Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Having cut their teeth in the classical music world, the four beautiful women of the virtuoso string quartet Bond went on to gain pop notoriety with acts such as Primal Scream and Dire Strait's Mark Knopfler. Capturing their Royal Albert Hall debut in 2000, scantily clad violinists Eos and Heylie Ecker, cellist Gay-Yee Westerhoff and viola player Tania Davis are backed by a five-piece rock band and attempt to reinvent classical music for the Spice-Spears set. Like Coyote Ugly in the concert hall, Ecker and Eos spin guitar-god licks on their violins with arrangements that render Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture a five minute dance workout, Bond certainly deliver on their goal. Featuring mainly tracks from their album, "Born," "Live at the Royal Albert Hall" includes a reworking of the James Bond theme and the samba-drenched "Victory-Carnival Mix."

I have been a bond fan since the year 2000. I just recently got this DVD. I love watching it. It is so cool. For the hard core or die hard bond fans it is a must have.
