U2's "Peace on Earth" into "Walk On" is extremely moving, with Bono and the Edge screaming "Ah-lay, Ah-lay, Ah-lay" at the end of the song.
Eddie Vedder's "Long Road" is another highlight.
The sound and production are excellent (with the exception of Enrique and Mariah, who use so much echo to hide the fact they do not sing all that well (Mariah has a strong voice, but not on that night)). It really captures the mood of the telethon, and those first couple of weeks after the horrible events of the 11th.
I couldn't wait for this CD to be released. I knew it would be good and was not disappointed. This CD captures the feel of that evening for me and I keep playing it over and over. My favorites remain the three songs that affected me so deeply that evening but the entire CD is special. Neil Young, Alicia Keys and Cheryl Crow's contributions are also special for me.
Music has always been a big part of my life and I can still conjure up feelings and emotions from the past when hearing certain songs. This CD will forever remind me of that night in my car when I finally was able to release some of my anquish over the events of 9/11. It was incredibly healing for me.

I thought this would be a great selection of patriotic music, and looked forward to hearing it. Instead it was a sampler of American music styles. Maybe one was a patriotic song. Read morePublished 11 months ago by LZ
