And to be frank , at first i didnt like it at all, or maybe i was in denial since i had no interest in either classical or cross-over music at that time. But for some odd reasons (yea it was denial) i kept listenning...

I'll have to agree and disagree with Rijko on that one. Bach Street Prelude is on of my favorite that make my top 5 VM list. I find it to be a very playfull and engaging remake of that classical piece. She did not alter the origial spirit of the piece, she simply improved on it, extracting its full...

Hummm ... I would tend to agree with Arioch ...
