This string tribute to AC/DC eschews the quartet arrangement favored by Vitamin for these projects, and instead features a fleet of violins, viola, and cellos augmented by bass and drums. All the hits are here — most notably, "Back in Black," "You Shook Me All Night Long," and "Hells Bells" — and these favorites are augmented by classic AC/DC fare such as the anthem "Rock & Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" and "Have a Drink on Me." But while it does a nice job with its set list, the String Quartet Tribute to AC/DC doesn't really have much to say. The songs' robust riffs and blue-collar rhythms translate pretty well, especially to the cello, viola, and bass. But beyond the immediate novelty of hearing these classic cuts churned out on strings, there's little lasting effect.
I was blown away when I first heard this incredible album. It really has a unique sense of musicallity to it. I was introduced to this by my orchestra instructor at school some time ago and I figured I might as well buy it. I love rock and roll but I also love my viola so I guess that this is the perfect balance. I will say that not everyone can appreciate the fact that it is all played with classical or another term would be Baroque instruments (hence the name). I am a bit dissapointed with Itunes' struggles with the record companies though. They have a huge library of music and they are still missing some of the most popular stuff out there. Oh well. All in all, highly reccomended for almost anyone. : )
this is pretty cool i liked back in black and this is a awsome way to play it but i tunes needs the original and all the other real ac/dc stuff
True, iTunes should add AC/DC, but attacking tribute bands will not help that cause. VSQ is not to be listened to as a tribute, but as it's own music based on the original artist. In this niche, VSQ does wonderfully, and should be appreciated by listeners who appreciate the irony of the music. on the whole, I dislike tribute bands who attempt to mimic the original band, but many tribute artists, including VSQ use other songs as fodder to create unique, and enjoyable music. Good Job VSQ!
