1.0 out of 5 stars Random Collection 13 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is a disappointing collection masquerading as the Hall of Fame 2012. It contains only 21 of the 300 pieces, and those not the top 21, nor in the orcer in which they appear in the top 300.

1.0 out of 5 stars Classic FM Hall of Fame 2012 6 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a regular listener to Classic FM and especially the Hall of Fame programmes, I was excited to order this product.
I have been very disappointed with the CD.
1. Selection of recordings are not of a high standard (especially Karl Jenkins track)!
2. The CD is not mastered properly and so the volume needs manual control - OK in the car, but hopeless indoors
3. Would it have been SO difficult to add 2011 chart positions to the enclosed leaflets? Better still, the 2012 positions?!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the full Hall of Fame - still good 26 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
During Easter was hearing on Classic FM about this Hall of Fame, and thoroughly enjoyed the music on there.

Having seen the previous years Hall of Fame CDs released, I knew that there wouldn't be the full 300 songs released on CD. Some of the music has been repeated several times over on other compilations, and I will confess that I prefer the Classic FM Relaxation set, much better choice of music on there.

As pointed out in previous reviews, the songlist of each CD is a bit of a mess as they don't appear in any order as determined by Classic FMs countdown.

This item was required as a Christmas present, arriving well in time, and is being enjoyed by the recipient, who thinks the Classic Hall of Fame an excellent choice.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thank goodness I read the last review 15 April 2012
By C
Format:Audio CD
I thought that I would be buying all 300 peices of music because I thoroughly enjoyed travelling round the country over Easter listening to Classic FM Hall of Fame. Now that I know the CD only contains a small selection of the top 300 I shall NOT be buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classis FM Hall of Fame 2012Box set 17 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
Delighted with the arrival of Classic FM Hall of Fame 2012 : the layout, the sound, the choice of pieces. It was my second attempt as the first Box set arrived cracked, which I duly returned. Am now awaiting the refund to arrive in my bank for the returned box set. Many thanks indeed. Deirdre
