1 stars Unfortunately, I have to agree with reviewer before me. Why unfortunately ? Because I don't like low ratings, but when it's needed, it's needed. I was hoping for innovative approach on classical music, something not necessarily weird, but not just replace dozens of instrument (of orchestra) by synth sounds.

1(+), so value of this record is very little. Especially given that most of these songs are well known (pouring on us from half of TV ads - for butter, for new furniture center, anything), so hearing them like that isn't exactly interesting.

There could be something interesting done from this material, but the result fails quite a lot. One star for "I can at least stay tuned for all 35 minutes, even I started to feel quite weird towards the end.".
