Moving to a 10 because it moves me to a happy place and isn’t that what a great song is supposed to do?

Good of you to take the time to post something negative, because we all need more negativity.

Beautiful!

This is a wonderful segue from The Be Good Tanyas. Great job!
This performance live in Amsterdam was an amazing experience I am most grateful for.

Nice enough song, albeit similar to his Divenire stuff. Bit of an "if the bike ain't broke" sort of guy?
Beautiful music, it's 1.05am here and it suits a cold November night. Bless you all at RP Thank you for playing such a great mix of music.

There just has to be other music out there, surely you don't really need to play the same stuff over and over? 

 
Or just step up and use PSD since THE MAJORITY  of reviews like it. Spare us your {#Stop}drivel!

Just listed to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and thought the same. 
I couldn't agree more.

Not bad but it does go on a bit, doesn't it?
i like this instrumental song , i like all the time
Everytime I hear this instrumental song "Life" by Ludovic Einaudi I have to stop what I'm doing and just listen. It has the best aspects of a wonderful film score, where you can almost picture the emotions....

I uploaded some of the best works from Bach but it got rejected. Odd to see 2Cellos, some cheesy classical covers of popular rock songs and Einaudi make it to the list. Or is the definition of eclectic corroding?
I'm always glad when I switch on RP, and something by Einaudi is playing.

There are tears in my eyes from that beautiful story and how fine to meld over this fine classic song, I am humbled.

My best friend of 50+ years passed away last year. In his dotage he fell head over heels in love with a lovely, indeed stunning, young Italian girl. He and I habitually had spirited ourselves away from our women and our lives periodically to chill, talk, and too much toward the end reminisce. During our last trip, this after his cancer had been diagnosed, I decided one night that music was in order and played Einaudi's Devenire from my iPod. He looked up, "How did you know that's what I wanted?" Lucky guess. Turned out Einaudi was one of the mutual loves they bonded over. I can't hear Einaudi now without seeing him, forever jumbled in a tangle of emotions. Until the very end he never quite learned that you're never too old for love.

 

What a nice story.  I'm sorry your friend is gone.  So glad you got to share such beautiful music together near the end.

I would pratice some yoga listen this song. Relaxing, very nice
Nice relaxing music on a Friday afternoon.  Thanks for providing the chill pill. 
I laugh a lot when I read people saying "elevator music", and then gives a 10 punctuation to weird and trance songs. You suck. Ludovico is not the best composer in the world, but is fine and listennable.

Elevator music.

 
I'd happily be trapped in that elevator. For real lift music, try Brian Eno's ambient stuff  - this is more accurately described as minimalist, in the Philip Glass mould. As folk often say, less is more, and I've always thought that about Einaudi's work: it has a subtle complexity that comes out on repeated listens. It's also highly evocative of its subject. 9 from the entranced Nottingham jury.

I think that's the point. It's likely meant to be meditative/ambient music; he's not trying to emulate Parliament-Funkadelic.

I for one can't get enough of this artist.

Admittedly not for everyone, but when I read a particularly degrading comment and then see that user rate Radar Love a 10, I have to SMH {#No}.
I usually like this artist, but this one is a little too "Phillip Glass" for me (too tumultous).

Hi all,

I really don't get it when people say that this is not good music, there is a button for that,( if  you don't like it, it's called PSD), but other than that, for me this is just making my day!

From the east coast I just love this music

Bye

Exactly!!!
This, followed by Radiohead!  From the insipid to the inspired. 
I love the eclecticism of RP, but Einaudi?  What's next, George Winston, Yanni, Kenny G, Chris Botti, John Tesh...?
I'm always mystified by the high ratings that Einaudi's musical twaddle gets from RP's generally discerning listeners.
Meditative.
So fab - he always catches my ear.

OK - I finally admit it: I like (Einaudi's best) songs - like this one!

TOUCHING!


Musical wallpaper. So tedious and has no soul.

From a 6 to a 7.  
Some pretty sounds, to be sure, but at the end this just does not move me. Don't know why.
And the word, pablum, fits the music to me, too.

I agree that "pablum" is a good word, but it is an American colloquialism which Fred may not have heard or read before in The U.K. (as evidenced by his "WTF" query).  His mention of using "20th Century words" was probably referring to the notion of people using the Latin word "pabulum", and was not a demand for people here to limit their vocabularies.

 

Point taken. I guess I thought that "pablum" had spread farther afield and/or that fredriley's profession would have bumped him up against the word before now.

I like his music; saw him in person about 3 years ago. My friends said every song sounded the same. Oh well. In any case, as with any of the wonderful tunes on RP, simply click on PSD if you don't care for it. I think it's fine to post our likes and dislikes but to go on a rant about anything - that really is boring.
Sublime.  Like wordless poetry painting pictures on my mind.  Another beautiful album from a modern genius.

One question I will ask Bill(God) when I meet him is: What's up with Ludovico Einaudi?

It is odd that his music seems to make some people so angry.  A lot of his music seems to be composed to elicit some sort of meditative or serene response yet it ironically produces the opposite response — there is something interesting about that.  It's not the sort of music I would buy, but it doesn't bother me so much either, and I agree, that at its worst, it's background muzak - unless there are some subliminal messages to buy Fiats or San Pellegrino beverages buried in the mix.  
I was amused by gvan's comment though: "He should be named Quaaludovico."

* "Pablum" is a 20th Century word which originated in the 1930s; it is a fortified oatmeal/corn meal/farina-type of cereal for babies.  It's name came from the older, Latin word "pabulum".

I'd rather be listening to Vivaldi instead.

Dont like
classical but love Einaudi - Brilliant
The same old Einaudi trick ... boring and unbearable. The guy is smart like a fox ...
OMG, how I hate this cheap imitation of classic music!
Although this might not suit everyone's musical palette, thanks to RP for again introducing us to the wider spectrum of music out there, even though it might lie outside of some listeners narrow groove

One person's pablum is another persons joy, but thanks for informing us.

For me, pleasant but not knocking my socks off. 
Like it. I'm picking up strains of 'Right Here, Right Now' by Fatboy Slim towards the end of this ... anyone else get that?

It's not very often I post comments, but the pap level of this one drove me to it. I had to check whether anyone else had actually noticed, and sure enough...There seem to be a lot of piano 'strummers' out there at the moment doing this sort of thing. Sorry to be negative, but I really find it hard to comprehend the mass hypnotism that gives this a 7 rating.
Cool. I didn't realize there was a new album release from this artist.
OMG!  The pilot fell asleep when this song played.  Help!
New stuff from Ludovico Einaudi.{#Whipit} 
Just like saying his name and like his music too.

Yeah... there's plenty of music on RP I don't like, but I can usually understand why it gets played. This just sounds like it was written to be on a bad chill-out compilation... like the ones they sell on giant racks in garden centres along with "Sounds of the Rainforest"...
