Customer Reviews

Not quite elevator music, but...

It's not far from it! I mean, the talent of these classical musicians obviously sets them apart from most of what you hear played in the elevator, but I MUST agree with another reviewer who said something like, "I grew up listening to these songs, and the originals are just too sacred to me." There's something about hearing the vocal lines of Bizarre Love Triangle played (exquisitely, admittedly) on solo violin that just makes me cringe. Litmus gets serious kudos for their obvious talent as musicians...props all. However, I just can't get past the fact that they're trying this with songs that just don't go where they want them to in almost every single case on this album. I'm sorry, but I just can't rate this based on musicianship. I've got to be honest with myself, and this just isn't for me. If you're looking for an opera-house rendition of your favorite pop hit of yesteryear, then you've found your album. If you were looking for creative and original covers that take the songs into the next millenium, then I'm afraid that you're going to be terribly disappointed.

Alternative Elevator

What the elevator at the Hacienda probably sounded like. I am sure it is a novelty for some, doesn't work for me. I grew up listening to these songs and the originals are just too sacred to me. Not my cup o' tea.


Litmus is absolutly incredible. The tunes from The Smiths "This Charming Man" and Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" manage to almost upgrade the tune from it's original form. Of course the original versions of all of these songs are still incredible by themselves and I would definatly recomend getting the originals before taking a listen to Litmus.

The band's penchant for theatricality (elaborate visual and audio presentations accompany their live shows) and epic jams that can go anywhere from four minutes to thirty has landed them numerous gigs with notable space rock practitioners like Hawkwind, Julian Cope, and Ozric Tentacles. Litmus, which is comprised of Anton (electronics),...
