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.
