Viva Elvis is a 21st century celebration of Elvis and his music, featuring the voice of the king in a whole new context. The undisputed King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, remains one of the most iconic and powerful forces in popular culture. This postmodern studio masterwork invokes the spirit and essence of Elvis from a contemporary perspective, while furthering the revolutionary impulses of Elvis' sound, re-imagining the king’s own vocal performances in a broad variety of new musical settings. This new sound echos Elvis' own versatility and ability to master all music genres, from Delta blues to rockabilly, from raw soul to gospel, from Southern folk to Vegas pop, while incorporating elements of garage rock, punk, urban and hip-hop.
This deluxe edition includes a second disc featuring the original songs.

Also the choice of songs and the programme running order make a good new album from old material.
There are two versions of the release available. One is just the new remix album on its own. The other is the "deluxe edition" which has two discs, the remix album on cd 1, and the original tracks on cd2. Its interesting to hear both versions and I enjoyed playing the songs twice since the original mixes are fantastic and still sound great and the remixes are different enough to make it a uniqe release.
Its an excellent release for young and old.
With over 50 reviews already on this album there isn't much I can add in its support. Though I enjoyed Burning Love the least, I can honestly say I thoroughly relished all the remixed tracks here. Impressively, and most importantly, they STILL SOUNDED ELVIS.
What distinguishes these remixes from other horrible amateur attempts to bring Elvis into the 21st century is the bluesy-rock dance instrumentation. No childish technocrap anywhere in sight. And that's the difference.
These are the best remix songs since JXL's brilliant A Little Less Conversation in 2002. Of course, not everybody will like this album. That would be impossible. Hardcore older fans may not appreciate anyone meddling with Elvis songs, and I do reason with that to a large degree. But the musical arrangements on this collection are so fantastic I had to give in.
And look at the price now. I bought several copies and gave them out to friends and relatives. They've not listened to much else since then!
This album is innovative whereas I feared that Sony/BMG would play it safe by sticking to the trusted formula of the original songs - and not adding a contemporary enough edge to the remix. This album is a respectful contemporisation of some well know Elvis songs. Personally, I wish Sony/BMG would have been a little more daring with their song choices and opted for lesser known tracks such as Edge of Reality and Let Yourself Go - but have no doubt about it - this album works! My main criticism is that the album is too short but it is still worth the price tag.

I love this album.
Of course it does not surpass the originals , it's just a different take.
A few of these I really like and add poignancy and something new and unexpected to classic Elvis - It's Alright, Bossa Nova Baby, King Creole, Burning Love - but the rest just more... Read morePublished 12 months ago by POC
