil soundtrack release, continues the tradition of outstanding music. This time however, even more words (real meaningful words, not just ah and la) are used then in Quidam, which is a lot. The words are also in a large variety of languages, Ballare being in Italian, Miracula Æternatatis being completely in Latin, Kamande in French (I think), Aborigine Jam being in sampled Native American tongue, and Ombra being in Italian, French, and English. The main singer, Erik displays a marveleous range, singing above the treble clef in Stella Errans, and rapping in Latin below (or near there) the bass clef, and then doing a two octave jump in Miracula Æternatatis. This is another hit definetly worth getting for any Cirque du Soleil fan.

If you want the Dralion music straight from the show, without any changes, then don't bother with this CD.
It's not the Dralion show music.
And that is a good thing, if you're willing to listen to this CD without expecting it to be the same music as in the show.
When I first listened to the CD, I really didn't like it. I had been expecting music nearly identical to that on the show, and was immediately disappointed. I was especially upset by the versions of the double trapeze act (Ninkou Latora) and the aerial pas de deux (Ballare). Not nearly as passionate and haunting as in the show, in my opinion.
Now, I like this music even more than what's on the show. After my first disagreable run-through, and after wondering if I weren't missing something extremely important to the experience, I decided to listen to the CD again. This time, without comparing it to the show. It worked -- I realized that this CD is more of a descendant of the Dralion show than it is a companion. The music has changed...evolved...into something that is Dralion, and yet is something more. It isn't necessary to see the show to enjoy this CD. One of the tracks, Spiritual Spiral, isn't even present on the DVD/Bravo version, but it hasn't prevented me from enjoying it anyways.
Here are the tracks on the CD, matched with the DVD scenes:
1. Stella Errans (Single-hand balancing)
2. Ombra (Foot juggling)
3. Spiritual Spiral (Not on DVD)
4. Miracula Aeternitatis (Spirits)
5. Bamboo (Bamboo poles)
6. Ballare (Aerial pas de deux)
7. Ravendhi (Teeterboard)
8. Ninkou Latora (Double trapeze)
9. Aborigenes Jam (Hoop diving)
10. Hinko (Ballet on lights)
11. Kamande (Skipping)
My favorite tracks are Ballare, Ninkou Latora, Stella Errans, and Hinko.
