"Lazlo Bane's 1996 remake of Men At Work's "Overkill" is one of the best remakes of the 1990's. Featuring a cameo vocal by the former 'Men At Work' frontman, this version of the song is clearly a superior rock-and-roll version of the original. That said, the rest of "11 Transistor" is generally a passable but unremarkable garage-rock album. There are a couple of above-average tracks (only slightly above-average), but on the whole the disc is not a memorable production. Certainly nothing on the album comes close to the polished "Overkill" remake.Lazlo Bane's frontman was a former member of "School of Fish", a band who's first album, the self-titled "School of Fish", is still one of my personal favorites 10 years after its release. I suggest saving your money on "11 Transistor" and instead making an investment in "School of Fish" and look for the 1997 promotional CD single of "Overkill" which includes three variations of this excellent remake."
Outstanding power pop with a melancholy twist.

"Full disclosure: I have a very very indirect connection to the band. In fact I got the CD free from a friend of the band who I know well. My initial reaction when he gave me the disc: "Oh great. I'm sure this is going to suck."Surprise! This is a GREAT CD and one which I have listened to many, many, many times. To my ears, it combines elements of the Replacements' later albums, XTC, and Men at Work (!). Not the usual stuff. But excellent. Where's the follow up?"
You won't regret it!

"This CD is EXCELLENT! This is not the CD with the Scrubs theme song--that album is "All the Time in the World." This album, in my opinion, is much better. I only like a few songs on the other album, and feel that I wasted my money when I could have just downloaded "Superman" from Itunes. However, I love almost all the songs on this album--especially track 10 "Overkill"--which features Collin Hays.
