2 stars While the fourth album was made up of all covers, this album is a full fledged (you guessed it) album of Mozart's "greatest hits," preformed by Sky and St. Martin's-in-the-Fields. It's hard to say that this is a Sky album because many times St. Martin's are much more present than any of the Sky members. To my knowledge, this is the best selling Sky album in America, maybe other places too. It's very accessible, and most people have heard at least half of these pieces, even if they know little to nothing about music.

The covers are not the full length versions most of the time, but are still enjoyable. Sometimes, like in "Rondo Alla Turca," Sky put their own twist on things, making it a bit more rokc or jazz or easy listening. I won't go through and describe all the pieces because most everyone has heard them, like I said before. My main gripe is the use of what sounds like a drum machine used very frequently in the background; it ruins some parts by just being there. "A Musical Joke: Presto" starts out nice enough, but by the end there is added techno beats that are just awful, Mozart would be rollng around in his grave haha.

Most hardcore classical fans would probably scoff at this album, but as a Sky fan, I enjoy it. However, I can only recommend this to Sky fans; it's not for beginners whatsoever. 2 stars is enough.
