5 Wonderful!toxina90 | 16/05/2009 | See all toxina90's reviews (162)Top 100 Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer Top 10 Music Reviewer I have eagerly awaited the release of Escala's first album after being impressed with them on Britain's Got Talent, I knew even if they didn't win they would surely secure a record deal.The string quartet are a fresh and funky new wave of classical crossover artists, which instantly evoke memories of our other British/Australian quartet Bond and the lesser known group Wild (from which Chantal and Izzy from Escala used to be a part of).Escala are supremely talented and I was delighted with the quality of this debut. It seems like they have built on the style and success of Bond and Wild and created their own unique charm and sound.Their amazing rendition of 'Live and let Die' returns on the album, and their rendition of 'Kasmir' (with Slash) will take your breath away! I actually preferred their version to Bond's!The album isn't all the same sounding as there are some slower pieces but overall this is an impressive effort which will surely cement the group as a top group in their own right, and I am sure they can go onto be even more successful than Bond. Escala were the true winners of Britain's Got Talent and this album is proof! Don't miss it!
