"The Song Diaries" by Bextor released today

Recommended Posts

So the long-awaited orchestral greatest hits from Sophie Ellis-Bextor was released today. What are your opinions about the new versions for her hits? I'm absolutely in love with those from the songs I already enjoyed in their original versions, and amazingly loving the ones for those songs which I originally didn't like, like "Move This Mountain".

I like some songs, but I agree, many of the arrangements are messy or boring.  

Also, where's Come With Us?  Starlight? Off & On?

It doesn't work. The arrangements could have been done better. Orchestra gives so many possibilities. Her voice drowned in these arrangements.

They’re just so damn flat. Murder has started growing on me, but the rest have been drained to within an inch of their epic lives. The slaughtering to tracks 4 through 11 is criminal. It’s almost unforgivable.


SEB7 better be lurking in the wings with some garlic, holy water, and a cross just in case Ed Harcourt tries to claw his way in. The good sis better come through. She hasn’t been present on one of my weekend playlists in quite some time.
