Great alternative to normal Dread Zeppelin music

"At first I thought this music was no good. But being a fan of Dread Zeppelin for a long time, I started to play this CD over and over and got used to the music and I enjoy it enough I chose to play this album in my car over to listening to the radio! With very few good music to listen to nowadays, this would be the album to get. It has Led Zeppelin music in ways that were never heard of before and TortElvis and the band are getting better at it with every new CD that comes out. Way to go guys!The ownly downfall with this band is they keep doing Led Zep over and over, they should come out with something new and exciting once in awhile. But otherwise, A+ work if you like classic rock done by Dread Zeppelin!"

"When Led Zeppelin hits become almost unrecognizable, yet take on a new rhythm and melody all their own, that's musicianship, man. Having been a "Dreadhead" for years I always loved the innovative interpretation this band lends to Plant and Page's rock classics--especially from a reggae angle with an Elvis impersonator thrown in just for good measure. The result is music unlike anything you've heard before, which is Dread Zeppelin's tongue-in-cheek charm via their (relatively) recent CD, DEJA VOODOO.This is a new mix of all the Dread Zeppelin fixtures of years gone by, only the tracks are more gloriously irreverent, while at the same time masterfully done. These dudes can flat out play and sing, as Zeppelin staples including "Whole Lotta Love," "Lemon Song," "Going to California," and "Stairway to Heaven" are recycled through a smoke-filled kaleidoscope of rhythm-and-blues sound. And "Heartbreaker" is Tortelvis at his impersonating best, while the CD even does a brief spoof of Peter Frampton and his talking guitar. DEJA VOODOO is Dread Zeppelin at full band evolution; the reggae singing and sound is so laid-back you can practically smell hemp coming from the CD player. Like the Zeppelin band they mimic, these guys are also getting long in the tooth, but their music is still original and very unique.
A tough one, but grows on you

"Definitely a departure for DZ. Tort Elvis is barely audible. No opportunity to do the claw. Sounds a lot like UB40 in an elevator. But then some songs are more reminiscent of NIN. Hard to even recognize the original songs.Yet, it oddly grows on you. I just hope they don't feature it in their road show. Much prefer the original sound, but they had no where to go with it, unless they changed there name to Talking Dreads."
