5.0 out of 5 stars Elysium Soars! September 11, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I heard a few samples on You Tube...Thought if these are that good the full album must be good. I was not disappointed.
When I need creative music in the background during a project..I choose Elysium.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Vendetta! August 5, 2012
By Legend
Format:MP3 Music
I think the album art really does this album justice. The sweet vocals, heavenly strings, and victorious brass trumpets all bring to mind a soaring flock of angels. This is trailer music at its finest. Personally, I think the first track (Garador's Flight) is the best; it has the superb quality and unique appeal as such works by Two Steps from Hell and Future World Music. The other songs also sound like audible works of art. Elysium is a step up from Vendetta; whereas the previous album surrounded the atmosphere created by dark, rolling drums (don't get me wrong--it was a point of view that certainly worked and sounded great), Elysium instead takes the listener to soaring heights. Vendetta was about revenge, bringing to mind grim-faced Roman legionnaires hoisting shields, buckling on gauntlets, and facing a formidable foe across the windswept plains in the dusky morning light. Elysium is about the wings of an angel, ruffling through clean and golden clouds, cresting snow-capped mountains, breezing over rich green meadows and carpets of thick, verdant forests...it is more of an adventurous, rather than "destiny-is-calling," album. Jo Blankenburg has not disappointed in this work. I was very pleased with the quality and the originality, and despite the low number of songs compared to the price, it is definitely worth your money. Five stars for Elysium!

5.0 out of 5 stars Elysium... I could almost SEE it... December 22, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Jo did it AGAIN! Vendetta was awesome but darker... this is the flip side of the coin. He pulled melodies that made me stop and weep from the beauty of them. WAY TO BE, BROTHER! Keep em coming!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what I'd expected. December 16, 2012
By Bumble
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Lovely music, much like Floatovations this seems like thematic release that holds together and transports the listener. I'm a part-time writer and this is the perfect accompaniment to that "activity".

5.0 out of 5 stars In a realm all its own December 6, 2012
By J. Weis
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Just one of the most beautiful works of music. The composition is as if it was sent from above. Can't say enough good things about it. Should be in every collection. Powerful, emotional, sincere, empowering. Makes me want to get up in the morning...

I did not know anything about this soundtrack before I bought it, but after hearing the sample pieces and reading the high reviews from others, I took a chance and bought all the songs....I'm so glad that I did. Wonderful work and an excellent buy.

There is music that simply cannot be ignored. Elysium is one such album. Undoubtedly one of the best works released this year, the album comes from composer and pianist Jo Blankenburg, who for six years, focused his work on the composition and production of epic music for film and television.

After the resounding success of his previous work "Vendetta", which saw some of its tracks being licensed for trailers of Hollywood blockbusters and also a nomination for the prestigious Hollywood Music and Media Award, Jo continues to grow and gives life to Elysium, possibly the best album of epic music that you will hear for a long time. Blankenburg, displaying shrewdness and a touch of genius in composing the tracks, made the album with a real cast of musicians. The tracks of Elysium do not contain any computer or virtual instruments, something that is very rare in these times.
Led by Jo Blankenburg and Petr Pololáník, Elysium was recorded in Czech Republic with Capellen Orchestra & Choir. The choir (using texts in Latin and Sanskrit), consisted of a select group of Czech Republic's finest musicians.

Music is meant to be enjoyed, but Elysium is meant to be lived. Jo Blankenburg has created the best album we can acquire for a long time. With only eleven tracks, the listener holds his breath in anticipation of what the next track has in store. And while an energetic and heroic composition is insufficient if the notes do not possess a magical melody, Jo Blankenburg has not only found the magic, he has somehow managed to make each piece better than the last.

Friends, Elysium truly is real music. This is the work of one of the best composers of our time, and that's saying something. My respect, Maestro Blankenburg!

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic, Amazing, and a must have! November 7, 2012
By Artha
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Hearing samples on youtube made me come and check this album out.. and I caved in and bought it... and I do not regret this purchase. At all.
It is amazing. Every song catches and grabs you.
There is not one single song on the CD that I do not like, though I have to say my favorite is Gryphonheart.
I want more music like this. More CD's like this - with soaring, beautiful, epic music that makes you want to just lean back and imagine.
It also made an awesome background music for a RPG I am running with a friend... Simply amazing. Worth every penny, and more.
