Just a little note...in case you read the review that "Superman" posted. The version of "Love Changes Everything" is NOT the same version as on the ALW Collection #1. Also..."The Phantom of the Opera" isn't the same version as on the ALW Collection #1 either. And of course...where else will the "Think of Me" come from, if it wasn't from 18 years ago? Why complain about stuff like this when you don't even talk about the new material on the CD? Why don't you get your facts straight, Superman?
"Only You" is a track which I only heard as a poorly downloaded mp3 from a cracking, scratchy vinyl. So...I never really had the chance to enjoy it. But now that it's been re-mastered onto CD, I like it. It's a wonder this one got to see the light of day at all...seeing ALW has released so many compilations of Sarah's music. Why hasn't this song come out to us sooner? Moving on, "Any Dream Will Do" appears on the Japanese Version of "Sarah Brightman Sings the Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber"...and is harder to find, due to it's rarity in some parts. I'm pleased to have it on an up-to-date compilation of ALW's finest music written for Sarah's voice.
Can't understand why "Think of Me" appears on here...if it's on the "Encore" CD...Read more ›
I was totally surprised at how this album was presented. I really like this side of Sarah Brightman. We usually portray Miss Brightman as a big powerful high-pitched soprano kinda singer, which sometimes nice but can get a bit annoying at times. But this album features more of Sarah's relaxing side. She sings all the songs softly and beautifully with a little flair of pop music as well. Most of the songs end with a fade out not with a big powerful Broadway-like ending. And her repertoire here is really interesting. Firstly, it doesn't repeat other albums that much. It also has 7 previously unreleased songs out of 14. That's half the album! Here's my thoughts on each of them:
#1 PROBABLY ON THURSDAY: This was an unreleased song. It sounds more like a pop song than traditional Broadway. But Sarah sings it wonderfully.
#2 THE PERFECT YEAR: From Sunset Boulevard, This unreleased version resembles Dina Carroll's version to me but Sarah has her own take on the song which makes it more gentle and beautiful.
#3 ONLY YOU: From Starlight Express, I'm sure we all have heard Sarah's duet with Cliff Richard in All I Ask of You. But here's another wonderful duet, previously unreleased.
#4 LOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING: From Aspects of Love, Some of you might think "Oh C'mon, we have this song in ALW Collection Vol. 1" Well, folks, this is another version of it and, may I say, a better one. This unreleased version has a completely new take on the song.Read more ›
As other reviwers have said, the version of love changes everything here is much much better than the earlier ones. There are no strainful high notes, and the songs flows more fluidly... Although half the songs have already been released before, listening to them in this cd seems like the first time. I'm not sure how, maybe just the atmosphere that the first 3 songs set (which are unreleased tracks).
This is a very enjoyable listen, and recommended for every one... For those who grumble because of the increasing number of ALW collections with Sarah Brightman on it, please dont judge them by the similarity in track listing. Just ask yourself why there are no other ALW collections with some other artist starring... Maybe, just maybe, no one can cover the different styles of singing (from Phantom of the Opera to Make Up My Heart) with the same dexterity as Sarah Brightman does.
