It shouldn't work! But it does, does, does!
John Lewis gave Millie massive exposure on their Christmas advert and if it hadn't been for that I probably wouldn't have given this album a second look. As a result of it being featured on Amazon's Album of the Week email I surfed to the album's internet page and set it to play all of the samples. What I was presented with was a series of slow moving interpretations of 80s classics. The simplicity of the sound is what makes it for me, a solitary piano and Millie's haunting voice providing the structure for most of the songs. Thankfully, it has not been over-produced with full orchestral backing as I think that would have completely missed the point.
Try it! Go and play the samples and, if you like the originals, I bet these renditions will bring a smile to your face.

If there were more stars available I would give them. Like some other reviewers I bought it because of the John Lewis advert. However, I have now discovered every other track is brilliant too. There are some brave cover tracks on there but she has pulled them all off incredibly well. I have been playing the album on a loop and nothing else on my iPod is getting a look in at the moment.

I got this on the strength of the advert - I'm guessing that is how most of us will have heard of her. It is one of those rare albums where if it is playing in the background, every now and then you will stop what you are doing and think - wow, whats this? I played it during a meal with friends and several times we broke our conversation to identify the songs.

It will particulary appeal to those who know the original tracks - the covers are very different to most of them: often pared right back, with just voice and piano, sometimes with a cello. It's probably the album that Birdy should have done!

Having discovered 'Slow Moving Millie' from the John Lewis Christmas ad. I was going to purchase the song... until I noticed that Amazon had the album - what a lovely selection of chilled out covers. :) Some interesting choices too.

Christmas present from the wife, what an excellent voice which starts of with 5 excellent tracks, but then seems to struggle to find remaining tracks of similar quality. With the right material she will be great.
Unfortunatly this is not quite it. Great idea with some fine choices but once these were used up the rest are fillers. Luckily only 2 or three not up to the mark. As for the production as previously commented if your playeing on a quality system it is dissapointing with overblown piano on some tracks and hit miss quality on others.
This voice deserved the finest re-production, unfortunatly didn't get it. Great for back ground music or casual listen. Serious listners will be dissapointed though

Love this album, play it every day. She had a beautiful voice and all the songs she had chosen are brilliantly covered. Excellent value for money and in very good condition.

Like many others I bought this on the back of the John Lewis ad and the somewhat embarrassing appearence (for RB at least) on the Richard Baker show on 5 Live. It gives you what it says on the tin - more breathy delivery of 80s classics with stripped down backing. Not completely sure that is enough to keep me engaged for the entire CD.

Loved her Smiths' cover & so checked out the other tracks on the album before downloading. Love at first listen...& better & better each time I play it. Exquisite voice, stripped back arrangements & a really original take on the cover tracks. For me there are no fillers - every track is brilliant, with 'Please, please...' & 'Power of love' being my stand-outs. Anyone complaining that Renditions isn't uplifting seems, in my view, to have missed the point. I can't believe anyone would be expecting an upbeat album after hearing the John Lewis advert - much less if they'd checked out the samples. For me, this collection of moody, haunting melodies is perfect - chillout music that is never bland and works equally well as a soothing backdrop or music I can completely immerse myself in. Highly recommended whether you know the originals or not.
