Great introduction!

"The Heavy Classix CDs were my introduction to classical music, and it was a very successful introduction. Beginning with 'O Fortuna' (which you might recognize from any one of several movies including Excalibur) and continuing through a number of high-powered tracks, some of which (Finlandia, Sorcerers Apprentice) might be familiar to you, Heavy Classix 2 and its companion Heavy Classix are great places to learn about classical music and dispel yourself of the notion that classical music is boring."

"This CD and the first Heavy Classix are some of the greatest compilations of powerful brassy classical music ever! None of that wussy string concerto stuff, just plain gusto, the kind of music you want to play at top volume with the windows rolled down so everyone will know what kind of god you are. (IMHO) I LOVE this cd and so will you...they're hard to find get yours while you can!"

"Both CDs in the "Heavy Classix" series seem to target younger folks who may have a passing interest in classical music. Aside from the deliciously bad cover art on both, you also have the selected pieces, which are meant to be the loudest, most ballsy classical excerpts available. Listening to both volumes, I have a hard time imagining anyone not liking these. The recordings are clear and really give a shot to the crotch to anyone listening. I also like that a couple reviewers have blasted this out of their cars at full volume. It's a nice answer to your typically obnoxious bass-heavy idiot who pulls next to you at a stop. After listening to this, by all means seek out the originals. We all like greatest hits compilations, but the full force can only be felt in context. Still, it's a nice soundtrack to start to your day with. Bump it!"
