Product Description

Product Description

The collaboration between Within Temptation and Q-Music gets a new episode: after the successful broadcast of several covers, which Within Temptation arranged and performed for the radio station by the end of 2012, the band will now release a selection of these covers on an album titled 'The Q-Music Sessions' on the 19th of April in the Netherlands and Belgium. In the run up to the 15th anniversary of Within Temptation in the sold-out Sportpaleis in Antwerp, the band was asked by Q-Music to choose and perform an existing track in a 'Within Temptation-fashion' on a weekly basis. The band accepted this challenge enthusiastically that resulted in reworks of hits by David Guetta, Passenger, Lana Del Rey and Bruno Mars amongst others. The feedback on these covers by the fans and listeners of Q-Music was extremely positive, which made the band decide to release a selection of the covers on an album. Front-lady Sharon Den Adel: "Our approach was to really make the cover a new Within Temptation song. So not going the easy way by using only a piano or an acoustic guitar for example, but really trying to put all the elements of a Within Temptation track in this new version. It was quite a challenge because we had only one week to get it right, while recording an original Within Temptation song can sometimes takes up half a year! But this pressure also gave us an creative boost and it was very rewarding to get it done in time each week. Also, we learned a lot from the in-depth analysis we needed to make on these hits, written by others, in combination with implementing our own sound and style in each new cover. We are glad that we've taken up this challenge.''

3.0 out of 5 stars "Within Experimentation....". 18 May 2013
Verified Purchase
For anyone who does not already have and love all, or at least most, of WT's back catalogue of all -original work, it's maybe an idea to catch up with all those first , then think about getting this one-off "covers" venture later - just scroll down to "Product Description" to see exactly what's on offer here. These were all recorded live in Q Music radio stations several months back, and some at least can now be viewed on You Tube to help you decide if this is for you or not.

Maybe these are best seen as a set of musical experiments, where it's only to be expected some will work great, some so-so, and some just plain won't... Or then again you might love them all, who knows? What works, or not, for you may turn on if you know /like/dislike the originals . So "Three Stars" here is really to say "If you don't expect too much ,you hopefully won't be disappointed".

For me, several tracks are just too "poppy" to give Sharon's vocals enough space to breathe and shine through as they should. But Tracks 1,2,4,8,9.12 did add up to one very listenable EPs worth - "Behind Blue Eyes" was THE "stand out" track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Within Temptation = brilliance 24 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
WT are my favourite band I absolutely adore them. I love this album, it's really different I love how they've made the songs their own and there's quite a few on there that I don't like the originals of but I love them the way WT do them! I know there are maybe 3/4 songs that they did that couldn't go on the actual album (you can find them online), which is disappointing but this album is still worth it - been listening none stop.

Although it doesn't include all the covers they recorded for the Q Sessions the track listing is amazing. Within Temptation have made most of these tracks their own. I love Within Temptation and I love this album. Stand out tracks for me are 'Radioactive', 'Don't You Worry Child', 'The Power Of Love' and 'Let Her Go'.

Got into Within Temptation last year after, being a big Nightwish fan.
This is an extremely good album of cover songs you would not normally associate them with........

If you like Unforgiving...Silent Force etc , then you will enjoy this some what different approach by this excellent band

I love most of what WT do, particularly the more recent work (The Unforgiving is a cracking album), so when I saw this I had to pick it up.
It's an album of cover versions to celebrate WT's 15th anniversary in the biz, and consists of 11 (mostly) contemporary pop songs re-recorded in a WT style.

I was only familiar with a few (The Who's 'Behind Blue Eyes', Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 'The Power Of Love' Gnarls Barkley's 'Crazy' and OneRepublic's 'Apologise'), but the rest were unknowns. Indeed a few were by people I probably wouldn't look twice at - Bruno Mars? Swedish House Mafia? I'm sure they're very talented, but wouldn't ever show up on my radar.

But in WT's hands, just about every song turns out to be fantastic. Admittedly some take longer to get their hooks into you than others, but they all get there eventually.

I have to give extra credit for two things. One - the cover of 'Summertime Sadness' led me to Lana Del Rey, who I'd never heard of, and her Born To Die album, which is incredible.
And two, there was apparently a Coldplay cover recorded for the sessions, but it's been left off the CD, which is a bonus in my book.

It's a fairly short album at less than 42 minutes, but none the worse for it.
Pop / rock crossover at it's best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Q sessions- a bunch of covers 23 May 2013
Verified Purchase
Excellent set of cover songs from one of my favourite bands/singer. Brings a different 'flavour' to the songs and some are just brilliant. Have a listen on YouTube and make your own mind up, but highly recommended.
