2.0 out of 5 stars ELP, 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Very Best Of... (Audio CD)
The music sounds a little bit out of date and over indulgent. I bought it for 'Fanfare for the Common Man', which is still a good track. The others are so so. A true fan, which I am not, would get the 'Essential ELP Collection' rather than this. What you can say is that at this price, I haven't lost much.

The quality isn't the best. There are only so many Hawaian slide guitar songs that I can listen to, without getting bored. I bought it to go with holiday film, so it won't be played much.

What a pleasing record this is. The instruments all sound very clear. The standard of muscianship is really good. It sets a lovely ambient background mood. I will use it to accompany camcorder footage. I wish it could have been longer.

Warning Avoid this like the plague. It is truly dreadful. The majority of songs sound like they are illegal bootlegs, the quality being absolutely abysmal. The renditions only pay a passing resemblance to the original recordings. There are one or two good tracks but they are few and far between.

It's a mixed bag. The Eagles tracks are very quiet and the sound quality is poor. Some tracks are truly awful. While others are quite listenable. The second track "all night long" didn't download in full. Amazon have since pulled the album from sale.

Overall I am pleased with this purchase. But I have noticed it would have been cheaper to buy 2 x 16 GB instead, hence the 4 star rating.

Ennio Morricone has turned out some truly memorable film scores over the years with his unique style and passion for what he does. This album is another classic Morricone contribution. I enjoyed the film so much I decided to get the soundtrack as well. I find it fits the movie brilliantly.

Good old Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, they really do a first class job on reproducing film scores and this is no exception. It's splendid.

Despite not seeing any of these films, I bought this album, having first listened to it on spotify. It has a mixture of the funk and jazz you associate with Stanley Clarke, but it also has some orchestral pieces which work really well. I give it a deserving 4 out of 5.
