4.0 out of 5 stars Plastic Trees and Ivory Keys... 8 Aug 2006
By Gareth Waterman VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Quite simply a stunning recording. Of course the original songs are remarkable in themselves, and of course the playing is flawless and beautiful, and of course the production is sympathetic, but the real beauty is in the interpretation.

The very concept of a classical version of a rock record should make most of us shiver with fear - this could so easily have become another Classics on 45 (Clayderman does alt.rock?) but O'Reilly re-interprets with such understanding of both his source and modern classical piano work that the resulting execution transcends both.

His love of Radiohead shines through the recording but his playing is both subtle and determinedly passionate at the same time, retaining much of the darker edge of the original songs. As such, the album as a whole should move both fans of the band and devotees of modern classical piano. And, although it is certainly unfortunate that there are so many re-workings of their songs which trivialise the music and dilute the meaning, True Love Waits (and its sequel Hold Me To This) succeeds in drawing new depths from Radiohead's work - and does so quite gloriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic 23 Sep 2006
By Andrew
Format:Audio CD
the love for the music oozes through the panio. there is a tiny bit of a cheesy feel in a few bars, but this is excused by the overall perfection of this 'cover'. Cover is not a fair description though, it really is an interpretation. Bravo. Buy it.
