Editorial Reviews

The Vegas Years is a compilation of cover songs by American Alterna-Rock band Everclear. Several of the tracks are new for this release, including "Rich Girl" and "Kicks". While "Our Lips Are Sealed" was originally recorded (and issued) in 1997, the version included on The Vegas Years is a newly-remixed version, featuring new guitar and keyboard parts supplied by current Everclear members Davey French and Josh Crawley. The album also features two live performances: "Brown Eyed Girl", which the band recorded in studio form for Learning How to Smile, and "867-5309/Jenny", which became a regular show-closer for the band in 2004. The album features tracks recorded throughout the band's career, including a few tracks that were previously released as B-sides. 15 tracks. Capitol. 2008.

Being a hard core Everclear fan I bought this without thought. When I first listened to it I was pretty surprised. It wasn't at all what I expected from an Everclear album. I soon realized that it was a cover album so I changed my expectations and continued to listen. I loved some of the songs right off the bat but it took me a little time to really warm to the entire album. While I definitely wouldn't want all of their future work to be like this I still found the album is be upbeat and fun. I love the live bits, it's like being at one of their concerts again. Don't expect this to be like their regular work but listen anyway, you might end up enjoying it. This definitely isn't my favorite Everclear album nor is it their best work but as far as cover albums go it is certainly 5 star worthy.

Been listening to this a lot. Cool covers and it rocks! "Kicks," "The Boys Are Back in Town," and "Our Lips Are Sealed" jump out at me. I think most people who claim to be Everclear fans will like this, and you don't even have to be a die-hard fan.

I have not been happy with the group/ Art, ever since the original members left. The "new" Everclear should change it's name and stop tarnishing the original's success. This is not a good album nor are the ones that followed.

While this sort of album might not get a ton of respect from hardcore fans, I find this new release a ton of fun. I enjoyed most all the songs, particularly Pocahontas, Boys are Back In Town, and Speed Racer. Hopefully this will lead to another studio album with new material. Good Fun.

Listen, these are cover tracks. So take it for what it's worth. These covers are for the most part, amazing. Who would've thought that a band full of dudes could pull of the Go-Go's classic "Our Lips Are Sealed?" I almost like this version more than the original itself. Another great one is "American Girl". I love Tom Petty, but I might enjoy this cover even more than his original, which is one of my favorite Petty tracks. I'm not going to review every track, but these are all either good to great. And these tracks are all recorded from the older Everclear, the one we love most. So, not only are we listening to some great songs, but even better, they're sang by Art and the ol' gang. And for those of us who have seen Everclear in person in the past few years, can appreciate the final track, a live version of Jenny. You almost feel like you're back at the show rocking out.

This might be the last good album we ever get from Everclear, so buy it and cherish it!

You need to know that this is a CD full of cover versions of hits from Thin Lizzy to The Go-Gos. Interesting song selection, I wonder if the band hand picked any of these songs though. Hats off to Alexis and company for not rehashing the same song but changing the chords, melody line, etc. to where their version has nothing to do with the original version and ends up being Everclear songs. On some songs it works, others it just a remake or cover version in tht title of the song only. Take "The Boys Are Back in Town" for example. The classic guitar riff of the original is nowhere to be found until the chorus. Same for many of these versions. Credit goes to the band for making each song their own. The songs are listenable and if you are not familiar with original, you may like the songs here. You must be an Everclear fan to like this album though.
