Radio 1's live lounge album review, 7 Jun. 2007
Review of Album- Radio 1's live lounge
This album is one of the best mixers I have ever listened to. The songs are well know and slightly dated but this does not detract from the album at all, because the songs aren't all sung by their original artists (cover versions) the album has an edge which I adore.
The acoustic is amazing because all the songs were recorded in a small studio so some of them are narrowed down to small bands and usually one singer. Each new artist has added their own individuality to the song so each interpretation is very different. The album covers all aspects of music and is great for everyone. Some songs will have your head banging and others are relaxing and slow.
My personal favourite song is "Numb" by "Jamelia" it's a fab track to listen to with your mates.
As with all best of albums no-one will ever be totally happy with the track list, but because of the wide range I think with this one most people would be as close as you could be.
Definitely pick up this album, it's such a great idea and has been produced perfectly. I can't wait until the second album is release.
