Default The London Rock Orchestra does Albatross

Have you guys heard this?,00.html

You can get it on iTunes. It starts out sounding almost exactly like the original but then these strings start coming in with a flourish. Then it raises to this majestic wave. I could see them using the original in a movie at the beginning or during the opening credits and using this version for the grand finale where something really big and emotional happens.

Although, I must say. As fun as this is, it's an odd sort of cover because it totally changes the whole feel of the song taking it from a mellow, almost atmospheric, song into this really grand huge thing. But if you Albatross it's definitely worth listening to. And you can buy worse things for a buck.

I haven't really listened to the rest of the album.

I just listened to te samples.
Like you said, it's fun. But no more than that. I don't think I would like to spend about 10 bucks to own this, but it's okay to listen one time and have a smile on your face.
