Trevor Horn / Reimagines: The Eighties
October 25, 2018 by Paul Sinclairtags: 1980s, trevor horn


New album • SIGNED copies available • Guest vocalists
Legendary producer Trevor Horn, often credited with ‘inventing the 80s’, now ‘reimagines’ the decade with a newly announced album of eighties classics recorded with ‘the Sarm Orchestra’ and a string of guest vocalists including Robbie Williams, Seal and Tony Hadley.

Reimagines: The Eighties (feat. The Sarm Orchestra) has some similarities with the recently announced 80s Symphonic album in that it contains big hits rearranged with an orchestral element, but on Trevor’s album these are new recordings from the ground up and nothing from the original track is in the mix. Also, Horn has the pedigree to make this a more interesting exercise.



Tracks include Tears For Fears‘ classic ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’ (sung by Robbie Williams), ‘Ashes to Ashes’ (featuring Seal), ‘Slave To The Rhythm’ (with Rumer), and ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ (Tony Hadley). Some have no guest vocalist which means either Trevor takes over vocal duties (he’s a good singer, of course) or they are instrumentals.

The album will be released (on CD only, for now) on 1 February next year and fans can pre-order a SIGNED copy from Trevor’s online store.

In the words of Alan Partridge - 'Sorry... that is awful'.

Music is listenable, but the vocals are just horrific.

The bit from 1.18 to 1.47 works well orchestrally. The harmonica seems like a baaad idea.
And yeah those vocals - ugh - he sounds like a cruise ship singer.
The Rev Jimmie Wood, best known as the singer from the Inspiral C....no not carpets but Crowns. Who the f&ck are they??

I like the electro bit from 3:31 to the end, but possibly because it's not that different from the original? This is one of those songs that people simply should not touch.

For those that might actually like some more versions,
the japanese release has instrumental versions of all the songs..

http://www.superdeluxeed...nus-cd-of-instrumentals/

http://www.superdeluxeed...-trevor-horns-new-album/

you can also listen to all of them on pretty much every streaming service IN JAPAN ONLY.

if anyone can rip them, or get them, let me know. i actually like a few of these songs,
but don't want to get the entire japanese cd unless i can find a cheaper copy.

I bought this album and wish I hadn't.

BM is the best track on it and it's not as good as Orkestra Obsolete, its best remix comparator.







I am a sucker for instrumental tracks though...
