I miss hearing the real strings, in pop songs, that I grew up listening to in the 60s and 70s. Listen to "A Natural Woman" to decide if you'll like this album. This "alternative" version of Aretha's music is far better than anything Kellyanne Conway could come up with.
Thank God for Aretha Franklin!!!!!!,.You will surely be missed,...God blessed your voice!!!
First of all, you cannot compare Elvis to Aretha, both were/are tops in their genre of music. Secondly, it doesn't matter if Aretha is alive or not, it's the music, the pure music, that came from this particular production. Like Paul McCartney has been saying for the past ten years, if you can reach a whole new younger audience with the music that made you great (The Beatles), then you've succeeded. Like with Elvis, here Aretha's music purely succeeds. It's not like re-packaging a greatest hits collection, it's to give songs a new side and with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, that does so.
I came upon this album after reading an enthusiastic review from a respected audiophile magazine, so I added it to my Roon library so I could stream it in glorious MQA. It was everything that I expected. A thoughtfully remastered and blended melding of the old and the new. But the review glaring back to me from my iPad was almost a polar opposite of my experience and the review I had previous read in my audiophile magazine. I suppose this can be a matter of preference. Yes your mileage may vary too. But my sound system is humming along, my toes are tapping, and I’m smiling from ear to ear. I think this album deserves a bit more R E S P E C T. Just a little bit.
As a long time fan of Aretha Franklin I purchased this album as i have purchased all her albums, but with this album I didn't really see the point.The originals sound as good as they were and adding a little bit of music at the beginning of each song does nothing to improve it.Also they have ruined Angel, my favourite Aretha song, adding background vocals that are not necessary in the parts they have been added to.
First, let's be honest - this is a remix project. But what a remix project it is!Miss Franklin's music gets the royal treatment, but that's what one does when they are dealing with the Queen. With velvety, sweeping arrangements, I honestly believe this is what Aretha with a Philharmonic would sound like - heavenly.One last thing - the version of "Holy Moses" (Border Song) is a theological statement all on it's own, and Aretha, being a gospel girl at heart, preaches a sermon in song.
I listened to this CD twice before I realized the strings were there!! There was no need to "reimagine" Aretha's great works with stings, they are already beautiful as they are. Would not recommend this to any younger listener to introduce them to her fine music either.
