3.0 out of 5 stars Haunting February 21, 2006
By Cecilia
Format:Audio CD
I'm giving this compilation 3 stars not because it isn't good...but because I feel that the String Quartet didn't take advantage of The Smiths catalogue. I was disappointed to see that some of my favorites were not covered. Maybe for volume 2?

Other than that...it was mostly beautiful. The cover of "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want" was particularly good. In fact, they managed to make it even more

melancholy than the original! I didn't even know that was possible.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album. April 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful album if you truly are a "Smiths" fan. The strings do an excellent job of masking as Morrissey's voice. However, even if you aren't a fan of The Smiths, the melodies are enjoyable. Johnny Marr will go down as a gifted guitarist/writer (as all his Guitar magazine accolades). People who aren't fans or are "Morrissey-jaded" wouldn't like this or probably anything else not Morrissey. Oh yeah, that's right I said it!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars a little odd October 4, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Uh, this is wierd. It is like Morrissey and the Smiths covering Metalica. It just doesn't fit. Even so, for the hardcore Smiths fan it is worth the buy. Back To The Old HOuse was enjoyable, but I would suggest that you listen to the versions of other artists. And who chose the playlist? Crappy at best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing October 3, 2012
By Josef
Format:MP3 Music
I know that the song selection could be better, but I think they did a good job translating it for an orchestra to play. If you know the songs already it's even more enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worked for The Cure tribute not for The Smiths September 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The String Quartet's tribute to The Smiths doesn't quite work as well as the tribute to The Cure. Maybe it's because the music from The Cure is much more colorful and has more layer and works wonderfully well with string instruments. However, without Morrisey's voice the string music doesn't work well.
