The idea behind British Rock Symphony is to take some of the greatest songs in British classic rock, give them bombastic orchestral arrangements, sequence them as a symphony, and hire a handful of veteran rockers to sing them. What a bad idea. There is an audience for this, as the symphonic re-workings of Pink FloydQueenand Led Zeppelin songs have proved, but those were instrumental albums and weren't quite as pretentious as British Rock Symphony.
Make no mistake, BRS is intended to Pink the weight and substance -- that's why there's a "Peace Suite" and a "Celebration Suite," and that's why there's a full orchestra, choir, and rock band.
They make a self-important racket -- and for no good reason. And the suites are ill-conceived. Who thought "Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. Who thought the desperate "" was celebratory?
Who decided that Paul Rodgers should sing "Blackbird"? This is such a monumental misreading of the original material and miscasting of a motley group of musicians that The British Rock Symphony does spark some curiosity, but it's neither good music nor good kitsch.
