Little that's come out of the rock underground since the alternative revolution has been of a distinctly sensual nature. Indie rockers dance around romantic entanglement, but seldom cut in. That's the case with this "Red Hot" compilation, which doesn't mean much of it doesn't have it's own pitiable appeal. A case in point is the album's opener, Freedom Cruise's "Sensational Gravity Boy," a characteristically tuneful and verbose Guided by Voices number that finds the new rock darlings working in tandem with the Breeders' Kim and Kelley Deal. Shayne Carter, ex of Straitjacket Fits, teams up with New Zealand countrymen the Verlaines on "Some Fantasy." Lois Maffeo and Rebecca Gates team on "Sotto Voice," one song that is baldly sexual, though no one's going to get it mixed up with "Let's Get it On." Two interesting one-man bands, Stephen Merritt (here billed as Future Bible Heroes) and F.M. Cornog (East River Pipe) come up with album highlights-a catchy updating of techno pop and a understated elegy for Kurt Cobain, respectively. --Steven Stolder

If you are a Grunge / indie fan, this music album will be a great for you. The Nirvana Cover (Molly's Lips) performed by the Vaselines is good one as well as the one performed by Meat Puppets.
In resume, it is a must :)
Before the internet there simply was no other to get exposed to these band unless you were lucky enough to know someone already hip to them. I am very thankful to the people that put this compiltion together. It opened up WORLDS! If you're looking to get a taste of what was happening beyond the radio signal in the 1980s start here. I like almost every song on the comp and for you it provides a good leaping point to see what you do like. I don't listen to cd's anymore but becuase of this comp I have sought out the old vinyl records and listen to those frequently.
The sign of a great comp is if it inspires you to dig and research and go beyond it, even while keeping it in listening rotation. This is a great comp.
Yeah, wisenheimer, the song is available elsewhere. But be "with it" and own it the way it first appeared and was lost to the scatter and flood of 90s independent rock.
