"This CD sponsored by Schoolhouse Rock is a benefit album for Rock The Vote. It features rockers doing cover versions of old "America Rock" Schoolhouse Rock songs, plus some new songs. I liked the remakes a lot, the new songs I didn't like as much. But that may be due to the fact that I have no nostalgia for the new songs. "Rock the Vote" by the Virtuals is an okay song urging people to get out and vote. "I'm Just a Bill" is a great remake of a classic, featuring Issac Hayes as the Bill and Joan Osborne as the Boy. "Sufferin' Till Suffrage" is a fine remake by blues legend Etta James. "The Campaign Trail" is a fun song by original Schoolhouse rocker Bob Dorough. John Popper does a good job with his cover of "The Preamble". Essra Mohawk contributes the new song "Do You Wanna Party?", about the two party system. "Fireworks" is redone in a rap version by old school rappers the Sugarhill Gang. "Three-Ring Government" is a really good remake by the Roots with Jazzyfatnastees. "Get to Know Your Electoral College" by Spicy T & Shihan attempts to explain a concept that a lot of people don't understand. "Messin' With My Bill of Rights!" is a new song by original Schoolhouse rocker Grady Tate. This is an enjoyable album that benefits a worthy cause. Vote Kerry!"
