Five hits, one miss. Tally is six good CDs and one really bad one for two bucks. I suspect it is as well as I could ever hope for.

The one that really doesn't do it for me isn't entirely bad. The instrumental work is wonderful- in fact, I'd like the CD quite a bit if it was just the instruments. But it has vocals, and that is an unforgivable sin when the lead singer can't sing.

I lack the adjectives to describe the sound. The best I can do, I suppose, is draw a connection to popular fiction. Has anybody read the Spellsinger series by Alan Dean Foster? Think of his description of the main character's singing ability- at the beginning of the series, before he's gotten some skill through practice. Remember how that was described? Remember the sound you created in his mind to try to think of how Jon-Tom's voice must be?

Think moderately worse than that.

Anybody interested in a CD with good instruments but bad vocals? Anybody?

The rest was great. I don't know what my favorite is. It was almost all entirely different from what I expected- everything except for CyberChoralColors and Transpositional Landscapes- and yet I'm not disappointed...
