Finally a Tribute to Alterna/Goth Pioneers Love and Rockets!
The Smiths, The Cure and Love and Rockets were the Alternative/Indie Pioneers of the 80's & 90's. When 120 minutes on MTV was the place to find great new bands these guys were way ahead of the curve. From Goth to Pop to Experimental Electronica and Folk. L&R did it all first.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club would not exist without them.
Frank Black,The Dandy Warhols,Flaming Lips and Maynard from Tool all pay tribute on this comp packed with songs from a wide array of diverse Artists but, some of the stand out tracks are from newer acts like; Blaqk Audio (Davey & Jade of AFI) doing a more modernized electro version of "No New Tale to Tell". War Tapes does a dark and rocking " Love Me" that harkens back to L&R's Bauhaus roots. Other great tracks show the softer side of their career with Ian Moore/Lossy Coils doing "Sweet FA". Snowden, Astra Heights and Vex all turn in well played and ear catching tracks. A great way to learn about the roots of Alterna music while discovering some great new bands.

Bought mainly for Puscifer Cover but have been liking the other songs as well. Never really listened to L&R before.

Good cd. I got it just to hear the quality and sound of puscifer's recording (which is AWESOME), and the rest of the cd is good and has personality and a good sound.

Tribute albums are tough: you can't be too faithful and just make the listener say "I'd rather just hear the original", and if you make it too different you risk alienating the fan. All the tracks here are decent versions, and quite a few bands manage to put their own distinctive sound onto the track, even if it still doesn't always *add* anything to the original. (This, coming from the perspective of a long-time L&R fan.)

All that said, Puscifer, Blaqk Audio and Vex do great jobs (#2,4,14), and The Flaming Lips deliver the best interpretation on the album (#7). I also liked the Dubfire, Frankenstein 3000, and Chantal.. tracks just fine (#5,13,16). The rest? They're not bad versions, but I'd rather just hear the original...

All told, it's worth getting the whole thing for $5 used, rather than just downloading #2,4,7,14 for $3.50.

If you're really a fan of Love And Rockets' whole body of work and not just their self titled album, then you can probably really appreciate this tribute album. I'm just amazed with how well their work lends itself to these wildly different approaches. Having gotten to know and love the originals to all the songs on this album I wasn't sure what to expect. Surprisingly, I loved every track. They are more often than not quite different than the original in style, but I was pleasantly surprised with each new track.

I'm not familiar with Love and Rockets, so I apparently missed some good tunes back when they were hot. So I get to experience what I missed with this tribute album, and these artists sound stellar. I'll have to dig up the real deal and listen to the originals.

Much love for the whole thing..
Not all the tracks I listen to much vs original songs.. however layout flo works well as driving CD.

I'm a suckered for cover albums.. I wish there was more.

Some great covers of Love and Rockets classics. From the surprisingly catchy Better Than Ezra to Blaqk Audio this is a fun comp with some amazing artwork.
