"Bile, The Copy Machine (Underground Inc., 2001)
I guess it was inevitable that Bile would release an "[x] Sings the Music of Your Life" collection (soon to be heard on oldies stations everywhere!). There have been so many tribute albums running around recently that almost any band could fill one of these. Bile keep it short (nine tracks) and surprisingly faithful to the originals, if run through the Bile filter; even a song that begs for desecration like "Do Ya Wanna Touch Me" is treated with kid gloves. The Go-Gos' "We Got the Beat" is converted over to keyboards, for the part, but it still recognizable. You'd never have thought Krzstoff had it in him. (The exception to the rule is "My Generation," which is completely made over into industrial metal, much to the betterment of the song itself.)
Special mention should be made of their version of Faith No More's "Midlife Crisis," during which I wondered more than once if Patton had joined them in the studio to record the track.
A worthy addition to the Bile canon. Fans and non-fans alike will find much here to enjoy. ****"
