5.0 out of 5 stars I Love It April 3 2010
Format:Audio CD
Really nice collection of many great songs. At the first hearing, you know it's gonna be another awesome album. The sound is pretty good and really different for each song. The melodies pleasantly stick in your head. That's the kind of cd that I want to listen over and over but I want also not to be used too quickly to it so I have to restrain myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Good, Some Great, Some Bad March 17 2010
By D. L. Fleenor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those albums I have been waiting for since finding out about it. I have been a fan of streetlight since part of the group was with Catch 22. This album has some great stand out songs (Hell, Trobadour, Red Bouncing Ball, Such Great Heights, good songs that I enjoy (Punk Rock Girl, Linoleum, Me and Julio) and some that I weren't into (Tracks 1 and 3). Overall, that leads to a 4 star rating. This is the first time I would give this group a 4 out of 5 on anything. I think I prefer their original work more than the covers on this album. Please release original material Streetlight!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for narrow musical tastes July 25 2010
By x - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you only like ska and the ilk, this album probably isn't for you. If you don't have a wide range of musical taste and have never been exposed to top 40 hits from eras gone by, this album isn't for you. Some of the music isn't even from top 40 charts, such as Mason Jennings, "Birds Flying Away". I like a wide range of music, but this song was completely obscure to me. Having said that, knowing that it was originally a folk song, I can't help but like Streetlight's take on it. They bring themselves into every song. Some of the songs sound like tributes, others have new spins and interpretations. I can see how some people are going to have mixed feelings about it. I enjoy the risk the album takes with songs that are almost standards in the punk world and even with Paul Simon's music. The could have easily done an album like Me First and the Gimme Gimmes (great band, awesome covers btw) where everyone in the world knows the songs and kick the tempo in, but they didn't. This isn't just a ska/punk band (or whatever you want to label Streetlight as)doing brash, fun, over-tempo covers.
If you are truly a Streetlight Manifesto fan and aren't entirely caught up in the punk/ska box ("I always crack a smile when I see your punk clothes, you try try but you'll never fit in..." 9mm and a 3 piece suit), this album gives you a peak through the keyhole and into the living room of the bands tastes, likes and influences.
This is a music lovers album, not just for ska fans.

Great cover album. Truly Streetlight through and through. Oftentimes covers bother me, especially punk covers, even though I love punk; sometimes it just seems forced. There are several songs on this album, though, that I like even more than the originals!
