While these are instrumental chamber arrangements of classic Smiths songs, the arrangements are still colored most by the hangdog melancholy of Morrissey, rather than any afterglow of Johnny Marr's guitar workouts. You can almost hear his self-obsessed croon floating behind the violins in "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others," and "This Charming Man," while "How Soon Is Now" is revealed to be rather boring without Marr's classic guitar line. The Vitamin label has even done a respectable job of replicating the Smiths' famous cover-star album art, with its sepia boxer photo.
Although Clubbed to Death is no way as good as the original, it is still pretty good. When the World ends and Furious angels are brilliant.
WAY better than expected!
When i purchased this item I thought to myself 'oh no, not another modern string quartet, why should i bother'. A while later my opinion was completely changed as i discovered stylish tunes, excellent beats, and overall pretty excellent violin playing, an album definitely worth buying.
Amazing album although why does itunes not have Rob Dougans music??? Cmon itunes keep up
