And the CD reviews are coming in..."To all who love Broadway, Andrew Lloyd Webber, or just enjoy music, RUN to and get your own copy of his debut CD... it won't disappoint!

From Katherine:

I went straight to my apartment to pick up my Eric Kunze CD before I went to work and I LOVE IT! I've been listening to the album since this morning as I'm working.  It still gives me the same goosebumps as when I first heard his voice in Houston playing Chris in Miss Saigon. I'm so thrilled that "Why God, Why" is in his album because it's one of my favorite songs he performed.  And I love all of his songs in this album especially the ones I've never heard him perform before like "Fathers and Sons" and "Finishing the Hat". I can't stop smiling whenever he hits those high notes in the songs. It's so clear and crisp and beautifully that it melts my heart. Thank you Maggi and especially ERIC KUNZE! I'm going to listen to the album every day until he makes another album **wink wink**

From Donna:

I've been waiting for years for this moment. To actually hold a Eric Kunze CD in my hands.  To stroke it, and lovingly  and carefully open the case.  I got chills when the music started. And to hear Eric  start singing the first bars of "Any Dream will Do". It was wonderful. It made me happy. The song selections are great. He chose, my favorite songs from his stage shows. They 're all on this CD. And he sang them perfectly. I'm High Fying. And I adore this mix of songs.   And, I love the new song.  "Fathers and Sons". That's such a beautiful song.   And  Gethsemane  was again so wonderfully  sung.  I especially enjoyed "Love Changes Everything" I've heard Michael Ball sing this song many times. Eric sings it  beautifully.  He touched my heart and soul. I've listened to this CD at least 4 times through now. And will cherish it. I do hope it's just the first one. And more CD's to come. Thank you Eric and Maggie for making this  wonderful moment happen. Christmas 2010 belongs to Eric Kunze.
Thank you Maggie
Yours truly DonnaFournier

From Jeannine:
Ok, I tore open my CD and threw it into the CD player and JUST finished listening to it 3x through, and all I can say ---WOW!!! Beautiful, and awesome are also 2 adjectives I would use, but actually, I think, there are no words that will describe the music on this CD.. Thanks, Eric for listening to the chorus of people who jumped up and down, requesting this CD..I'm in awe about how one beautiful person, inside and out, can have such a beautiful voice and do such wonderful things with the arrangements! To all ... who love Broadway, Andrew Lloyd Webber, or just enjoy music, RUN to and get your own copy of his debut CD... it won't disappoint!

From Theresa:
 Maggi....I got the CD today, and please tell Eric I LOVE IT!!!!  Love Changes Everything is sooo beautiful.  I saw Aspects of Love years ago, and have Michael Ball's recording.  I love the CD sooo much. I am ordering a 2nd.  I want to send a copy to my dear friend Vera Goulet, wife of the late, wonderful, Robert Goulet.  Thanks so much for doing this, and please send holiday blessings to Eric.

CD Countdown: Questions and Answers

All of your questions and Eric's answers have been moved to a special page, where they were included in our previous Q & A session.  See the right hand column, "Questions and Answers from Eric".

I am trying to streamline the site.  As you can see, there are also now separate pages for reviews and for fan comments.  Clicking on the link will take you to that page and there is a link on those pages to return you to the fansite as well.  Have suggestions?  Let me know.  I'd be more than happy to hear them.
