4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure to listen to
It is exciting holding the vinyl in my hand and looking at the cover, reading the notes, and then holding the heavy record and starting to play, the sound is warm and powerfull, really enjoyable, takes me to a dream as I listen to it through the headphones and close my eyes. The music is not really extraordinary, but what is exciting is that is it by Paul, I am used to...

3.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasant listen.
A very pleasant listen, perfectly suited for a quiet evening or as background music while your are relaxing. The music suffers from the same problem that most soundtracks often suffer from (even though this is not a soundtrack), it requires visuals (in this case the ballet)in order to make it memorable. Usually memorable tunes are McCartney's strength but here there is...

This review is from: Ocean's Kingdom (2LP) (LP Record)
It is exciting holding the vinyl in my hand and looking at the cover, reading the notes, and then holding the heavy record and starting to play, the sound is warm and powerfull, really enjoyable, takes me to a dream as I listen to it through the headphones and close my eyes. The music is not really extraordinary, but what is exciting is that is it by Paul, I am used to listening to classical music by Paul from his previous works, but this actually gives me more visual effects listening to it, so a pleasure to listen to but not a wow factor. A plus is a download of the record and another live edition of the music as well.

This review is from: Ocean's Kingdom (Audio CD)
A very pleasant listen, perfectly suited for a quiet evening or as background music while your are relaxing. The music suffers from the same problem that most soundtracks often suffer from (even though this is not a soundtrack), it requires visuals (in this case the ballet)in order to make it memorable. Usually memorable tunes are McCartney's strength but here there is little that stays with the listener. The most memorable section is Movement 4 which has a distinctive melody. Distinctive that is until you have finished the whole album. The melody fades quickly much like waves on a shore (the same is true of the music as a whole).
In the past, McCartney has produced much stronger melodies in a non pop/rock setting. The just reissued "Family Way" soundtrack is very good example.

Note: All versions include a code to allow a free download of the live premier of this music. A nice touch but it adds very little to the enjoyment of the piece.
