Kashmir: The Symphonic Led Zeppelin

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Since Us and Them -- Symphonic Pink Floyd was such an unexpected success, a sequel was in order, so conductor Peter Scholes, Killing Joke's Youth and Jaz Coleman, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra decided to set their sights on another classic rock titan: Led Zeppelin. Although Zeppelin was known as the king of heavy metal, their music was actually subtle and textured, which makes it perfect for these lush, grandiose orchestral arrangements. Weirdly enough, these symphonic arrangements emphasize the compositional skills of Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Robert Plant, and John Bonham, since these replicate the dense arrangements of Zep records, only with ...

Weirdly enough, these symphonic arrangements emphasize the compositional skills of Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Robert Plant, and John Bonham, since these replicate the dense arrangements of Zep records, only with symphonic instruments. Certainly hard-line rock and classical fans will object to the very idea behind Kashmir: Symphonic Led Zeppelin, but it's a surprising, even rousing, success with very little camp value at all.

    Superb

    Not to be heard on lo-fi; this deserves good hi-fi. Have some stimulant, turn it up to 11 and ENJOY!

    Incredible sound...

    I was a big fan of this album. It features incredibly powerful orchestral renditions that are performed very admirably--with a noticeable international colour.

    Interesting Twist on Zep with Smoothness of an Orchestra

    It has a wordly tone but that's how Zeppelin wrote their music, from Morocco to the Carribean. It twists some songs a bit with Kashimir having an eery violin solo for Plant's vocals. But I think even that is quite successful. Stairway is a rousing success touching all emotional realms as does the original. This disc should be found in all Zeppelin fans' collections. Especially those who like classical music.
