This album is the first of everything is Sarah Brightman's career, her first of many 'themed' albums, first collaboration with future partner Frank Peterson, and her first step to becoming one of the worlds most famous crossover artists
But everyone has to start from somewhere, and this album showed the talents of Sarah and her imagination through a water-themed recording. Favourites of mine are 'Captain Nemo', and 'A Salty Dog'. This album didn't show Sarah's operatic vocals as much as usual, but you could still hear the difference between the sensual beat of 'Once In a Lifetime' to the passionate, almost heaving voice of 'A Salty Dog'. This is a great album.
