4.0 out of 5 stars More than 0 but Less Than Five Feb. 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK, I never saw the movie nor read the novel--the closest thing I got to Less Than Zero was first the songs by Poison and the Bangles. It wasn't till later that I got the soundtrack and found a few more things that were laudable, as well as a few cover songs from the 60's and 70's.
Whatever it is Steve Tyler has caught, it sure isn't "Rocking Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu," originally done by Huey "Piano" Smith and popularized by Johnny Rivers. Joe Perry and the rest of Aerosmith are OK, but even by Tyler's standards... please someone give him some cough syrup.
Ringing in that final curtain, whether it be by a long life of self-destructive activity, or simply having had it with life, is made poignant by Roy Orbison's "Life Fades Away," which is also a goodbye to a loved one. "My time has come the clouds are calling/December wind has come my way/and now I feel the world falling/all at once, it's too late, life fades away." How often too this line sings to me, especially nowadays: "I'm tired of tomorrow/lost for today/I long to be at peace forever." A near tie with the Bangles as my favourite song here.
Inbetween Look What The Cat Dragged In and Open Up And Say Ahh!, hard-metal badboys Poison did this decent version of KISS's "Rock And Roll All Night." Not much variation in the guitars and drums--it's as if they did a karoake version, but they don't mess it up.
The two rap songs here aren't too impressive. LL Cool J's slow and anemic "Going Back To Cali" is built around a jazz trumpet melody and consists of bass and some scratching. Public Enemy's "Bring The Noise" is the original version sans Anthrax and is the better of the two due to Chuck D's snappier and stronger vocalled rap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get It For Danzig's Songs. Feb. 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
Overall this album is pretty mediocre, the exceptions being the 2 songs involving Glenn Danzig. I am a huge Danzig fan, and "You and Me (Less Than Zero)" is one of my all time favorite songs that he has recorded. It is definitely different than most of his other work, and it vividly illustrates what a fantastic voice he has, and what a great songwriter he is. It's kind of strange to hear the song, it's more of a slick pop arrangement rather than the hard rock that Glenn Danzig is known for, but like everything else he has done, it's awesome. Very powerful.
"Life Fades Away," written by Glenn and Roy Orbison, is great as well. Roy Orbison is a legend, one of the most original voices in rock music. (As is Danzig.) "Life Fades Away" is haunting and memorable. I agree with the previous reviewer that I wish Glenn would record a version of this song. (As he did with "Thirteen" written for Johnny Cash.) Get this CD for these two songs that Danzig is in on. It's worth it.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Bunch of Lame Cover Songs May 28 2000
Format:Audio CD
I wouldn't get this either. It also has only 1 Aero song, and it's available on Box of Fire. If you are a hardcore fan and don't have Box then you will get this, but if you don't then don't get it because there are very few good songs on it. The songs by other bands on here (especially Poison, as usual) are inferior to the originals, many of which weren't even good the first time around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epitomy of 80's decadence Jan. 15 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album has two of the greatest covers of all time:slayer's rousing version of In A Godda Da Vida and The Bangles incredible remake of Hazy Shade of winter. Who could ever forget the scene when the movie opens and that song plays, it is simply breath taking. This album features alternative 80's tunes that is essential to any cd collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Danzig's Song April 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
You & Me (Less Than Zero) is actually an interpretation of the song "To Sir, With Love" with different lyrics. Listen to the 2 songs consecutively and its almost note-for-note. I would love to hear Glenn sing a version of the song he wrote for Roy Orbison to sing "Life Fades Away".
