Good music ruined by poor orchestration

"I bought the disk because I love the romantic music of John Barry. However, after listening to it, I was annoyed at the poor production values. Instead of soaring romantic themes, I heard uneven playing, with a strong emphasis on the beat similar to the amateurs who play in our local high school orchestra. You could imagine the conductor saying: one two three four. To make things worse, there were some sour notes.
In short, if you know nothing about music, and enjoy movie soundtracts, you'll like this. However, if your ability to enjoy music is the level of the average high school musician, try another record."
Awful recordings of great music

"This is perhaps the worst CD I have ever purchased. The conducting is atrocious and on some tracks the instruments actually sound of tune.Consider other full length John Barry soundtracks instead."
