MY REVIEW:
  I got this in the mail today and I thought what a great day to get it since we'd be on the road for a lot of the evening.  We popped it right into the CD player in the van and away we went.  My oldest daughter didn't seem too pleased with it and actually questioned "what are you listening to?"  She made me think of her Grandmother, my Mother, it was so funny.  My second daughter kept asking for it to be turned up as the other three were making too much noise for her to hear it.  I was very pleased to hear that.  There was a mixed review in the van today about this CD but luckily on the way home from our adventures, everyone was sleeping and I got to play the CD through for the second time.  I picked up on a lot of bits and pieces that I had missed and I'm really glad I did.
  I actually quite enjoyed this CD, which says a lot because I don't normally like things like this.  Although, to be fair, I have never really heard anything like this.  It's a story, but it's singing, too.  It's actually very pleasant to the ears. I liked that the story voices weren't loud & obnoxious and the singing voices were very peaceful and calming.  It's not the type of thing that I would listen to all the time but it's definitely worth listening to again.  I love Mythology and I do like magic and fantasy, it's really worth a listen if you are interested in any of those three things.  I would suggest if you have some long driving and you want something to intrigue your mind, acquire this CD when it comes out on Tuesday, I think you'll be happy you did.  But be careful, if you like to envision what you're hearing, you have an active imagination, or get easily lost in fantasy... you may want to be the passenger because this story is very easy to envision scenes playing out in your head.

 I give this 5 out of 8 thumbs up!!
