Well this will always amaze me about music. How two people can get such opposite feelings from one album. If I understand you correctly Olivier, you quite like it when you think of it in terms as a soundtrack, but find it rather too sad as a piece to be considered on it's own? If I've got that wrong, I do apologise. For my part Music of the Spheres is incredibly full of life, of energy, and it makes me feel totally elated. It's the feelings of exhilaration I imagine you get on reaching the summit of a mountain, or skiing down a dangerous slope, or sailing a huge ocean swell, ( even cycling down Hergest Ridge! ). It's a physical thing. It is so positive for me, with the only hint of caution coming from Prophecy. And I love that too. It's also just so, so beautiful. Someone here described one of the tracks as 'jubilant' and I would add other words, joyful, triumphant, cheerful, exaltant, assured, ..even victorious! The exact opposite of sad infact...maybe I lead a low key kind of life and this music has taken me to a new level!!! perhaps that's all it is. But I simply love it, it was worth waiting for, Mike was born to write music of this nature and although soundtracks are fantastic ( certainly lucrative ), I believe Music of the Spheres is so much more. And I really hope that it is remembered as a Classical piece of music of some worth from now and for always. More please!!!
....second to the right and straight on till morning....
You heard me before
Yet you hear me again
Then I die
Till I call me again
