Format: Audio CD
There is no doubting that symphonic rock albums are fraut with danger.Hearing all that music you love given the regal treatment of an orchestra - it's such an exciting notion.It's a notion that usually disappoints.

"Kashmir" is everything that most symphonic rock albums are not. This is not a pedestrian re-hashing of Led Zep, but an intense and involving series of spectacular arrangements. No elevator music here.

Clearly, the brilliance of this project is because of Killing Joke's Jaz Coleman,who arranged all the music for the London Philharmonic. As with his excellent orchestral albums of the music of Pink Floyd and The Doors,Coleman not only spectacularly re-arranges the pieces, but also writes new music that seemlessly binds the arrangements.

There is a typically Eastern flavour here: a product of Coleman's time with the Cairo Symphony no doubt. Surprises abound though,such as the Uilleann Pipes on "The Battle of Evermore".

It is important to discuss "Stairway to Heaven" here,because it surmises the entire project for me.Why take it on? The risk of failure is massive and yet what we have is possibly the single finest symphonic arrangement of a contemporary song ever. It is quite breathtaking what Jaz Coleman has done here - no doubt silencing any that thought of this project as a cynical act. It was clearly a labour of love.

One should also separate this from any of the recent flirtations of pop/rock artists with the classical world (endless strings on pop tunes;that guy from the Beatles) and note that Coleman has been involved in classical music all his life,writing several symphonies of his own, as well as forming one of the most significant bands in history.

Led Zeppelin were one of the few identifiable influences to Coleman's Killing Joke. This is a worthy tribute.

As an old fart of the 70s, its not very often you find a suitable classical interpretation of one of the great rock bands, look no further than this. an excellent album of orchestral rock with Kashmir never sounding so great. So settle down in your favourite armchair have a glass of your favourite, and chill to this.

I bought this for my wife as a Christmas present. She is a Led Zep fan and has all of their albums. I thought this would be a different approach to their music and she loves it.
