The album is very reminescint of 80's hair bands with some songs that rock out, with an occasional power ballad. It won't be the best album you ever buy, but it's a good time.
i have converted my tribute disc to mp3 so i can listen at work on my sun station, and often folks stop by to ask "who's playing that?!? that's a great cover!" many of the bands featured had some great ideas to input, and i highly recommend this to any who like either duran duran or punk/ska.
now, if only a punk/ska beatles tribute could happen :)
On the plus side, Goldfinger earn their gold watches for their take on "Rio." I don't want to describe this track in too much detail, lest I spoil the surprise(s). But really, check it out, it's hysterical! Other choice tracks include the Deftones' "The Chauffeur," Buck-o-Nine's "Hold Back the Rain," Home Grown's "Planet Earth," Reel Big Fish's swingin' version of "Hungry like the Wolf," and the Mr. T Experience's mod take on "Is There Something I Should Know."
On the negative side, we have not one but two bands offering disappointing versions of "Girls on Film": Abba tribute band Bjorn Again, whose version sounds like -- words fail me here -- a band imitating Abba playing a Duran Duran cover; and the Wesley Willis Fiasco, a band whose name will elicit chuckles, until you listen to them and realize the name doesn't go far enough. Also, the band that covers "A View to a Kill" (sorry, I forget the band's name) seems to have just one goal: to get the song over with as fast as humanly possible.
Other than those clunkers, there isn't anything on this CD that's less than good. That's 13 good-to-great tracks out of 16 total -- not a bad batting average for this sort of disc. Give this one a spin if you haven't already.
