Editorial Reviews

Viva ELVIS - The Album, is a 21st century celebration of Elvis and his music, featuring the voice of the king in a whole new context.

The undisputed King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, remains one of the most iconic and powerful forces in popular culture. "Before Elvis," said John Lennon, "there was nothing." After Elvis, the world looked and sounded different. With a swivel of his hips and the power of his voice, Elvis broke down barriers and shattered the status quo, revolutionizing the worlds of music, film and fashion, while signaling a seismic shift in gender, class, race, and generational relationships.

The Elvis revolution continues with Viva ELVIS - The Album.

This postmodern studio masterwork invokes the spirit and essence of Elvis from a contemporary perspective, while furthering the revolutionary impulses of Elvis' sound. Viva ELVIS - The Album re-imagines the king’s own vocal performances in a broad variety of new musical settings. This new sound echos Elvis' own versatility and ability to master all music genres, from Delta blues to rockabilly, from raw soul to gospel, from Southern folk to Vegas pop, while incorporating elements of garage rock, punk, urban and hip-hop.

Customer Reviews

Everything is great the music, the singers, the arrangement.
La Terre Promise
Its not that I am a purist and I could forgive a little tweaking here and there, but this offering is just NOT rock and roll from the King of Rock and Roll.
Amazon Customer
I saw the Elvis Cirque du Soliel in Las Vegas and it was great.

I agree with everything Tumbler said. I share his exact sentiments, and I'm enjoying this album.

BUT Viva Elvis is like a 90 minute show, right? So why do we have a 35 minute album? This makes me so angry because I've been waiting for this. And I was especially waiting to have "One Night With You" on CD, but it's not here. Nor are the great re-workings of "Return to Sender", "Hound Dog", and "It's Now or Never". Of course, if you've never seen the show, then you won't miss these tasty jams, but if you have seen the show, then you're in for BIG disappointment.

The album Executive Producers really blew it. Beatles Love has 26 tracks (26 TRACKS!!!), and here we only get a measly... 10, basically...

Super disappointed.

I have just listened to 'Viva Elvis' - The Album and I am not afraid to say I am in tears. It is PHENOMENAL and the sound AMAZING. Truly a listening and emotional experience and genuinely revolutionary in concept which should give it an excellent chance for a Grammy Award next year. This is truly Elvis for the 21st Century.

The whole album is built around a biographical theme with comments from Elvis, Ed Sullivan, Bill Black, Milton Berle etc. and snippets of other Elvis songs apart from those listed on the album cover. This is one album that I will be playing a lot and not just once or twice. Yes, we would have liked more tracks but the ones on the album are longer than usual apart from 'Memories' and 'You'll Never Walk Alone' which are linking themes as shown below. I would also have liked to have had the names of the individual female singers featured on the duets.

The album cover is very colorful, contemporary, and features a booklet containing many scenes from the 'Viva Elvis' show with details of the cast etc. Now on to my review:

1. Opening
The album opens with the strains of what is commonly known by Elvis fans as 'The 2001 Theme' together with females screaming and chanting "We Want Elvis". Great drums featured in the background. Elvis himself comments 'If You're Looking For Trouble'. There are also historical comments from Ed Sullivan and track 1 commences a countdown into track 2. A fitting start to the album.

2. Blue Suede Shoes
Heavy version with drums and harmonica up front. Has a distinct Bo Diddley feel to it and again comments from Ed Sullivan and Milton Berle. Lots of sound wizadry here.

Whenever there are "remixes" with Elvis songs, you know hot buttons will be pressed any certain people will be irate. These songs are not "remixed" a la "Little less Conversation" but are certainly new arrangements, using new instrumentation, in some cases, a duet co-vocalist, and the modern recording technology to preserve and enhance the sound quality of his voice. Elvis always loved improved recording technology (check out his Madison Sqare Garden interview) and in this album his voice is presented in clear, pristine quality. People will have different feeligns about the arrangements but I believe that the vast majority of Elvis fans feel grateful to have a great "new" Elvis CD to listen to. These version in no way diminish the originials and I'll listen to both. The Elvis Presley Estate has been so much more protective of Elvis's music than his management was in his lifetime, you know this is a recording made with love and respect. It's also really good music. I love it.

These are amazingly imaginative remixes of Elvis's best-known songs. I wasn't aware of the Cirque Du Soleil when I saw this album as a new release. I grabbed it from eMusic, and am surprised as just how much fun it is. Whether it's "Burning Love" redone as a 70s'-Who-like power song, or tended duets of "Love Me Tended" or "Can't Help Falling In Love", the album is a joy to listen to. If you liked the Beatles "Love" album from a few years back, you'll like this.

I'm all for remixing the songs of Elvis. I loved 2001's remix of "A Little Less Conversation," a Nike commercial that turned into a huge worldwide hit and put Elvis past the Beatles for number one hits in England (Fab Four 17, E 18).

I saw VIVA ELVIS in Vegas last summer and will probably see it again. The show itself made some odd choices, I thought. Having Colonel Tom Parker act as host to the show was a strange move, considering how most Elvis fans blame the side-show carnival huckster for blowing movie deals (Elvis in MIDNIGHT COWBOY or A STAR IS BORN), taking 50% (or more) of everything while Elvis went into his quick, self-destructive spiral, and generally taking any deal that didn't involve much effort to keep the king on top. A few quibbles aside, the show could absolutely blast out some numbers that Elvis himself probably never heard. I thought the "Hound Dog" finale, with three drummers shaking the rafters, was going to bring the roof down.

When I heard they were releasing a CD of the show, I didn't run out to get it right away...but I should have. I didn't realize it would be such a carefully-recorded set of songs, thinking it would be just a recording of the show.

The new remixes of "Burning Love" and "Suspicious Minds" (both music videos can be found online) are awesome. The pounding drums on the former tap into that first primal energy of rock and roll that was unleashed on the world all those years ago. The new arrangement on the former highlights all the pain and suffering (which was always there in Elvis' voice) to bring the song a new poignancy.

I hope they release a more complete version from the show. And I'd welcome new remixes. Elvis has always been that flexible. And timeless.

Always something missing, What's the point?
I haven't seen the show, but I thought this was going to be something like The Beatles' Love. I was expecting something between 25 and 40 songs. When I saw the short list of song I kinda lost interest. Not that the songs are bad, obviously not, but I was expecting more. Are they remixes like... Read More

Obviously you haven't been to the show or heard the music. You WILL be pleasantly suprised. I, too, was never a fan of the "remixes"......until now! Hold on, it's a wild ride!!
