More like "Pure Orchestra 2" from the John Tesh Project
on June 13, 2002
For all practical purposes, this album is NOT a John Tesh album. Although the album is billed as John Tesh's, it is rather another John Tesh Project, continuing the theme of 2000's "Pure Orchestra." As a matter of fact, this album contains the entire contents of that album. In other words, for those of you who already bought "Pure Orchestra," you'll only be getting 13 new songs from a 2-disc, 26-song collection. Both "Pure Orchestra" and "Power Of Love" feature orchestrated versions of songs by popular New Age artists (the contents of "Pure Orchestra") and contemporary artists (the new contents of "Power Of Love"). While the orchestrations are very pretty and quite well done, it is akin to listening to the instrumental selections of a Walt Disney animated feature soundtrack -- nicely done, but not very meaningful unless you're actually listening to it in the context of the movie. If you liked the presentation of "Pure Orchestra," you'll like the new material of "Power Of Love." "Pure Orchestra" was, to me, only OK, and, given this, and the fact that I essentially bought that album twice, I can only give "Power Of Love" 2 out of 5 stars.
