4.0 out of 5 stars Good soundtrack, with some catchy pieces! Aug. 28 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The soundtrack from the Amaluna live show.

Most of the album is instrumental music that is meant to accompany the live acrobatics, and as such can be a little flat and unassuming without anything to look at. They are still great background tracks, with a unique flair.

I really like the title track, which I find stands on its own merits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Swift, women driven rock with electronic nuisances Dec 1 2013
By William Dennis Mikell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've always enjoyed most of Cirque's music! Amaluna is a fantastic show with a different approach music-wise. Cirque du Soleil hit it out of the park, as usual!

4.0 out of 5 stars Live Show is Better Jan. 1 2014
By Go Firedragons - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Call it Progressive Metal. Not your typical show tunes. The album has more electronics, and English lyrics, but the songs are still very energetic and upbeat. The live show used a 5 woman band with 2 guitars, bass, drummer and Cellist/Vocalist. From what I can remember the guitars played most of the repetitive electronic riffs heard on the album, as well as the horn parts. The drummer also played many of the electronic beats. In general the live show was awesome. I'd go back just for the music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not their best May 8 2014
By Ammy Woodbury - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This Cirque music is fine, but I always find myself preferring Alegria or Dralion instead. If you know you love CdS music, then go for it, but if this is your first CD from them, pick O or Alegria or Dralion or Quidam instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars Loudness war kills another Cirque release Nov. 24 2012
By Renfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First off, this review isn't for the album's music, the music is actually fantastic. One of the best cirque shows with some of the best music, and songs like "Creature of Light", "Hope" and "All Come Together" are absolutely fantastic.

A week before the CD's release, Cirque's website allowed people to stream the album online, and the sound quality there was just perfect. It didn't even sound mastered, it sounded very warm and inviting, with prominent bass and great highs and excellent lows. So imagine my excitement when I got the CD. I was under the impression that this would be a step up from the excessive brick walling and compression that Iris suffered.

How wrong I was.

Immediately the album started off on the wrong foot with one of the most artificial masterings I've ever heard. The opening guitar notes and synths sounded very thin and distorted. Haven't heard mastering this atrocious since Metallica's Death Magnetic! It sounded as if it was going to distort at any second. Much to my horror when I ripped all the tracks to my computer and put them in the audio program I use, I was shocked to find that the album had an average decibel gain of 4. That's right, frigging 4!!!!!

I get that some of you are going to comment saying "just turn it down". Wrong. We shouldn't have to turn the music down just to enjoy it, particularly Cirque's. Good music should be turned up loud manually! We shouldn't have to put an album in and be deafened at regular volume level because of excessive brickwalling. This is textbook disrespect to Bob and Bill's wonderful and beautiful progressive metal score that they composed for a magic and ethereal show. The fact that an acoustic intro to a song (Creature of Light) is louder than an Iron Maiden song is just baffling.

Unless Cirque can really step up their game for the next soundtrack release, I won't be buying the CD. Cirque needs to rerelease this with audio quality that isn't deafening. It would be nice to actually hear a lovely tune like O Ma Ley, but I can't because it's just a big mess of white noise.
