Picks and Pans Review: Harem
Sarah Brightman (Angel)
Tuneless, feckless and dripping with pretentiousness, this is one misconceived concept album inspired by Middle East legend. From the wispy title track to the tortuous version of "Stranger in Paradise" and joyless "What a Wonderful World," stage vet Brightman's nasal, shrill singing and this disc's cheesy arrangements succeed mainly in evoking the hokey tone of an Arabian Knights cartoon.
BOTTOM LINE: Dim Brightman
