2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing - lacks any feeling for that era., 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Far, Far from Ypres (Audio CD)
I agree wholeheartedly with Mrs V Biggs and wish I had taken note of her review. The songs are quick, short melodies sung by some obscure Scottish 'Pals' band and lack any emotional involvement or atmosphere for the Great War. It's a bit like listening to supermarket Muzak or akin to the old Black & White Minstrels, even the poems lack depth from the narration and, although obviously have affected some listeners, didn't affect me as such poems should do from those tragic times. I was probably taken in a bit by the excellent cover but given it two stars because there are two CDs.
