Old school meets new school,

goodies are in full effect for P.E.'s
. The album as a whole is very solid,
with a few too many interludes of crap

They should have called it "Sym-
phony for the Devil," not only for the
obvious reason, but because arranging
some of the Stones' greatest songs for
an orchestra has such a hellish result
that neither classical music buffs nor
fans ofrock could possibly be satisfied
by it.
Indeed, while the London Sym-
phony Orchestra tries gamely to make

the best of it, the arrangements of the
songs are so poor that not only do they
sound silly but some of the Rolling
Stones' greatest songs are mauled in
the process.
Most of the album just sounds me-
diocre and not fully realized, but the
absolute nadir has to be Jerry Hadley's
ahem, theatrical vocals on the over-
blown version of "Sympathy for the
Devil," which sounds like Andrew
Lloyd Webber on a bad day. There are
decent tracks, however; "Dandelion"
and "She's Like a Rainbow" are toler-
able, and Marianne Faithfull's vocals
on "Ruby Tuesday" are affecting.
Jagger himself appears on an epic ver-
sion of "Angie," but one can't help but
feel thathe'slaughing allthe way to the
bank with this novelty piece.
