1.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Disappointing! June 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first saw Lili Haydn on Josh Groban's PBS special, and thought it would be great to get a copy of her Light Blue Sun disc when I saw it at a chain store. I expected something similar to his music or maybe the likes of Bond and Joshua Bell. Did I get a huge surprise!
What is Lili trying to prove anyway? That she's a reject auditionee for the Corrs? She's a good violinist, but Sharon Corr can play circles around her and has the resume' to back it up! The best song on here is "Sweetness," and you lose interest in it after a few plays. She's not a good pop songwriter, and her vocals are no great shakes--very weak. What a shame with her violinist's skills. She ought to stop pretending her voice could ever carry outside of a kitchen pantry and put some clothes back on.
Even the instrumentals on this cd are nothing to brag about. Worst example? "The Promised Land:" Ten minutes too many of what sounds like slow death in the heat. All you can think when you hear this is that you should be crawling on the sand as you murmur, "Water...waa-ter!" You also find yourself thinking, "So this is the soundtrack to Hell!"
This is just awful and boring in my eyes, but maybe it's your cup of tea. Would you like to buy mine?

3.0 out of 5 stars Great instrumentals, not-so-great singing. June 4 2004
By cplewis
Format:Audio CD
Lili Haydn is a powerhouse violinist, and this album holds some beautifully melodic instrumentals, including a ten-minute jam with George Clinton and Pharaoh Sanders. However, the album falters with her singing. The new-age timbre of her voice combined with her cheesy/obvious lyrics distract from the music that would stand so beautifully on its own. Haydn emotes so much with her violin that she doesn't NEED to sing, and I hope she'll just stick to her awesome instrumentals in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredible live performance April 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
We just bought the CD - we bought it after seeing Lili open for one of our favorite bands in San Francisco. The crowd was not one that was going to be receptive to just about anything except the headlining band, and she won over the majority of the crowd with the performance. My SO and I looked at each other as soon as she opened her mouth, and we knew we were buying the cd. I saw a lot of other people buy it at the concert - based on the live performance, this is one to get.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should Stick to Instrumentals March 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sorry, but this person can't sing and definitely cannot write a song. And the earth-babe pose on the cover somehow makes it worse. The violin playing is nice, but swamped by an overproduced techno beat and cheesy instrumentation.
Save your money.....it tires after one listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars sensual, seductive and peaceful Nov. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
I just happened to pick up her CD because of the cover. I had no idea who this artist was. I listened to a few seconds of each track in the store and popped it into the CD player once I was in the car. This album took my breath away. Beautifully done, If this album was a book, it would be a page turner leaving you on the edge of your seat to see what comes next. You do not want to skip any of the songs on this album. Lili well done!

2.0 out of 5 stars It never rocks... Oct. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've listened to Lili's first self-titled album a number of times. I've pin-pointed my favorite parts to the bridge in "Real" and the intro to "Baby." These parts are two of the best electric violin performances I've ever heard, full of distortion and wah-pedal used with a full understanding of how they work with a violin. This album has no such parts. If you want a CD that has that style of effects-laden string music, before recommending this album I would sooner point you artists such as Rasputina, Apocalyptica, Martyn Bennett, and Ritsu Katsumata.
This album sounds too much like that uninspired Bond crap that sells too well.
