I am a keen fan of Radio 1's 'Live Lounge', and have collected all of the albums. However, like I said about fourth entry, released in 2009, 2010's 'Volume 5' doesn't rank anywhere near as the best. Don't get me wrong here, there's still some very good stuff on it, but not enough for me to rate it the usual four stars. I know that what's bad and what's good is personal preference only, so what I don't like, might be something that other people love.

I will say that it is overall slightly better than the previous, and wish I could rate it 3.5 stars. I never thought I'd say that Kylie Minogue provided one of the highlights, but I adore her cover of Hurts' 'Wonderful Life', which is an awesome song anyway. I always enjoy haring artists perform songs that they wouldn't normally record, and other magic moments from me come via electric rock duo The Big Pink's superior cover of Beyoncé's 'Sweet Dreams', which suits the mood more than the original, You Me At Six, the emo-band do a cool take on Ellie Goulding's 'Starry Eyed', and indie-pop band Scouting For Girls version of 'Don't Stop Believin' makes me very happy.

Of course, it's always good to hear artists perform their own songs, stripped back, and Mumford and Son's 'The Cave' and Paloma Faith's 'New York', both favourites of mine, sound little different to the recorded versions, but still give me goosebumps nonetheless.

'Volume 5' isn't a bad entry in the 'Live Longue' CDs, but it isn't the best. Thankfully, 'Volume 6' would prove to be a real return to form, with a role call of British talent, including Miles Kane, Ed Sheeran, Adele, The Kooks, The Vaccines, and Noah and the Whale. Yes, I'm an indie-pop/rock fan.

I bought this without even looking at the tracks, based on how much i like the other live lounge albums. Sadly i don't think many of the songs will make it to my ipod and i will probably be ebaying the CD.
Most of the artists seem to sing the songs as originally performed, the best thing for live lounge for me was seeing how the artist put their own sound on a track.

All in all, its not a *bad* album, but i wish i'd waited and bought it in the bargain basement ;)

Not as good as I hoped it would be... quite dissapointing generally.
Some poor covers & in some instances the less talented have simply reproduced their own material much the way you would hear the original... why? what's the point of that? we want to hear a clever variation; maybe acapella or perhaps accompanied only by the odd acoustic guitar (or violin) with a changed tempo thrown in for good measure.

To be fair there are some gems (such as Marina & the Diamonds cover of 'Starstrukk') but you need to plough through a lot of dross to find them. Would not recommend parting with your cash unless paying less than a fiver!

Not one of the best!!

My my, Live Lounge, how the mighty have fallen

I will start by saying that I am a huge fan fan of the Live Lounge, always intrigued as to how certain artists will twist their own works for radio performance and of course what on earth they may be covering.

But ever since Fearne Cotton took over the main Live Lounge show, with Jo Whiley relegated to weekends, the quality of performers has suffered a tremendous downturn. And this compilation shows that more than ever.

Instead of trawling through the archives for those rare treats, we're subjected to VERY recent and disappointing additions by nomarks like You Me at 6, Travie McCoy and All Time Low. In whose right mind does Alesha Dixon's "Drummer Boy" come to when thinking of the year's best live lounges? Even more disappointing is some of the choices - Mumford & Sons are a great band and more than deserving of a place here - but surely their version of Vampire Weekend's "Cousins" should have been placed here.

There are some great performances here - Kelis sounds wonderful, Taio Cruz does a great version of Mumford, surprises from Hurts, Kelly Rowland and the mighty Dave Grohl are very welcome. And Marina & The Diamonds prove with their cover of 3Oh!3 that it IS possible to polish a turd!

There's one CD worth of great tracks here, but a lack of picking out past Live Lounge greats in favour of current big names makes for a disappointing listen

First of all let me just say how much I love this album, A LOT!

I think I own all of the Live Lounge CD's, this time I went for Amazon's download service which worked great on my MacBook Pro, very quick and easy to download, install and then download the album, and its great quality too.

Anyway, the album, as I previously mentioned I own all of the Live Lounge's but this one has to be my favourite. It has a wide variety of music and I was quite surprised to find that I liked some of the tracks, which were by artists that I usually don't like. That's the great thing about the live lounge, threes a lot of good live songs, but tonnes of unique original covers!

Live Lounge is great. Definitely worth the money (especially with the low Amazon price and free delivery).
I should mention that its a slower burner than volumes 1 and 2, and because of the vastly different styles there are bound to be some tracks you like less than others. Starry eyed is great as its more acoustic than the original, also wonderful life by kylie, n-dubz doing different material and Kelly Rowland underdog are all fantastic. Added in that it is a double CD and its a no brainer.
