Just watched Elvis the Searcher on TV and decided to download some of his music and chose this album. It is absolutely brilliant and beautifully done, Pricilla did a great job here and I know he would have been so very proud of this album
Purchased this album, but unable to download half the songs, unless I pay monthly subscription even though I've already paid for the album if this is the furies of iTunes I won't be buying anymore, and will probably not be having another iPhone
This is a fantastic 80th Birthday present for the King. 🎵🎸🎤👑🎂📀🇺🇸
This is Amazing one of best albums in a long time total class
This is a fabulous reworking of Elvis'hits. Just one track is ruined by the inclusion of Michael Buble' on Fever. Why did they do this?
I got some by there lone some and it dropped the full price of one song.
What an incredible album. Well done to everyone involved. Hats off to those very talented musicians and the man with the stick. And of course to the man himself. Presley! There are many talented singers in this world but only the King would have such appeal almost 40 years after his death. I can't imagine such a collaboration with the living, never mind the dead.
This brings me to tears because Elvis already sounds beautiful but to hear his songs like this is just so amazing.
Listen to a very wide spectrum of music love Elvis superb album highly recommend ..
Great, great album, from Burning Love though the album, first class Elvis
Simply stunning! an amazing album, this is Elvis at his best.
Why are old albums still coming back and in top 100.
Better than the originals, love some proper instruments.
Think I have just died and gone to heaven and Elvis is serenading me!! I can hear his beautiful voice stroking me all over - what a gorgeous sexy man!!!
Love it love it!!!
I love this! The orchestration fits so well, it's done really expertly and it improves already brilliant songs
The album is amazing but Burning Love steals the show! The intro is phenomenal.
Best piece of music ever!
What a tribute.
The only thing wrong with this was that he never got chance to do it for real. What a feat of technology, an unbelievable mix. Please let there be more to follow, forget the cost this is timeless.
Amazing that Elvis can be listened too in 2015 and his voice still reveal more of itself than ever. Burning Love is a great example of a great rock n roll song with a strong yet tender voice complementing the hooks perfectly. Wonderful tunes.
The King is amazing as always!
I love this album ... Super, out of this world !!! TCB Mr Presley
This Album is simply fantastic and the arrangements to his classic songs have brought his songs a new lease of life and a new fan base. I at first thought this Album was going to be bland as how can you improve a Elvis song and this album has done just that and made his songs more alive and vibrant to the present day, well done and thanks for making a fantastic album
You will not find a better way to spend a few quid.
Elvis... STILL taking care of business.
This is a great album, perfectly mixing the old school rock and roll of Elvis with the powerful and crisp sounds of the orchestra. Burning Love an absolute anthem here, along with many other great classics to be heard. Amazing!
Both me and my Granda absolutely love this album, truly great for every Elvis obsessed person!!
Elvis lives again in this well defined compilation of his best songs. Carefully produced and not over dubbed with a house beat as in previous hits, Elvis would loved this "In the Ghetto" just brilliant. Yes it's another compilation but with a touch of class without Elvis there would not be pop or rock!
I wrote a review recently and re listened . ... Still stand by what I said before! I can't believe I am actually writing a poor review on my hero. Please buy originals not this hash up. Jive bunny would have done a better job. Even sadder face.
I have always been an Elvis fan and this just blew me away. Read the article in Rolling Stone magazine and you'll understand why and how the album is what it is. Absolutely amazing, get it on loud and it feels like you're at a live show!!
Astounding album and arrangement and if I can dream is an instant hit
No no no no no! This is just tinkering with the great mans voice. I hate it! Simply a cut and paste job. If he was there singing with them there would be a different vibe and yes it would be awesome. However he was not there and has not enhanced what was already classic tracks in any way. Would you take a Picasso and repainted it with emulsion? Simply repackaging his music to sell for the Christmas market. Go buy the originals instead to hear the King as intended. Sad face.
Brilliant, worth the buy. Both new and old fans will enjoy this album. Glad it got to number 1 for 2 weeks. Best album of the year.
Beautiful album! 🎧😘💋💋💋🌹🌹🌹🌹
Like so many Elvis releases - just a load of junk by someone who should have given up in 1960. He was o.k. in the 50's but has far out stayed his welcome. Never a real singer anyway.
I love the hymn ‘How Great Thou Art’ and ‘If I Can Dream’ with the full orchestra sounds fantastic!!
This is just a load of over produced rubbish!
Even the great man murders Bridge over troubled water!
The Philharmonic are rubbish too!
Stick to the original versions and don't get conned into buying this!
One of the best I love elvis and I'm 16
Just elvis songs being raped again.
Just dubbed an orchestra over it. Yawn
Really well done. Love it. I cannot wait for the next one?!?!?!?!?!...
I can't say I was blown away by this at first, but the more I listen to it the more I love it. I first thought the orchestration was over the top and didn't fit with the Elvis's voice, however, American Trilogy, and Bridge Over Troubled Water are 2 that are truly amazing and the more I listen the more I can appreciate the quality of production. The rest are equally as good, and to all the naysayers I would suggest you listen at least 3 or 4 times before totally dismissing this album. I hope a tour is announced using a live orchestra with Elvis's voice and image.
I hope Elvis is looking down and enjoying this album as much as l am, the King will live on forever.
Just an amazing compilation , wonderful
o how the king would have lovesd the was the new album turned out
His voice is perfect, the new backing adds to the epic music that makes elvis a legend.
A fantastic tribute to the king!
The King with the world greatest orchestra ... It is brilliant :-)
I was a bit dubious when I first heard about this "new" album, but after hearing a couple of tracks on the radio I decided to download the album, even though I already have all the songs on various CDs. And I have to say, I'm glad I bought this album. The orchestral backing on the songs that have been selected for this album is superb, and I have to admit, some of the tracks are better than the original. Some of these songs Elvis only ever recorded live in concert, but now they sound like Elvis recorded them in a studio. This is great album and has brought Elvis back to the top of the British album chart. Well done to all involved.
