CD Reviews

It sucks
06/06/1999
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The bands are no-namers, which wouldn't have been a problem if they had the guts to do daring interpretations of the songs. Instead all we get are Bowie songs that will make you wish you were listening to the originals instead... I could not recommend this album to anyone. Don't buy it."
Uh, If You Have Nothing Good To Say

"Okay, I admit to being a fan that buys it all. However, asgood as a "few" of these songs are, they amount to nothingmore than (duplicate) cover recordings. It appears that every singer trys desperately to sound 'just like David Bowie' and it does not go over well. Last trash - what in God's name is Brian Wilson's song, "God Only Knows" doing here? Is this a joke or a seriously messed up management problem! Borrow this and make a bootleg copy, if you don't mind spending the money on CD-RW's."
Fantastic Covers!

"I love Bowie, but these covers are some of the most unique I have heard of any of his music. It's like Bowie covering Bowie only each group has their own take on the song. Definetly one of the better tribute albums. Great price too. I don't understand why people are shunning this great tribute!"
