2.0 out of 5 stars Not a Great Tribute, but A few Gems June 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
I did not expect much from this tribute to begin with, honestly, I never was a huge Pixies fan but I found some of their tunes inviting. I have always favored their Mineappolis counterparts: Replacements and Husker Du. However, I thought Id pick this Cd up and give it a try, I mean, it couldnt hurt. I thought the Get up Kids version of Alec Effiel was great. It sounded alot like the original, but had a get up feel to it, sort of giving it their own personal touch. I was dissapointed by Weezer, as many were. Im a weezer fan by the way. However, I read a few reveiws and I cant understand why people dont see the "Dragginess" of Superdrag's "Wave Of Mutilation". I always felt Black Francis sang it so dark and dreery, with its dreery feeling to just hte whole song. I felt the Drag built well on what Francis was trying to do, by just turning it into a lot fresher poppier tune. I mean, its hard to sing "on a wave of mutilation" without soujnding dreery, but I felt Superdrag pulled it off. PErsonally I dont recomend this album, however, Alec Effiel has been released on The Get-up Kids "Eudora" LP, and word is "Wave of Mutilation" will appear in a future unrealeseds, live, etc album by Superdrag. So Id keep your eyes open.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wait, you people bought this for the Weezer song?! March 27 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Alright, so I can say that I'm a Weezer fan, but only a fan of pinkerton and select blue album songs. However, I can't understand ANYONE who bought this album for the Weezer song. I must say you people all lose. However, I bought this for two reasons: 1. I buy Reel Big Fish stuff, simply because I figure, they get three cents for my buying the cd, and that three cents might make them not die. 2. How can you not buy a CD by a company called the glue factory with a crazy scared horse for it's logo!?!?!?!?
Enough of that, this album is very worthwhile in my humble opinion. I think that the album starts off nicely, and really shows the mood of the CD. The song goes from nothingness into a loud beat and then the more mellow song performed by Eve 6. I think the album for the most part follows this pattern of giving you some downtime, a little jolt, and then a little more downtime. I've been using it for my in class and walk to class music and it's making life so much more enjoyable! Check it out, if you're looking at this I think that you have the potential of liking it!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars only because it's the Pixies Oct. 14 2000
By J. Lowe
Format:Audio CD
As for the record, like I said it gets 5 stars because it's the Pixies. Even awful bands, like Eve 6, can sound good when they cover fabulous music. While Reel Big Fish's cover of 'Gigantic' was weird as crap, and took a little while to get used to, it is nice to hear a different take on the song. Too many of the songs are just the band playing the song like the Pixies did. Where's the originality? Eve 6, Braid, and Teen Heroes are just awful on this disc. I mean, the way Braid played 'Trompe Le Monde', which is a wonderful Pixies track, is terrible. During the second section of each verse, where there is the high guitar part, they TOTALLY KILL the tempo, and thus the whole feel of the song. Originality is fine, as long as it is constructive. They just plain killed that song. Awful.
Thankfully, the disc is saved by great tracks by Weston, The Get Up Kids, Samiam, Sense Field, and The Promise Ring.
For all of you who bought this album for the one Weezer track, you could have done yourself a favor by buying Doolittle or Trompe Le Monde instead and finding out where that sound you like soooooo much ACTUALLY CAME FROM.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get The Muffs' new album instead July 14 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm so glad I came to this site before purchasing this album when I saw it this afternoon in a record store. I wanted to scope out opinions, and it seems Pixies fans aren't happy with the songs. I could barely make it through the sound clips here; every note sounded like a sham. I agree that it sounded like no thought went into varying the songs at all, with the exception of "Trompe le Monde." I shouldn't criticize the whole project w/o hearing it, but ... You can't just pick up a guitar and be like the Pixies. Unless you're Kim Shattuck & co., of the Muffs, who, to my knowledge, have never claimed to be among the legions of musicians who look to the Pixies for inspiration. Yet they probably do, and if so, they have the skills to prove that they can learn from an influence, rather than just attempt to sound like it. The fear is always the same for tribute albums: Hearing so-so bands cover music you love is depressing, upsetting. What a lie to say that top-notch bands (Eve 6?) are on this record. The Clash tribute got Indigo Girls. That's pretty amazing, and they did a great job. I don't see why the Pixies tribute couldn't draw artists of a similar caliber.

3.0 out of 5 stars mediocre tribute to incredible band June 24 1999
Format:Audio CD
it sounded like a good idea at the time, i suppose, but i do take heart in knowing for a fact that black francis (frank black, whatever, make up yr mind...), kim deal, dave lovering, and joey santiago are all having a good laugh at this. the covers are for the most part unoriginal and very uninspired, and with the exception of a couple of the bands (e.g. superdrag and the getupkids), the line-up is entirely too corporate to do any member of or song by the pixies justice. most of these bands are name droppers and feel hip just mentioning the name of the pixies and in no way show any influence by the pixies in their music, unless they complete rip them off repeatedly. this record isn't bloody horrible because the songs are all well written, but half the bands should sod off because they didn't deliver halfway admirable covers. but, reel big fish's cover of 'gigantic' rocked my lame ass, and i hated them to begin with. i wish i was having a dance party i could play the song at...

Seriously, how bad of a band do you have to be to mess up a Pixies song? I'd've thought these babies were indestructable...apparently not. Read more
