1.0 out of 5 stars William Orbit wants to be Richard Clayderman, 21 Jan 2000
I found this very disapointing. Orbit has done some great work in the past but he brings nothing but sugar to these pieces. Classical music can be succesfuly reworked by new interpreters (witness Goodbye 20th century by Sonic Youth) but these versions bring nothing to the party. They are very pretty but have little or no depth. If you have bought this go and lookup the original pieces and see what I mean.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing, 10 Nov 1999
This review is from: Temperamental (Audio CD)
I found this record a bit of let down after Walking Wounded and Missing. The music is fine but a little bit by the book. There are a few moments where it stands out but they are rare. The worst thing are the lyrics though. EBTG have until now always managed to write songs that touch you in some way but the words on this album are mundane and dull. EBTG seem with this release to have lost their way a bit and the sparkle has gone - lets hope its just temporary.
