Compilation Album Reviews!
Artists and Groups |
If some of the entries are blank, that's to remind me to review them! Once again I've got a bit behind on my ever growing CD collection
- Virus 100 Alternative Tentacles compilation: I have been trying
to track down this CD for years and found it completely by luck in a record
store in my new home of Zurich. Damn fine CD it is,
featuring such well known, and some not so well known artists as Faith No
More, Steel Pole Bathtub, L7, Disposable Heroes of HipHoprisy, Sepultura doing
covers, actually it's better to say their own versions of Dead Kennedys' songs.
I say their own versions since most bare little resemblance to the originals!
If you like DKs and like modern alternative music, you'll probably like this,
but if you're more of a DKs and punk fan, and are not so eager to listen to
some of today's, rising/falling stars, then it probably won't be your cup
of tea! For example FNM's version of Let's Lynch The Landlord has Mike Patton
doing an Elvis Presley impression for it, and some of the other songs have
been "Country and Western-ified"!!!
Am Rep Motors 1995 models:
This is an Amphetamine Reptile
records compilation album! It's got some very good stuff, and a
couple of lame ones too! But it only cost about 4.99 (U.K.pounds).
basically it's your usual mixture of Am Reps hard-core bands.
Good if you like this sort of thing like me!
- Mesomorph Endurous:Big Cat records compilation:
this in the same store I bought Virus 100. Another great
compilations for the same price as a single(Maxi Disc), featuring
artists such as Cop Shoot Cop, Tad, Jesus Lizard, Unsane and
Barkmarket. Good old hard-core at it's best! very much the sort
of CD you don't need to listen to before you buy, and offers
no surprises due to the nature of the bands on it!
- Brassic Beats Volume One:This is a compilation
album I ordered from and by
Bloody good it is to! I only ordered it 'because I saw a link there
when I was reading about PWEI which mentioned them, and I got
interested. As you can see from this page I like compilation
albums, and this one is no exception. All the tracks are dance
music, but somehow the artists although sounding difficult
all belong on this album, making tracks which somehow successfully
mix "trip Hop", drum 'n' Bass, techno and various other "dancey"
type bits in their including classic disco. Well worth anyone's
