As with all tribute albums there will inevitably be the good, the bad and the plain ugly. Some of these efforts are far better than good, some of them a lot worse than bad and a couple that make plain ugly far more complicated than the mind can normally bear. Let's talk about the tracks you're going to love first, since there are some gems here that make the purchase more than satisfactory. Opening the show we find Jane Wiedlin doing an excellent version of "Foggy Notion", bringing modern punk chops to an old chestnut, and setting the standard for the acts that follow. Next up Frank Agnew does a worthy take on "Here She Comes Now", no easy task given the minimalist aspects of Lou's original. Unfortunately things turn for the worse for several tracks until track 9 when 20/20 turn in a credible performance on "I Can't Stand It" that includes a shambolic imitation Lou Reed guitar solo. Jevon Piper brings the Nico showcase "Sunday Morning" to life with some sweet harmonies and a remarkably faithful rendition of the original. Finally, summing up this section, Jack Grisham steals the show with a version of "Coney Island Steeplechase", a song that only diehard Lou fans would recognize as an outtake which only appears on the outtakes compilation album "Another View." Grisham probably wins the competition in that his version silences the original. Score 5 for the good. Considering Jonathon Richman's song "Velvet Underground" is an original composition that incorporates elements of a number of classic VU songs, I am not counting this one in the good category though it is very good.

Everyone knows that covers can either approximate the original or go for broke to create in effect a whole new song from the skeleton of the original.

that's my story, and i'm sticking to it.
also, perhaps the best music release of 2010.
if you like the VU, this is a no-brainer.
