5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the Year? Quite Possibly, 9 Nov 2010
This review is from: Viva Elvis (Deluxe 2CD) (Audio CD)
As a huge Elvis fan, even I get sick and tired of re-hashed compilations at this time every year. There are only so many 'Lost' tracks that SONY/BMG can get away with. So they tried something different. A little experimentation is good so long as it keeps the integrity of the artist intact. But when I put this on, it was like discovering the King all over again. This puts the modern crop of pretenders in the shade. The music is different, it pumps along with modern beats and big basslines but it's still Elvis' vocal on top that oozes charisma and warmth that you are drawn to. Classics such as 'Burning Love', 'Suspicious Minds', 'Heartbreak Hotel', 'Blue Suede Shoes' and 'King Creole' all get the five-star treatment whilst the 'Love Me Tender' and 'Can't Help Falling In Love' duets are beautifully re-created. This album is too good to pass-up. Definitely a contender for Album of the Year. Cannot recommend highly enough, even for the casual music lover.
