Should you have access to spotify you can listen to it in its entirety below. A review can also be found here, although, we are listening to it at the moment and so far find it more favorable then that review might suggest, and certainly more favorable to the other recent Walkure mentioned.  Now, whether we would compare it favorably to Janowski's previous complete Ring cycle seems less likely - at least at this stage.
