    Over 15 years in the making, it is finally here.

    I'd be interested to see if many PF/RW fans will buy it purely because it's Roger.
    I don't know yet whether or not I'll buy it myself, but I am very curious to listen to it.
    A lot of his work has involved emotional music, so I'm interested so see how this works.

    Hmmm..I have thought about getting it too. Being in SACD is a nice extra as is a bonus DVD.
    Unfortunately I'm no fan of Opera...I can't stand it..apart from the odd aria.
    Well, if my budget stretches to it perhps I'll get it...but I'm undecided. :confused:

    There are 2 target audiences who should be interested in this release, and there is a danger of missing both of them.

    I just hope the Lloyd-Webber dig in "I'ts a Miracle" doesn't come back to haunt him.

    "..and breaks his ******* fingers!" Ha...I didn't mind as I'm no fan of Webber's music. If 'Ca Ira' sounds anything like a Lloyd Webber musical I will definately not like it! Still, if I can get to hear a few miutes worth then maybe it'll make my mind up. Thing is I find opera a bit, well, "pompous"...yet I enjoy classical very much. Hmm...perhaps a review would help? There's one at the "Brain Damage" website but I'll look for one in the press if possible.

    You can go to the official site here You can hear music at around average radio quality. It will give you the chance to hear quite a lot of it I think. :thumbsup:

    After listening to a little I must agree :( Maybe the overture but really.....no...not for me at all. I just don't like opera..particularly in English..
    10 years..that could have been 2 studio albums.. :mad:
