Violin wunderkind Vanessa Mae shook up the classical music world with her crossover-turned The Violin Player in 1994. Storm, her second pop/classical venture, is even bolder, with the dress-to-kill virtuoso performing a mixture of classical, rock, and techno.

While not everyone will enjoy this album, those willing to explore a palette of traditional classical sound painted with brushes of pop and techno will find satisfaction in this album. I love it and would encourage even those a little put off by the mixing of styles to give it a try -- you won't be disappointed.
Vanessa-Mae's STORM is a great CD for anyone. I listen to it nonstop becuase there's a song for every mood you're in. The only time it leaves my CD player is when I put the CD into my friend Will's hands. He'll either put it into the computer or onto our theater's stereo so that everyone in theatre can listen to it. All my friends love the title track and also #6 (I) Can, Can (You). My personal favorites are #'s 2,3,4,5,6,7,11, and 12.
This CD has a wonderful expressive sound unlike any other I have heard. I love the title song Storm, I found that the best way to appreciate all the sounds in this version is to put on your earphones and experience it in full. Can't wait for her next recording.
