I'm a new fan of Brightman's and i love what i'm hearing from this album.
J. Sumaran
She has one of the most beautiful and classical voices while at the same time able to sing contemporary music of her own.
Magnificent Blue
The music & Sarah Brightman's voice takes you to a place, that we only dream of.

the Abode of Peace!" ~ Arabian Nights
I've been a fan of Sarah Brightman since the release of 'Eden' back in 99 and have since then acquired many of her albums and concert DVDs and, imho, this is by far her best work to date (although many will disagree because it's so experimental). She's a true angel of music and 'Harem' (forbidden places) explores the exotic with beautiful, crystalline singing and ethereal, wordly-pop meets middle eastern beats that will keep you entranced until the very end (and then you'll probably start it again because world music can be very addicting if it's done the right way and if you've got the ear/taste for it). This album is hypnotic and enchanting and very different from her successful predecessor 'La Luna' but it definitely rises above anything she's ever done before and it showcases her love of varied styles. Operatic singing is pretty much nonexistent here but she still incorporates her old roots with a well-trained classical voice on "A Stranger In Paradise" and a great adaption of Puccini's "Un Bel Di" (It's a Beautiful Day). Frank Peterson continues to guide Sarah's career in the right direction by producing the sweeping, dance-infused "Harem" (the title being a song in which she wrote herself) while bringing in some new faces to spice the mix up, like keyboardist Jaz Coleman (ex-Killing Joke who also worked on the highly praised New Zealand project, Oceania) to breathe life into the soaring string orchestrations.
'Harem' also features a lot of guest artists, such as the passionate Iraqi vocalist Kadim Al Sahir on "The War Is Over" and classical violinist Nigel Kennedy who recently worked with crossover star Josh Groban.

I have been anticipating the release of the new Sarah Brightman cd "Harem" for some time now. I haven't been into her music for too long, maybe like 2 years now. Her last cd was a compilation of new and original material which I thought was fairly good but I preferred her greatest hits (import only). "La Luna" was what got me into Sarah's breathtaking vocals. I wasn't sure if I wanted to wait until I got the new Delerium cd or to get it now. I'm glad I got it today. "Harem" is definitely a departure from "La Luna" and "Eden". Sarah embraces world and dance music with her more familiar classical-pop sounds. I found this new sound quite refreshing and exciting to hear from Sarah. Of course she still has her breathtaking ballads like "What you Never Know" and a cover of Mandalay's "Beautiful". My favorite, favorite song off the cd has to be track #5 "The Journey Home". The song starts off as a ballad and slowly shifts into a dance song. I love the melodies as well as the lyrics. I also loved Sarah's rendition of the classic "What a Wonderful World" which surprisingly works quite well as a dance song. All the songs are stunning masterpieces. I could not find one song on the cd that I didn't enjoy. Sarah sounds better than ever as a vocalist. It is good to hear her experiment with other styles of music and incorporate with her brand of classical-influenced pop music. "Harem" definitely ranks as one of this year's best albums as well as one of Sarah's best albums.
