    Very disappointing--she must have been wrongfully influenced. Title should be changed to reflect the music, like Music To Die With or Love is Hopeless.

    How can anyone with ears on the side of their noggin like this trash? Proves the low-end theory in American attitudes on culture is going into the toilet. As they say, bad taste is the droppings that grow the trees that this crap grows on.

  1. While Amarantine will do nothing to win over the wrongly pegged new age artist's many detractors, longtime fans will find enough moments of serendipitous pleasure to hold them over for another five years.
  2. Amarantine sounds like it was born in cloistered solitude, self-referentially echoing Enya albums past.

    This album is calm and relaxing almost to a fault. [26 Nov 2005]
