The covers of Furious Angels is more resonant and sad than the original, while Chateau is probably the best song on the disc. I just wish they did a cover of the original Chateau Swashbucking cue Davis had written - that would make for a much better string quartet song.
This CD isn't quite as good as Apocalyptica, but if you like their remakes of Metallica and other heavy metal songs, plus if you like classical in general, you'll probably like this CD.
Apocalyptica somehow captures the speed and intensity of even the most driving speed-metal they remake. Some of these Restrung versions of fast Matrix songs, however, are slower renditions(other reviewer mentioned the Manson song, and it is definitely slower).
Don't believe the detractors, this CD is NOT as bad as Pat Boone's "In A Metal Mood" :)
Sample the Marilyn Manson and Deftones covers. Almost defies words.
You are better off buying the real soundtracks/scores.
