Product Description


Snot singer James Lynn Strait had a lot of friends, if this intensely emotional tribute is any indication. Strait died in a December 1998 car accident, with Snot on the verge of breaking big. Strait Up features a dozen of heavy rock's most prominent singers, including Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, Korn's Jonathan Davis, Incubus's Brandon Boyd and Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath paying homage to the late frontman. In 1998, Snot's Mikey Doling and John "Tumor" Fahenstock had music awaiting lyrics from Strait, who passed away before beginning the album. So the singers on Strait Up wrote their own lyrics to Snot's heavy music and recorded with the surviving members of Snot. The results are impressive. System of a Down's Serj Tankian offers up a eulogy in "Starlit Eyes": "The first to accept, the last to disappoint/Now you are free to roam the skies". Slipknot's Corey Taylor turns in a melodic but aggro "Requiem", singing: "I see the loss every time someone says your name". But it's the mellow emotion exuded by Sevendust's Lajon Witherspoon in "Angel's Son" that is the standout on a powerful album full of poignant triumphs. --Katherine Turman

3.0 out of 5 stars All in all, not bad June 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Strait Up is a success in the long run, but there are songs that just sucked or didn't belong.
For example, is it really nescessary for Fred Durst to plug Limp Bizkit yet again in a song dedicated to the passing of Lynn Strait, even when LB isn't even playing on the recording. And the lyrics are pathetic. Not a bad song, but Fred did a terrible job at the lyrics. They are laughable.
And the song with Mark McGrath from Sell-out Ray kinda sucks too. "Catch A Spirit" with Max Cavalara is okay, but not Soulfly quality. Brandon Boyd's song is "eh." And Serj's song is suprisingly not good. The rest are pretty good.
Highlight tracks include 2,3,8,11. Jon Davis, M.C.U.D, Lajon Witherspoon, and Corey Taylor did the best jobs.
The unreleased Snot song "Absent (13) is pretty good, but not astonishing.
If your a fan of Snot, or some of the lead singers from other bands on this recording, its a decent buy. Otherwise, "Eh"

5.0 out of 5 stars Strait Up - The Ultimate Tribute Sept. 25 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cd is one of my favorite disc's. I am a huge Snot fan and I hated it when i heard of Lynn's passing. I picked up this album cause its a must have if you are into Snot or the type of music at all. I never get sick of listening to it. All the singers did an excellent job on the lyrics. They really made this a tribute Lynn Strait. I believe everyone reading this should pick up this album. Its unbelievable.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Few Surprises Feb. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
I never have liked tribute albums because most of the time the songs are just half-assed by the singers. For example, Fred Durst's "Forever" is a really patheic attempt to having a meaning to. (hed) p.e.'s Jahred doesn't do much better to make a honorable tribute. Serj Tankian version of "Starlit Eyes" doesn't quite match up with Snot's demo of "Choose What". While he does so more meaning than the other two Max Cavalera's "Catch A Spirit" isn't much different from anything Soulfly had to offer. However there are a few highlights in my opinion. Jonathan Davis' "Take It Back" is quite a different approach with Snot backing him up instead of the almighty Korn. Sevendust's "Angel's Son" still makes me choke up to this day Lajon really shines in this track. Corey Taylor's "Requiem" shows that Corey isn't just screams that he is truely one of the better singers of today. Finally Snot's "Absent" truely shows how amazing the next album would've been had it not been for Lynn's death. "Sad Air" finishes the album in true grace with the haunting spoken words of Lynn himself. I'd recommend buying this used because there are a few meaningful songs but i was rather dissappointed in some people's performances.

3.0 out of 5 stars Album reveiw: Various Artists - Strait Up Dec 19 2002
By Brandon
Format:Audio CD
You have to give credit to the bands who thought this up to come up with a album to suport the memory of such a great person, but sadly as good as this album is, it isn't!
With hard great songs from bands like System of a down, Soulfly, Sevendust, and so on, how could you possible mess this up?, how about by adding Limp Bizkit, and Incubus into the mix.
Not the best in the world, but its not the bottom of the pit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Tribute To Lynn Strait Aug. 6 2002
Format:Audio CD
Most of music was originally written as Snot material and the lyrics and vocals are from various people. Some songs are better than others, but all are heart-felt. My favorite track is 'Take It Back' which features vocals from Jon Davis of Korn and Nathan Cox. The only song I dislike is 'Forever' which features Fred Durst. In the song he yells, "Limp Bizkit, forever!" You really shouldn't plug your band on a tribute album to a deceased friend. The bonus track is also pretty [weak]. Don't let songs from the likes of Fred Durst and Mark McGrath scare you away... although their bands [are not up to the same standard] they were obviously good friends of Lynn's.

This is such a good cd. I'd give anything if it didn't have to exist though. My personal favorite is Reaching Out by Mark. They're all right behind it though.
