Reviews

  • Hooked me on the classics

    By rpjr64
    It was 1980’something and ‘Hook on Classics pt1’ play on the radio station 92.3 WKTU. It was a completely different sound at the end of the disco era. As a teen it led me to buy the album then it led me to recognize such classical songs in movies which led me to buy classical albums and appreciate classical music ever since. I forgot all about this album until today when I was looking for music by Edward Elgar and saw related choices. I have the vinyl record but now I have it on iTunes.
  • Great Album

    USD 11.99 for this album? It's not expensive.
  • Really wonderful

    I never would have heard of half this music before if 'Hooked' had not uncovered this for me. For instance "Dance of the Furies" was so wonderful that I sought out the original version, which opened up a whole new wonder for me. I also enjoy these songs as face paced workouts which I find quite fun. Please don't have a closed mind to these. Give them some time. They're great at what they do!

    I would never have been a classical music fan. These albums exposed me to classical music and got me curious to hear the original stuff and surprisingly found them wonderful. So I can say I enjoy rock, rap, country, and the classics.

  • A twist on classics that keeps you hooked

    I am so glad this collection made it to iTunes. My dad had the vinyl and played them when I was in primary school. It's a good mix of techno rhythms and classical masterpieces. If you are a purist, just open your mind and ears and enjoy.
  • Happy this album is on iTunes

    I had all of the Hooked On Classic cassett tapes in the 80's and listen to them while in my sewing room or on the treadmill. My kids grew up listening to them in the car. I have an 11 year old grandson that is musically inclined and showing an appreciation of Classical music. Besides being delighted to get this music on my iPod, I am sending my Wyatt a iTunes gift card ( I bet his mother will like hearing these classics again)
  • Long lost fun

    Oh my goodness, I remember listening to this with my mum when I was young. This was my first introduction to classical music and as a kid I loved it, never realizing it was classical music. This is such a fun album! I thought of this album while I was searching for something else; the image of the album flashed in my mind, I used to stare at the pretty colours while listening. I am so happy iTunes has it. As I am downloading the songs I am humming and whistling along, I remember every song. What a trip down memory lane! A new iTouch with this album will be a perfect gift for my mum, I am sure she has not heard this album in years.
  • Where's Your Sense Of Fun?

    By Speedbird 777
    I can't believe the po-faced "devoid of any true musical worth" review at the top of the page. Obviously written by someone with a ludicrously elitist view of the world. Hooked on Classics and its follow-ups introduced thousands of people to classical music for the first time, in a fun way, and encouraged them to explore the conventional recordings. Hooked on Classics is a great piece of musical heritage recorded by one of the world's greatest orchestras. This is MEANT to be fun; it is MEANT to be tongue-in-cheek. What is there not to love?
  • I heard it on American top40
