CD Review: 2 Cellos - In2ition


2 Cellos
Sony Masterworks
Producer: Bob Ezrin
Score: 7 out of 10

This music is in a class by itself. In2ition is the second release for Croatian cellists Luke Sulic and Stjepan Hauser. They are classically-trained musicians, with one foot in tradition and another firmly entrenched in modern and classic rock and pop. Under the tutelage of legendary producer Bob Ezrin, six-string virtuoso Vai goes head to head with Sulic and Hauser on AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell.” Elton John also delivers a soulful version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well” and Rivera unleashes a provocative take on Muse’s “Supermassive Black Hole.” A listening experience you will not soon forget! ——Eric A.
