3.0 out of 5 stars Famous Belgians
On paper, this CD has all the elements of a school concert nightmare; a choir of teenage Belgian schoolgirls and two classical pianists covering an eclectic mix of pop, rock and indy tunes. Bizarrely, though, it mostly works, especially with a haunting and quite touching version of U2's With Or Without You as the outstanding track. Foo Fighters' Walking After You is...

This review is from: On The Rocks (Audio CD)
On paper, this CD has all the elements of a school concert nightmare; a choir of teenage Belgian schoolgirls and two classical pianists covering an eclectic mix of pop, rock and indy tunes. Bizarrely, though, it mostly works, especially with a haunting and quite touching version of U2's With Or Without You as the outstanding track. Foo Fighters' Walking After You is transformed into something poignant and dreamy and even Radiohead's Exit Music (For a Film) survives the choral treatment. Much of the effect derives just from the idea of young girls singing such diverse tracks as Perfect Day or Morissette's 21 Things I Want in a Lover (better than the original, I feel). It's a brave experiment to so radically re-interpret songs which are so familiar and which mean a lot to a lot of people, but if you are willing to open your ears, you will find most of the original songs are strong enough to take it. Some of the material doesn't work – Sinead O'Connor's Daddy I'm Fine is not a great song to start with, and the inclusion of The Divinyl's I Touch Myself leads to the suspicion that someone just wanted to hear schoolgirls singing suggestive lyrics. But program your CD wisely and you have a great chillout listen. You go, girls
