Awesome cd for anyones cd collection

Quick Shipping!
I actually bought this for my daughter as one of her Christmas presents so I cannot give a review of the actual CD yet. I am sure she will love it cause it was one of her top 10 items on her list. I can say though that the shipping time was really quick, as usual.


it reminds me of john candy in....
...In plains trains and automobiles where he's driving down the road, listening to a song with a cigar in his mouth and he starts playing the piano on the dash. it makes me think a lot of that. Really great driving music.

Marjorie M. Smith

I am very pleased with it and thank you (My first moog player was "Switched on Bach" on a cassette many years ago).

There are times when you want something catchy and easy to listen to. This version of the Nut Cracker sounds just like that, catchy with familiarity, but different enough to keep your attention. It's a pleasent change to a holiday classic.
Just about everyone will enjoy!


Enjoying at The Moment
I rrrreally liked the cd. It was a nice "change" from the norm. I intend on passing this along to many so they too can experience the sounds. Thanks!

Michael R

Amazing! Down Right Brilliant!
Just when I had thought it had all been done, this CD comes along and blows me out of the water. It has to be the freshest sound on the Internet. Bravo!!!

Poul Jensen

Absolutely one of the best...
This have to be one of the best newer version of an old classic master piece, now all we need is a ballet made to the music.

Alberto González (dorremifasol)

nutcracking pleasure
I like classical music very much, and electronic music as well. This CD is a nearly perfect fusion of both generes with some really spectacular moments that still give me goose bumps. Drums perhaps draw too much attention on some tunes.

Well done Brète!

Joseph Ferrerosa

Nut cracka licious!
Brete' I hear is quite an awesome musician. He completly blew me away with the GREAT electronica of the Nutcracker Suite. Two problems I found though. One I'll make short are the endings, they are not drawn out or climatic! They always end very staccato. Not personally my thing. Finally, Brete's main problem are the sound of the drums he plays them a lil notch too loud. But besides that an excellent CD!
