The String Quartet Tribute to Velvet Revolver

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Vitamin's String Quartet Tribute to Velvet Revolver is an instrumental interpretation of the hard rock supergroup's debut album, performed by two violinists, a violist, and a cellist. It's the latter instruments that really stand out. They carry the album's chugging and churning bottom end as the variously layered and interlocking violins recreate the vocal melodies. Standouts include "Big Machine," "Dirty Little Thing," and especially the softer "Fall to Pieces," which features a beautiful cello/viola duet. There's also a version of the Velvet Revolver hit "Slither" that really nails the song's power and decadence.
