The War of the Worlds : The New Generation…

War of the Worlds - Next GenIf, like me, you are a fan of the original recording featuring the likes of; Richard Burton, Julie Covington, David Essex, Justin Hayward & Phill Lynot, then you would probably approach this with caution.

Let me put your mind at rest. This album is actually a very worthy update of the original. Liam Neeson does a very good job as the journalist and narrator. Gary Barlow (he of Take That fame) does a pretty good rendition of Forever Autumn. The rest of the cast manage to hold their own too. This update features; some new sounds, extra dialogue and the dreaded heat ray.  It has to be said though, that the sound effects of the heat ray are a tad on the weak side. Other than this very small gripe, this album is an enjoyable listening experience.

The original is a 10/10, but this update is a very worthy 8/10!
