Foo Fighters' "I'll Stick Around" is another highlight; the musicians really nail its raucous chorus. Instrumentally Strung Out is pretty similar throughout, working with various groupings of violin, viola, cello, double bass, and occasionally contrabass. Listeners who take a liking to this set should explore the Vitamin Records catalog of string tributes, which runs wide and deep through nearly every form of pop music imaginable.
