Product Description

The Vegas Years is a compilation of cover songs by American Alterna-Rock band Everclear. Several of the tracks are new for this release, including "Rich Girl" and "Kicks". While "Our Lips Are Sealed" was originally recorded (and issued) in 1997, the version included on The Vegas Years is a newly-remixed version, featuring new guitar and keyboard parts supplied by current Everclear members Davey French and Josh Crawley. The album also features two live performances: "Brown Eyed Girl", which the band recorded in studio form for Learning How to Smile, and "867-5309/Jenny", which became a regular show-closer for the band in 2004. The album features tracks recorded throughout the band's career, including a few tracks that were previously released as B-sides. 15 tracks. Capitol. 2008.

Something Different July 26 2008
By Penelope - Published on Amazon.com
Being a hard core Everclear fan I bought this without thought. When I first listened to it I was pretty surprised. It wasn't at all what I expected from an Everclear album. I soon realized that it was a cover album so I changed my expectations and continued to listen. I loved some of the songs right off the bat but it took me a little time to really warm to the entire album. While I definitely wouldn't want all of their future work to be like this I still found the album is be upbeat and fun. I love the live bits, it's like being at one of their concerts again. Don't expect this to be like their regular work but listen anyway, you might end up enjoying it. This definitely isn't my favorite Everclear album nor is it their best work but as far as cover albums go it is certainly 5 star worthy.

Alright by me April 28 2008
By Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Been listening to this a lot. Cool covers and it rocks! "Kicks," "The Boys Are Back in Town," and "Our Lips Are Sealed" jump out at me. I think most people who claim to be Everclear fans will like this, and you don't even have to be a die-hard fan.

Fun to have Everclear back May 9 2008
By J. L. Howarth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While this sort of album might not get a ton of respect from hardcore fans, I find this new release a ton of fun. I enjoyed most all the songs, particularly Pocahontas, Boys are Back In Town, and Speed Racer. Hopefully this will lead to another studio album with new material. Good Fun.

They make the songs their own Dec 19 2009
By Hellion Zephreid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You need to know that this is a CD full of cover versions of hits from Thin Lizzy to The Go-Gos. Interesting song selection, I wonder if the band hand picked any of these songs though. Hats off to Alexis and company for not rehashing the same song but changing the chords, melody line, etc. to where their version has nothing to do with the original version and ends up being Everclear songs. On some songs it works, others it just a remake or cover version in tht title of the song only. Take "The Boys Are Back in Town" for example. The classic guitar riff of the original is nowhere to be found until the chorus. Same for many of these versions. Credit goes to the band for making each song their own. The songs are listenable and if you are not familiar with original, you may like the songs here. You must be an Everclear fan to like this album though.
Completely lacking in originality Feb. 2 2010
By D. Davenport - Published on Amazon.com
Everclear takes a number of popular songs and "makes them theirs". What this really means is they release an album of covers, remade to sound like every Everclear song that's been put out in the past 10-15 years. A band can get by on one or two covers every once in a while, but really, this album only shows how fall they've fallen. Save yourself the trouble and just go to any bar on a Friday night to hear a bunch of pretty good rock songs "interpreted" into completely flavorless rock.
