Another modern String Quartet
I just learned today that I have an alternative to great quartet music besides Apocolyptica. There are String Quartet tributes full of covers from various modern artists. Some of my favorites! (System of a Down, Tool, Disturbed) Good stuff. Only thing is a quartet just isn't enough. It would be better if an entire symphony did these covers. The music just isn't very rich, although its fine in simplicity.
Only thing is, they should now try to come out with more original stuff. The three albums I got only came with two original compositions, which are very good! Apocolyptica's best music is what they wrote, not the covers. I'll keep an eye on VSQ for any other good albums.
"My tapeworm tells me what to do" - System of a down
Although I bet its alot like watching a sequel movie or reading a second series book without partaking of the first one. How do these songs sound to those who've never tasted of the original? Comments...
