AllMusic Review by

At first it may seem a novelty, a Belgian girls’ choir covering hits (mostly of the alternative rock variety) in a choral style. However, the re-imaginations on DREAM ON are both inventive and simply hypnotic. The title track is the latter-day Depeche Mode single as opposed to the 1970s Aerosmith classic rock standard, which is a hint as to the direction of the musical selection of the Kolacny Brothers (conductor/arranger Stijn and pianist Stephen). And even the timeworn hits like U2’s "With or Without You," Verve’s "Bittersweet Symphony," and particularly Lou Reed’s "Perfect Day," are imbued with a haunting dispassion, an oblong angle which finds new beauty in splendorous songs.
