Product Description

Product Description

War Child has spent the last three months inviting the best British artists to contribute brand new tracks to a unique on and off-line music project. The bands involved are Radiohead, Razorlight, Gorillaz, Keane and Faultline, Kaiser Chiefs, Magic Numbers, Manic Street Preachers, Zutons, Bloc Party, Antony and the Johnsons, The Coral, Damien Rice, Elbow, Maximo Park, Mylo, Hard-Fi, Emmanuel Jal, Tinariwen, Go! Team, Belle & Sebastian.

Each band has recorded a brand new track--no remixes, no b-sides, no 'versions'--for the project, and did so in 24 hours bridging the 8th and 9th September.

Funds raised by the charity's deal with Independiente Records will immediately go to their projects in Iraq and DR Congo. Further funds, profile and membership raised will go to maintain these projects and others in countries such as Afghanistan and Bosnia over the coming months.

Product Description

This is the follow up to 2000s War Child charity album. All of the 22-tracks are exclusive and previously unreleased. Highlights include, a new version of How You See the World by Coldplay. The track had been previously available in Japan (as an exclusive bonus track on X & Y), but the band remixed it in September 2005 to create a new version with different lyrics for this release. Babyshambles were also a last-minute addition to the line-up of Help: A Day In The Life and have contributed, Bollywood To Battersea. Other hightlights include; Radiohead `I Want None of It, Antony and the Johnsons `Happy Xmas (War is Over), Belle & Sebastian `The Eighth Station of the Cross Kebab House, The Go! Team `Phantom Broadcast, Keane and Faultline `Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Bloc Party `The Present and many more! Independiente.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best compilation album of the year 19 Sep 2005
By VicHoon
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album on download upon its Internet release and have played nothing else since. Good compilations are a mix of the familiar and the unusual, and this is a BRILLIANT compilation. There are a few cover versions - Kaiser Chiefs' version of Heard it through the grapevine is the stand-out cover - but every piece of original material deserves credit.
Elbow, Babyshambles and Bloc Party, bands I previously had little time for, are a revelation, but the two outstanding tracks are by artists I had no previous knowledge of: Belle & Sebastian and Emanual Jal. They are melodic and pack a lyrical punch. By highlighting these tracks I do the others an injustice: everyone will have different favourites but the best thing that can be said is that the album is more than the sum of its parts and the 22 tracks just fly by.
Money well spent, and hopefully, well used by this worthy cause.

5.0 out of 5 stars 24hrs - This is talent!! 27 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bought the Album as soon as it was released and it was beyond expectations! Radiohead was the track everyone was excited for hearing and its touching and magical! Kasier Chiefs cover is absolute brilliant, although not their biggest fan this is 'the track' of the album! Razorlight, Maximo, Elbow Bloc Party & Hard Fi's track are awsome, George & Antony's cover of Happy Xmas has their unique and brilliant style, and Pete D's track is classic Babyshambles (Brill)! Magic Numbers track is lovely, Go! Team also ace! And the rest are just as good.... A must must buy, shows what true talent can do in 24hrs and its all for a good cause!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a great cause! 6 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
Bought this at the weekend along with a few other albums and frankly its ace. There are some slightly suspect tracks (not too keen on the Damien Rice or Gorillaz tracks) but there are some real crackers (The Kaiser Chiefs cover of Heard it through the Grapevine is illegally funky, Maximo Parks and Mylo's tracks are ace as well). Also, any cd with a new Bloc Party tracks gotta be worth it, especial with the money going to such a good cause. Mr T would pity the foo' who doesnt buy this cd.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing Tracks! 3 Nov 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought the album looking forward to belle & sebastians contribution, having read another review and listening to a preview on itunes, but for some reason the zutons and belle & sebastian tracks are absent on this cd, so be wary of that before you but it.
