Anyone heard this or any of their other albums? Some of the tracks are based on classical works performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra such as, Pachelbel's Canon, snippets of Swan Lake, the Nutcracker, Carmen's Habanera, Brahms' Hungarian Dance no. 5, Barber's Adagio for Strings, but mixed and overdubbed with layers of African, electro, Latin and hip-hop beats. Sounds kind of silly and disposable, but might be fun for some. Apparently their last album was banned from appearing on the UK Classical charts because of the beats
BTW - I'd never heard of them before - it just popped up on the front page when I stopped by amazon.com and some of the words above are paraphrased from their description
Oh, Bond have a new album out? I'll have to get it. I have their previous two, and the DVD...they're pretty good, if you're into that whole Vanessa Mae, et al thing. There's this whole pop/classical crossover movement in the UK. If you look at the top of their classical charts (for example, "of all time"), there's a lot of that crap up there. Bond are, by far, not the least excessive of that.
