"This album is mediocre. I liked some of the new vocals, and the first remake of Alice was wonderful. The techno remake of Black Planet could have been left off, and the Valentine remake was pretty good. Overall only the die-hard fans of the Sisters should buy this album to add to their collection."

"This CD has some beautiful covers. I use the word 'some' sparingly, however.The Shroud's rendition of Alice is excellently performed and amazingly concieved. If you like to buy CDs for a single song (as opposed to the 'N' alternative), buy this one.Automatic Head Detonator does a brilliant cover of Black Planet. Truly different and inspired industial-metal gives a new light to a Sisters great. Too bad the band doesn't seem to exist. As far as I or anyone can tell, they have only ever recorded this one song -- ever. My mates and I reckon that the Cleopatra guys got together a band to fill in the gap in the 72 minutes available -- too bad it surpassed the quality of a lot of the other forgettable or regrettable covers on the rest of the disc.Much of the work, as I said, is strictly forgettable. A few pieces are truly despisable, and unfortunately balance out the good Shroud and AHD points...The Afterhours cover, admittedly, would work well as background music to play on your porch to scare the kiddies on Hallowe'en -- it sounds about like the 'spooky moods' sound effects CDs that go on sale in October.And on the other side of the black planet lies David E. Williams absolutely abominable, utterly nauseating cover of Black Planet. To take a Sisters classic and -- parody is the only word that fits. Yet it's not a joke. Why in the world Cleopatra keeps including this untalended and annoying twit on their compilations is beyond me, unless perhaps to highlight the sometimes dubious talents of some of the newer bands they feature.I might consider going to a David E. Williams show -- but only to start a brawl in hopes that the schmuck would get drawn in and trampled, thus reducing the chances we might all have the misfortune of hearing his terrible tones. I doubt even his mother likes his music (or him)."
This album is an offense to Sisters.

"I am a big fan of Sisters of Mercy and I have all the albuns.
This tribute is a offense to the band.
It is ridiculous.
Never buy it."
