Basement Jaxx's music has always hinted at the epic and symphonic, so one can understand the temptation to take things one step further by employing an actual orchestra, Metropole Orkest of the Netherlands, to reinterpret their hits in quasi-classical mode.

The treatments range from Schifrin/Morricone atmospherics to full on Prokofiev/Tchaikovsky bombast, with results which are variable, but the scary choral, Omen-style version of "Where's Your Head At" is a hoot.
