    Hold my ears!

    Best wishes to Bond -- all hopes that they will succeed in their material, I mean, musical goals. If these goals are to break into the pop scene and make a living as a musician/hottie-icon, then by all means, they are well on their way. But for me, a classically trained musician, these tracks are the musical equivalent of a sewer system in Bombay. I can only hope that they are happy with where they are and do not blame them for their endeavors -- just don't ever make me listen to it again. The beats are awkward and do not hold the groove for the lyrical line stolen from the dead white guys. Segues between sections are nonexistent and cause physical discomfort to the listener. The actual string technique is okay, but not spectacular and if all this isn't enough, the juvenile exclamatory cries in some of the songs are, well, is there a word that expresses the feeling of being embarassed for someone else?

    Clouded music

    After only previewing their album, I'm saddened by the lack of musicality of the arrangements. Barber's Adagio, a piece I would describe as almost inherently humanly sacred, is simply clouded by the pounding drums and unneccesary fill. Even one of the Bond fans agrees with me on this point. Don't apologize for music by disguising it with percussive and effectual elements; there is no need to make an excuse for some of the greatest tunes ever written. If you are a fan of classical crossover, I would highly suggest other groups that at least know when a piece has entered the popular music spectrum or will transfer smoothly. These pieces do not.

    Abominable

    This is an abomination. I was disappointed to find there was no rating less than 1 star.
