"Rather Be" Listening to Less Not More, 18 Jan. 2015
More is Less. My take, just buy the hit as a single MP3.
The track order of this CD is awful. A random number generator could do better! It goes from rap to soft to techno. The first track is a " rant" about the group's style. This should be the last track.
The group produced a couple of popular songs ("Rather Be") and the rest are clearly from the left over bin. The album consists of two CDs that try to stretch this out (painfully). The second has many of the same songs as the first, but was recorded with the BBC. While the band's "gig" is combining classical music with pop/techno, most of the times they fail and the combination with the BBC doesn't work and it really doesn't add much value.
Typically I buy the CD because I want full quality sound, especially for classical music. The audio engineering seems good here, but the group's classical solos don't really add as much as I thought they would.
NOTE: This is a review of the album. It is not a review of Amazon's service, which is stellar (or as some would say "Ab Fab").
