Format: Audio CD
I certainly enjoyed hearing Anthony Stewart Head sing bits of songs on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," covering "Green Eyes" and "Freebird," not to mention the infamous musical episode. However, if you expect to hear Head strumming an acoustic guitar and singing on "Music for Elevators" you are going to be surprised by the fact that these are mostly original songs by Head and George Sarah with music that is much more techno pop than anything else (although there are some strong jazz elements at times and an acoustic guitar song, "Talk to You," that is the exception to the rule and my favorite song on the album). There is a duet of the Beatle's "We Can Work It Out" with Holly Palmer and "Last Time," written by Joss Whedon, which raises immediate speculation as to whether this song was intended for "Once More With Feeling": the lyrics would suggest that if it was it was intended for Spike, or maybe Riley, if the musical had been done a season earlier. If you look over the liner notes you will see that James Marsters, Amber Benson and Allyson Hannigan appear on some of the tracks, but they are not really featured enough to be recognizable. In fact, on many of these tracks it is the music rather than the vocals that stand out. Taken altogether "Music for Elevators" is an ironic title, which offers a collection of music that will expand the musical horizons of Head's many "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fans. This is not especially music for that first cup of coffee in the morning either, but I do not think anybody is going to be terribly disappointed by what they find here. Still, any time Head wants to record an acoustic album covering songs like we heard him do on "BtVS," my prediction is that most of us would be even more impressed (hint, hint, hint).

I dont normally write reviews but i really wanted to comment on this album. Being a fan of BtVS and ASH I instantly fell in love with his voice when I heard him singing on the show. This album is really easy to listen to, with great songs such as Fun of the Fair, Last Time, Babies and Owning My Mistakes. The music is good but can be a bit overpowering on Tony's voice - I really hope Tony gives us an album with just him singing along with a guitar. But if your a fan of Anthony Stewart Head like me, you'll love it whatever! Buy it now!

Recieved my copy of music for elevators today and am hugely surprised. Anthony Head has a fantastic voice, the two hidden tracks were a great surprise and it was good to hear the song from 'once more with feeling' again. (Nice to hear James, Alyson and Amber too!!)
Highly recommended!!! Bring on the next album!!!

At last! Music for Elevators is available on Amazon.co.uk and not before time too.
Being a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and it was forgone conclusion that I was excited by the prospect of this album. However, regardless of my Slayer pre-occupation this album is stunning and clearly stands up on it's own merits.
Tony Head and George Sarah have weaved an unusual album. Influences seem varied from electronica to jazzy from darkness and guilt to light and love. We travel from the mysterious 'What Can You tell me?' through an fascinating arrangement of 'We Can Work it Out' to haunting 'End Game'
Buffy fans will recognise the voices James Marsters and Amber Benson who provide backing vocals on several songs. Keep listening after the end of 'End Game'!
Tony Head has a beautifully expressive voice making the whole thing just even more listenable.
I find the album quite addictive. The lyrics are intelligent, inspiring, poignant and poetic. I could listen over and over - and in fact I will...
Highly recommended.
Bright Blessings

I bought this knowing that ASH could sing as I am a Buffy fan. I was delighted to discover other members of the cast on the album and that there were extra songs at the end. The lyrics are thought provoking and I found myself humming along after the first airing which is usually a sign of a good album. Some of the songs reminded me of Depeche Mode and David Bowie. If you like synth music, this is for you. It's more than that though. The song "Last Time" would have been perfect for Spike to sing about Buffy. Good album. Buy and enjoy!

This album is odd. As the title of this review suggests, it will polarise opinion right down the middle.

The first time I listened to this I felt the same way as the previous reviewer - I wanted some 'easy listening' soft-rock ballads as Anthony's cameos on Buffy promised, and this is anything but. There are a couple of guest voices from Buffy co-stars, but that is as far as the connection goes and I was faintly disappointed.

Then I listened to it again ... and haven't stopped. I had the same feeling you get as a child at Christmas when you don't get the gift you really wanted, but then on Boxing Day you begin to discover that what you actually got was even better. This album is completely unique and utterly indulgent. I would say it has a contemporary feel, but contemporary to what? There are faint echoes of David Bowie, Pet Shop Boys, Stereophonics, Keane, Portishead, but each track has its own flavour. The dissembled reworking of the Beatles classic 'We Can Work it Out' is shocking and unnerving ... also inspired and masterful.

If you want something soothing and familiar then this album is not for you; if you want something that will make you sit up and actively listen then give it a go. My advice would be to buy it with no preconceptions and don't judge it on the first airing. Sometimes the unexpected can be unwelcome, but sometimes it is a pleasant surprise. For me it was the latter.
