4.0 out of 5 stars Grand 27 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A superb collection of Cinerama's first singles, and a great mix of songs from the album "Va Va Voom" and additional B-sides and assorted songs. Like the singer Gedge's old band The Wedding Present, their B-sides contain some of their finest work, and also like the Wedding Present, they prove masters at the occasional cover version, with the Smiths' "London" given an unforgettable makeover.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine collection of indie-pop classics... 7 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
Formed by former Wedding Present singer/songwriter David Gedge and his then partner Sally Murrell, Cinerama would go on to represent the more upbeat and pop-minded side of Gedge's song writing, as he takes the same love-sick subject matter of classic albums like George Best and Seamonsters, and combines it with acoustic guitars, exotic horns, gorgeous strings and, for the first time, cascading synths. This collection, simply titled This Is Cinerama, brings together all the songs from the first four Cinerama singles, which means as well as the great b-sides that make up the second half of this compilation, we also have six-tracks that were originally found on the bands first LP, Va-Va Voom. So, if you're looking for the perfect introduction to the joys of Cinerama... look no further than this.
The collection opens with the great Kerry Kerry, which perfectly establishes the sound, style and ideology of the rest of the music found here... with Gedge offering up a beautifully simple three-minute pop song, perfectly complimented by Murrell's sweet backing vocals and those gorgeous strings. The overall sound of the record is quite continental, reminding me of those early 60's pop songs from people like Françoise Hardy, though crossed with the traditional style of indie-pop employed by bands like The Lightening Seeds, The Divine Comedy and Pulp. Next track, Love, takes the French influence further, beginning with a French language monologue, which then gives way to a gorgeous song that features backing vocals from the Delgados' Emma Pollock (...showing Gedge's desire to endear himself to the Scottish indie scene, perhaps?).

4.0 out of 5 stars This Is Cinerma 12 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
Hey! Aren’t budget albums full of b-sides and remixes supposed to fill a gap for the dedicated fan whilst waiting for the next official release?
Well This is Cinerama certainly is not!
Va Va Voom was an excellent debut for Mr Gedge under the repackaged name of Cinerama, but I think This is Cinerama, goes even one better
In fact I would go so far to say that’s it’s actually the best Cinerama album up to and including the latest release Torino.
Its frothy, sweet, easy on the ear, full of jangly guitars and packed full of great melodies.
It even rocks out and has some fun now and again, only to be reined back in by a more considered sketch or an instrumental, so there is depth as well as throwaway pop in the mix.
Love is delightful, Aur Pair is just gorgeous, Mr Kiss Bang Bang rocks and Pacific is just sublime.
It makes Disco Volante, the official release after Va Va Voom sound almost dull and lack lustre. I know which album I would rather listen to when I feel like a slice of Cinerama.
If you only get one Cinerama album buy This Is Cinerama it’s a gem believe me!

4.0 out of 5 stars i'm biased 16 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had already bought Va Va Voom, Disco Volante and Torino so I bought this one to add tracks that I didn't have already. And as I find generally with Cinerama they are slow burners and take some listening to to appreciate the differences between DLG's work with TWP. Kerry Kerry is my favourite track.Essential purchase for my overall TWP/Cinerama library.
