Shakespeare
1 stars This is a lacklustre, electric version of his debut masterpiece. Though it has been completely re-written, the format and the structure are identical. Unfortunately, he uses way too many gadgets and gizmos to make it sound authentic, and the MC's voice is much worse here than on the original. Mike's always been unsatisfied with the original, but re-doing it like this will just make more albums for him to feel unsatisfied about. I also find that boredom ensues much easier and quicker on this version than the original. The imagery, the atmosphere, and overall feel of the original have been sacrificed for some polish. This is only for Oldfield die-hards.
Shakespeare | 1/5 |
